In Chile odour issues are becoming critical. The community is putting pressure on authorities and industry is being forced to take actions in order to minimize odour nuisances. There are approaches that allow delivering "reliable" results such as odour dispersion modelling, yet the question remains on how reliable the result of modelling can be. Are the results of modelling a true representation of the real odour impact and –most importantly– nuisances? In order to check the results obtained from a dispersion model, and validate how representative they are, it is essential and necessary to verify these. In this paper two case studies are presented that illustrate how methodologies by panel field can validate parallel modelling approaches. In both case, validation process was a valuable tool for detecting errors and obtaining reliable results. We conclude that modelling results must be validated by another methodology or they can be clearly misleading.

ONOSE-8 ® a New Stationary Dynamic Dilution Olfactometer made in Quebec

on .

O-nose8    The market of olfactometers is rapidly growing and changing. As we saw in December, a new portable olfactometer named Scentroid SC302 came out and fresh from the bakery. That was a little and nice surprise for all of us and a shot for the olfactometer market dominated at this time by the German makers of the ECOMA TO8. This time, and just a few months after the show up of the Scentroid SC302, we have a new piece of engineering coming to the stage: The Onose-8 ® dynamic dilution olfactometer.

   The Onose-8 ® dynamic dilution olfactometer is the result of many years of research and development by the engineers and scientists from a consulting firm based in Quebec. The Onose-8 ® olfactometer is designed according with the following standards:

  • ASTM 679
  • EN 13725
  • VDI 3881 and 3882

Scentroid SC302, a New Mobile Olfactometer has come Into Scene

on .

Scentroid SC302   A new single-port mobile olfactometer that meets all international standards such EN 13725 and ASTM E679-4 has come into the market.  This device may be a very serious competitor for a well known German dynamic olfactometer.

   This fully automated PLC controlled olfactometer uses mass flow controllers as his direct competitor, however the main advantage of this device is that it comes with a Siemens PLC and touch-screen interface, transforming this sofisticated device into a very simple and easy to use equipment. No need for a laptop to control this olfactometer.
