Strata Waste Digester
"Waste Water Treatment"
Insoluble lipids such as greases, fats and oil constitute 25 to 52% of the organic matter in domestic sewage. Insoluble, long chain fatty acids accumulate within activated sludge treatment plants due to the inability of resident micro-organisms to degrade various synthetic surfactants and fats within the process time. Solid grease is skimmed from clarifiers and pumped directly to anaerobic liquefaction and degradation. Aerobic digestion produces floating mats of this compacted grease, layers two to eight feet thick, thus resulting in digester malfunction. Waste Digester contains lipase enzymes and natural occurring bacteria which secrete significant amounts of lipase enzymes, which split fats, grease and oils for rapid digestion. Daily use of Waste Digester, metered into activated sludge systems, reduces the emulsified and concerted grease solids, thereby eliminating digester "cakes" or matting. In lift stations and gathering lines, it reduces grease and scum build-up, as well as odors.
Synthetic detergents such as Sodium, Alkyl Benzene Sulfonate (ABS) and Sodium N-Dodecyl Benzene Sulfonate (LAS), because of their particular physiochemical properties, have altered the efficiency of sewage treatment systems by decreasing measurably, the rate of oxygen transfer in these systems. This interface of oxygen transfer can reduce the capacity of an activated sludge plant by as much as 30 to 40% and further increase the residence time required to process the sewage for optimum flocculation and overall BOD reduction. In order to minimize the effects of ABS, LAS and other closely related syndets and detergent compounds, Waste Digester contains the micro-organisms biologically capable of degrading higher concentrations of these detergents at faster rates, thus reducing process residence time and effluent BOD levels. In a case history, an Eastern Oklahoma municipal-activated sludge plant experienced difficulty with extreme variations in removal efficiency regarding suspended solids (53 to 86%, average 70%) and BOD 69 to 89%. Waste Digester application resulted in suspended solids elimination increasing to 92% average and BOD to 91% average reduction. These results were obtained during the five-month "difficult" period.
Cellulose matter, such as paper, cotton rags and cigarettes, are among the most difficult components within municipal and industrial waste treatments to liquify and decompose. Cellulosic matter is degraded by specialized enzymes of aerobic organisms which convert the tough fibrous cellulosic structure into a soluble fluid state. Municipal waste treatment plants receiving peak overloads of paper, cotton, fruit and vegetable pulp, ceral fibers and various other cellulosic sources, may benefit from the rapid hydrolyzing capability of Waste Digester. Waste Digester contains cellulase enzymes and specially selected micro-organisms which secrete further cellulase enzymes. Normal microbial flora produce limited cellulase enzymes. Thus, by adding Waste Digester, increased cellulase activity will decompose and hydrolyze greater quantities of cellulosic matter.
Suggested Feed Areas - To Treat Lift Stations & Collection Lines
Apply Waste Digester at the lift station farthest from the plant. Waste Digester can be applied to the system manually or preferably by using a feeder. If the feeder is used, an electrically or battery operated metering pump can be set to feed the product into the system. The product will then digest waste and grease organics both in the station as well as down line. Approved by the city of San Diego, CA for use in their sewer system.
To Treat Areas Inside the Municipal Plant
Apply Waste Digester to influent lines to aerobic secondary or the beginning of the biological wastewater treatment process. As in the lift stations, a voluntary feeder can be used to automatically dispense the required amount of product over a 24-hour period, thus allowing operators to balance the overall plant system more easily. Waste Digester is sold in 12 oz jars, gallon bottles, 25 pound pails, 5 gallon buckets and 55 gallon drums!
