Septicity & Odour Control

Without suitable treatment, sewage and wastewater can damage the environment and create public health problems. One of the problems associated with this is odour complaints which are caused when bacteria in the wastewater utilises all the available oxygen and reduces any sulphates present to 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 results in severe acid corrosion and septicity causing severe damage to sewers.

OMEX supplies a range of sodium nitrate and calcium nitrate solutions to help prevent these issues which can occur.

As well as the liquid solutions, OMEX can provide dosing system units for constant dosing which come in a range of sizes from 2,500 Litre to 15,000 Litre, custom designed for septicity dosing.
