  • Grease trap treatment in a meat plant

    Meat plants tend to be major producers of fats and grease and this present problems in the wastewater infrastructure as it is not soluble in water. This leads to build up in drains and grease traps and the traditional approach to disposal is to physically remove it and ship it off site for licensed disposal. A new approach is to use bioaugmentation to physically degrade the grease so that it ...

  • Determination of Wear Metals and Additives (Soaps) in Lubricating Oils by Atomic Absorption

    Lubricating & hydraulic fluids are crucial to the proper functioning of many types of machines: automobiles, farm equipment, heavy-duty motors, airplanes, and military hardware. Most “lubes” are simple hydro-carbon based oils or greases that have certain additives in them to prevent wear and abrasion of components (piston rings, bearings, etc.) or oxidation degradation of the oil. These additives ...

  • Combined Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO) - Performance Focus: Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) Reductio Case Study

    In-PIpe Technology Company, Inc., drastically accelerates the natural degradation of fats, oil and grease (FOG) in the collection system, thereby removing blockages and occlusions from the pipe and significantly reducing the occurrence of FOG-related sewer overflows, as well as the requisite equipment and manpower required for the physical removal of these blockages. Since In-Pipe started ...

  • Success with failed grease traps

    Mr. Bill Sprague of Sprague Septic, Inc called to request assistance in resolving a problem with a grease trap that had not been pumped for a long time. He advised that the grease trap had a surface grease accumulation of about three feet in depth and that the cap could not be removed. AquaClean suggestion – We recommended the application of two gallons of AquaClean directly to the surface of the ...

  • Missouri city wastewater treatment plant case study

    Project Summary Missouri City selected In-Pipe Technology, Inc. to provide a collection system bioaugmentation program reduce influent load, energy costs and sludge production at the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). The program is also designed to control fats, oil and grease (FOG) accumulation and odor in the collection system. In-Pipe Treatment Strategy ...

  • Determination of oil and grease in water with a mid-infrared spectrometer

    The concentration of dispersed oil and grease (OG) is an important parameter for water quality and safety. OG in water can cause surface films and shoreline deposits leading to environmental degradation, and can induce human health risks when discharged in surface or ground waters. Additionally, OG may interfere with aerobic and anaerobic biological processes and lead to decreased wastewater ...

  • Assessment Of Tropical Grasses And Legumes For Phytoremediation Of Petroleum-Contaminated Soils

    Phytoremediation is a promising technology for the clean-up of petroleum-contaminated soils, especially in the tropics where climatic conditions favour plant growth and microbial activity and where financial resources can be limited. The objective of this work was to identify tropical plant species from the eastern savannahs of Venezuela suitable for this technology. Three legumes (Calopogonium ...

  • A critical review of experimental and predicted methane generation from anaerobic codigestion

    Anaerobic digestion is increasingly being considered as a treatment option for an extensive range of waste biomass, due to the potential for energy recovery, in the form of methane production, and lower sludge volumes relative to aerobic treatment processes. Furthermore, when two substrates are codigested (i.e. digested together), added benefits are foreseeable, such as increased methane ...

  • CH#1138 - Anaerobic Digesters

    Waste Type: Fats, oils and grease (FOG) in Anaerobic Digesters Problem: FOG waste poses a challenge for most municipal wastewater collection systems and treatment plants. Although fats, oils and grease will biodegrade in an anaerobic digester, high concentrations will tend to 'mat' on the sludge surface, lowering digestion efficiency. This Midwestern municipal facility was no different. The 1.5 ...

  • FOG Waste receiving and processing facility design considerations

    Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) wastes and high-strength wastes (HSW) are frequently received at municipal water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) as trucked-in wastes. These wastes offer significant benefits in terms of revenue from tipping fees and feedstock for co-digestion in anaerobic digesters that produce biogas, which can be beneficially used as fuel. The number of treatment plants ...

  • Treatment of pumping wells case study

    Results from an Australian Trial Problem The pumping wells had accumulated fat and grease on their walls. With time septic conditions had set in giving rise to strong malodours and the local residents had started to complain about the smell. In addition acids produced under septic conditions were damaging the structural integrity of the pipes and pumps and increasing ...

  • CH#835 - Grease Removal

    The problem of degrading 6,000+ ft of grease daily has an easier solution than thought at the 27 MGD a Massachusetts Waste Water Treatment Plant. 'At one time, the plant had more grease in its scum pits than it could handle,' said an  engineer . 'Worse yet, there was nowhere to put it. Local landfills stopped accepting greasy solids.' Now the plants grease problem has been virtually solved. ...

  • Fat Trap case study

    During the summer season at a busy National Park, we were asked to give assistance with a blocked soakaway drain. Due to the location and the time of year the soakaway had to be treated rapidly and with the minimum of disturbance. Then drain received combined effluent from a busy restaurant (which had not been maintained) and a large septic tank that served several public toilets. The pipe ...
