Bulking sludge and foam control

​The solution to prevent bulking sludge and foaming problems

The formation of bulking sludge and foam in a biological process is mainly due to specific sludge properties. Kemira FilamentEx has been developed to address these problems and bring stability back to the wastewater process.

Kemira FilamentEx offers a superior way of promoting good sludge structure to avoid bulking sludge and foam. Experience shows that the treatment must be resolute and determined. Otherwise there is a risk of environmental damage and foam overflow problems and, in the worst cases, process failure and lower treatment capacity.

Tailor-made treatments

Kemira FilamentEx is built on experience, knowledge, research and analysis. This makes it possible to correctly diagnose the problem, draw the right conclusions and come up with a well-balanced treatment.

To prevent formation of bulking sludge and foam, our program includes:

  • chemical, physical, and biological analysis
  • recommendations
  • treatment
  • follow-up
