THE BIOREMEDIATION PROCESS With Ozzy® Microbes
THE PROPRIETARY CRC SMARTWASHER® IS A BIOREMEDIATING PARTS-WASHING SYSTEM. Through the process of BIOREMEDIATION the CRC SmartWasher® eliminates the need to haul away old used dirty parts washing fluid.
THE CRC SMARTWASHER® BIOREMEDIATING PARTS WASHING SYSTEM CONSISTS OF THREE IMPORTANT ELEMENTS THAT WORK TOGETHER to create one amazing and complete parts washing system. As long the CRC SmartWasher® system is properly maintained which means following the operating instructions located in the operations manual, not treating the system like a waste oil dump, and change the OzzyMat® a minimum of every 30 days/once a month you should never have to change or haul away dirty parts cleaning fluid again.
The keys to the performance of the CRC SmartWasher® are the proprietary OzzyMat® and OzzyJuice®. This OzzyMat® contains a special blend of natural occurring, nonpathogenic microbes (we call OzzyMicrobes®) that enable the bioremediation process. OzzyMicrobes are activated when OzzyJuice® flows through the OzzyMat® into the base of the CRC SmartWasher® where they began to multiply, breaking down greases, oils, and other carbon-based contaminants removed from dirty parts. OzzyMicrobes circulate throughout the OzzyJuice® in the system “eating” such contaminants and producing harmless byproducts of carbon dioxide and water – in small quantities. This natural bioremediation process leaves OzzyJuice® clean and strong for repeated use and keeps the CRC SmartWasher® operating at optimum level.
BIOREMEDIATION is technically defined as the accelerated break down of organic compounds through the use of enzymes, bacteria, or fungi, or nature’s way of cleaning up. Bioremediation is a safe, environmentally friendly and responsible way to process many kinds of hazardous waste and is supported by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) as a viable solution for cleanup of oil spills and other contaminants.
THE BIOREMEDIATION PROCESS
- Hydrocarbon-eating microbes, blended with special nutrients and catalysts, are introduced into carbon-based (petroleum), contaminated OzzyJuice® solution. The microbes bond to the petroleum molecules and begin extruding enzymes. These enzymes break down the hydrocarbon structures into more water soluble, digestible materials that are subsequently absorbed through the cell wall and digested further.
- The catalysts, mixed with the microbes, speed up the organisms’ rate of reproduction and digestion. When provided a supportive environment, for example the CRC SmartWasher® system and OzzyJuice® solutions, the bioremediation materials continue to reproduce throughout the contaminated OzzyJuice® solution. This process increases the overall biomass of microbes in an exponential manner until all of the available hydrocarbons are consumed. The end result is that the OzzyJuice® solution, that was previously polluted with petroleum based contaminants, becomes “clean,” with all the majority of hydrocarbons converted to harmless water and carbon dioxide.
The CRC SmartWasher® uses the OzzyMat® to introduce a specially blend of microbes, called Ozzy® Microbes, into the parts washing process. The OzzyMat® is a filter that traps particulate cleaned off dirty parts but, more importantly, it is the support structure and portal for the Ozzy Microbes to enter into the CRC SmartWasher®unit. The Ozzy Microbes are dormant within the structure of the OzzyMat® until it is placed underneath the false sink of the CRC SmartWasher®, and is wetted by the OzzyJuice®, our non-hazardous degreasing solution. Once activated by the OzzyJuice®solution, the Ozzy® Microbes go to work. They form a colony that continuously multiply and thrive and begin circulating within the OzzyJuice® in the CRC SmartWasher®. The Ozzy® Microbes move throughout the solution breaking down or “eating” the grease, oil and other carbon-based products cleaned off the dirty parts. The by-product of this process of bioremediation is harmless carbon dioxide and water as well as OzzyJuice® that is clean and strong and ready to use every time you need to clean a dirty part.
Microbes have been successfully used in petrochemical plants, chemical plants, refineries, food processing plants, marine barges, truck washes, wood treating plants and ground water remediation applications.
The bioremediation process has been used for many years, especially to help clean up large oil spills such as the Gulf Oil (BP) disaster as well as the Deep Water Horizon tragedy.
Our special blend of Ozzy Microbes, working in harmony within the OzzyJuice® solution located inside the CRC SmartWasher®, break down greases, oils, and other carbon based contaminants cleaned off dirty parts.
Ozzy® Microbes are nonpathogenic and are harmless to humans, animals and the environment. They are a highly specialized blend of cultures specifically selected and adapted to degrade a wide range of organic wastes. Ozzy Microbes aggressively attack and break down oil and grease but will not attack other surfaces such as industrial grade metals, natural rubber or textiles.
While the thought of a product being based on live microbes might seem a little strange, it is actually an environmentally sound concept. Microbes are a common occurrence in nature and are constantly around us; they are on your body right now, even though they cannot be seen with the naked eye.
The microbes used in the CRC SmartWasher® are all classified as risk category 2. Organisms in this classification have no recognized hazard potential under ordinary conditions of handling. They are subject to unrestricted distribution by the U.S. Department of Health, Public Health Service and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TOSCA). Organisms receive this classification only after extensive study and review.
Each strain of microbe used in our OzzyMat® is developed with regular integrity checks under ISO conditions. During the manufacturing process, supplier personnel and outside laboratories perform antibiotic screenings and check for contamination. Production, or fermentation, is done under exacting, clean conditions to ensure that only desirable organisms are produced.
The Ozzy Microbes in the CRC SmartWasher® have been proven effective in waste waters containing BOD or COD in excess of 50,000 mg/l. They have been used to achieve consistent effluents with ranging in-fluent, organic levels and improve settle-ability of biological solids, correct low or inconsistent MLVSS numbers, and control foam production from partially degraded organics.
