Elimination of Hydrogen Sulfide Odors with CAIROX ® CR Potassium Permanganate Tablets


May 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm (CDT)
Presenter: Dr. Pamela Dugan, Carus Corporation

Webinar Summary:
This webinar will feature CAIROX® CR Potassium Permanganate Tablets as a unique controlled-release (CR) formulation that dispenses permanganate slowly into flowing water. CAIROX CR Tablets are a safe, easy-to-handle oxidant technology designed to treat odors in municipal and industrial wastewater at remote sites, lift stations, or where feed equipment is not practical. The CR technology is very fast reacting with H2S (on the order of seconds) and other organic odor-producing compounds, making it an excellent choice when retention times are very short. In the fall of 2015, a Midwestern Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) with typical daily flows of three million gallons per day was receiving neighborhood complaints about strong H2S odors coming from gravity interceptors. This presentation will highlight the use of CAIROX CR tablets as a novel and cost-effective choice for H2S removal.

Pamela serves as the Business Development Program Manager for Carus Corporation where she is responsible for new product and business development in the fields of environmental remediation and industrial water treatment. She has a B.S. from Indiana University, a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, and is a registered professional geologist. Pamela has over 15 years of remediation experience with particular focus on chemical oxidation, bioremediation, and metal removal technologies.
