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....

Grease Trap FAQ’s

Grease Trap, What is it? Grease traps and grease interceptors are containers or receptacles located between the restaurant or food service drain lines and the municipal sewer lines. The Grease trap allows for the separation and collection of fats, oils and grease (FOG) and other organic materials from the wastewater, preventing the FOG’s from entering the municipal sewer system. The grease trap is either a)located inside of the restaurant or b)located on  the outside of the restaurant. Typically larger restaurants and school kitchens will have their grease trap located outside of the facility, usually in the ground. Outside grease traps generally range in size from 1000 to 5000 gallons.  Facilities with smaller grease traps can usually house theirs indoors. Why does a restaurant have a grease trap? FOG causes all kinds of problems in municipal wastewater collection facility. These wastewater problems are typically in the lift stations and collection pipes. Most municipalities require commercial kitchens and restaurants to have a grease trap installed. Most municipalities will have a maximum amount of FOG that is acceptable in the waste water leaving an food establishment. If these minimums are exceeded, fines and surcharges can be imposed. How do grease traps work? Grease traps slow down the flow of water coming from...
