What is Thioguard?
THIOGUARD TST (Total System Treatment) is a non-hazardous, non-pharmeceutical alkaline slurry for use in the treatment of municipal water and wastewater. Magnesium hydroxide is most recognized as “milk of magnesia,” a safe treatment for acid stomach. The technology is simple. Addition of relatively small amounts of THIOGUARD added upstream directly to municipal wastewater collections systems and/or wastewater treatment plants:
• Stops odors by preventing the formation of hydrogen sulfide
• Reduces collection system and plant corrosion
• Provides a highly efficient non-carbonate buffered (<10 pH) source of sustainable alkalinity and pH for plant nitrification and BNR processes
• Enhances plant clarification and dewatering
