Bacteria product

Bio-Systems Biobug AS is a granular bacteria product specifically manufactured for application in municipal treatment plants. Packaged in water soluble pouches for dosing, the concentrated formula rapidly establishes a biomass able to degrade organic material comprised of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and select hydrocarbons. By improving the degradation of organic material, sludge levels are reduced as they are converted into dead "bugs" that weigh much less and occupy less space. Regular use of the product can result in 25 to 35% reduction in dry solids produced.

Caustic soda dosing

The new "CTS" Chemical Treatment System from Fluid Metering is suited for delivering caustic soda and other pH adjusting chemicals for treatment of water and wastewater. The metering pump uses a unique Valveless Piston Technology. A single rotating and reciprocating ceramic piston accomplishes both the pumping and valving functions, thereby eliminating the need for check valves and the associated maintenance. Sapphire-hard internal ceramics insure that there is no degradation in accuracy over time, and therefore, no need to recalibrate.
