A midwestern wastewater facility was severely hindered by struvite blockage within one of their lift stations. The severity of struvite buildup had seized multiple valves and pump driveshafts throughout the system. Repeated hydroblasting attempts were unsatisfactory in that only a few feet of the system was freed of struvite deposits after three days of cleaning. Labor costs and downtime strained their budget and operators!
Their safe, simple solution came in as RYDLYME Biodegradable Descaler. A circulation loop was established and manipulated for each of the four pumps to be cleaned. Each of the four loops were cleaned for 2 hours. After which, the RYDLYME was flushed from the system along with the dissolved struvite! Operators were completely satisfied with the RYDLYME cleaning and the results have been shared with other facility personnel to schedule the next cleaning.
