All of our representatives are degreed individuals
from diverse backgrounds with hand-on operation
experience of biological treatment processes.

Our Treatability Lab is one of our many tools used to predict
and troubleshoot problems for multiple industrial waste streams.

We don’t just sell products, but turn key Product Programs
that link our products to regular laboratory testing and technical
assistance together to keep biological treatment systems fully optimized.


From producing apple juice to wine, this industry has its unique set of challenges. The most common issues we see are oxidizers from the CIP systems, macronutrient deficiencies, and rapid COD changes from product cycles. Oxidizers primarily come from CIP and can be amplified when there are lots of product changes. That’s why we like to key in on the ORP to understand how much the bacteria can handle. Macronutrient deficiencies are prone because many of the juice products have a high carbon load. The 1000:5:1 ratio is our go-to calculation for flushing this out. Lastly, COD overloads can cause problems when the campaign wants to ramp up faster than the bugs can handle. When that happens the VFAs can get out of control. To see how much the bugs can really handle to use an Activity Test.

Midwestern Grain Mill Has Settling Issues
Floc Load was lab tested along a number of other River Bend Lab products, and was shown to provide the best bacterial coagulation and settling.
