THIBACILLUS COMPLETE

Plastic Media Biofilter

PROBLEM

A Florida Municipal facility has a lift station near a populated area that contained levels of H2S up to 200 ppm. This created many odor complaints from the surrounding citizens. A trial biological filter was used to treat the odors from this system with Thiobacillus bacteria. The feed water, though having some nutrients, was not at optimal levels for Thiobacillus.

SOLUTION

It was determined that a complete macro and micro bioavailable nutrient solution would benefit the scrubber. River Bend Labs offered their Thiobacillus Complete mix, which contains a blend of both N:P:K nutrients and proper trace nutrients in a bioavailable form to optimize growth and removal of H2S by Thiobacillus bacteria. Thiobacillus Complete had been used in large scale anaerobic biological H2S scrubbers quite successfully, and was well suited for the smaller application of odor scrubbing, as it is a concentrate.

Thiobacillus Complete was added to the system and an increase in system removal and stability was observed.

After longer term testing, correlations with and without the Thiobacillus Complete were preformed. The findings were that the addition of Thiobacillus Complete allowed for higher over-all H2S removal, as well as better response to large H2S concentration shifts.
