Formula 99C - Bacteria supplement for cold temperature wastewater

Low temperatures in wastewater can pose problems including reduced biological activity and increased solidifying of fats, oils, and grease.

Formula 99C is a unique blend of psychrophilic (cold loving) bacteria that thrive in colder water temperatures and effectively produce enzymes and metabolize BOD. It ensures consistent treatment performance even when the wastewater temperature is as low as 36ºF.

* * Add as regularly as possible. If it is required to miss one day, add that day’s product with the next dosage.

Dosage rate will vary with flow rates, retention times and system variations.

Do not add to the treatment system at a location where toxic or otherwise adverse pH, dissolved oxygen or temperature conditions may exist at peak levels.

For optimal results the wastewater and treatment system should meet the following conditions:
Optimum Minimum
Influent pH 7.0 5.0
Dissolved oxygen, ppm 2.0+ 1.0+
C/N/P ratio 100/10/1 100/5/1
Temperature 30°C (86°F) 10°C (50°F)
Toxic metals, ppm
(E.g., hex., chromium)
0 0

Storage and Handling:

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place.

Handling: Wash hands thoroughly with warm, soapy water after handling.
