A city contacted Clean Waters to help optimize their belt presses. They felt that they were using a large amount of polymer and not getting good performance from their belt presses. They also had to constantly adjust flow rates and polymer dose throughout the day, tying up an operator who could be doing other things.
Clean Waters performed an extensive bench scale test to determine the correct products to try. 2 different polymers were selected to run full scale. The full scale test was a great success, with 25% decrease in polymer dose and 2% dryer cake. The municipality is now using our polymer continuously, and reports that the operator no longer needs to constantly monitor the belt press. They estimate that between reduced polymer consumption and dryer cake they save approximately $10,000/year.
The Charge-Pack line of polymers are the highest quality flocculants available on the market. Give them a try and you’ll be convinced.
