The Opportunity
Simon Roofing and Sheet Metal Corporation has developed and patented an innovative system for the removal of noxious fumes from the surrounding air during the application of a heated liquid roofing product onto a roof. The invention provides an innovative mobile collection method and device at a minimum cost.
The system

  • operates close to buildings on job sites

  • allows the collection system to move along with heated roofing material

  • materially reduces noxious fumes

  • removes fumes from both the tanker vessel and the tender vessel simultaneously

  • is compact and mobile, allowing easy movement between job sites.

Technology
The primary innovation is in the provision of a method to conveniently move the collection system along with the vessel of heated roofing material. This is accomplished by arranging for a fume recovery system to simultaneously capture fumes from both the tanker that feeds the roofing material to a roof vessel, and from the roof vessel itself, as shown at the right.
 

The Simon fume recovery system itself consists of a series of filters and other recovery apparatus, along with a cooling chamber for most effective removal of particulates and fumes, as shown below.
Simon is currently manufacturing the systems for its customers in-house. A product brochure is attached to the downloadable PDF file.

 

Projections indicate that the systems could be sold more widely and profitably if produced and promoted by an appropriate partner.
