Polymer activation through proper hydration of the polymer particle is critical in water clarification or sludge dewatering applications. According to Jeff Rhodes, Vice President of Commercial Development for UGSI Solutions, “the key is to have a high energy zone at the moment of initial welding, when the polymer and the water come together.”
There are plenty of bells and whistles at a given water treatment plant. Between pumps, mixers, dry chemical feeders, and other chemical handling equipment, it can be easy to go with the status quo when it comes time to upgrade certain pieces of equipment. For an operation’s chemical metering pumps, this usually meant replacing one unit with its exact replica, instead of facing the often arduous task of researching a better option.
Rangely is a remote town with a population of just over 2,200 people located in the upper northwest area of Colorado, thirteen miles from the Utah border. During the course of their routine maintenance, operators noticed problems with a distribution pump. Read the full project profile to learn how Process Solutions’ trained service technicians were able to walk them through a series of diagnostics to further isolate the problem and get the system was back up and running in a short period of time.
Santa Margarita Water District (SMWD), located in southern California’s Orange County, between Los Angeles and San Diego, provides drinking water and wastewater services to over 165,000 residents and businesses. SMWD approached UGSI Solutions about a PolyBlend® Polymer Activation System trial at their 3 A Water Reclamation Plant.
Now in operation for well over two years in the Malambo, Colombia, the Microclor® system has proven itself in terms of reliability and safety. According to management, the clear, vertically-oriented cells and the system’s open architecture allow for easy inspection and simplify any minor maintenance that might be required.
Like many cities within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, the City of Coppell experienced water quality challenges at different periods throughout the year. In particular, the City had difficulty maintaining adequate chloramine residuals at the 1.5 MG Southwestern elevated storage tank during the warmer summer months when outdoor watering was restricted to conserve water.
Fairmont, Minnesota, known as the City of Lakes, is located in Martin County in southern Minnesota. The city’s water treatment plant serves a mix of customers including approximately 3,900 residential taps, 500 commercial and 17 industrial customers. Looking to the future, Fairmont city leaders began to investigate upgrading the city’s water treatment plant in 2010. The existing plant had been in operation for well over 70 years and relied on gas chlorine for disinfection.
