Odour Investigation

We operate a specialised odour sampling and analysis service, utilising internationally recognised sampling and analysis methods.

Offensive or persistent odours generate more community complaints than any other air contaminant.

A dynamic olfactometer is used identify the concentration of the odour (expressed in odour units).

Ektimo's olfactometer is mobile and may be relocated anywhere for special projects.

Odour can be sampled from the following sources;

  • Stacks and ductwork

  • Soil, solid and semi-solid surfaces

  • Ponds, tanks and other liquid surfaces

  • Waste treatment emissions

  • Ambient air
