Bio-Augmentation is the process whereby bacteria and other micro-organisms are dosed into a wastewater treatment plant in order to enhance or restart biological activity.
The short answer is yes, given the right circumstances.
Bio-augmentation should never be prescribed as a ‘cure-all’ for every ailment
Following a careful assessment of recent plant data and other critical factors such as temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, inhibition or mechanical failure, we will specify an appropriate solution based on our many years of experience. We will help you resolve any of the above issues to ensure that conditions are right for bio-augmentation to get your treatment plant back on its feet.
Take a look at some real-life case studies to see for yourself!
Corgin manufacture, install, commission and service BioReactors for administering bio-augmentation on your site. Installation and commissioning can often be completed within a few hours.
A Corgin representative will normally visit the site prior to installation to discuss the treatment and its
Micronutrient and biological stimulant are also offered for improving the biological performance of your wastewater plant.
Sidestream BioReactors are specially designed for propagating an ongoing on-site supply of selected bacteria and/or enzymes. Propagation on site ensures that the bacteria are always in an optimum metabolic state at the time of dosing. BioReactors are easy to install and their relatively small footprint allows flexible positioning on site.
A control system provides automated activation, dosing and refill cycles. A programmable timer allows the dosing time and frequency to be optimised. System status lights include an under/over temperature warning and a power-cut indicator. Built-in memory allows normal operation following a power cut.
The BioReactor is maintained at ideal temperatures by a
A heavy-duty submersible pump, activated by the programmable timer, transfers the culture through pipework to a carefully selected dosing point. This can be at some distance from the
