Industrial Wastewater Treatment Reduce FOG (Fats, Oils, and Greases)

This case study is about the industrial wastewater treatment of FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) at a bakery. Food processing wastewater generally has FOG problems. Custom Biologicals has a great deal of experience with the industrial wastewater treatment of FOG. In fact, reducing FOG is generally a major concern at most industrial wastewater treatment plants. Custom uses F-TREAT, our biological wastewater effluent treatment product, to reduce FOG at wastewater facilities. F-TREAT is a bioremediation product designed specifically for wastewater treatment problems and it is effective in both industrial wastewater treatment and municipal wastewater treatment facilities.  Industrial Wastewater Treatment Reduce FOG (Fats, Oils, and Greases) Client Category: Industrial wastewater treatment. One of the largest bakeries in the Western U.S.A. Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA Physical Plant: A network of floor drains flows into a six stage 6,000 gallon interceptor. Flow: Flow is irregular but averages 35,000 GPD (Gallons per Day) Problem: High surcharges primarily for FOG averaging $60,000.00 per quarter. BOD was also high and the odor was very strong. Previous Treatment: The industrial wastewater was chlorinated heavily and discharged into the city sewage system. The installation of a large wastewater treatment facility was recommended. Custom Treatment: 4 gallons per day of F-TREAT were dispensed into the system. One half at the beginning of the main drain and...

Oil Water Separator Kit

Oil Water Separator Kit by Custom Biologicals Are you still pumping your oil water separator? Are you paying too much in pumping costs, environmental surcharges, and penalties? Well look no further, Custom Biologicals has designed a product specifically for you – the Oil Water Separator Kit. The oil water separator kit contains Custom HC Tabs  and bionutrients. Custom HC Tabs are a slow release tablet that contains a blend of specifically selected petrophilic, oil loving, bacteria. These bacteria have been selected because of their enhanced ability to metabolize (eat) the oils, petrochemicals, phenols, and hydrocarbons typically found in an oil water separator. Also included in the oil water separator kit are bionutrients. Custom HC Tabs slowly release the bacteria into your oil water separator eliminating the need for a costly pump and insuring a continuos flow of bacteria. Most oil water separators use two to four Custom HC Tabs per month. Regular use of Custom HC Tabs in your oil water separator will reduce pumping, reduce odors, and reduce surcharges. Use of HC Tabs generally will reduce your overall maintenance charges associated with your oil water separator. The Oil Water Separator Kit contains: 4 Custom HC Tabs 4 Packs of Bionutrients Custom HC Tabs are available in the Oil Water...

Bioremediation of an Oil Water Separator – Case Study

The Bioremediation of a Oil Water Separator – A Case Study This case study involves the use of Custom-HC, a bioremediation bacterial product, in a oil water separator. Oil water separators are deigned to keep oil, fuel oils, and hydrocarbons out of municipal sewage systems. Oil water separators are a form of industrial wastewater treatment and work because of the different densities of water and oil. The generally accepted method to maintain the oil water separator is simply to pump it out periodically. This is expensive and unnecessary. Bioremediation, the use of specific bacteria to metabolize oil, is as less expensive and efficient process of maintaining oil water separators. Custom HC, a bioremediation product of Custom Biologicals, is the bioremediation bacteria used in this case study. Custom HC contains petrophilic, oil loving, bacteria. These bacteria have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to metabolize, eat, typical compounds found in oil water separators such as; oil, diesel, gasoline, BTEX, TPH, and phenols. Client Category: Oil Water Separator Repair garage for fleet of 29 vehicles Location: East Boston, Massachusetts Capacity: 200 gallon separator discharging into city sewage system Industrial Wastewater Problem: Received letter from city to either clean the separator or pump it. The TPH was 33,940 mg/L. The city code calls for under...
