Testimonial: Fume Extractor for Essential Oil Odors

Company & Application

Simplers Botanical is a “small herbalist-operated company in Northern California with a passion for providing the highest therapeutic grade organic essential oils and extracts available.”
When Simplers approached us for a fume control solution for their production process, we realized that their application was very unique. Although we have worked with organic and plant-based fumes before, this was the first time we had a company bottling various essential oils with a wide range of volatility. Sales Manager, Omar Ilsever, researched various filter medias and felt that activated carbon would work best for the herbs and oils being utilized. “We felt that it was best to let the customer evaluate the unit prior to purchase since we had limited experience in their market. This allowed us to ensure that our Model 400 was the best fit for their particular need”, states Ilsever. Upon receiving the unit, Simplers Botanical ran it through several tests and found that it was a good fit for their manufacturing floor. Ilsever states that “it is always rewarding to find new applications for our equipment, especially when we are able to help customers with a specific need in regard to health and safety.”

The Solution

Simplers Botantical utilizes a Sentry Air Systems Model 400 Portable Fume Extractor with 22 lbs. of Activated Carbon filtration to control volatile oil odors during preparation:
“Our Sentry Air 400 is nothing short of a breath-saver, skin-saver, life-saver. We are a high volume essential oil company that, over the years, found employees having to deal with levels of atmospheric volatile oil compounds that was becoming intolerable. The Sentry Air 400 has virtually removed the volatiles from our working environment. I cannot speak strongly enough of what this has done for the safety of our people. Totally recommended.”
