DRINKING WATER PRODUCTS

Xylem’s Leopold Oxelia™ for Drinking Water Applications Xylem’s Leopold Oxelia™ for Drinking Water Applications

Biological and chemical contamination in drinking water poses a significant public health risk and plant operators require a treatment system that allows them to produce a safe and reliable supply of clear, good-tasting and biologically-stable finished water with the lowest concentrations of non-desired substances.

Electrocoagulation Technology Electrocoagulation Technology

Electrocoagulation is an electro-chemical process that simultaneously removes heavy metals, suspended solids, emulsified organics and many other contaminants from water using electricity instead of expensive chemical reagents. The process uses electricity and sacrificial plates to combine with contaminants in a waste stream, producing insoluble oxides and hydroxides - floc - that are easily separated from the clear water.

ClorTec® On-Site Sodium Hypochlorite Generation Systems T Series ClorTec® On-Site Sodium Hypochlorite Generation Systems T Series

ClorTec T systems easily control sodium hypochlorite production and provide a powerful disinfection method for any application. T systems meet requirements for 2 to 36 lb/day (0.9 to 16 kg/day) chlorine equivalent. Applications include potable water, wastewater, odor and corrosion control, cooling towers, oxidation and swimming pool disinfection.

HYDROVEX® Bending Weir HYDROVEX® Bending Weir

All combined sewer systems have overflow points to an outfall. When a defined water level is exceeded in the system, the surplus water is diverted to avoid overloading of the sewer line and the WWTP. Most overflow points are equipped with fixed static weirs. The maximum allowable water height used to set the weir level is defined by the acceptable upstream backflow in the sewer line with a given design flow and weir length. The height of the overflow weir is of paramount importance as it directly affects the sewer retention calculation. In an attempt to maximize in-line retention volume, long static weirs and correspondingly large overflow structures are required.

Submersible Mixed Flow Column Pump Type ABS AFLX PE4 To PE6 Submersible Mixed Flow Column Pump Type ABS AFLX PE4 To PE6

Submersible mixed flow column pump type ABS AFLX series are used everywhere where large volumes of process water or wastewater containing solid effluent must be pumped up to approx. 25 m (82ft).

    Since the EPA has established that, together with free chlorine, monochloramine is a primary disinfectant, it has been possible to implement the process more intensively. Water that is treated with monochloramine has, depending on the source of the water, fewer problems concerning taste and odor than water treated with free chlorine. In addition, the chemically more stable monochloramine remains longer in the water, thus allowing a long-term disinfecting effect.
