As the waters recede from recent weather events in the southern part of the nation, drinking water becomes even more critical. One of the first supplies delivered to hard hit areas is bottled water, and residents are urged to avoid tap water until further notice. Clean drinking water is critical to the area’s recovery, and the threats loom large.
Both drinking and fishing waters can be contaminated from runoff due to inadequately contained stacks. A whopping 15 – 20 inches of rain opens up new pathways into the environment and new forms of potential damage. The weather just highlights how critical sewage treatment and water treatment facilities are to our communities. Here are some ways that Komax offers top-notch services for these types of productions.
Komax products, such as the Static Sludge Mixer, offers non-plugging, non-fouling and very low pressure drop capabilities in order to mix polymer solutions into sludge flows effectively. It is so effective, in fact, that clients report polymer savings in excess of 25%. The mixing action is not sensitive to the variations in incoming flow; there are no downstream clear or free flow lengths required to complete the mixing, making the process both space saving and highly efficient. Fouling and clogging are eliminated through the innovative design of the product, saving precious downtime as well as handling difficult sludge streams.
Digester heating with a KomaxKlean-Wall heat exchanger offers a 300% efficiency increase over standard slurry heaters (tube and shell exchangers). This equipment also increases bacteriological activity, which in turn, improves the digestion process, and retention time is reduced by as much as 50%. Whether municipalities are looking for a wastewater heat exchanger, a sludge-to-water heat exchanger or even sludge-to-sludge heat exchanger, this product’s performance breaks up and mixes the sludge and offers so much more in terms of capacity.
