Waterman Biocare Technologies Bio‐Block is specifically manufactured for slow release. Combination of selected surfactants, binders and salts form a protective gel when the product is immersed in water. This ensures that turbulence and shear forces of fast flowing effluent does not over dose the system nor reduce the lifetime of the product. For example, the 5Kg Bio‐Block will release approximately 125g active material per day – even at temperatures up to 50oC.
Additionally, Waterman Biocare Technologies Bio‐Block is available in a tight mesh sock that further reduces release by about 10X. The sock is manufactured from stitch bonded cotton and provides high tensile strength (see illustration below). This is useful in particularly fast flowing waste streams, or where a longer life time is required (up to 3 months).
Waterman Biocare Technologies Bio‐Block is completely soluble and leave no residue for disposal. If used in the sock provided, this is biodegradable and can be disposed of as compostable waste.
