The Dynamic Duo makes use of the combination of our VitaStim Ammonia Assimilators and VitaStim Nitrifiers for premium ammonia removal. They contain high amounts of active nitrifying bacteria including Nitrosomonas, Nitrospira, Nitrobacter and heterotrophic nitrifiers at the highest concentration in the industry. They also contain powerful micronutrients to boost the growth and reproduction of the nitrifying bacteria.
The combination of these two products produces the fastest nitrification recovery. The biostimulants and hetrotrophic cultures in VitaStim Ammonia Assimilators works with the VitaStim Nitrifiers concentrations to produce the highest and fastest growth rate. We use two types because they remove ammonia with two different mechanisms, in a certain sense, you can say one is like rear-wheel drive and the other front. The use of both propels your plant to ammonia removal and full nitrification.
The Dynamic Duo are specifically adapted to work in a range of wastewater conditions, taking into account the chemistry you currently use, any physical limitations of the plant, and the present microorganism population.

VitaStim Dynamic Duo
A Virginia Beach wastewater authority operates a 50 MGD wastewater treatment plant, and from time to time their plant struggles with nitrification.
As you can see from the chart below, the addition of VitaStim Dymanic Duo turns the plant around fast.
Within 3 days the ammonia levels were in compliance. See Graph in New Window
Sugar Processing Plant
A sugar processing facility in Minnesota lost nitrification in its aerobic tanks. This facility has a 1 MGD flow rate, their basin is 2 MGD, and the ammonia level was at 189 ppm.
They ordered 9 gal of VitaStim Nitrifiers and 9 gal of VitaStim Ammonia Assimilators. Then added 4 gal of each product initially and then added 1 gal per day thereafter.
4 Days Later: The effluent ammonia had lowered to 17.2 ppm “It was like magic.” – Dr. David Rein, PhD, PE, Rein & Associates
“We operate a 50 MGD facility in Virginia, and last February we lost nitrification due to excessive rainfall. Ammonia is typically non detectable and went up to 14 ppm. We added the nitrifiers and 10 days later were back in compliance. We were skeptical at first, but it works great” – Michael, Large County Wastewater Authority in Virginia.
“I used a much cheaper nitrifier that I bought from a major catalog, and my ammonia actually went up. I switched to VitaStim Nitrifiers and Ammonia Assimulators and they went down.” – Steve, Western Pennsylvania
“We have a small town with two sequencing batch reactors (SBR’s). Once in a while someone dumps something into our wastewater plant, and the ammonia will start heading up. We keep the AQUAFIX nitrifiers around because the ammonia will go down within 3 days of adding the VitaStim Nitrifiers and Assimulator” – Jeff, Winnebago County, Illinois.
“It was the end of winter, our plant got hit by high pH from a local industry, and we lost nitrification. VitaStim Nitrifiers had us back in compliance in 3 days. I highly recommend it.” – Jim, Langlade County
