Similar to many other chemicals, the price of Ferric Chloride has fluctuated over the years. While customers can typically handle slight changes, the industry has seen fluctuations in pricing, as large as, 4X the previous market average in recent years. For small to medium wastewater treatment plans, a price increase on a high-demand product, such as Ferric Chloride, encourages operators to search for alternative treatments.
For treating wastewater systems with bioaugmentation, spring is the perfect time for treatment to begin. During the spring months, temperatures rise which increases microbial activity and speed of treatment.
Microbial Discovery Group’s Wastewater Technical Team has visited hundreds of facilities around the world and sees the same common problems when spring approaches: H2S, odors, FOG and sludge.
Pairing our Biotifx® Treatment program
Franklin, WI - Microbial Discovery Group (MDG), a leading Bacillus fermentation company, announced the newest addition to their Biotifx® wastewater treatment line – 40B Water Soluble Packets.
The Biotifx 40B Water Soluble Packet is a highly concentrated, microbial treatment for lagoons and other large wastewater systems. The powder is pre-measured and the packaging dissolves in water, making it easy for operators to apply.
Could you benefit from higher income per sales hour? Lower hours spent per close? Higher close rates?
This is what’s possible when you distribute quality, science-backed bioaugmentation solutions that are paired with an easy-to-understand, product education program for your sales team.
Premium Solutions + Effective Training = Success
At MDG, we’ve taken the time to work with the scientific community to not only understand what’s
Earlier in this article series, we touched on how bioaugmentation treatments for wastewater have been around for 50+ years to help resolve toxic upsets. We also explored how Bacillus, a certain genus of bacteria that can be used in microbial treatments, are resilient to oxidizers.
Today, we’ll examine how Bacillus are resistant to another powerful but non-oxidizing anti-microbial: Quats.
What are Quats?
Quaternary ammonium compounds
When distributors participate in our Biotifx® program, they become armed with the knowledge and confidence they need to support their customers with superior microbial wastewater treatments – even during the winter months. The program includes onsite training, straightforward product application guides and tools, even an on-site technical service rep if/whenever needed. And cool products too.
Help Improve Cold Weather Performance
Before we walk through how to help your customers optimize their WAS holding systems, it's important to understand how they work.
How does a WAS Holding System work?
Waste Activated Sludge (WAS) holding systems are a common part of operations in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). A WAS holding system, typically in the form of a sludge tank or lagoon, holds sludge after it has been wasted or removed from a clarifier. WAS systems may have
When selling microbial products and programs, you’ll inevitably encounter a customer that says, “I’ve tried something like that before and it didn’t work”. This kind of experience often links back to one of four common mistakes that were made prior to or during treatment.
In this guide, we’ll go over these mistakes and how you as a distributor can avoid making them by choosing a microbial solution and partner that gives you the
Many of us know what happens when you mistakenly under-preserve a biological product: the bottles start to bulge or suck-in (the latter can also be caused by fragrance issues), fungal growth starts to appear or it starts to have an unpleasant odor. But do you know what signs to look for if your product is over-preserved?
There is usually one noticeable sign of an over-preserved product: the customers who were consistently using your product
For many of us, our day-to-day lives have changed quite a bit since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. We learned how to work from home, physically distance, use Zoom, cook homemade meals and use lots and lots of sanitizers and disinfectants. With the increased usage of these powerful cleaning supplies and washing them down drains, wastewater facilities are challenged with keeping their system’s natural ecology in balance.
