GDTG Degas Separator Selected As Best Method For Entrained Gas Bubbles Removal - Wichita, KS_PIX

In the 1990s, the City of Wichita, KS, developed a water supply plan that included creating a sustainable water supply through the year 2050. The key component of the plan is recharging the large aquifer that lies under the region with 100 MGD of water from the Little Arkansas River.

As planners designed phase II of the project they studied several treatment options to remove the herbicide, selecting an advanced oxidation process (AOP), which utilized a multi-point application of ozone and hydrogen peroxide to create hydroxyl radicals, short lived, highly oxidizing molecules that rapidly mineralize organic contaminants to their non-toxic elements.

Read the full case study to learn how Mazzei developed a prototype degas separator  that was shorter than the standard separator and had extensive internal modifications which allowed the separator to remove entrained gas bubbles at a substantially lower pressure loss than existing degas separators.
