New OdaTech Pump Station Odour Control System Installations

In the last six months, OdaTech has installed several new odour control systems in Western Australia.  Three were retrofitted to existing waste water pump stations to deal with odour complaints from nearby residents, and one was installed as part of the installation of a new wastewater pump station in a rapidly expanding suburb in Perth’s north.

Wanjeep Street Wastewater Pump Station, Mandurah

The existing infrastructure at Wanjeep Street Wastewater Pump Station was not well sealed, and as a result odorous gasses were leaking out of the system and irritating nearby residents.  Rather than undergoing a costly refurbishment to completely seal the pump station, Water Corporation (WA) elected to install an OdaTech odour control system.  The ventilated nature of the system means that the lids to the existing infrastructure do not need to be sealed, and the system was designed with a capacity of 900m3/h of foul air – enough to fully treat foul air from the planned upgrades to the pump station in the future.

Armanta Road Wastewater Pump Station, Bunbury

Armanta Road wastewater pump station is only a small one, however it is located within metres of nearby resident’s homes.  The leak of foul air was so strong that it made even going outside at the wrong time of day unpleasant, and drew many complaints for nearby residents.  OdaTech installed an appropriately sized system – able to treat 150m3/h of foul air, which has been very successful – testing during commissioning showed that the system removed 100% of hydrogen sulphide gas – no H2S was reported post-treatment during an entire week of testing.

Clubhouse Drive Wastewater Pump Station, Dunsborough

Clubhouse Drive is appropriately named as the pump station is located on the golf course. It is also located next to a new housing development, and the odour leakage from the existing pump station was drawing complaints from both residents and golfers.  OdaTech’s system – designed to treat 600 cubic metres of foul air each hour – has completely solved the odour issues in the area.

Morwell Street Wastewater Pump Station, Yanchep

Yanchep is a rapidly expanding area north of Perth, and the Water Corporation is installing new infrastructure in order to keep up with demand.  As a part of a new wastewater pump station installation in the area, six small underground OdaTech OdaVent odour control units were installed into the driveway under completely trafficable lids.  As the driveway is a necessary feature for the pump station, the odour control system does not create any addition to site footprint, and future odour complaints are completely avoided.
