What can Qwik-Zyme D do for your digester?
The catalysts in Qwik-Zyme D convert insoluble BOD to soluble simple sugars and materials so the bacteria can digest it. This process promotes great digester sludge reduction.
Many new wastewater treatment plants do not have primary treatment. This means the aeration basin catches everything including hard-to-digest fats, surfactants, paper products, and complex chemistries sent by industries.
In other words, all the insoluble BOD goes into the digester or sludge storage tank, and Qwik-Zyme D is going to significantly reduce it.
If you think filaments are causing poor settling, contact the Aquafix Laboratories for microscopic analysis.

The Story Behind Qwik-Zyme D
Four years ago we visited Jim, a wastewater operator who wanted a product to put in his aerobic digester to reduce sludge and save hauling costs. Our lab researched and ran tests to understand why certain materials and solids were not breaking down properly. It took two years to create a biochemical catalyst this powerful and helpful to the bacteria.
We took it to Jim, and it improved his settling and reduced his hauling by 40%. Jim and many operators continue to use our Qwik-Zyme D and swear by it.
