All strains of microorganisms that are manufactured produces high
concentration of hydrolytic enzymes. Throughout this bulletin, the
enzyme product" will be
used to denote a combination product of enzymes plus these special
strains of microorganisms or "seed cultures".
are often referred to as "hydrolytic organic catalysts".
In addition to having a technical sound, "hydrolytic organic
catalyst" is a term that accurately describes the function
and characteristics of these degradative enzymes. These products
have also been called "bioaugmentation" products. Enzymes
are basically proteins which act to speed up various biochemical
reactions without being changed themselves. Since they are proteins,
enzymes are subject to the conditions that often affect proteins.
They are very useful hydrolytic organic catalysts. They are an essential
building block in nature's scheme.
enzymes are biochemically active compounds and may be principally
made up of proteins, they are sensitive to environment conditions,
some enzymes are more sensitive than others. Some enzymes are extremely
stable and may even be boiled in water without completely losing
their activity. Traditionally those enzymes produced by the genus
of bacteria known as the Bacillus (which is comprised of rod shaped
bacteria) are reasonably stable and are well suited for various
types of industry use. However, all enzymes are sensitive in some
degree of temperature.
enzymes as well as beneficial bacteria are affected by heat and
environmental factors in varying degrees, it is best to take whatever
precautions that are practical in the storage and transport these
products to ensure maximum activity is retained. Microtack®
products SHOULD NOT be stored as follows:
1. In direct sunlight.
2. In enclosed truck bodies or metal buildings, unless adequate
ventilation is present.
3. In areas where toxic or oxidizing vapors are present.
4. In areas where extremely high humidity or moisture contacts the
5. In other areas where constant high temperature is encountered.
these precautions are followed, many months of retained degradative
activity are assured.
the enzymes are most active at warm (not hot!!) temperatures, and
since seed microorganisms are most active in this range also, the
maximum effectiveness can be expected during warmer conditions.
To allow the active components of microbial
to operate with the most effectiveness, their addition to a waste
treatment system should coincide with a time of minimal flow through
the system. This allows the waste degraders the most time to act
on the organic wastes. It is also much better to ensure that these
products are used in a regular program of routine maintenance.
microbial enzyme products have the ability to act as a microbial
seed. This allows the bacteria contained in products to multiply
within a waste treatment system. As these process continue to produce
more degradative enzymes, thus multiplying the original product's
effectiveness in preventing occlusions, attacking organic impediments,
and degrading organic wastes.
enzyme products will not by
themselves directly eliminate BOD or COD in a waste system. BOD
and COD are a measure of oxygen needed to biologically stabilize
a given lot of wastewater. Therefore, these are rough measurements
of the concentration of degradable waste or polluting substances
can, however, help a waste treatment system to reach a level of
high treatment efficiency and thus help the system to eliminate
BOD as rapidly as possible from a wastewater flow. These products
can help to liquefy solids and re-establish beneficial micro flora
in a biological waste treatment system. Some misinformed people
have argued that, because many wastes have naturally high bacteria
counts, to add a small number of specific micro flora to a treatment
system may not be very useful. However, these individuals have failed
to recognize the fact the industrially significant, specially selected
and acclimated strains of microorganisms supplied in Microtack®
products produce millions of times the levels of organic digesting
catalysts produced by wild type of microorganisms found naturally
in various waste. Therefore, a relatively small seed of these superior
microbes can significant affect the overall activity of a waste
holding, conveying, or treating facility.
enzyme concentrates offer an
environmentally sound approach to the effective control of organic
wastes when used along with good mechanical and design management
principals. By using these products in the most effective manner
possible, they offer an economically viable way of assuring the
optimal efficiency of biological waste treatment and conveying systems.
fermentation products are backed by over
10 years of experience and active participation in the waste treatment
industry. It is the philosophy of Microtack®
that consistency outstanding products
at reasonable prices can continue to aid people and equipments in
the waste treatment fields when that are sensibly integrated into
a good routine maintenance program.
