Casa Grande's Water Reclamation Facility Uses OHxyPhogg™ To Help Reduce Odors And Reduce Costs

Fort Lauderdale, FL - The Casa Grande Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) in Arizona is now using OHxyPhogg™ as a low energy odor reduction technology to help address odors associated with its headworks operations.

The WRF includes a bio-scrubber for the headworks and the preceding diversion box. The City looked at many options to reduce odors at the headworks, and after careful evaluation, decided to refurbish the existing bio-scrubber and couple the existing technology with the Parkson OHxyPhogg™ in-situ, chemical-free fogging system.

The OHxyPhogg™ was installed at the diversion box, where it treats the odors entering the facility. While this installation has only just begun and more testing will be conducted over the coming months, the city found that the H2S levels were reduced significantly after just one day. The City expects the OHxyPhogg™ to continue to help reduce the H2S levels before they enter the refurbished bio-scrubber. OHxyPhogg™ is expected to increase the service life of the bio-scrubber media thus reducing the operating costs.

While OHxyPhogg™ systems are often deployed independently, as this installation demonstrates – they have the flexibility to work in conjunction with carbon or bio-scrubbers to save electricity costs and improve the overall effectiveness of the odor control system. Additionally, since the OHxyPhogg™ treats the offensive odors in-situ, plants can save a considerable amount of money on decreased engineering and permitting fees as well as reduced installation costs, given fewer required ducts and blowers.

With over 200 installations in the United States, the OHxyPhogg™ is a proven technology that is self-contained, requiring only minimal electrical power and water to operate. OHxyPhogg™ systems combine ozone, water and air to create a hydroxyl radical fog that is efficiently dispersed throughout confined spaces, such as lift stations, wet wells, holding tanks, and headworks areas. The fog creates a chemical reaction that reduces or eliminates H2S and other odorous compounds. The reaction time is faster than that of chlorine, and the reacted chemistry condenses safely back into the water stream.
