Removal of Ammonia can be a difficult process, but it is critical to maintaining a healthy wastewater treatment plant.
Upsets can be caused by several external factors such as shock loading, toxicity and solids loss. The microbes that have been isolated for EnviroDEFENSE® AmmoniaFixerTM will efficiently degrade the Ammonia, survive in harsh conditions and react quickly after nitrification disruptions.
EnviroDEFENSE® AmmoniaFixerTM is a fast and effective biological solution for nitrification. EnviroDEFENSE® AmmoniaFixerTM is a proprietary nitrification product formulated for a variety of wastewater types. The microorganisms in EnviroDEFENSE® AmmoniaFixerTM thrive in a wide range of wastewater types and respond quickly during upset conditions to restore balance.

|0 – 5,000||1 lb per day for 5 days||1 lb per week|
|5,000 – 50,000||3 lb per day for 5 days||3 lb per week|
|50,000 – 250,000||7 lb per day for 5 days||7 lb per week|
|250,000 – 500,000||15 lb per day for 5 days||15 lb per week|
|500,000 – 1,000,000||25 lb per day for 5 days||25 lb per week|

*The nominal dosage for optimum nitrification are typically one pound of product for every 12 – 15 pounds of ammonia require to be removed
|Dissolved Oxygen||> 0.5 mg/l||< 1.5 mg/l|
|Temperature||50° – 95° F (10° – 35° C)||77° – 95° F (25° – 95° C)|
|pH||6.0 – 9.0||7.0 – 7.5|
|Ammonia Residual||1.0 – 3.0 mg/l||2.0 – 3.0 mg/l|
|Ortho-phosphate Residual||0.5 – 2.0 mg/l||1.0 – 2.0 mg/l|
* Residual should be measured in the final effluent unless limited by permit restrictions
