BOD-Clear - Effluent treatments
Maintenance of Industrial Wastewater and Wastewater Treatment
For Total Solids Reduction and Reduction in BOD &COD Levels
BOD-Clear- a range of
bacterial waste degrading formulations for aerobic and anaerobic digestion
systems rely on microbes to perform the function of the breakdown of sewage
influent. These microbes live in the sludge of treatment plants and holding
tanks. They digest the solids and breakdown various compounds. Some wastewater
treatment systems are exceptionally efficient, others perform effectively soon
after start up, but later stop performing as well.
The key to
understanding how and why some wastewater treatment systems work well and
others don't, is the need to understand what these microbes need to function.
As microbes are living organisms, they require certain nutrients and
environments to survive, multiply and perform.
In any wastewater
treatment system there is a vast array of microbes present, i.e. aerobic,
anaerobic and facultative, each performing specific functions in their
respective parts of the system. Each species has a tolerance of ecological
minimums and maximums with regard to various conditions; pH, temperature,
dissolved oxygen levels and nutrient levels. All microbes require optimal
conditions in order to proliferate and infuse the system with sufficient
numbers of microbes to maximize the efficiency of the wastewater treatment
A common problem is
the ability to control high BOD/COD (Biological Oxygen Demand) levels in a
system. The first thought that there is not enough oxygen in the system to do
its job. This is usually based on suspicions that the mechanical processes that
generate air and oxygen - in relation to the volume capacity of the system, are
not functioning well enough or are inadequate. Traditional methods trend to
either increase the oxygen levels (dissolved oxygen) and or increase the
retention capacity. This is typically the engineering solution and does not
always solve the problem.
conditions, failures are often due to the incorrect levels of carbon, nitrogen
and phosphorous. Liebig's Law states that the productivity of any complex
system dependent on numerous essential inputs, is limited by the single
variable in least supply. In this case, the anaerobic microbes required to
preform the degrading function will die if not provided with the correct
balance of nutrients. As they oxidize they produce acid, which disrupts the
total balance of the microbial populations. Due to the competitive nature of
microbes, the non-beneficial bacteria will dominate producing an excessive
level of pathogens and toxins. This will lead to "stalling" or grid-lock and
high BOD's with foul odors.
microbial species found in a typical wastewater systems are often overwhelmed
by system upsets. Harsh chemicals, disinfectants and chlorination will have a
detrimental effect on microbial populations making systems less efficient.
Sludge build-ups occur, tank deposits, back-ups, floating grease pads, fouled
drain fields are just some of the problems encountered when microbial
populations are not maintained at optimum levels.
With a better
understanding of the inhibitory factors which cause the desired microbial
populations to diminish, we address the cause of the problem, and only then
repopulate the system with the specific microbes (augmentation) in the correct
numbers, inoculating it with high CFU counts (colony forming units).
BOD-Clear is for BOD,
COD and TS reduction
Wastewater Treatment contains microbial species that have an affinity for
biodegrading industrial wastewater, containing high levels of VOC's with
extremely high BOD's, specifically difficult substances such as phenols,
phosphorous, chlorinated hydrocarbons and proteinaceous compounds, at
It is a proprietary
blend of standardized organic, naturally occurring endosporic
Addresses high FOG
BOD-Clear - Waste
Water Treatment may be used in effluent lines, grease traps, drain lines,
holding ponds, lift stations, sewage injection pits and wet wells. It provides
rapid hydrolyzation of fats, oils and greases to fatty acids which is followed
by biological absorption and digestion, that prevents and even eliminates
grease deposits and odors.
Wastewater Treatment contains the standardized CFU count that can be used
to inoculate the media of biodegrading systems, resulting in improved and
accelerated digestion of organic solids and VOC's.
Used in conjunction
with your existing treatment systems, the regular use of the BOD-Clear
Wastewater Treatment will provide the user with a number of quantifiable
- formulations for aerobic and
- accelerated efficacy, reducing
- enhance the efficacy of the
de-watering process by reducing a greater percentage of solids
- improve quality of effluent
reducing the quantity of flocculent additives
- greatly reduce odor
- up to a 60% reduction in solids
over processes that rely on naturally cultivated microorganisms
- eliminating fats and hazardous
organic compounds from the bio-solid component
- increases digestion rates and
improves terminal flocculation
You will also see a
drastic reduction in BOD and COD levels when used as directed. BOD is reduced.
Those facilities that wish to recycle their bio-solids for commercial
fertilizer use will benefit greatly from BOD-Clear. Regular use of the
BOD-Clear - Wastewater Treatment results in a cleaner end
- Due to inherent variances of the effluent within
each wastewater treatment facility we prefer to prescribe products, rates and
methodology and recommend process engineering on an individual basis. We have a
series with several specialized formulations, each with specific functions.
These range from general all purpose formulations to specialized industrial
cold water formulas and anaerobic digesters formulations.
- BOD-Clear- Municipal
Wastewater concentrate Lagoons, contaminated bodies of water, municipal
plants to reduce B.O.D., C.O.D., T.S.S., and sludge. Improves the overall
capacity of the plant.
- BOD-Clear Industrial
Wastewater concentrate - for industrial wastewater applications. Reduces
B.O.D., C.O.D., T.S.S., sludge and the control of odor. Specifically treats the
effluent from food manufacturing plants and industrial manufacturing
- BOD-Clear - Foam reducers
- Reduces foaming caused by Nocardia and other filamentous microorganisms and
restores floc forming microbes to the system
- BOD-Clear - for Lift Stations, Grease
Traps and Septic sytems effective for reducing F.O.G.( fats,oils and
grease) as well as organic wastes that build-up within lift stations,sew lines
and grease traps . Reduces maintenance and increases efficiency of the system.
