When it comes to oxidant chemistry in collection systems, you have many choices. You need to find the one that best matches site specific challenges and keeps costs under control. This often means that a multiple lift station collection system benefits from using multiple technologies. To choose among technologies it helps to:
- Know the strengths and weaknesses of each approach
- You need to know the system - map out ORP, discover anoxic/anaerobic zones, find out where FOG is accumulating and why - there is a lot to mapping out the problems, but it is a vital step in optimizing treatment.
- Implement solutions and monitor/adjust programs.
Now for most used oxidant technology options.
