Understanding the technology of the marine sanitation device
A marine sanitation device according to the definition of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is any equipment for installation on board a vessel which is designed to receive, retain, treat or discharge sewage and any process to treat such sewage. The MSD is required for onboard vessels that are installed with toilets and are operating in the US navigable waters (this includes the 3-mile territorial seas). The EPA has also issued regulations to set the standards of marine sanitation devices that address fecal coliform and total suspended solids. Onboard treatment through Type 1 MSD accomplishes its task through maceration and disinfection for the treatment of waste. It must produce effluent that has no visible floating solids and fecal coliform bacteria count that is less than 1000 per 100 millimeters. However, chemicals used usually destroy the aerobic bacteria required for the efficient operation of MSD. Noflex when used will neutralize the chemicals and will dissolve sludge on the piping system as well as the sanitation device.
The importance of Noflex
Noflex is used for business and industrial applications to lessen sludge buildup and handle unwelcome odors in squander treatment methods. Through the aerobic septic treatment device, squander that coats piping is cleaned prior to flushing to minimize unwelcome smells due to leaching from pipe connections and hoses. As soon as the digestor is inside the holding tank, it reacts immediately to neutralize odors by breaking down the organisms in wastewater. It will also liquefy solids and greases to ensure an effective pump out.
Noflex is now offered in retail packages to be used in marine vessels so that it can rapidly neutralize hydrogen sulfides, clear pipes and liquefy solids in the holding tanks. When the digestor is introduced in the holding tank, it will sink to the base of the tank because it is heavier than water. When it comes into contact with the aerobic concentrates and reacts with sludge, it will be lifted into the principal stream where it will be release micro-bubbles of oxygen that will allow for the growth of aerobic bacteria that feeds on sludge. The digestor will also release protein from sludge so that there will be an extra source of food for aerobic bacteria and other microorganisms.
There are suggested dosages for Noflex Digestor and it is important to continuously monitor the levels whether it is adequate. In many instances the product works best on a routine basis than if used in large doses. This will ensure that no unpleasant smells with permeate the marine vessel.
