Wastewater Plant Start-Up and Seeding Solutions
Choosing an appropriate seeding method for starting up or restarting wastewater operations can have a significant impact on how quickly biological treatment is up and running properly. Activated sludge is traditionally used to seed and reseed treatment systems.
BioLynceus® products contain high concentrations of many types of bacteria for plant start up and restart of a variety of biological treatment systems. BioLynceus® seed products are alive, ready to use in convenient drum or tote packaging that can be on site, ready to go when you need it.
With BioLynceus®, there are neither complicated logistics, nor risks of introducing trash and unwanted species to your facility.
Startup Industrial Membrane Bioreactor Wastewater Plant
Industrial Membrane Bioreactor Plant 0.01 MGD When starting up a wastewater plant, the biological seed used can influence future treatment efficiency and operational challenges. Domestic activated sludge seeding has potential to introduced unwanted biological and...
Startup of a 8.9 MGD Anaerobic Digester at a Sugar Refinery
Halfway through a sugar beet processing campaign (September through May) a Midwest refinery noticed something was wrong with their wastewater processing system. The plant discharge was within limits for their NPDES permit parameters, but the chemical oxygen demand (COD) readings from their 8.9 million-gallon anaerobic digester were very different at the top, center, and bottom of the digester.
Startup of a Membrane Reactor
Mechanical WWTP .06 MGD National parks attract millions of visitors each year. Increasing seasonal traffic experienced by these establishments can overload the wastewater treatment infrastructure leading to treatment inefficiency and, eventually, structural...
Startup Mechanical Plant After Failed Activated Sludge Seeding
A common issue in activated sludge systems is sludge bulking (SB), or the uncontrolled growth of filamentous bacteria (FB). Impacts of a bulking sludge include (but are not limited to) poor settleability, impaired biological nutrient removal, and increased facility maintenance.
Startup of a Fixed-Film Activated Sludge Process
Establishing a functional biological community for wastewater treatment is essential when starting a new plant. Monitoring the growing biology during a startup provides the insight plant staff need to adjust operations to achieve a high treatment efficiency. Settleometer testing of aeration basin effluent in activated sludge processes can indicate whether the biomass will settle properly or cause bulking in the system.
