How does the Noflex Digester works? Its main aim is to clean the pipelines and make sure there is no grime and grease left inside. The chemicals are flushed inside the pipeline and remove all the dirt and grime coating the inside of the pipes. If the cleanliness is maintained, no odor will develop and leak outside of the pipeline and hose. After its introduction into the holding tank, the digester works its magic not by covering the smell but by removing the stinking odor.
The digester contains a chemical compound that is heavier than water. This is the reason why after it has been injected into the system, the chemical compounds rapidly sinks under and stays at the bottom of the waste water. It is essential because all the anaerobic bacteria are found at the bottom together with the sludge which is a product of the dead bacteria. Once the chemical comes in contact with the sludge, a reaction happens causing the residue to rise above and join in the flow of the waste water. After the reaction is a simultaneous release of oxygen microbubbles which are responsible in helping the facilities decompose the leftover products on the waste water. While the waste are decomposing, there is a release of proteins from the sludge and provides a nutritional source for the live bacteria to feed on. From there, the bacteria will be able to work better since there is an ample supply of protein and the oxygen content is higher. This ensures that all the waste content in the water and the sludge are fully decomposed leaving the water safe and clean to be released out into other body of water without fear of impacting the environment.
The Noflex Digester is used for quite a long time already and it has proven to be a good solution in fighting foul odor while helping lessen the sludge accumulated in the waste water. Most common applications include marine vessels and coast guard vessels in order to treat the contents of the holding tanks while onboard. Though the product was first aimed to be used only in waste water treatment, its uses now extends to the marine as well as domestic use.
