RYDLYME removes struvite in pipe

RYDLYME descales struvite




After dissolving 1,600 feet of struvite-corroded pipe at a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), RYDLYME  was called in again to dissolve more struvite. This time the buildup was within 500 feet of pipe (6- and 8-inch in diameter) 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). 


RYDLYME approach

  • 825 gallons.
  • Circulated via 1 1/2-inch centrifugal pump for 8 hours.


RYDLYME results

  • The capacity of the pipe increased from 20 cubic meters per hour (88gpm) to an astounding 220 cubic meters per hour (968gpm)!
