Sewer cleaning
QM Environmental Services Nederland offers solutions for maintenance and odour control in sewer networks which experience clogging and foul odours. These solutions are available for both gravity as force main sewer networks in industry and municipalities.
Clogging problems in drains, grease traps, sewer lines and pumping stations caused accumulation of animal and vegetal fats, oils and greases (FOG) cause nuisance for businesses and municipalities. Clogging never comes at a good time for business owners and result in high cleaning costs. For municipalities and water companies the maintenance costs for clogged lines and pumping stations can also be considerable and the produce nuisance to residents living in the area experiencing clogging and odours.

Treatment of a municipal pumping station with MicroCat®-BioPOP

The microbial MicroCat® products offered by QM Environmental Services Nederland have proven themselves in many applications in The Netherlands and abroad solving and preventing clogging problems in sewer networks of industries and municipalities. Our products work on a preventative basis, preventing clogging and foul odours from forming. This saves not just on the overall maintenance costs for the system but also prevents nuisance for the surrounding environment.

H2S & Odour control in sewer networks with MicroCat®-ANL

MicroCat®-ANL offered by QM Environmental Services Nederland is a microbial liquid developed to reduce odours which occur in sewer lines and pumping stations. Odours escaping from these networks contain volatile fatty acids (VFA’s) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S), better known as rotten egg smell. H2S is a toxic gas which is not only dangerous to human health but also corrodes concrete and metal parts of the sewer network. H2S is created by the activity of sulphate reducing bacteria (SRB’s) which are naturally present in sewage and can proliferate under conditions when oxygen is absent. SRB’s breath sulphate and exhale sulphides which react with hydrogen to produce H2S. H2S occurs mostly in force main sewers where no air is present in the sewer lines.

MicroCat®-ANL contains microbes which degrade volatile fatty acids and convert sulphide into elemental sulphur (S0) thus preventing H2S from being formed.

MicroCat®-ANL dosing system in force main pumping staiton

Our products can be applied in drains, grease traps of restaurant and industrial kitchens. In drains, traps, buffer tanks, pumping stations in food industry and in municipal sewer networks.

Contact one of our product specialists for more information.

MicroCat®-ANL is liquid mixture containing selected, adapted heterotrophic bacteria for the degradation of the volatile fatty acids and photolithoautotrophic and chemolithoautotrophic bacteria for converting sulphides into elemental sulphur under anoxic conditions. The product is formulated for use in sewage, sludge, compost, contaminated soils and surface waters to reduce odours and enhance biodegradation under oxygen limiting conditions.

The bacteria in MicroCat®-ANL degrade volatile fatty acids and prevent the formation of hydrogen sulphide (H2S).

Ideally suited for use in grease separators, buffer tanks, pump & sewer pumping stations and sewage pipes that suffer from odor problems and/or accumulation of grease. The  MicroCat®– BioPOPs are designed for easy placement, attachment and removal via a rope or chain in such systems. A MicroCat®-BioPOP has an average lifespan of 2 to 3 months. The block dissolves slowly in water and continuously releases fat-degrading bacteria that break down the fat in the system into CO2 and water.
MicroCat®-DNTRF is a highly concentrated microbial powder for use in food industrial application which suffer from fat, oil and grease (FOG) accumulation in drains, wells, sewers, buffer tanks and other water carrying installations. The microbes in MicroCat®-DNTRF convert FOG into het CO2 and water.
A concentrated liquid vegetable enzymatic cleaner. Suitable for cleaning surfaces smeared with greases such as e.g. walls of grease traps and sewage pumping stations.
A liquid microbial suspension for keeping low-frequently used drains in restaurant kitchens clogging and odor free. Also reduces the floating layer in grease traps. Suitable for both manual and automatic dosing with a programmable peristaltic pump.

For keeping intensively used drains from fast food restaurants, industrial kitchens of healthcare institutions, meal services, etc.. free from blockage and odor. Easy to dose with peristaltic dosing pump
