Air before oxidation   Purified air after oxidation



General odor problems can also be a problem although not toxic, certainly annoying and/or costly if it affects your business's products service or employee productivity. Many processes generate odors that although unpleasant do not fall under the guidelines of OSHA, EPA or FDA. Outside air intakes can also draw in odors (i.e. fast food smells, agricultural odors and rotting vegetation just to name a few).


Air handling systems for commercial buildings are required to bring in "fresh air" to dilute indoor air pollution. However, the air that is brought in is not adequate to dilute the building VOC's and odors. Often the outside air is more polluted and adds to the problem rather than helping the problem. Most buildings have filtration, but in most cases the filters are for particulate removal and cannot remove fumes, gases or odors. The rare buildings that have filters for removal of fumes, gases and odors may experience these problems because they may be undersized or are not changed often enough to perform correctly.


These gases are organic carbon based compounds. These compounds can easily be broken down by means of oxidation. Oxidizing these compounds will reduce their toxicity and annoying odor. Most products do not remove the problem, rather they try to cover it up or trap it in some filter that will only work when clean. See TriMed's product guide to see this environmentally safe system work for you.
