New sulFade™ from Helix Labs Neutralizes Threat Hydrogen Sulfide Poses to Communities, Workers and Infrastructure

Share Article

The proprietary chemistry of sulFade breaks down toxic hydrogen sulfide and nuisance mercaptans, yielding harmless effluent.

Hydrogen sulfide is found in fatal concentrations in many lift stations, and it readily converts to pipe-eroding sulfuric acid. sulFade solves both these problems, and also neutralizes odors.

New from Helix Laboratories, sulFade™ molecular neutralizer products counteract hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans and other sulfur compounds. With a single application municipalities can:

  • Addresses a major toxic exposure risk facing municipal workers,
  • Neutralize a primary contributor to infrastructure deterioration, and
  • Mitigates the leading cause of sewer odor complaints.

sulFade is designed to break down sulfur compounds, yielding water and a harmless, inert byproduct that poses no risk to downstream processes or the environment.

“Hydrogen sulfide is found in fatal concentrations in many lift stations, and it readily converts to pipe-eroding sulfuric acid,” says Will Dunn, President of Helix Laboratories. “sulFade solves both these problems, and also neutralizes odors—all without exposing workers and the environment to hazardous chemicals, and without adulterating a sewer’s natural slime layer.”

sulFade comes in bulk containers of varying size for shock dose (Scour) and maintenance (Commander) applications. A complementary product, BioFresh, is designed specifically for odor control in lift stations.

Helix Laboratories offers complete, turn-key solutions optimizing sewer function. These solutions start with a system-wide assessment to identify problem areas, followed by implementation of targeted treatments with ongoing replenishment, assessment and recalibration. By addressing the most serious threats to sewer function, Helix products deliver ROI-positive results that reduce the workload of municipalities while extending infrastructure service life and boosting ratepayer satisfaction.
