HEAT EXCHANGER STRUVITE REMOVAL
A Midwest wastewater treatment plant was experiencing struvite buildup in their heat exchanger as well as the 62’ of 6’’ piping. Struvite not only reduced heat transfer inside of the heat exchanger but also reduced flow! The struvite also prevented various 6’’ check valves and 6’’ plug valves from being able to close and seat properly.
The solution was RYDLYME! The system was flooded with 330 gallons of RYDLYME and water. RYDLYME was circulated throughout the system and the results are as expected – struvite is no match for RYDLYME! The staff of the wastewater treatment plant is very happy with the performance and safety of RYDLYME.
