UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate

Reduce ammonia for wastewater treatment.

Ready-to-pour solution reduces ammonia levels for municipal & industrial wastewater treatment plants and lagoons.

 
  • An effective solution for ammonia reduction.
  • 100% safe, effective, biological solution for ammonia reduction.
  • Non toxic.
  • Reduces ammonia levels in wastewater treatment facilities, lagoons, and industrial wastewater processes.
  • Provides a rapid response for ammonia reduction associated with EPA limits.
  • Available in easy-to-use bottles. Simply shake & pour.

UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate is a liquid concentrate that is ready to use directly from the bottle or pail. UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate can be poured directly from the bottle (or pail) into the treatment stream or body of water to be treated. It is intended to rapidly restart nitrification in plants that normally nitrify but have suffered toxic shock, or need to begin a seasonal nitrification treatment program.

How much is needed to reduce ammonia levels? Dosage is based on retention times:

Plants with 6 to 12 hours retention time in secondary aeration: Dose at the rate of 5 ppm for three days, 2 ppm for the next 4 days, followed by one ppm for the next seven days. Plant restart should be complete in 14 days or less. Example: Plant with 9 hours of aeration detention time, and 1.6 MGD flow, requires 8 gallons per day for two days, 3.2 gallons per day for 4 days, and then 1.6 gallons per day for seven days. Total gallons required for this example is 40.1 gallons. Unit cost for the UltraBac Concentrate is $40 per gallon. Cost to treat this system in this example is $1600.

See the following table for additional details on calculation:

PPM MGD Gal/Day Days Cost
5 1.6 8 16 $640
2 1.6 3.2 12.8 $512
1 1.6 1.6 11.2 $448
Total     40 $1600

Plants with 12 to 36 or more hours of retention time in secondary aeration: Dose at the rate of 3 ppm for 3 days, 1.5 ppm for the next 4 days, followed by one ppm for the next seven days. Plant restart should be complete in 14 days. Example: Plant with 24 hours of aeration detention time, 1.6 MGD flow, requires 4.8 gallons per day for 2 days, 2.4 gallons per day for 4 days, and then 1.6 gallons per day for seven days. Total gallons required for this example is 30.4 gallons. Cost per gallon is $40. Cost to treat this system in this example is $1216.

See the following table for additional details on calculation:

PPM MGD Gal/Day Days Gallons Cost

1.5  1.6 2.4 4 9.6 $384

Total       30.4 $1216

Should you use the ready-to-pour UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate or The UltraClear System for Nitrification?

Which should you use? You need to determine which solution provides the best value and benefits. The 'Ready-To-Pour' UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate is not as economical on a per day comparison, but also does not require the investment of a start-up system (i.e., UltraClear Growth Chamber), set-up, installation cost and ongoing operation. In addition, it can be used immediately upon receiving it. The shelf life of 'Ready-To-Pour' UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate is two years after receipt at your facility, so the product can be kept on hand to deal with nitrification upsets, spikes in ammonia levels, or other changes in an immediate and timely fashion.

 

Where do you add the UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate?

In general, add the finished product to the head of the aeration tank.

Single Stage Aeration tank: to the head of the aeration tank.

Multi stage unit: to the point where nitrification is just beginning.

 

Cost

The UltraClear Nitrifying Concentrate cost $12.95 per quart or $40 per gallon.
