The Problem

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a colorless, toxic gas with a foul, pungent odor similar to that of rotten eggs. Controlling this gas is one of the most challenging aspects facing the municipal and industrial wastewater treatment industry today. The gas is highly toxic to humans and will breakdown to corrosive sulfuric acid. Additionally, mercaptans and organic acids represent another souce of nuisance odor.

The Solution

Sul-Fixx odor eliminator is a superior, multiple action product, which effectively eliminates a wide variety of offensive odors. Sul-Fixx encapsulates the sulfide gas so much less of it can be expressed. Plus, the product retards the activity of desulfovibrio desulficans bacteria, which is a predominant producer of H2S, without the toxic effects associated with other technologies. Once retarded, the sulfur reducing bacteria can not reduce sulfates to mercaptans and sulfides. The product is specfically designed to be applied in sludge presses, closed loop process water and wastewater systems and air scrubbers.

Application

Sul-Fixx was developed to eliminate the production of H2S and organic acids in various wastewater and process water systems. In order to be effective, strategic feeding points must be identified.
Sul-Fixx will remove hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans on contact. This reaction occurs instantly and is irreversible. Sul-Fixx will inhibit future production of hydrogen sulfide by offering an alternative oxygen source to the sulfate reducing bacteria. Additionally, when combined with an effective bacterial seeding program, odor generated from organic acids and mercaptans can be effectively controlled. Odor type and intensity are the key factors affecting Sul-Fixx feed rate and frequency. With experience, users will be able to determine the optimum dose rates for their particular situation. Consult your sales representative for precise dosing information.
