Alken Clear-Flo® 4000 line

This is a sampling of fats, oils & grease problems we have solved in the past. We are constantly pushing the envelope of technology, creating new formulas and new systems to solve a wide variety of pollution problems. Do not assume that we cannot solve a situation just because it is not on this list, we specialize in custom solutions. When the other companies give on Claudia, Valerie & Ken.

1) Laboratory tests show waste degrading performance of Clear-Flo 4000, even in the presence of high concentrations of a popular laundry detergent. 
2) Liconsa in Mexico - Application of Alken Clear-Flo® 4000 almost doubled TSS and VSS reactor removal rates, 27% improved clarity of effluent, COD reduced by 52%, and solids settling reactor rate improved by nearly 76%. Click HERE for Spanish language version.
3) Dosage rates for use of Clear-Flo 7000 and Clear-Flo 4003 in a rabbit factory is described. (Rabbits.wpd)
4) Domestic RBC plant and collection system with additional grease and oil buildup problem, treated with Clear-Flo 7108/4103 in the collection system. Plant problems treated with Clear-Flo 7008/4003 in summer and Clear-Flo 7018/4003 in winter with a small amount of polymer added to the gravity settler. (Collect.wpd)
5) Psychiatric institute in Virginia used Clear-Flo 4100 to keep drain lines clean. - 1992
6) A Southwestern US hair care products manufacturer had significant problems with dyes and grease overloads on an under-designed system. They were heavily fined for discharges up to 40 times the permitted levels. TPH was decreased from an average 500 ppm to an average 12.5 ppm (a decrease of over 97%) with Clear-Flo 4000 and 7100 treatment, despite a too-short retention time. (Haircare.wpd) .
7) In 1992, a dairy's activated sludge system treated with Clear-Flo 4003 to degrade dairy byproducts and Clear-Flo 7002 to degrade the CIP sanitizers. Settling improved from zero to 100-300 ml.

8) Clear-Flo 7008 used to eliminate hydrogen sulfide while Clear-Flo 4003 used to degrade oils and improve mixed liquor solids control and COD reduction.

(also applicable to other edible plant oils - original case study LOST - no additional info.)

9) Midwestern Resort used Clear-Flo 4100 to aid grease trap, drain lines - 1991
10) Clear-Flo 4000 and 7000 as used in 1993 by a Shinto, China Eel farm processing plant is discussed - photos ( EelFarm2)
11) Thailand shrimp processing plant improved effluent with Clear-Flo 4003 in the anaerobic lagoon & Clear-Flo 7000 in the aerobic lagoon. BOD effluent decreased from 100 to 30 mg/l while SS decreased from 120 mg/l to 50 mg/l (Shrimpfarm5.DJC)
12) Septic System Augmentation Study - Alken Clear-Flo 4000 was proven effective in a 1 year septic system study in 1994, testing results in 7 residences, cuncurrent with laboratory batch reactor tests which simulated shock loading with detergents and BOD. (Septic.wpd)
13)Clear-Flo Helps Sausage Manufacturer Meet Discharge Permit in Two Weeks. One of Europe's largest sausage manufacturers, faced fines in 2002, for discharging up to double their permitted level of BOD and up to 26% above permitted COD levels. AM Greek distributor, BioBest used a blend of Alken Clear-Flo products (CF 7000, 7004, 7008 and 4003) by three weeks and continuing good results with lower levels of treatment for three months.
