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.

Wet Corn Milling

The corn kernel has a simple appearance but can be broken into complex pieces. Wastewater treatment performance can vary depending on which part of the corn gets down to wastewater. High solids loss, elevated VFAs, and mechanical issues are all too common at wet corn mills. The high solids loss can happen with an system designed for ethanol gets some oil or vice-versa. VFA’s are common when the food to mass get high from spike loadings. Mechanical problems are unfortunately also much too frequent. Over time settlers can become unlevel, feed headers star to plug, and mixers don’t mix like thy used to. Identifying mechanical issues is one of the hardest things to do because you almost have to exhaust everything biological first.
