For Industrial Effluent Treatment
- Controls odor and corrosion
- Rapid reaction rate
- Adds dissolved oxygen and has residual
- Oxidizes dissolved sulfides to
elemental sulfur or sulfate
- Creates aerobic conditions and removes
- Add at pump stations or to main line,
wet wells, lagoons, etc.
OXY BIO is completely soluble, dust free, and releases hydrogen peroxide
as it dissolves giving it a time release neutralization of sulfides and
slow addition of oxygen to the system.
The presence of sulfides, liberating gaseous hydrogen sulfide, is
responsible for many odor and corrosion problems. These are caused by
industrial wastes containing sulfides, those generated by bacterial
action, detergents containing sulfates and human wastes. Sulfides are
toxic to most aerobic organisms, aquatic life and to humans. Sulfide gases
are extremely corrosive in that they generate sulfuric acid from the
bacterial oxidation of H2S. It attacks concrete pipes and other equipment.
The "rotten eggs" odor of hydrogen sulfide is objectionable even in
concentrations of 0.1 ppm in air. With a threshold odor of 0.001 mg/l,
hydrogen sulfide ranks as one of the most odorous gases.
The presence of oxygen is essential for satisfactory biological
purification. When the amount of available oxygen is insufficient to
insure purification, it is usually due to: a) increase in temperature of
the oxidation pond reducing the amount of dissolved oxygen; or b) oxygen
being consumed at a rapid rate due to proliferation of algae; c)
purification plant capacity being over loaded; or d) sudden rise in
The addition of a peroxygen compound such as OXY BIO makes it possible to
supply the additional oxygen required, as well as to add alkalinity to the
system. It can also be used for deodorizing sludge.
OXY BIO contains 13% available oxygen, equivalent to a 27% solution of
hydrogen peroxide. This product presents no effluent problems as it
decomposes into water, oxygen and soda ash.
Normally one (1) part peroxide will destroy one (1) part sulfide. For best
results, a determination of soluble sulfide levels is recommended. Begin
with a 1:1 ratio of OXY BIO to sulfide. Gradually increase OXY BIO levels
until results are obtained. For severe odor conditions, a shock dosage of
3:1 may be necessary for initial elimination of odors, then gradually
decreased until optimum dosage levels for control are determined.
OXY BIO destroys hydrogen sulfide by
chemical oxidation. The odor is eliminated and the sulfides are prevented
from forming corrosive sulfuric acid, thereby reducing corrosion in the
An added benefit is the antibacterial activity of OXY BIO. OXY BIO at 750
ppm will destroy 99.99% of streptococcus faecalis within ten minutes at 40
C, within twenty minutes at 25 C.
