Wastewater Treatment

If you are experiencing wastewater toxicity or treatability challenges, Respirtek™'s Technical Team can be of great service to you. Our staff is uniquely qualified as a result of years of experience working directly within significant industrial user companies and POTWs. Those years of experience have led them to develop Microbial Communication Service™. Respirtek™'s Microbial Communication Service™ represents the best of respirometric science combined with biochemical and microbiological analyses to assist you in problem solving wastewater issues.

POTW Wastewater

  • Are you recouping your chlorine or other upset costs when significant industrial users are out of compliance?
  • Do you know if significant industrial users are discharging within your permit parameters?
  • Are you minimizing your bioaugmentation product (bugs) costs by optimizing addition rates?

RespirTek™ can be of great assistance to you if you answered no to any of those questions. RespirTek™ is the only company to offer Microbial Communication Service™, representing the best of respirometric science combined with chemical analyses to assist you in problem solving and assuring that your costs of operations are minimized.

A few of our Service Points are:
  • Determine oxygen uptake rates (OUR’s)
  • Assess accurate charge/ loading cost to your Significant Industrial User (SIU)
  • Natural attenuation of land applied sludge
  • Determine Food to Microorganism Ratio
  • Determine return sludge control
  • Assess toxic additions damage to biomass and corrections options
  • Assist in project redesign kinetic data

Significant Industrial Users

  • Are you maximizing your discharge rates of wastewater to your POTW or Bio Pretreater?
  • Is your wastewater cost to product ratio the best it can be?
  • Can you accurately predict the cost of new or changed wastewaters before POTW discharge?
  • Do you know the impact and discharge rate of wastewater from your pilot or semi work product units before full-scale production?

RespirTek™ can be of great of assistance to you if you answered no to any of those questions. RespirTek™ is the only company to offer Microbial Communication Service™, representing the best of respirometric science combined with microbiological and chemical analyses to assist you in problem solving wastewater issues.

A few of our Service Points are:
  • Assessing treatability or toxicity of organic and inorganic wastes
  • Assessing anaerobic/aerobic biodegradation of specific organic chemicals or product lines
  • Support for the design and operation of laboratory-scale and on-site pilot plants
  • Measurement of kinetic parameters
