Filamentous Identification Lab Service. One reason to identify filaments is to determine the filaments characteristics and then determine the type present. If the type is found out, a root cause can usually be associated with a particular filament. If the cause is known, then a correction can be made to alleviate problems. Chlorination is only a quick fix. Without process changes, filaments will grow back after chlorination.
Wastewater Biomass Analyses and Cooling Tower Analyses also available
Training is an integral part of any job. Not everyone is at the same level of training. Many people want beginning concepts and basics. Some need technical information or troubleshooting. Some want equipment, technology or process information.
We have developed a full set of Basic training, Advanced training, Filamentous Identification the Easy Way as well as custom training CD's Manuals. We also provide hands-on training classes and soon will have an Online "E-University".
Audits and Consulting:
At Environmental Leverage® Inc., we have a team of experienced individuals who come into your plant with a fresh pair of eyes. The system is checked from influent to effluent. System optimization, equipment efficiency and operational excellence are key components explored. Key Benefits Equipment efficiency Total Cost of Operation reductions Reliability and safety
An onsite audit is conducted to examine system parameters, process controls, and current monitor and control procedures. A physical walk-through is conducted, process flow diagrams are examined, previous design criteria are examined and current standard operating procedures are evaluated along with data logs.
We have just added "Virtual Audits" to our capabilities. Check out our new Services. We are in the process of developing an ""Online E-University" in order to meet the needs of our global customers that cannot travel to our public classes. Stay tuned for details and updates.
More than 10,000 living diatom species are known, there are over 8,000 species of Algae, there are 1500 species of Blue Green algae or Cyanobacteria, there are 6000 species of red algae or Rhodophyta . . . . the list goes on and on- ok, so identification is not as important as why is it growing, how it impacts my plant and how to get rid of it!!!
Fungi and filamentous bacteria can be similar to Cyanophaecae or algae, the difference will be in the coloring due to the pigments from Chlorophyll used during photosynthesis.
Algae can be found in a variety of environments, soil, fresh or saltwater. They come in various sizes and shapes. They can be single celled, have flagella and be motile, they can be branched. They can be red, green, brown or blue-green.
They are usually common in a biotowers or a trickling filter. They can be found in many clarifiers, and in many lagoon or pond systems. They are often found in ornamental ponds or fountains. They are usually not dominant in an activated sludge, due to the amount of MLSS present, and sunlight cannot penetrate through the MLSS. They can cause "plugging or ponding".
There are various different controls depending upon the type of system, the cause and the location of the algae. See our troubleshooting guide for Algae problems.
Problems associated with Algae:
Algae can cause numerous problems. Algae can cause TSS problems in a system, can give false BOD readings, can clog pumps, cause short circuiting if build-up is on the weirs of a clarifier.
These photomicrographs were taken from many wastewater samples. Most of the objectives used were 100x and 400x. Some photos were taken at 1000x.
