Byo-Gon PX 109
Buffering & pH Response
Previously using caustic soda, sodium bicarbonate and hydrated lime for two separate water treatment systems
Converted to Lime Slurry and no longer have to use three products.
After the lime slurry conversion the plant has seen a usage reduction, better efficiency, eliminated plugging in their lines, and no dusting
Previous treatment was to open 600 lbs. of Hydrate per day in 50 lb. bags
An employee had been injured from lifting bags of hydrate for treatment.
Converted to lime slurry and saw a 43% reduction in costs and are using less Ferric Chloride.
Plant operates an anaerobic digester for treatment of high BOD waste streams
Magnesium hydroxide is utilized for pH control and added alkalinity to the digester
ByoGon is used as an alkaloid compound to increase metabolism of bacteria for better removal of BOD and increased methane production.
New Hydrate system that was online for less than a year was experiencing major plugging
After increased shut downs, labor costs, and inefficiencies, lime slurry was used for pH adjustment.
A full scale bulk lime slurry system was put in place at a fraction of the cost and lowered maintenance issues.
Caustic soda was being utilized for pH control and water treatment.
Lime slurry was brought in using one of WKM’s trial units to run side by side comparison.
After testing, lime slurry proved to increase water quality while maintaining a lower overall cost.
