Byo-Gon PX-109 has historically been utilized by large facilities with high organic effluent loading (paper mills, food processors, rendering plants, etc.) to stabilize their plants and handle upsets caused by BOD loading shocks into their systems. By increasing the cellular metabolism of the existing bacteria in these plants, these shock loads can be muted and handled more effectively to reduce negative impacts on operations and effluent quality.
Byo-Gon PX-109 works to increase microbial activity using a patented alkaloid (similar in action to caffeine) to stimulate respiration rates of resident microbes and help make the wastewater treatment system more robust. The net result is a healthier biomass and a more stable treatment system.
This project data from a large paper mill shows how much more stable the secondary wastewater system is when being treated by Byo-Gon PX-109. The significant swings in MLSS (mixed liquor suspended solids) prior to treatment can cause upsets in downstream clarifiers and effluent quality and require constant operator attention. With the much smoother plant operation created with Byo-Gon PX-109 addition, the system handles upsets more effectively and excellent effluent quality is easier to achieve.
