Photographic Odor Problems
Various odoriferous gases like acetic acid, formaldehyde, ammonia, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide etc. could be generated during normal photo-processing. These odors can quickly saturate the air since most ventilation systems only recirculate room air and remove large particulate matter such as dirt, dust, and lint. Noxious odors are left free to recirculate in the air you breathe. Over time, they could increase in concentration and result in serious indoor air pollution problems e.g. sick building syndrome. This could lead to complaints from customers as well as employees and OSHA fines.
According to the EPA, "indoor pollution can be as much as 100 times greater than outdoors." Since most people spend close to 90% of their time indoors, indoor air pollution poses a serious health risk. Medical problems that have been associated with poor indoor air quality include dizziness, headaches, eye nose or throat irritation, dry or itchy skin, nausea, shortness of breath, difficulty in concentrating, fatigue, sensitivity to odors, allergies, depression, and chronic illnesses.
The Smelleze® Reusable Photo Smell Deodorizer Pouch was specially developed to adsorb, neutralize, and encapsulate unpleasant photographic odors on contact. It will eliminate odoriferous gases like acetic acid, formaldehyde, ammonia, sulfur dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide which could be emitted from photographic processors. Smelleze® will truly cleanse the air of tough photo odors and complement existing ventilation systems. This will be appreciated by customers, employees, and improve your image.
It's No Cover-Up
The Smelleze® Reusable Photo Smell Deodorizer Pouch is a natural deodorizer that can be used to eliminate noxious and unpleasant photographic odors instead of merely masking them with fragrances. Smelleze® is negatively charged whereas odoriferous gases ride on positively charged particles. As a result, Smelleze® draws in photo-processing odors like a strong magnet. Thereafter, it traps, neutralizes, and encapsulates the odors without smelly cover-ups. The molecular structure of Smelleze® is made up of a lattice structure arranged to form a honeycomb framework of billions of interconnecting channels. This gives Smelleze® an enormous surface area that is larger than several football fields. The latter enables Smelleze® to adsorb phenomenal amounts of photographic odors and work for months.
The Smelleze® Reusable Photo Smell Deodorizer Pouch is non-toxic, safe, non-hazardous, natural, non-scented, and non-caustic. It is an ideal environmentally friendly solution for eliminating photographic odors without adding pollutants to the air employees breathe and improving indoor air quality. Smelleze® does not contain chemical additives and is especially beneficial for those suffering from chemical sensitivity.
Smelleze® can be effectively used by all types of photo-processing facilities to eliminate odors. Typical applications include:
- Graphic Arts Prepress Areas
- Photo-processing Areas
- Mini Labs
- X-Ray Labs
- Reprographic Companies
- Dark Rooms
- Motion Picture Labs
- Chemical Mixing & Storage Areas
- Any Other Area With Photographic Odors
For a breath of fresh air, simply remove the plastic cover, place Smelleze® pouches adjacent to processors, replenishment tanks, photochemical mixing areas, or in any other area to treated, and smell the difference. Use one or more pouches for every 300 square feet. This product will function most efficiently in an enclosed area with good air circulation. To obtain the best results, eliminate the odor sources (e.g. spills and open containers) and clean the affected area prior to treating with Smelleze®. For extra effectiveness, this product may be used in conjunction with Smelleze® General Purpose Deodorizer Granules and Powder.
Improve your Image with Clean, Healthy & Odorless Air
It is common for noxious gases like acetic acid, formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide to be emitted during photo processing operations. This results in unpleasant odors which could be offensive to both customers and employees. Furthermore, these odoriferous gases could contribute to poor indoor air quality and lead to health and safety problems.
The Smelleze® Reusable Photo Smell Deodorizer Pouch was specially designed to eliminate photo processing odors from graphic arts prepress, photofinishing labs, mini labs, x-ray labs, reprographic, motion picture and photochemical mixing areas. It will compliment ventilation systems by adsorbing odors it leaves untouched and result in a cleaner, safer, work environment along with happier and healthier employees.
For a breath of fresh air, simply place Smelleze® pouches in return air ducts or near processors, replenishment tanks and photochemical mixing areas. To rejuvenate periodically, simply place in direct sunlight for a day and reuse. Replace when rejuvenation does not help. Smelleze® can work for years so it is very cost effective.
Smelleze® is non-toxic, safe, reusable, recyclable, natural, odorless, non-flammable and non-caustic. Smelleze® is an ideal environmentally friendly solution for eliminating a wide variety of noxious photo processing odors without adding pollutants to the air you breathe. It does not contain VOCs, harmful or ozone depleting chemicals and is especially beneficial for those suffering from allergies and chemical sensitivity. No fossil fuels are used in the production of Smelleze® odor control media.
