A Midwestern wastewater facility was severely hindered by struvite blockage within one of their lift stations. The severity of struvite buildup had seized multiple valves and pump driveshafts throughout the system. Repeated hydroblasting attempts were unsatisfactory — only a few feet of the system was freed of struvite deposits after three days of cleaning. Labor costs and downtime strained their budget and operators.

The facility found a safe, simple solution in RYDLYME Biodegradable Descaler. A circulation loop was established and manipulated for each of the four pumps that needed to be cleaned. Each of the four loops was cleaned for two hours. Then the RYDLYME was flushed from the system along with the dissolved struvite. Operators were completely satisfied with the RYDLYME cleaning and the results have been shared with other facility personnel in order to schedule the next cleaning.
