The presence of hydrogen sulphide IMG_Industry_Corrosion.pngas    is not only a nuisance and potential health hazard to humans, it can also cause severe damage to the collection system infrastructure. Hydrogen sulphide gas, when combined with oxygen and certain bacteria, produces sulfuric acid and the effect of sulfuric acid on concrete surfaces in the sewer environment can be devastating.  Sewer lines, pump stations, and collection interceptors fail structurally because of concrete corrosion                                        caused by sulfuric acid.  But concrete is not the only material that can be affected by the corrosive action of hydrogen sulphide gas. Most metals present in the infrastructure of collection systems can also be attacked and destroyed by exposure to sulfuric acid. This might mean missing rungs on manhole steps, corroded and weakened manhole covers and rings or severe corrosion to brass and copper fittings.


                                           “Severe hydrogen sulphide                            
                                             corrosion may reduce the
                                             50-100 year life expectancy
                                             of infrastructure to less than
                                             10 years.” According to an EPA study 


ENSOL 5000 eliminates these problems. Applied via a simple chemical injection pump in the lift station wet wells, it eliminates the existing dissolved sulphides to produce
harmless sulphates and nitrogen while also providing bacteria with the necessary
nutrients and oxygen to prevent any further formation of dissolved hydrogen sulphides.

ENSOL 5000 is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, requires no special handling or storage and is extremely cost-effective.

Cost savings of up to 50% on product alone have been achieved, since less product is
needed to achieve the desired result. Re-filling of storage containers is reduced as are transportation and handling costs.
