No matter what industry you’re in, chances are you need odour control. VapourGard can help you eliminate odour complaints in a safe, cost-effective, and versatile way.

Cleanawater is excited to bring the latest in odour abatement technology out of Europe and the US with our VapourGard range. VapourGard utilises the latest in odour neutralising technology without the use of water like traditional misting systems, making them ideal for large open areas and production facilities wishing to avoid bulky and expensive extraction and treatment systems.

VapourGard is a revolution in airborne odour control

  • More Effective Than Misting Systems
  • Economical
  • Low Maintenance
  • Odour Removal - 90 - 100%

vapourgardunit1000x667Cleanawater’s unique VapourGard system is more effective than fragrance and neutralising oils. That’s because its active deodorisation technology destroys odour particles - rather than just masking them. The vapours stay airborne for longer than traditional sprays - allowing more effective odour treatment.

It’s what makes VapourGard an industry-leading system. Meaning total control of airborne odours - indoors and outdoors.

Advantages of Vapour for Odour Treatment

  • Deodoriser is delivered in lightweight particles, similar to the weight of the odours
  • No water is needed
  • Maintenance is minimal
  • The deodoriser is unobtrusive
  • The vaporisation system is relatively quiet, dry, and invisible
  • Cost-effective to install and run
  • Completely safe and environmentally friendly
  • Can be used to treat hydrogen sulphide (H2S)

Odours are compounds that have volatilised – transitioned to gaseous or vapour state. That is why we can smell them. We don’t actually smell liquids or solids. We smell the portions of them that make the transition into the vapour state – making them light enough to travel in the air and into our nostrils.

The VapourGard System releases deodoriser converted to vapour form. The deodoriser vapour moves at the same speeds and in the same direction as odorous vapours. This allows the deodoriser to stay in the air for a much longer time, creating more opportunities for contact and deodorisation. The system uses a pipe to transport an air-stream filled with vaporised deodoriser around the perimeter of any area where deodorisation is desired. The type of pipe is determined by terrain and weather conditions.

The vapour is created by a unique system that moves air across a tank of deodoriser. The deodoriser is designed specifically to vaporise when subjected to air movement or minor turbulence. Heat is not used. The chemical is not “evaporated” in the normal sense of the word. The vaporiser unit contains only a motor and blower, a tank, and a vacuum system for creating the vapour and delivering it into the air-stream. While some heat is created by molecular vibration at the surface of the liquid, the amount is minimal. This allows vaporisation of the deodoriser without fractionation. The composition and functionality of the deodoriser are not compromised.

The ingredients are carefully designed to vaporise together, retaining their integrity. This is why heat is not used. Heating any blend of volatile ingredients results in a loss of integrity because each component will have a different evaporation rate and temperature threshold. Using heat to create vapour simply separates the deodoriser back into its component parts.   

The deodoriser was created specifically for the process of vaporisation by turbulence. It contains no propellants or alcohols, and its component parts are all approved for cosmetic use or greater by the FDA. People use most of the components of VapourGard deodoriser every day in their homes.

Benefits to Clients

Cleanawater’s vapour systems are the lowest maintenance odour control products on the market. There are no nozzles to become blocked, and no portable water supply is needed. The active ingredients get to the very cause of odours, eliminating the particles. Our vapour systems are suited to large indoor and outdoor applications, especially effective on-site boundaries, aiding compliance with WHS and environmental regulations and eradicating odour complaints. The versatile design also helps you manage any site demands.

Uses and applications

  • Treat a wide range of odours
  • Elimination of indoor and outdoor odours
  • Large factories
  • Processing facilities
  • On-site perimeters
  • Waste Water processing and treatment facilities (H2S)
  • Solid Waste Facilities
  • Recycling facilities
  • Waste processing and transfer stations
