What Makes Orb-3 Enzymes Different?
Orb-3 Enzyme Technology is derived from a proprietary fermentation process. This base raw material contains thousands of identifiable enzymes, co-enzymes, amino acids and other proteins. Our goal through this procedure is to pull as many of these available proteins out of the process as possible because this makes our enzyme technology effective on a wider variety of effluent types and in numerous applications.
Whether used in grease traps, for cleaning floors, for natural algae control in lakes or in a waste stream, or even when it is used to improve sanitizer efficiency in a swimming pool or spa; what makes our products effective is their ability to work efficiently and successfully on a broad range of organic constituents. Furthermore, by carefully selecting and utilizing high quality non-bacterial raw materials, we derive a product that is immediately active in all of these applications and is proven to dramatically speed up the natural bio-degradation process.
Virtually every one of our competitors derives their products from the fermentation of bacteria. In order to remain stable in a finished commercial product, these bacteria are manufactured in a spore form. No matter the application, if the environmental conditions are favorable, spores require a minimum of 2 to 4 hours to germinate or become active. With limited holding time in a grease trap, for example, the bacteria may be washed down the drain well before they can effectively work on the grease in the trap.
Bacteria-based products tend to be very “select” in nature, generally containing only five to seven strains of bacteria. As a result, bacteria become more limited in their function and are not nearly as efficient on the broader range of contaminants that may be present. This may cause an incomplete organic breakdown.
This is not the case with our enzyme technology because the proprietary fermentation process yields a broad spectrum of available enzymes that are ready to go to work immediately.
Orb-3 Enzyme Technology is active in a much wider pH range than other bacterial products. Whereas bacteria are most efficient in a range of 5 to 7, our products are active in a pH range of 3 to 12. In applications such as car wash, wastewater, pools, or grease traps pH ranges tend to vary but our products provide consistent long term results.
