A Midwest wastewater treatment plant experiencing struvite buildup on their centrifuge systems turned to RYDLYME Biodegradable Descaler as a solution to remove the rapidly growing scale buildup. Their previous cleaning method consisted of personnel utilizing hand chisels which proved to be a strenuous task and not very effective. For the RYDLYME cleaning, the basin of the horizontal centrifuge was filled with a 20% RYDLYME solution, and then the centrifuge was set to rotate at 5 RPM. The unit was inspected 16 hours later.
The wastewater treatment plant personnel were extremely impressed with the RYDLYME cleaning results! After the cleaning, the centrifuge looked brand new. RYDLYME was able to remove buildup from areas/crevices that were utterly impossible to access via mechanical cleaning methods.
