The generation of solids/sludge is a result of the naturally occurring processes of treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater. Odors caused by the formation of biogas (a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide) are a common occurrence at wastewater treatment facilities, bio solids processing facilities, and bio solids recycling locations. The use of the WOW Air family of products, including WOW Air™, WOW Air B™, WOW Air B28™ and WOW Air S™, will benefit the management and control of odors caused by the formation of the biogas and the management processes associated with the generation of solids/sludge.
The use of the appropriate WOW Air product will prevent the sulfur within the bacteria that is crucial to successful biological processes from forming and releasing the byproducts H2S and mercaptan gases, and replacing these gases with oxygen, thereby freeing up the bacteria to more efficiently break down waste as naturally intended. The inactivation of the sulfur will also cause a reduction in the generation of solids/sludge. This reduction has generated less solids from the waste treatment process and has increased the decant water return flows that are usually reintroduced to the headworks of a wastewater treatment process. Once the sulfur molecule is neutralized by the WOW Air products, it cannot reform and generate H2S or mercaptan gases during the completion of the treatment processes.
The products are designed to replace such chemical mainstays such as chlorine, hydrogen peroxide and calcium nitrate, ferric chloride and ferrous sulfate. Non-toxic products eliminate hydrogen sulfide and mercaptan gases, enhance the performance of waste digesting bacteria, prevent fat oil and grease build up and reduce sludge output. As an additional benefit, the products are proven corrosion inhibitors that will substantially extend the life of plant equipment.
These breakthrough solutions offer a cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to the challenges faced by plant operators in complying with increasingly restrictive regulatory requirements.
The line of Odor Eliminating solutions are designed to attack odors, including hydrogen sulfides and mercaptans at their source. Working at a molecular level in both aerobic and anaerobic environments, WOW-Air, WOW-Air B, WOW-Air B28, WOW-Air S and FUEL-WASH products cost effectively eliminate these odors while providing the additional benefits of:
- Corrosion Inhibition for Transport Systems & Equipment
- Reduced Sludge Output
- Safety for Employees
- Friendly to the Environment
- Safe to Handle and Transport
- Versatility allows for addition anywhere in your process
