RYDLYME dissolves struvite at wastewater plant

RYDLYME dissolves struvite



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 approach

  • 330 gallons.
  • Could not circulate due to design of system; pumped throughout pipe and let stand for 8 hours.
  • Used at 100% concentration due to time concerns (circulation on future projects should shorten cleaning times and amount of solution).


RYDLYME results

  • After 8-hour session and water flush, struvite was dissolved and flow rate returned to normal.
