Ammonia Reducer, 5 gallon pail



Ammonia Reducer NH3 is specially formulated with a proprietary blend of nitrifying microorganisms to provide a consistent seed of both types of nitrifiers for ammonia conversion.

Selected strains of both Nitrosomonas spp. and Nitrobacter spp. are packaged at high concentrations to allow for the rapid reseeding of systems with ammonia issues.


Treatment Plants: Activated Sludge Systems, Trickling Filter and Rotating Biological Contactors, Lagoon Systems and Holding Ponds, Industrial Waste High in Nitrogen Including Farm and Cleaning Wastes
