Costly Methods of Struvite Control

A common way to remove Struvite is to simply replace the equipment. This however means much unnecessary downtime, labor, and equipment costs. Some have estimated this to be a minimum of $200 dollars for every foot of piping, while excluding many factors into the equation.

The other more common option is to treat chemically. This can either include a Hydrochloric acid flush in attempt to dissolve the Struvite during downtime, or with ferric chloride to prevent it from forming. However, both of these come with great consequences. Both of these options are highly corrosive, hazardous, expensive and can create much greater problems in the long run such as ruined equipment, lowered pH, increased solids that need to be removed later, or now forming Vivianite with the added iron into the process.

Replacing Equipment or Hydrojetting:
  1. A lot of downtime
  2. Labor intensive (High costs!)
  3. If any struvite remains will grow and accumulate much faster
Using Hydrochloric Acid to remove struvite or vivianite scale:
  1. Highly corrosive
  2. Highly Hazardous
  3. Leads to damaged equipment
Struvite Remover JS 9325:
  1. Non-corrosive to steel
  2. Mild irritant and safe on unbroken skin
  3. Safe and easy to use application (Low labor costs!)
  4. Environmentally Friendly
  5. Cost-effective and will not damage equipment
Using Ferric Chloride in the sludge feed to the centrifuge will:
  1. Change the % volatile solids in the cake
  2. Slow down the formation of struvite in the bowl and scroll area of the centrifuge.
  3. Change polymer usage
  4. Add iron solids to the cake (increasing dewatering cost)
  5. Additional sludge is formed
  6. Additional cost can be incurred with use of caustic soda due to pH of centrate reduced by ferric chloride
Struvite Preventer and Inhibitor JS 9310 will:
  1. Not affect the polymer usage
  2. Disperse the Mg so it is not available to form struvite in the bowl, scroll, centrate line and centrate tank.
  3. Reduction of sludge generation and scale formation
  4. Reduce corrosion, labor, maintenance and energy consumed
  5. Enable you to control struvite formation
