INDUSTRIAL WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT PRODUCTS

Ozone Injection Components Ozone Injection Components

Ozone has been used for over 65 years to purify water in pools, spas and waterscapes. It purifies water quickly and efficiently—3,000 times faster than chlorine—leaving no by-products except pure oxygen. The result is crystal clear water that feels softer to the skin. In contrast, chlorine leaves a chemical by-product, hypochloric acid, and additional salts in water applications.

Ozone Dissolution Skids Ozone Dissolution Skids

Mazzei injection systems are designed using the company’s patented technologies to obtain the most efficient mixing and contacting of air, oxygen, ozone or chemicals into a water stream.

AquaNereda AquaNereda

The AquaNereda® Aerobic Granular Sludge System is an innovative biological wastewater treatment technology that provides advanced treatment using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. The unique process features of the AquaNereda system translate into a flexible and compact process that offers energy efficiency and significantly lower chemical consumption.

Ecosorb® Spray Gel® Ecosorb® Spray Gel®

A special spray gel formulation of Ecosorb® odor eliminator topically encapsulates material, blocking odors from escaping into the atmosphere. Ecosorb® Spray Gel® is an ideal solution for sludge handling and transportation, open-bed waste trucks, working faces of landfills, soil remediation projects, and other solid/semi-solid odorous materials that continuously emit odors.

CoStrip™: CoStrip™:

Veolia’s patent-pending CoStrip degases raw water by introducing microbubbles of a stripping gas (air, nitrogen or fuel gas) counter-current to the liquid stream. First, the microbubbles are introduced into a series of chambers utilizing eductors. Next, they rise and capture dissolved gases due to the disequilibrium between the microbubble gases and the dissolved gases in the water.

Lime Slaker Systems Lime Slaker Systems

The IMS Lime Slaker Systems provide continuous high volume lime slurries (up to 8,000 lbs/hour) for industrial and municipal process pH adjustment, flocculation, and chemical reaction. The superior paste-type slaking technology consistently produces a higher strength and more reactive lime slurry resulting in more efficient and more economical use of the quicklime. Systems are factory assembled and tested for quick and easy installation, and include options for lime feed and grit removal.
