Cost-effective odor and corrosion control


  • Controls atmospheric and dissolved sulfide - uses alkalinity supplementation and sulfide prevention to reduce odors and corrosion.
  • Fast-acting - provides sulfide control within seconds from the application point, whereas magnesium hydroxide can take up 30 minutes or longer to dissolve.
  • Minimizes FOG - reduces the accumulations of fats, oils, and grease in collection and treatment systems and the dissolved sulfide load on treatment plants, resulting in operational and cost savings.
  • Cost and operational advantages - system designed for optimal performance,  reducing annual energy usage by up to 24%. Alkagen also provides a beneficial alkalinity supplement for the biological treatment within the WWTP.

Description

Alkagen® Solution is a unique, custom engineered product that cost-effectively control odors and corrosion in wastewater systems. This rapidly dissolving/controllable pH shift technology provides sulfide control within seconds from the application point. Alkagen Solution also reduces the impact of FOG in collection systems and treatment systems while providing a beneficial alkaline supplement for the treatment plant.

The storage and distribution system is engineered for optimal performance with a robust submerible mixer that generates maximum agitation with minimal use of energy. This allows the mixer to be turned off periodically during the day, decreasing energy usage by up to 24%.
