Odors generated from the water treatment facility are intensively suctioned to the scrubber unit for chemical cleaning, which is achieving a high deodorizing effect.
The water treatment facility is in operation 24 hours a day. An automatic stop or emergency shutoff valve system operates, thus preventing the leakage of water out of the facility in emergency cases, such as a case of the malfunctioning of the facility.
