Easy spray application allows incredible coverage rates and consistency.

After TakeOFF 2000 is used there is no need to neutralize the surface. Due to the fact that TakeOFF 2000 is pH neutral there is no recoating failures. This saves both time and money compared to acid or caustic strippers. Takeoff 2000 will no raise the grain or fur wood surfaces, as strippers containing water will. Wood that is in good condition is ready to recoat right after stripping.

Amazing Microbes!!!

Bacterial Digestion of Waste 

The all natural clean-up!

P.B.I.'s bacterial digestant products contain three necessary components:

1. Bacteria Cultures
Essential Nutrients

These three components work in harmony to digest organic waste quickly and efficiently, with no odours or noxious gas.

With minor variation, this same process digests waste in:

Grease traps, drains & plumbing, and septic systems, hog, cattle, chicken manure pits, leaf and grass mulch, municipal sewer treatment operations, including digesters, oxidation tanks, trickling filters and ponds. Also industrial wastewater, food processing wastes and other waste disposal systems.

PBI offers a wide variety of microbes to suit your application.

1. Bacteria Cultures

What is bacterial digestion?

Bacterial digestion is the process of bacteria consuming organic matter. The bacteria feed on the organic waste, deriving nutrition for growth and reproduction. Using complex chemical reactions, the organic waste is metabolized down to water and carbon dioxide (the final metabolic waste products), providing the bacteria with energy to sustain their life. It may be simply shown by the following simple chemical equation:

Organic Waste + Oxygen .........bacteria.........Water + Carbon Dioxide

Organic waste is consumed by the bacteria, used as nutrients by the bacteria, and is no longer present to produce clogs, odours, sludge, pollution, or unsightly mess.

For waste digestion, we can identify several beneficial characteristics that we want our chosen bacteria to have. The "good" bacteria that we will choose must:

  1. Consume (digest) a wide variety of organic materials that are present in wastes.
  2. Digest waste quickly and completely, without producing significant odours or noxious gas.

  3. No cause any disease in man or animals - they must be non-pathogenic
  4. Grow and reproduce quickly and readily in the environmental conditions found in waste disposal systems.

The proper environment needed for rapid growth and reproduction of these good bacteria must have these specific characteristics.

2. Enzymes

What is an enzyme, and how does it aid digestion? An enzyme is a chemical catalyst that breaks up long, complex waste molecules into smaller pieces, which can then be digested directly by the bacteria.

  • Lipase breaks down fats and greases
  • Protease breaks down proteins
  • Cellulase breaks down cellulose
  • Amylase breaks down carbohydrates and starches

Enzymes are specific, so that one type of enzyme can work on only one type of molecule.

3. Essential Nutrients

Special nutrients are added to supply the vitamins and minerals required for the fastest growth and greatest activity of the bacteria. These vitamins and minerals may not be present in the waste digesting performance. They must be added to the digestant product to assure the fastest, most efficient digestant action.
