BIOXIDE® Plus 71 solution is a unique, proven product that achieves sewage odor control naturally, rather than chemically. This process eliminates the odor, prevents corrosion and overcomes safety concerns associated with atmospheric hydrogen sulfide.
In many wastewater streams a trace level of dissolved sulfides may be present at the nitrate addition point. To address the presence of existing sulfide, a proprietary component has been incorporated which reacts immediately with dissolved sulfide. Thus BIOXIDE Plus 71 solution is able to both immediately react with trace quantities of dissolved sulfides and prevent the downstream formation of new sulfides. Also, this proprietary blend reacts with fats, oils, and grease to help minimize the accumulation of grease and fat deposits at the application point.
BIOXIDE Plus 71 solution provides a source of bound oxygen (nitrate-oxygen) to naturally occurring facultative anaerobic denitrifying bacteria present in wastewater, which these bacteria metabolize preferentially over alternative sources of oxygen such as sulfate. Denitrification is a respiratory process where nitrate is reduced to nitrogen gas (N2) via a number of intermediates. The metabolic product of this reaction is inert, as opposed to odorous, toxic and corrosive hydrogen sulfide gas produced when sulfate reducing bacteria (SRBs) metabolize sulfate. BIOXIDE Plus 71 solution is effective at controlling odors within minutes of application through days, and also results in a slight reduction in Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD). In addition to hydrogen sulfide, BIOXIDE Plus 71 also combats most other odors commonly found in wastewater treatment systems.
Typical Applications of BIOXIDE Plus 71 solution include:
- Lift stations/wetwells
- Force Mains
- Gravity Mains
Additional products within the BIOXIDE solution family include:
BIOXIDE solution is the product of choice for the elimination of odor, corrosion and safety problems associated with hydrogen sulfide in wastewater collection systems and treatment plants. BIOXIDE solution is a unique, proven product because it achieves sewage odor control naturally, rather than chemically.
BIOXIDE AE and BIOXIDE AE 45 solutions are patented products developed to take advantage of the benefits of our BIOXIDE solution along with the the addition of extra alkalinity into the process to increase the benefits of using one or the other chemical solution alone.
BIOXIDE - AQ® solution is a patented product which combines our BIOXIDE solution with the addition of AQUIT® solution to forma powerful hydrogen sulfide removal and prevention system. BIOXIDE - AQ solution partially blocks the ability of anaerobes to utilize sulfate as an oxygen source and slows biological generation.
