02:29 Overview of Toxicity Symptoms and Causes
05:15 Acute Quaternary Amine Studies
09:32 Recovery from Toxicity Studies
11:57 Toxicity with Temperature Change Studies
14:36 Tests on Quat Binding Products
15:55 Recovery of Nitrification after Toxicity
17:26 Testing on CounterQuat
19:50 Preventing Toxicity
CounterQuat is a next-generation technology developed to protect wastewater bacteria from toxicity, especially the effects of quaternary amines.
can you test for quats?
A technical rep will be reaching out to you shortly with more info!
Quats and others similar product:
is it possible that quats (cationic charge) can react with orthophosphate (like coagulant – Al ou Fe product), and
1-reduce the concentration of o-PO4 available for biomass?
2-act like EDTA (i.e. maintain phosphate in solution/soluble state) and passes through an ultra filtration membrane??
We don’t think that Quat will prevent phosphorus suspension or bind to phosphate. Quats are reactive with cells due to polar/nonpolar interactions. Phosphate wouldn’t behave similarly to a cell membrane as it is a soluble ion.
Hope this helps.
