When added to a lagoon, OxyPaks XL – Lagoon Oxygen Booster sinks down into the sludge layer. As the pack dissolves, peroxide liberates the sludge and punches holes in the muck layer. This increases the surface area and allows new pathways for the bacteria to get deeper into the sludge. The effect on the sludge layer is similar to core aerating your lawn. It also adds oxygen to the often anaerobic muck layer, to minimize odor production.
VitaStim Sludge Reducer and OxyPaks XL are also a good combination for wastewater operations with percolation ponds and rock filters.
Percolation ponds and rock filters tend to build up with sludge and dead organics. These clog the surface and prevent water from trickling through them. The use of both these products and help break up and digest organic matter so the water starts flowing again.
*OxyPaks XL – Oxygen Booster is sometimes used to offset toxicity, raise DO, and stimulate the bacterial environment in wastewater treatment plants. Call us if you have any questions, we’d be glad to help out.
Oxy Paks XL Applications

- Prevents downstream odors
- Neutralizes existing odors
- Easy to use
Better Together: OxyPaks XL and Sludge-Reducing Products. This product performs best when paired with VitaStim or Sludge Rx™ bacterial products. The oxygen release from OxyPaks XL liberates the muck from anaerobic conditions, creating new pathways for the sludge-eating aerobic bacteria to consume it. The surge in oxygen also supercharges those same bacteria for even more sludge-degrading activity.
