  • How Can Public Water Utilities Save On Energy Costs?
    How Can Public Water Utilities Save On Energy Costs?

    I think that in this day and age, everyone knows a variety of ways to conserve at least a little bit of energy and save money while doing so. This is true at home, and across any industry. Take for instance the energy consumption across the United States just in the water treatment process. With thousands of water public utilities across the nation, the amount of energy usage is significant enough to make the statistical charts. 

  • Water Vs. Climate Change
    Water Vs. Climate Change

    Recently, the United Nations held a conference in Morocco related to climate change issues. The location of the conference had significant meaning because Africa has become a bellwether for the rest of the world when it comes to climate change. Desertification and rising sea levels both impact countries all over that continent.

Our energy-efficient LumenAER can address a wide range of water quality issues.

Pipeline Flash Reactors for Mixing & Contacting Pipeline Flash Reactors for Mixing & Contacting

Pipeline Flash Reactors™ (PFRs or spool pieces) utilize high velocity mixing to transfer ozone or oxygen-enriched sidestreams into bulk water flow, all within a compact footprint. With a PFR, ozone or oxygen mass transfer occurs in the pipeline within seconds, eliminating the need for additional tanks or basins. Whether it is providing ozone for water purification or increased dissolved oxygen for wastewater, Mazzei’s PFR uniformly distributes gas into the water and minimizes the size and cost of gas contacting.

GDT Mixing & Contacting Systems GDT Mixing & Contacting Systems

The GDT™ Process starts with the creation of ozone from an Ozone Generator. The ozone is then drawn into a Mazzei®Venturi Injector which provides dynamic mixing (a Back Pressure Control Valve adjusts injector outlet pressure optimizing ozone mass transfer in the system). Then mixing and contacting is enhanced in a Flash Reactor™. From there the two-phase flow travels to the Degas Separator (DS) & Relief Valve for additional mixing and entrained gas removal. And finally, the MTM Mixing Nozzles force dissolved ozone flow into the untreated water in the pipeline or basin for thorough mixing.
