Lava Rock the preferred Odour Media for Anaerobic Digestion

February 5th, 2020

 

The challenge of disposal and processing the municipal gas wastes into the atmosphere from anaerobic digestion, which is a source of offensive odours and a problem to the local environment. Controlling the odours generated by landfill activities is a challenge facing the waste management industry today. Lava Rock Odour Control Media is becoming a popular choice to help with the off gasses. This is due to its key attributes including;

 

 

Low capital and installation costs

Low pressure drop during the life of the plant

Allows high bed depths and therefore small installation footprint

Low empty bed contact times

Good removal performance

Tolerance to variable and shock loads

Not seriously affected by extremes of temperature

Suitable for hydrogen sulphide and mercaptans alike

Equally suitable for industrial applications and VOC control

 

Mossel Bay Desanilisation Plant

 

Lava Rock Odour Control Media is rapidly replacing the traditional biomass support systems of peat/heather, wood chip and mussel shells. Not actively participating in the biological process pumice is not “consumed” in the manner of the alternatives and therefore has a much longer life (typically greater than 15 years). It does not compact and retains its original low pressure drop and hence low running costs.   For more information or if you require to speak to one of our Process Engineers,  please Contact Us

Fine Pumice Powder used within the Paint Industry

December 4th, 2019

Pumice fine powder is being used increasingly in the paint and coatings industry, this is an alternative to traditional fillers due to its low density and unique particle morphology. Pumice powder provides Interior paints with Burnish resistance, flatting, low sheen and low film porosity. The use of Pumice in exterior paints and stains provides outstanding tint retention, mildew resistance acid resistant giving frost free surface and increased cracking and flaking resistance. Pumice powder can also be mixed into emulsion paints to change their colour or simply mixed with water to use as a wash. The hardness, chemical resistance, and abrasive qualities of pumice powder, also make it deal for floor and deck coatings. Pool deck coatings have been successfully formulated with pumice powder and in some cases pumice grains for a number of years.
