WHAT IS SMOKE TESTING?

The use of ‘odour-proof’ buildings and containers is a key element of odour management, but careful testing is needed to ensure that weak points in the construction are not allowing odours to escape. Smoke testing involves filling a building with oil vapour in order to identify the leakage points, as a pre-cursor to carrying out remedial action.

HOW IS SMOKE TESTING CARRIED OUT?

The process of filling the building with visible oil vapour takes around twenty minutes using smoke generators. The leakages are then noted and captured using photographs and video. The process is undertaken twice, once with the air-extraction system operating, and once without.

The resulting data can then be used by our clients to pinpoint the weaknesses in the building, and seal them to prevent future odour leakage.

COMMON SMOKE LEAKAGE POINTS

  • Roof repairs.
  • Gaps in wall cladding.
  • The roof jointing strip.
  • Gable-end capping.
  • Window frames.

A BUILDING SMOKE TEST CAN BENEFIT BUSINESSES

At Silsoe Odours Ltd we have learnt that the most damage can be done when businesses are unaware of odour leakage. Whilst odour-proof buildings appear to be an ideal solution, any construction making this claim needs to be subject to regular testing in order to maintain its initial guarantee.
