Corrosion Control

The presence of hydrogen sulfide gas is not only a nuisance and potential health hazard to humans, it can also cause severe damage to the collection system infrastructure. Hydrogen sulfide gas, when combined with oxygen and certain bacteria, produces sulfuric acid and the effect of sulfuric acid on concrete surfaces in the sewer environment can be devastating. Sewer lines, pump stations, and collection interceptors fail structurally because of concrete corrosion caused by sulfuric acid. But concrete is not the only material that can be affected by the corrosive action of hydrogen sulfide gas. Most metals present in the infrastructure of collection systems can also be attacked and destroyed by exposure to sulfuric acid. This might mean missing rungs on manhole steps, corroded and weakened manhole covers and rings or severe corrosion to brass and copper fittings.

BioMagic 500 eliminates these problems. Applied via a simple chemical injection pump in the lift station wet wells, it eliminates the existing dissolved sulfides to produce harmless sulfates and nitrogen while also providing bacteria with the necessary nutrients and oxygen to prevent any further formation of dissolved hydrogen sulfides.

These products are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, require no special handling or storage and are extremely cost-effective.

Cost savings of up to 50% on product alone have been achieved, since less product is needed to achieve the desired result. Re-filling of storage containers is reduced as are transportation and handling costs.
