Headworks are the initial receiving facilities for introducing raw influents into a sewage treatment facility, industrial treatment facility, lagoons or any other treatment facility specifically used to treat waste flows. The inflow to these facilities generally contains significant levels of aqueous H2S. By treating the aqueous H2S as early as possible in the treatment process, the natural biological treatment processes will be more efficient. Waste treatment systems will benefit from introducing the action of the WOW Air products including WOW Air B™, WOW Air B28™ and WOW Air S™ to the treatment processes as soon as possible. This early introduction will activate the capability of these products to prevent the sulfur within the bacteria 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. 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. The 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
