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.
Wastewater Biomass Analyses
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.
Microscopic analyses of any biological system should be a critical component of any ongoing daily monitor and control programs. Lab sheets to correlate health of the system, any changes in floc structures, higher life forms, filamentous identification, polysaccharide coating of the bacteria and suspended solids can be determined by using a microscope and examining the biomass. This is a tool that can help not only show exactly what the health of the system is at a given time, but can also help predict which direction the plant is headed if used daily. It is a tool that can also help prevent critical upsets, or be used as an early warning. In the cases of filamentous problems, staining and identification of the filamentous can help with troubleshooting and help avoid costly chemical consumption.
Well, I do not know how to do
that myself, what can I do. . You can send in a wastewater sample to
our lab for an analysis. Our Lab biomass analysis can troubleshoot from your
What would that analysis consist of?
A wastewater biomass analyses would consist of a number of different things. A brief cover letter explaining the overall health of your system as observed through the sample. Any suggestions for troubleshooting that might be indicated by the observations noted. The report includes an analysis of the floc, the higher life forms and possible filamentous identifications if requested.
What is a wastewater biomass analysis? The Wastewater Biomass Analyses consists of two sheets, a Higher Life Form sheet and the Floc Characterization Sheet.
What is the Higher Life Form or “Indicator Organism” Sheet?
The Higher Life Forms Sheet shows the number and types of higher life forms found in the wastewater sample. It is usually performed under the microscope at 100x. An average of 10 fields is used to determine the number and types of life forms. The purpose of recording the number of higher life forms is to determine the health and age of the system. Typically the organisms represent only 5% of the biomass. These organisms are exactly what they are called-Indicator organisms. They are usually the last to come and the first to go in a system if it is not running properly. They usually correlate to the plant performance. They can indicate if the sludge is young, old or medium aged. They can sometimes indicate if there had been a recent slug of high BOD loading.
things that may be noted on your sheet:
The Floc Characterization Sheet
The Floc Characterization Sheet is used to identify outstanding characteristics of the floc structures found in the biomass, including size, morphology, filament abundance, etc.
Structures and Filaments
Filaments can be internal or external and they can be free of the floc structures or found intertwined in the floc. Filaments present in the system do not always have to mean a problem. Some filaments are good if they form a strong backbone and add a rigid network to the floc. They help give the floc more structure and settle faster. Filaments are good BOD degraders also. They are only a problem when they become dominant. If filament abundance is in the abundant or excessive range, having a Filamentous Identification performed is recommended.

Sample Case History
Ok, you convinced me. How do I go about sending in a sample?
1 We have a Chain of Custody Excel form below to use or your own
What will I need to send in?
Send in 100 mls of MLSS in a small, plastic bottle with at least 2-3 inches of headspace/airspace in the bottle so that the bacteria have sufficient oxygen during transit and does not turn septic. Seal the bottle carefully. Send overnight by UPS, Fed ex- etc. If possible, pack with blue ice to keep refrigerated during warm weather months.
For Trickling filters or RBC’s please collect supernatant with biomass that sloughs off.
For foam or scum samples, collect foam or scum off surface, place in plastic container, again leave air space in container.
We are now offering GO GREEN to our customers.
We will not send any paper copies of the report in the mail. Just the CD with the full report, photos and videos.
Please let us know if you want to GO GREEN for the environment.
