New touchscreen control for fully automated monitoring and regulation of odorizing systems
In nearly all countries, continuous, proportional odorizing and monitoring is mandated by law for potentially hazardous or highly explosive gases with no natural odor. Lewa GmbH has developed a new Odor Control Unit (OCU) in order to fulfill this need efficiently and without requiring a major commitment of time and personnel. The system continuously compares the target and actual concentration of the odorant, so that regular inspections of the odorizing systems can be discontinued within four weeks, or...
