Aquafix Wastewater Testing

“I learned more in twenty minutes of talking with the Bugman than in my twenty years of running this wastewater plant. You are of great service.”- Terry J. Dow Reichhold Production Facility, Chickamagua, GA

Microanalysis & Filament Origins

Microanalysis & Filament Origins

The Microanalysis & Filament Origins is $425.00 and consist of:

Sample Requirements: at least 1/2 bottle for each area tested.

  • A review of major and minor filaments plus subspecias with Gram and Neisser staining
  • Testing of EPS sliming
  • Precise explanation of filament presence and origin
  • Analysis of protozoa and metazoa in the system
  • Analysis of floc structure, sludge age, and oxygen penetration
  • Treatment and process recommendations
  • Results returned by e-mail and hard copy
  • 3-4 day turnaround

Treatability Study

Treatability Study

The Treatability Study is testing for biological wastewater systems. Treatability testing is priced at $1,260 for the majority of situations. Certain tests will take longer, and the rate will be communicated during a pre-treatability study conference call.

Treatability Study testing involves the creation of a specialized testing for each individual plant to find the best solutions we have available. Since testing is different for each plant, we occasionally need to run tests multiple times to prepare an optimal method for each individual system. We also may need additional sets of samples after receiving the first set. Sample volume also can vary significantly in these studies. Make sure to contact Aquafix before sending in samples for treatability studies as this will limit the number of sets of samples you will need to send, as well as the time it takes to complete the study.

Treatability Study testing begins with a comprehensive overview of your wastewater plant design and operation. Diagrams of the engineering and data bench sheets may be needed.

Testing includes:

  • Comprehensive Treatability Study – a comparison of treatment options
  • Treatment recommendations based on an in-depth analysis of the entire wastewater system
  • Microanalyses & Filament Origins Test
  • Recommendations for wastewater odor issues
  • Results returned by e-mail and hard copy
  • 2-16 week turnaround

Treatability testing begins with a comprehensive overview of your wastewater plant design and operation.  Diagrams of the engineering and data bench sheets will be needed.  Specialty testing includes degradation of FOG, fatty acids, total petroleum hydrocarbons, and toxicity testing for heavy metals and other.

Treatability Study is recommended for:

  1. Nutrient Reduction Testing: comparative studies of different treatments to improve nutrient reduction (This includes COD, ammonia and phosphate)
  2. TSS Reduction Testing: Comparative studies of available treatments to determine the best method for reducing TSS in wastewater plant effluent
  3. Odor Control Study: Comparative study on the effectiveness of odor neutralizing products and other methods for odor control
  4. Toxicity Testing: Analyze methods to help wastewater treatment plants recover more quickly from toxicity and find ways to prevent toxicity problems in the future when possible
  5. Other Testing: Feel free to give us a call to find out if we can create a specialized test and solution for your specific needs

In these tests we will use the following tools:

  • Chemical oxidation
  • Catalyst breakdown
  • Use of different bacterial strains, fungal strains, and micronutrients
  • Aerobic vs anaerobic conditions
  • A combination of the above

The goal in treatability studies is to determine the best method for improving wastewater treatment plant function. This includes chemical options and altering operation conditions as well as Aquafix products.

Proactive Microanalysis Program

The Proactive Microanalysis Program is a bundling program of testing that allows operators to get ahead of conditions before they become a problem. It costs $1200.00 and consists of:

Sample Requirements: at least 1/2 bottle for each area tested.

  • 4 Microanalysis and Filament Origin tests, use at your own pace
  • Spot potential problems before they become a major issue
  • Filament ID, EPS Sliming, Floc Structure and Oxygen Penetration, and More 
  • Helpful recommendations to improve biology function and optimize treatment plant
  • Get a clearer picture of how your plant conditions evolve over time
