Digester foaming events can have a catastrophic impact on gas production and wreak havoc on your mechanical operations. Left unchecked, a single foaming event can quickly develop into $10,000 or more in damages. What’s more, not all foams are created equal and may require different solutions based on the foam’s properties.
Our foaming study helps you to understand the nature of your foam so you can treat it quickly and effectively. It comes with a 1-hour consultation to identify the source of your foam and a sample analysis to identify a rapid solution. Further consultation will also be made available at a discounted rate as needed.
H₂S is an unavoidable part of anaerobic digestion. In trace amounts (less than 50 ppm) the effect on your anaerobic digester is negligible, your H₂S scrubbers can handle the load and operate at peak efficiency. At higher levels particularly reaching into the 100s ppm you’ll be overworking your scrubbers and increasing the odds of a breakdown requiring replacements or costly repairs.
Our sulfur study determines the best sulfur solution for your digester by testing a number of commercially available additives with your feedstock. At the conclusion of this study, we will offer our recommendation. Digester Doc is technology and product-neutral. We are not compensated in any way for any recommendations given, to make certain you get the best solution.
Gas yield downturns events are a complicated matter and could arise from countless scenarios. Anaerobic digesters are biomechanical systems. And while mechanical issues do occur, many digesters struggle because of biological issues. At Digester Doc we are the biology experts, with over 40 years of experience in aerobic and anaerobic biology.
A Biogas yield consultation would start with a free consultation call to establish some general information and identify possible testing avenues to determine the culprit for your downturn. Once we’ve identified the cause of this downturn we’ll not only provide recommendations to resolve this downturn but to help you increase to higher yield levels than you were attaining previously.
