Bioremediation using F-TREAT in Municipal Sewer Lines

Bioremediation using F-TREAT in Municipal Sewer Lines Use of F-TREAT The problem of grease and fat buildup (FOG’s) in municipal sewer lines creates a major monetary investment for its removal each year. Cleaning, therefore is carried out only in those sewer lines where blockage of flow is a major concern. Any new and economical method of alleviating the problem is of great value. F-TREAT, a bioremediation product, has demonstrated a potential to achieve the required results and can be used in the following situations. As a Complete Bioremediation Solution – Problematic sewer lines undergo an inoculation treatment to remove fat deposits such as those exemplified by the Parliament and Piccadilly Street Branch sewers.  As a pretreatment – Physical and mechanical fat removal methods can be made substantially easier by pretreatment of the sewer lines with F-TREAT. Trials have shown that F-TREAT can significantly alter the characteristics of FOG’s making it less sticky and more friable and aid in its removal by suction. As a Maintenance/Preventative Treatment – Physically, mechanically, or biologically cleaned sewers are susceptible to recurrent problems as soon as the fats start to buildup again. Maintenance dosing of a cleaned sewer will prevent FOG buildup by bringing about a continued solubilization of the fat before it can cause...

The Bioremediation Waste Water Case Study in London

The Bioremediation of Waste Water – A Case Study in London This wastewater case study is a little more involved than most of the information we have. It involves the initial assessment of the use of F-TREAT in bioremediation of waste water. Specifically, the removal of Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOGs) and other organic wastes from the sewer lines in London, England and prepared for the Thames Water Utilities, LTD.   The Piccadilly Line BioTreatment The bioremediation treatment on the Piccadilly Branch Sewer was the second such treatment by the Thames Water Utility using F-TREAT and was carried out as a result of successful tests achieved from a similar biotreatment on the sewer in the Parliament Street area. The bioremediation strategy was planned after careful evaluation of all of the site conditions Dose rates were calculated on the length of the sewer to be treated and the extent of accumulation of fats and other solids. The length of the sewer  to be bioremediated covered approximately one kilometer and is estimated to have contained about 250 tons of FOGs and other organic solids. Sewage flow through this section of sewer was stopped for 6 of the 7.5 weeks of the F-TREAT treatment, a small input from local residences was inevitable....

Save Money Using Fizzytabs in Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Save Money Using Fizzytabs in Industrial Wastewater Treatment Industrial wastewater comes in a lot of shapes, sizes, concentrations, and volumes. In this post we’ll talk about the use of fizzytabs, by Custom Biologicals, in industrial wastewater treatment. What are Fizzytabs? First, lets talk about fizzytabs. Fizzytabs are a unique, fast dissolving, effervescent tablet containing billions of beneficial bacteria. These bacteria have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to degrade organic compounds such as fats, oils and grease (Reduce FOG), hydrocarbons and proteins. The greatest advantage of fizzytabs is their size. One small tablet, about the size of a US quarter, is equivalent to one quart of a liquid microbial product. So one tube of twenty fizzytabs is EQUIVALENT TO 5 GALLONS OF LIQUID BACTERIA. So let’s do the math. One tube of fizzytabs weights about one pound, you supply your own water and five gallon pail. Cost to ship in the US and Canada – about $1.00. A five gallon pail of competitive products weights about 40 pounds.  You pay to ship water – but you do get a free 5 gallon pail. Cost to ship by UPS ground in the US – about $60.00. Why pay to ship water! Ok, now lets move to industrial wastewater...

Using Shock Treatment Bacteria to Reduce Lift Station Problems

Using Shock Treatment Bacteria to Reduce Lift Station Problems Shock treatment bacteria, by Custom Biologicals are a unique and innovative way to handle lift station problems. As any lift station maintenance professional knows, lift stations have two major problems; FOG’s and odor. Shock treatment bacteria have been designed to handle these two important lift station problems. Shock treatment bacteria come as a tube of twenty fizzytabs. They are small, effervescent tablets about the size of a US quarter. When placed in a five gallon pail, the fizzytabs dissolve in about 5 minutes. That’s all the preparation you need! Once the tabs have dissolved, apply the solution to the lift station. If your lift station has FOG’s on the sides (and almost all lift stations have this problem), pour the now liquid shock treatment bacteria around the sides of the lift station. Make sure to get the product on as much of the grease spots as possible. The shock treatment bacteria will now go to work eating the fats, oils and grease (FOG’s) on the side of the lift station. And, they’ll jump start biological activity with the lift station too! Further reducing the FOG’s and odors in the lift station. To continue maintaining the lift station, use the lift...

Fizzytabs Innovative Microbial Products

Fizzytabs – Innovative Microbial Products Fizzytabs, by Custom Biologicals, are innovative, microbial products. Custom manufactures a wide variety of fizzytabs for use in the home, in restaurants and food service industry, in wastewater treatment, and in agriculture. Patent Pending fizzytabs are effervescent tablets that dissolve quickly in water. Upon dissolving, fizzytabs release billions of specifically selected bacteria or fungi. These microorganisms have been selected because of their enhanced ability to degrade oil, improve plant roots, or improve septic tank performance depending on which microbial product they are in. Microbial Products that are Fizzytabs: Septic Fizzytabs – Monthly septic tank treatment – Here’s a link to a Septic Fizzytab sample.  Holding Tank Fizzytabs – for RV holding tanks Shock Treatment Fizzytabs – for Lift Stations Car Wash Odor Control Kit – contains shock treatment fizzytabs Pond Fizzytabs – for pond odor control Mop’n Treat – for restaurant drain line odor and grease control BiotaMax – soil probiotic. Grow bigger, healthier plants. Drain Line Fizzytabs – for drain line odor control Fizzytabs have a number of advantages over competitive microbial products. First, shipping costs are greatly reduced. Products that are one gallon or one quart are reduced to a small tablet – WHY SHIP WATER. Secondly, ease of use. For the...
