Blasting a FOG Mat to Oblivion

KCD provides a simple, fast, efficient, cost-effective, and ruggedly reliable tools for getting rid of FOG Mats (making the resulting mix easy to pump down), odors, and sewer gases. As it heads downstream, the KCD Mix keeps cleaning. Now that’s performance!

For quick, efficient, and ruggedly reliable FOG blasting where FOG mat/mass accumulations are a persistent problem, KCD fixes the problem. In this video, the service utilizes a 200 gallon water tank, trash pump, and 2″ hoses. One-third bucket of KCD goes into the tank, where it’s mixed by recirculating using the front (or, working end) of the hose (forming a closed loop/looping recycle flow). Recirc for a minute. The remaining 2/3rds of the bucket goes directly into the well as a powder where it coats the top of the FOG mat. Blast with the KCD Mix by ramping up the trash pump. Together, the KCD works to quickly to cationically deconstruct and mobilize the FOG mat. Even rags become more slippery (and much easier to pump, rake, or vacuum) This method also recruits underlying wastewater into the mix. Deconstruction occurs within 2-3 minutes. Now, pump the watery mix downstream. As it moves through the pumps and down through the lines and mains, it’ll continue cleaning (and it won’t recongeal). Very efficient. Cost effective. Simple. Safe. Green & Clean. Work smarter, not harder with Kationx Tech!

(below) After 1 bucket of KCD added as a powder, followed by a 15-minute washdown, the station is clean. FOG mat’s gone. Work smarter, not harder, by using safe, green/clean, non-toxic, non-corrosive, Kationx Technology!

Odor Control for Wastewater Lagoon

A recent field test in Ohio removed a serious odor problem that had become a significant public nuisance. No clear solution to this persistent seasonal problem has ever been found. Treated with KCD-X this week, the odor was gone instantly. Kationx has a new customer!

SETTApHY™ Flocculant – THE Biosolids & Digester Sludge Settling Agent

SETTApHY™ is an all-natural, green & clean tech, cationic, wastewater flocculant that efficiently and effectively settles biosolids and digester sludge. It’s ruggedly reliable in water at all temperatures and regardless of pH.

SETTApHY™ lowers TSS, TDS, nitrates, phosphates, and ammonia in discharged effluent. Biosolids & sludge settle faster and more thoroughly with Kationx SETTApHY™ Natural Flocculant. Get better looking (less turbid) discharged effluent, too.

(below) In-field, field expedient bucket test on mixed liquor that’s not settling. SETTApHY settled biosolids (60%) creating a supernatant column that was clean & clear.

SETTApHY™ Natural Flocculant settling comparison test. The difference is clear!

(above) The left jar features biosolids treated with polymer. The water is turbid with significant TDS & TSS. The right jar used SETTApHY, achieving better settling with a more consolidated biosolids layer (with less water entrained). The water column clarity means less entrained TDS & TSS, in turn containing fewer nitrates, phosphates, ammonia and bacteria. Less chlorine is needed to disinfect, and discharged effluent is compliant with less pin floc & nutrient load. SETTApHY is a clean & green fix – safe, simple, non-toxic, non-corrosive. Won’t upset the plant or harm the environment. Work smarter, not harder, with Kationx Technology!
