VitaStim Summer Slam Case Studies
Rendering Plant Holding Pond
A rendering facility had a 4 acre pond, 6 ft deep, with about 4-5 ft of sludge that is discharged into everyday from the wastewater treatment plant. This holding pond receives roughly 500-600 ppm of BOD, 7.8 pH, and 25-30 ppm of ammonia each day. They needed an economical way to reduce the sludge, BOD, and odors. In addition their pond downstream developed high TSS.
They began feeding 2 lbs per day of VitaStim Summer Slam along with OxyPaks XL for three months, then started VitaStim Polar to keep sludge at bay during winter.
Within three months, the sludge was reduced to 2-3 feet throughout the entire lagoon. With the use of these products, the facility biologically reduced sludge, BOD and odors in their main holding pond, and reduced the TSS issue downstream. This facility continues this program every 2-3 years.
