Depending on the size of the system, EM-1® Waste Treatment (smaller) or Wt1000™ (large scale) can be used. Application site and dosage are dependent on the type and age of the system and the goals of the operation. Since application rates can vary from 1:1,000 to 1:40,000, please contact us and talk to a wastewater expert.
The average daily flow is determined. After a site assessment and preliminary data is collected for at least one year, the proper amount of product is calculated.
Wt1000™ is injected at a rate of 1:10,000 (average rate) on a daily basis in the collection system as far away from the plant as possible to increase residence time in the line.
A siphon/venture unit can be installed to work on a pressurized trigger or an injection pump can be installed on site. In systems that have high flow rates or excessive sludge levels, the addition of TeraKashi® can accelerate sludge digestion.
ODOR CONTROL/FOGGING SYSTEMS
For odor control, a fogging system will be installed in lift stations, at the headworks, or other areas of concern. EM-1® Waste Treatment has a unique ability to stabilize complex proteins through a shift from anaerobic putrefaction cycles to a fermentative cycle.
Hair and plastics can play havoc with the balancing of an anaerobic digester by creating over-thickening of the scum layer. Hair is primarily composed of complex proteins, which have been historically difficult to stabilize to a point at which the biological breakdown will occur in a timely manner. EM-1®Waste Treatment will assist by accelerating protein stabilization.
