Odor Monitoring System OdoWatch

What is an Odor Monitoring System

The approach offers a series of unique advantages over less comprehensive odor detection techniques. Not only do the e-noses provide quantifiable measurements of odor levels at one given location, but the system can use atmospheric dispersion modeling to show the full extent and intensity of an odor plume. An odor monitoring system like OdoWatch combines automatic central monitoring of odor emissions with a clear display showing odor concentration that incorporates current weather data and is updated continuously.
