An efficient, cost effective way to treat hydrogen sulfide (H2S)
1. Greater efficiency - Through both testing and implementation, S3 has shown to have a significant effect on both the rate and overall efficiency in the breakdown of sulfide when used alongside hydrogen peroxide, as opposed to using hydrogen peroxide by itself.
2. Safe - Ultra-S3 and its chemical components have been classified as non-hazardous under the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 (TSCA). It’s also chemically engineered to target problem compounds without destroying environmentally beneficial microbes.
3. Easy implementation – S3 treatment can be implemented within an existing sulfide-treatment infrastructure with minimal capital investment.
4. Greater protection for facilities – S3’s efficiency in breaking down H2S in a facility helps protect its infrastructure from costly deterioration and corrosion caused by the sulfide.
5. Also effective on other compounds - including benzene, methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), toluene, trichloroethylene, and many others.
A Proven Process – Case Study
One Northern California wastewater treatment plant used Ultra-S3 to eliminate a serious hydrogen sulfide problem. Although H2S is pungent in low concentrations, it paralyzes the olfactory nerve at levels above 100 ppm to render workers oblivious to the danger.
The wastewater in this plant had hydrogen sulfide levels of 7–10 ppm, which produced concentrations in the sewer air averaging 102 ppm and peaking at 250 ppm. The objective of the S3 treatment was to reduce the H2S concentration in the air to an acceptable level (less than 10 ppm).
The end result? Ultra-S3 process worked rapidly with most of the treatment being accomplished within 3 minutes of contact time. The treatment reduced the hydrogen sulfide concentration in the air to less than 1 ppm, a reduction of approximately 1200 pounds of hydrogen sulfide.
Equipment Requirements for Ultra-S3 system (UltraTech can help source components 2-4 if needed):
- Identify pH of the polluted water.
- Ideal pH range is between 7.2-8.4.
- Identify flow rate (gallons per day).
- Identify concentration of pollutant (ppm).
- Identify desired concentration of pollutant after treatment (ppm). This number is typically 0 ppm.
