Remote monitoring and control of odor-control systems

| By Mary Page Bailey

Ecolink (photo) is an online portal for remote monitoring and control of this company’s industrial odor-neutralization systems. With this advancement, users can now manage their equipment from anywhere with any device capable of hosting a web browser, such as a smart phone, tablet or computer. EcoLink provides the ability to remotely start, stop and change vaporization-system operating mode, identify low product levels and rack and trend flowrates, energy use, downtime and other key performance indicators (KPIs). Additionally, EcoLink can send alerts and notifications to an operations team, adjust product dosage to coincide with fluctuating odor-producing periods and encrypt data for transit and storage. — Ecosorb, Palatine, Ill.
