Rydall WO reduces BOD, FOG, COD, TDS & H2S in sewer system!

The city of Oconto, Wisconsin was looking to reduce corrosion from high levels of H2S at one of its sewer line lift stations, as well as odors that resulted in several complaints from residents. The system was also experiencing high and fluctuating levels of BOD, FOG, COD and TDS. The city turned to RYDALL WO Water Optimizer to reduce those levels.

RYDLYME cleans blow down line from cooling tower system

A Canadian plastics and chemicals company, turned to RYDLYME to clean piping that has never been cleaned in its 30 years of service. The 5,000-foot carbon steel blow-down line from the plant’s main cooling tower system suffered from severe mineral scale that progressively increased over the years causing significant flow issues. The system has not been close to its designed flow rate of 125 gpm for several years...

Plate and frame heat exchanger cleaned

A California biodiesel manufacturer wanted to test RYDLYME on one of its fouled plate and frame heat exchangers within the methanol recovery division of the plant. A byproduct of the biodiesel manufacturing process, methanol is extracted from spent cooking oil and grease, vaporized and recovered in plate and frame heat exchangers. Scaling inside the units were inhibiting proper heat exchange, making the entire recovery process inefficient.

RYDALL DD removes oil buildup on heat exchangers

A Midwest glass manufacturer had severe oil buildup on its heat exchangers (6 feet long with an 8-inch diameter) that had accumulated over the course of a few years. The client was skeptical about the effectiveness of RYDALL DD Definitive Degreaser as they tried several other cleaners and degreasers in the past to no avail, but agreed to try it.

RYDLYME descales and cleans chiller and cooling tower

A hospital was experiencing significant cooling problems with its 350-ton chiller and cooling tower due to severe scaling. This scaling only allowed the system to get temperatures down to around 75°F. Also, the chiller was constantly running and making so much noise that the staff moved blankets onto the unit just to keep the sound from disturbing the patients.

RYDLYME cleans Bi-Carbonate System at paper plant

A major paper plant in Pennsylvania used RYDLYME to dissolve mineral deposits within its Bi-Carbonate System (Bi-Carb), which controls alkalinity in the plant’s process water system. The Bi-Carb produces scale buildup inside the mix and day tanks, plugging up the system’s pipes, strainers and other components.​

APEX Monthly January 2013

Welcome to the New Year and the inaugural edition of APEX Monthly! Apex Engineering Products Corporation is proud to introduce APEX Monthly, a resource for news on our safe chemical solutions, as well as various contaminants and equipment maintenance. In this issue, learn about... Our new RYDALL OE Odor Eliminator and RYDALL WO Water Optimizer How RYDALL OE took on pungent odors from a cheese manufacturing facility The hazards of FOG (fats, oil and grease) ...and more!

Eliminating odors from cheese and dairy facility

A specialty cheese manufacturer in Wisconsin had an ongoing odor problem since installing a wastewater treatment system, which includes a 4,000-gallon wastewater sludge tank. The primary odor problem was coming from the sludge tank, which was pumped out and taken off-site about once a week. The odor emanating from the wastewater process was a source of complaint from neighboring facilities and businesses, as well as from the town's police headquarters five miles away!

RYDLYME used on vacuum pumps and cooling tower at power plant

A power company in the Midwest had severe calcium deposits in its vacuum pumps and cooling tower mist eliminators. The scaling severely hindered the performance and overall life of its vacuum pumps, forcing the company to overhaul all its vacuum pumps on a regular basis. The company turned to RYDLYME to not only address the scaling issues, but also increase the longevity of its vaccum pumps, as well as its cooling tower mist eliminators.

RYDLYME removes struvite in pipe

After dissolving 1,600 feet of struvite-corroded pipe at a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), RYDLYME descaler was called in again to dissolve more struvite. This time the buildup was within 500 feet of pipe on the inlet side of the solids centrifuge. The severe buildup reduced the capacity of the pipe to only 20 cubic meters per hour (88gpm).

RYDALL MP removes oil buildup in vertical oven stacks

A manufacturer of metal lids for canning food had a heavy oil buildup in its vertical oven stacks. This accumulation of oil was a serious safety concern for the plant. RYDALL MP was presented as a solution to this severe situation.

RYDLYME cleans descales heat exchanger at oil refinery

An Oklahoma oil refinery was in urgent need of a solution to a critical exchanger that was experiencing very high process side temperatures. Scale accumulation on the cooling water side (tube side) of this exchanger was determined to be the cause of the escalation in process side (shell side) temperature. With shutdown not being an option, a continuous injection of RYDLYME descaler was proposed to get the refinery back to acceptable operating temperatures.

RYDLYME dissolves scale on injection molding machine

An injection molding company in Michigan was experiencing problems with one of its 950 Mitsubishi injection molding machines. The machine was shutting down on high temperatures up to four times a day! Severe scale accumulation in the machine’s cooling system was the cause of the high temperature shutdowns.​

RYDLYME descales and cleans absorption chiller

A major Midwest university was experiencing problems with its 1,250-ton York absorption chiller, mainly with approach temperatures reaching 30°! Severe scaling in the condenser bundle was identified as the reason for the inefficient operation and RYDLYME was called upon to get rid of the scale.

RYDALL MP cleans containers at recycling plant

A waste management company in Canada was experiencing problems removing contaminants from plastic containers that were being cleaned to prepare them for recycling. RYDALL MP was recommended as a solution to these problematic contaminants.

RYDLYME dissolves struvite at wastewater plant

A wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) had a severe buildup of struvite throughout 1,600 feet of piping effectively reducing the 6-inch diameter to 1 inch. Known to have the consistency of concrete, the struvite was no match for RYDLYME.

RYDLYME dissolves deposits in turbine condenser

Heavy mineral deposits within a main turbine condenser at a combined cycle power plant were the culprits in significant heat transfer loss. The client put RYDLYME to the test against sulfuric acid to see which one could break through the severe buildup and restore the system's appropriate level of heat transfer.
