Wastewater Treatment Odor Control

Wastewater treatment plants must be good urban neighbors

by ensuring that odors from their processes are minimized.

Hydrogen sulfide, or H2S, forms in the early processing

stages, and is typically the primary cause of odor emissions.

Large urban wastewater plants have a growing number of

odor treatment options from which to choose – many of which

require the use of robust and reliable air moving equipment.

Power Generation

Power generation is a complex process. It takes an act of

congress (figuratively and literally) to build, operate and

maintain a power generation facility. Ventilation equipment

should not add to this complexity. Rather, the equipment

should be tough enough to avoid operational failure and to

minimize installation and repair work. The rugged, high-

performance fans Aerovent provided to a state-of-the-art

hybrid energy center, were ideal for the task. Aerovent was

chosen for this project because of their reputation for building

large custom fans for extreme industrial applications.

Steel Manufacturing

A steel plant located in the Midwest produces carbon,

stainless, and electrical steels; hot and cold-rolled steel; as

well as aluminum-coated stainless steel. The plant’s hot strip

mill building is a large facility where slabs of steel are rolled

into steel coils. The building is currently ventilated with

upblast roof exhaust fans. Access for routine maintenance is

difficult, and consequently, the roof exhaust fan bearings are

beginning to fail.

Hydroelectric Power Station 

The Beauharnois Hydroelectric Power Station on the Saint

Lawrence River in Quebec, Canada is one of the largest

hydroelectric power plants in the world. Located 25 miles

southwest of Montreal, the main building containing the

power station is constructed atop the Beauharnois Dam.

Hydro-Quebec, owner and operator of the dam, brought in

Dessau, one of Canada’s largest engineering-construction

firms, to revamp and modernize the power plant which stretches

nearly a half mile across the Saint Lawrence River and contains

38 hydroelectric turbines capable of generating up to 1,903 MW

of electrical power.
