New air filter to destroy odours

Air purification developer iPURtech has developed a new air filtering system which, it claims, destroys odours, ammonia and hydrogen sulphide as these gasses pass from poultry shed to atmosphere.

Single fans may have a twin cartridge module fixed on the incoming air side, while fans grouped at the end of sheds can have their entire output cleaned with a multi-cartridge wall.

“The odours are not masked or absorbed, but destroyed on a honeycomb catalyst which has minimal resistance to the airflow,” says the company. “The process breaks these unwanted chemical gasses up into smaller harmless units which are odourless and safe to exhaust.”

The system, once installed, does not require any regular chemical additions or maintenance other than a wash down during changeovers. iPURtech is poised to install the new system at two broiler farms in the UK.
