Issues due to Struvite Formation

Struvite Removal is of major importance for wastewater treatment plant personnel and Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations personnel. When Struvite is discovered at the plant in the form of crystals, scale or rock, the operational efficiency of the plant has begun to diminish and in the worst case, it will be severely compromised. Struvite scale and crystal rock buildup in pipes, valves, and pumps will slow the flow of material at the plant. Struvite scale on heat exchangers will make it more difficult to maintain the temperature in the digester.

Struvite Removal offers Struvite Remover STSR, our struvite removal acid that is buffered and non-corrosive to steel and unbroken skin, which will dissolve struvite and solve these issues.

Once Struvite is discovered in the plant it must schedule a time to be down so they can remove and dissolve struvite scale, with Struvite Remover STSR, it will be a much shorter downtime, saving both time and money. There are several different methods to best remove or dissolve struvite, but there is one clear favorite choice for Struvite removal that is cost-effective, with an easy delivery system, our Struvite Remover STSR.

Recirculations have proven to work 5x faster in lab testing.

What customers are saying about Struvite Remover STSR:

“We got the stuff. I made a jar-test and it works like magic.”

 “The cleaning went great and basically removed everything. That pressure has now dropped to 0.3 bar at the same percentage.  Heat exchanger is also working great.  Adding about 5.5 degrees Celsius to my percolate coming out which in phenomenal.  I will definitely be buying more product…” 

 “The struvite remover you supplied has been excellent in the removal of struvite from components within the percolate system including the percolate pumps. Everything went well and the end product “a clean system” was achieved. So thumbs up!”

“I finally was able to use your product on one of our screw presses which it seems to work very quickly at 100%... then hosed it down after about 20 - 25 minutes. In all I used about 3.0 gallons and didn't have to do any scrubbing.”
