WATERCO LIMIN8TM – Hydrogen Sulphide Treatment
Odour Control, Sulfide Scavenger and Acid Eliminator
LIMIN8™ is a new organo-imino compound that offers significant advantages for treatment of hydrogen sulphide with chemistry that specifically targets hydrogen sulfide, organo-sulfur compounds and mercaptans. LIMIN8™ is a truly safe product that is useful to industries, wastewater treatment, and petrochemical refining for removal of foul smelling sulfurous chemicals from waste systems and from the atmosphere.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
Highly effective sulfide scavenger and acid eliminator across a wide range of applications. Controls hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans in wastewater treatment facilities, digesters, sludge tanks, lagoons and lift stations. Excellent for use in the counteraction of hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans and foul odour conditions through atomizing, spraying or fogging methods. LIMIN8™ can be diluted for atomizing, spraying or fogging to levels between 1 and 3000 ppm for safely removing poisonous and corrosion-causing hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, and foul odours from a wide variety of locations such as above tanks, settling ponds or lagoons, sludge dewatering areas, lift stations, air gaps, manholes, and culverts.
Highly Effective – LIMIN8™ is truly a step forward in hydrogen sulfide scavenging technology. Unique new chemistry is synergistic with wastewater systems, bacteria and enzymes. Quickly and specifically binds up sulfur, including stripping the sulfur from poisoned beneficial aerobic bacteria and enzymes which have been deactivated by the sulfur bond.
Increases Biological Activity – LIMIN8™ frees up sulphur bound beneficial bacteria causing a natural increase in O2 that in turn optimizes the bio-chemical balance of the system. In other words, LIMIN8™ does its job and frees the bacteria to do theirs.
System Safe – LIMIN8™ has no negative impact on downstream operations and does not generate sludge (not a precipitator) and biodegrades completely in normal wastewater treatment processes without loading solids into the system. LIMIN8™ is not corrosive to concrete, steel or plastic and requires no scrubbers. LIMIN8™ is not an acid or oxidizer, does not cloud water or generate scale and is not regulated. LIMIN8™ is removed by chlorine leaving safe biological compounds.
No Special Equipment Required – No special equipment, hardware or capital investment is needed to dispense LIMIN8™. There is no need for special tanks, pumps or chemical resistant piping.
High In-Use Economy – LIMIN8™ is a breakthrough in economic treatment of H2S and malodour conditions as well as wastewater. Low chemical addition rates and catalytic regeneration of the LIMIN8™ molecules mean that LIMIN8™ can be the lowest cost solution to sulfide scavenging – cheaper than all currently available treatments. Although LIMIN8™ offers the lowest possible cost compared to current treatment, efficacy is its greatest benefit.
Reduced Toxicity – LIMIN8™ also demonstrates low toxicity because it is reaction specific without negative toxic consequences.
Long Lasting – LIMIN8™ is not quickly consumed by wastewater and is not volatile, so it stays in aerobic solutions.
