Ozone Odor Control System
Waste Compactors - Compactor Options
- Generates ozone, a powerful oxidizer that breaks down odor molecules and converts them into water vapor and other odorless, harmless gases
- Eliminates the molecules that attract vermin, insects and animals
- Available in various sizes to meet your specific application
Offensive trash odor in a refuse storage or pickup area can be a negative reflection on your business or facility. In addition to the impact on the community, the odor creates an unpleasant work environment for employees and may cause complaints from neighboring businesses and residents. Such complaints may result in violations and fines from the local health department. Most importantly, the odor can attract unwanted pests.
Marathon’s ozone-generating unit electronically eliminates odors from the compactor and disposal areas for a more pleasant environment. The Ozone Odor Control System significantly reduces bacteria growth and eliminates compacted garbage odor, prevents fermentation, and destroys pest-attracting odors. The system can be directly installed on Marathon Vert-I-Pack® compactors. Other Marathon compactors require a remote unit with a separate 120-volt power source.
￼￼Unlike deodorant systems which only mask odors, Marathon’s Ozone Odor Control System actually destroys odors and the bacteria responsible for creating these odors.
Marathon’s system pumps ozone into the odor source of the waste compactor. For example, if your compactor is a Marathon RJ-250 self-contained compactor/container, ozone would be pumped from the remote Ozone Odor Control System through a hose with a “Y” fitting that leads to both the container and the compactor chamber. The best results are obtained when the ozone is pumped into enclosed areas. With the ozone pumped in, the odor-producing bacteria’s metabolism is increased to the extent that it is unable to survive. With the bacteria unable to carry on the decaying process responsible for the unpleasant gases, odor is eliminated. The odor molecules are converted to water vapor and other odorless, harmless gases.
Marathon’s Ozone Odor Control System is available as an option in sizes proportional to your waste compaction application.
