Odyssey Manufacturing was incorporated in 1998 and began operations at its "state of the art" bleach manufacturing facility in Tampa, Florida in March of 2000. The manufacturing facility utilizes chlor-alkali technology for the production of bulk sodium hypochlorite. Odyssey's Ultra-Chlor sodium hypochlorite is engineered to be a superior quality product and is manufactured at a concentration of 12.5 Trade Percent Available Chlorine. Its extensive fleet of tractors and tanker trailers provide bulk truckload delivery to its customers. Odyssey also sells on-site sodium hypochlorite generation (OSHG) equipment for those of its customers that elect to go with this option. Odyssey is uniquely positioned to service this equipment, provide backup sodium hypochlorite during maintenance periods and even to provide the salt out of its large indoor warehouse in Tampa which stores over 50,000 tons of salt. Odyssey is also the Florida distributor for the UGSI PAX and Process Solutions Tank Shark Ground Storage Tank mixing systems.
Chlor-alkali technology has been used for years to produce chlorine and caustic out of salt and water utilizing an electrolysis process. Odyssey takes this technology one step further by combining it with a Powell continuous bleach plant. Odyssey’s process is superior in that it utilizes demineralized water and evaporated salt with membrane cell technology. The result is a much purer grade of caustic and chlorine relatively free from impurities. The resulting chlorine and caustic is taken directly off the cells and combined in a Powell continuous bleach plant to produce a superior quality product. Of the handful of companies who employ this technology around the country, Odyssey’s cell room has had the longest continuous operation in North America.
As the leading supplier of sodium hypochlorite to the industrial market in the State of Florida, Odyssey Manufacturing Co. recently tripled its manufacturing capacity by signing a long-term deal with Olin Chemical to be their exclusive HyPure® sodium hypochlorite distributor for the State of Florida. HyPure® sodium hypochlorite has similar purity characteristics to Odyssey's Ultrachlor in that it is made from a chlor-alkali plant connected to a continuous sodium hypochlorite plant. Olin Chemical is the world's largest sodium hypochlorite supplier and this agreement with Odyssey provides Olin direct access to the largest sodium hypochlorite market in North America. This also provides significantly increased reliability to Odyssey's customer base.
Odyssey is willing to work hard to earn your trust. It offers unprecedented quality and service at very competitive prices. Its state of the art plant is operational 24 hours a day, seven days per week to meet demand and help facilitate customer service and emergency response. Odyssey's commitment to excellence is best demonstrated by its focus toward the manufacturing of only a single product utilizing a revolutionary manufacturing process. Ultrachlor is also available in drums and totes through Odyssey's primary distributor including Hawkins, Inc. (www.HawkinsInc.com
) who has over eight locations in Florida. As a provider of chemical storage and feed systems, on-site generation equipment and Ground Storage Tank mixing systems, Odyssey is now redefining its role to provide total disinfection solutions to its customers.
