Exclusive Vaportek Systems
Vaportek odor control systems employ a proprietary compound of select natural oils. With the membrane systems, oil compounds are hermetically sealed into specially formed membranes that permit the oil to breathe through the surface of the envelope as a vapor. The disk systems use a special fiber element that is impregnated with the same natural oil blends as the membranes. Both systems rely on convection to carry the vapor quickly wherever air circulates - whether diffused passively or through the use of electrical or battery-powered machines. For more information on our systems, please see our entire product line or you can also contact us with any questions.
Vaportek’s compound is an odor neutralizer. It modifies the olfactory nature of unwanted odors to a point of odor disappearance. When two substances of given concentrations are mixed, the resulting odor may be far less intense than that of separate components and not be perceptible. This is the principle behind odor modification or neutralization, and the basis for Vaportek’s odor-neutralizing products.
When molecules of the several constituents of the Vaportek compound volatize into air, they react with the odor-producing elements of the odorous molecule. The portion of the molecule that contributes the odor may be aldehyde, amine, diamine, sulfide, lactone, carboxylic acid, ester, carbylamine, ketone or other carbons. These are highly reactive and are neutralized, or made inactive, by the interaction with the ingredients of the Vaportek compound. The Vaportek compound is effective because of its intrinsic wide spectrum of neutralizing activity, combined with its high mobility in air and ability to penetrate porous substances such as wallboard, wood, carpeting, cement, insulation and others to permanently neutralize imbedded odors.
Proven Product Uses
Vaportek odor controllers have proven effective in millions of uses, including oil reclamation areas, rubber, asbestos, shoe and fiberglass manufacturing plants, tanning plants, paint solvent areas, hospitals, hotels, office buildings, and fire and restoration work.
Vaportek products address important safety issues in today’s market:
- Contain no added alcohol or petroleum distillates.
- Products are CFC-free and do not deplete the ozone layer.
- Membranes are spill-proof and designed for minimal waste generation.
- The Vaportek compound is non-toxic by design and contains natural ingredients.
- Products do not generate ozone and are not subject to ozone restrictions.
- Contain no inert ingredients, and are VOC compliant.
Vaportek products have proven exceptionally useful in fire/flood restoration projects. The Vaportek compound effectively neutralizes impregnated smoke odor and, unlike ozone generators, does not harm fibrous materials. Additionally, buildings with smoke contamination may be occupied while the Vaportek system is in use.
