What’s That Smell?

Don’t worry, it’s not you. If you’re in the wastewater industry, there’s a good chance it’s hydrogen sulfide.

Join us at Odors and Air Pollutants, booth 110, March 22-23 in Milwaukee, WI and make “scents” of your odors.

Why Choose Jerome®?

Did you know that the human nose can smell as little as .01 ppm (10 ppb) of hydrogen sulfide in the air? That’s pretty impressive, however, when you take into account that the most offensive and most noticeable levels of H2S are between 3 and 5 ppm (3000-5000 ppb), it quickly becomes obvious why we do not rely on human noses – or instruments with high lower detection limits – to tell us when we have an odor problem. Most permits require a fenceline upper limit of 30 ppb. By the time your neighbors are telling you about an odor issue, it’s too late. Avoid the hassle of “after the fact” testing and cut off nuisance odors before they begin with Jerome® low level hydrogen sulfide monitoring instruments.

Most permits in the US require a fence-line upper limit of 30 ppb (parts per billion) H2S. Although that level is below what are considered the most noticeable levels of H2S (3 to 5 ppm or 3000-5000 ppb), many people are sensitive enough that they can smell as little as 10 ppb (.01 ppm). Instruments with high lower detection limits won’t be able to help you there.
