Wastewater Treatment Technology of Custom Biologicals

Wastewater Treatment Technology Custom Biologicals Custom Biologicals use bioaugmentation, sometimes called wastewater bioremediation, to treat a wide variety of wastewater problems. Bioaugmentation is a wastewater treatment technology that uses the addition of specifically selected microorganisms, or microbes, to treat wastewater. The use of bioaugmentation at wastewater plants is designed to treat a variety of wastewater problems such as: Wastewater Odor including hydrogen sulfide (H2S) odor FOG (fats, oils, and grease) problems High COD, BOD, TSS, or sludge Petrochemicals and hydrocarbons Fiber – pulp and paper wastewater Custom Biologicals main wastewater treatment product is F-TREAT. F-TREAT contains billions of specifically selected, wastewater treatment bacteria. These bacteria have been selected for their safety and their enhanced ability to metabolize the organic compounds typically found in wastewater streams. Additionally, Custom Biologicals has the ability to “customize” F-TREAT for a particular application. If you have a wastewater problem that others have tried and failed, Call Custom. We can customize a wastewater solution for you. F-TREAT is a wastewater treatment technology used in a wide variety of situations including: Industrial wastewater Food Processing wastewater Pulp and Paper Wastewater Municipal Sewage systems Lift Stations Petrochemical Refineries Custom Biologicals manufactures and distributes the following wastewater treatment products. F-TREAT – wastewater treatment bacteria. F-TREAT is a liquid concentrate...

F-TREAT Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria

F-TREAT Tabs Bioremediation Bacteria F-TREAT Tabs are the easiest solution to wastewater treatment, package plant wastewater treatment, and lift station problems. No Measuring! No Mixing! No Pumps! Simply drop F-TREAT Tabs into the wastewater to help reduce FOGs (Fats, Oils, and Grease) and other organic constituents of wastewater. Helps reduce BOD, COD, wastewater odors, and more. F-TREAT Tabs contain a highly concentrated blend of naturally occurring, bioremediation bacteria that actually digest the grease, fats, and oils that accumulate in wastewater systems, lift stations, and piping. The bacteria in F-TREAT tabs have been specifically selected because of their safety and their enhanced ability to metabolize organic wastes efficiently and odor free. F-TREAT Tabs slow release formula continuously releases bacteria for maximum effectiveness without the need for expensive pumps or measuring messy powdered bioremediation bacteria products. Features and Benefits of F-TREAT Tabs  All Natural Bacteria Formulation  Reduce FOGs and wastewater odors.  Reduces BOD, TSS, COD  Helps Control Odors such as hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor)  Continuous Release Formula  Reduces Pumping, Snaking, and Surcharges One F-TREAT Tab is the equivalent of 2.5 gallons of a liquid product – Why Ship Water!

Biological Wastewater Treatment

What is Biological Wastewater Treatment Biological Wastewater Treatment is the use of microorganisms, generally bacteria, to naturally degrade organic wastes found in wastewater.  The use of biological wastewater treatment results in BOD reduction, COD reduction, FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) reduction and wastewater odor control. Custom Biologicals manufactures F-TREAT which is our main biological wastewater treatment product. The bacteria in F-TREAT have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to degrade and remove a wide variety of organic wastes. Custom Biologicals has over twenty years experience in the use of bacteria to degrade the organic chemicals found in municipal and industrial wastewater. F-TREAT has proven to be effective in degrading the organic wastes found in a number of wastewaters including: Municipal Wastewater Lift stations Industrial Wastewater Pulp and Paper Wastewater Food Processing Wastewater Petrochemical Wastewater Animal Waste Wastewater Shrimp Aquaculture Wastewater Custom also has the ability to customize a biological wastewater treatment specifically for your specific wastewater problem. We have addressed wastewater problems such as phosphate reduction, nitrogen reduction, bulking, foaming, and filamentous bacteria problems. Contact Custom Biologicals for more information about how to customize a wastewater solution. Custom wastewater solutions are not limited to large scale wastewater treatment plants. We have products for on-site wastewater treatment such as...

Wastewater Bacteria and Their Importance in Treatment of Sewage Part 1

The Importance of Wastewater Treatment Bacteria at a Sewage Treatment Plant – Part 1 It is important to remember, and often overlooked, that the real work at the sewage treatment plant is done by the wastewater treatment bacteria and other microorganisms. Bacteria are single celled organisms that multiply by binary fission; that is one bacteria cell divides into two and two into four, etc. With an adequate food supply, bacteria are capable of reproducing every 20 minutes. To illustrate to yourself how fast this cell reproduction can be consider that once every 20 minutes means three cell divisions per hour. So get a calculator and hit 2 times 2, times 2, times 2, etc. After a mere seven hours, that initial wastewater bacteria has the potential to multiple into over one million bacterial cells. This amazing growth at a wastewater treatment plant is generally fueled by two things; adequate food supply and adequate oxygen supply. As a quick footnote, I’m not suggesting that all wastewater bacteria require oxygen but generally the aerobes grow at a much faster rate. Additionally, other factors such as temperature and pH will effect the growth rate of wastewater bacteria. For the purposes of this post, we’ll assume that the sewage plant is operating under...

Sewage Treatment Using a Lagoon – A Case Study

This is an interesting sewage treatment case study that took place in Mazatlan, Mexico. F-TREAT by Custom Biologicals is the product featured in this case study. F-TREAT is a biological wastewater treatment product designed to reduce BOD, COD, and FOG’s in sewage treatment plants, lagoons, and industrial wastewater treatment plants. In this case study, the wastewater treatment plant for  the city was overcapacity and there was no funding for a new sewage treatment plant. The decision was made to convert an existing, freshwater lagoon into a treatment plant. The conversion was simply plastic dividers to channel the wastewater in a circular motion around the lagoon. In this manner, we were able to increase the retention time inside the lagoon. As you’ll see below, this solution proved to be an inexpensive alternative to building a new sewage treatment system. Sewage Treatment Using a Lagoon – A Case Study Client Category: Municipal wastewater treatment plant. Location: Mazatlan, Mexico Physical Plant: The lagoon was about 300 Meter in length and 50 Meter in width. Depth was about 1.5 Meters. Baffles were installed in the lagoon to direct the flow of the wastewater Flow: 1.7 MGD (million gallons per day) overflow. Problem: Low reduction of BOD and COD. Overflow water with high BOD and COD overloaded existing municipal...
