VitaStim Sludge Reducer

Sludge Reducer naturally decreases sludge blanket thickness at 1/10th the cost of dredging. With VitaStim Sludge Reducer you can easily remove 30-60% of sludge from your lagoon. As the bacteria go to work consuming organics you’ll also notice improvements in effluent BOD, TSS, and decreased odor.

VitaStim Summer Slam

VitaStim Summer Slam is a blend of biostimulants and select bacterial cultures designed to explode in warm temperatures, thus degrading sludge and waste at dramatic rates.

OxyPaks XL

OxyPaks XL is an oxygen source that is used is wastewater lagoons, as well as sand and rock filters, to accelerate the digestion of sludge and prevent odors. This product allows the VitaStim Lagoon Line to better penetrate the sludge and degrade it.
