Performance & Sizing Inquiries
Wager is happy to help you to determine what odor control valve and system is right choice for your situation. Above is a specification guide for each model available. For a more precise determination of the longevity of the media for each system, please see the estimation calculator below. A Wager representative will be happy to get in touch with you to provide the system that best matches to your inquiry.
Odor Control Valves & Systems Specifications
Lift Station Sizing Inquiry
Common problems and situations
Aluminum doors or hatches not sealed. -- Cover doors with Heavy Duty Mat allowing gasses to be forced through the Wager Scrubber (Commonly known as a 3/4" stall Mat) A mat is preferred for easy access.
New Construction Stations -- Wager recommends sealed hatch doors
Manhole prior to lift station -- Use our Model 3000 Manhole Scrubber , which will help with venting along with odor control. If preferred, add a water tight manhole lid and seal around it to prevent air from escaping.
NOTE: Airflow numbers are vital in determining the size of the scrubber required for odor control. If the volume of air is too strong, the gases will not have enough residence time in the media to scrub it effectively.
Gravity Sewer Sizing Inquiry
Common problem situations
Watertight System (produces higher PPM of H2S gas). Scrubbers should be sized up with additional media to handle the higher exiting gases.
Rain or flood events, especially on a downhill line can create much higher airlows (CFM). This situation can sometimes cause wastewater to overflow out of the vent. In downhill situations, a larger scrubber may be needed. Another solution to prevent overflow into the scrubber is using a Wager vent check valve. Please see Wager's 1300 series Check Valve.
Turbulent air that is caused by a dramatic drop in the line or in a 45-90 degree turn in the piping can create the need for a larger scrubber to handle the excessive CFM (airflow)
