Septicity Control from Omex

Omex Environmental extend their septicity control range with their new Calcium Nitrate solution, Anomex 76.

Roughly 96% of the UK population is connected by sewers leading to sewage treatment works, small private treatment works, cesspits or septic tanks.

Sewage is generated by residential, institutional, commercial and industrial establishments. It includes household waste liquid from toilets, baths, showers, kitchens, sinks and so forth that is disposed of via sewers. In many areas, sewage also includes liquid waste from industry and commerce.

Without suitable treatment, this sewage and wastewater can damage the environment and create public health problems. One of the problems associated with municipal sewage is odour complaints. This is caused when bacteria in the wastewater utilises all the available oxygen and starts to reduce any Sulphates present into Sulphides. These Sulphides produce the characteristically unpleasant “rotten egg” smell. This lack of air supply, stagnant areas and warm temperatures all promote undesirable biological activity, which also results in severe acid corrosion causing significant damage to sewers.

Omex has introduced Anomex to prevent this undesirable scenario. Both Anomex 64 and Anomex 76 are non-hazardous liquids designed to prevent sulphide gas build-up by substituting nitrogen in the microbial respiratory process. Anomex 64is the Omex Environmental Sodium Nitrate product and Anomex 76 is a new calcium nitrate solution manufactured at the Omex Environmental Lincolnshire factory, where Omex have invested in a production plant specifically for this product. Both products are proven to be extremely cost effective and efficient septicity control agents, tested, used and approved by UK water companies.

As well as the liquid solutions, Omex provide the Dosing System Units needed to dose Anomex. These come in a range of sizes from 2500 Litres to 15,000 Litres and are custom designed for septicity dosing. These Units can also be made to specific requirements. Omex Environmental Project Engineers can visit your site andascertain dosing requirements in order to provide the optimum dosing system. Dosing units are manufactured at the Omex Environmental Kings Lynn factory. Anomex dosing units can be supplied with telemetry or the solution is delivered on a predictive delivery system managed by the Kings Lynn office, to guarantee your unit never runs out of product.
