Turbidity is a measure of the cloudiness of water- the cloudier the water, the greater the turbidity.

Organic Digester (216FP) For Control of Turbidity

Turbidity is a measure of the cloudiness of water- the cloudier the water, the greater the turbidity.

Turbidity problems in living aquatic ecosystems mainly result from multicellular planktonics. They are always present in healthy aquatic ecosystems. These planktonics occur through (rapid reproduction) when nutrient levels increase at rates greater than can be metabolized by background bacteria. Nutrient level increases result from water runoff in golf courses, farm land and residential neighborhoods that would use fertilizers containing organic and inorganic nutrients in the form of phosphates, nitrogen compounds, fats, oils, greases and any other organic or inorganic substance with nutrient value. Decaying organic material and aquatic waste can also cause turbidity.

The addition of Organic Digester will metabolize the nutrient contaminates. Organic Digester microbes will accelerate digestion of the decaying organic and inorganic material. The end result will be the reduction of turbidity.

Additionally, the microbial attack of decaying organic material will cause the bacteria to attach to the bottom particles, thus increasing their weight which results in settling, i.e. the particles will fall to the bottom as they are being digested. Organic Digester also reduces total suspended solids (TSS) by changing the electrical properties of the inorganic suspended particle. As a result the particles tend to clump and fall to the bottom.

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) also cause turbidity. These are eliminated by direct metabolism and by changing the electrical state causing soluble substances to become insoluble. Precipitation occurs and the particles settle to the bottom.

Bottom sludge will also be reduced. This process will occur slower due to the oxygen poor conditions that exist in sludge.

Organic Digester is designed for use in aqariums, ponds, lakes and lagoons where the accumulation of organic wastes and odors is a problem. Organic Digester is composed of natural occurring bacteria that metabolize organic waste into harmless compounds of CO2, H2O, etc.

Organic Digester is an effective means of restoring and maintaining water bodies to a balanced and healthy aquatic ecosystem. It is harmless to fish, aquatic vertebrates, crustaceans, plants and works in both fresh and salt water.
