Dry Polymer Systems “You get what you pay for”

Remember this when buying a dry polymer system! 

“You get what you pay for”

Not all dry polymer systems are equal; over the years we have seen and heard from polymer equipment suppliers making claims and promises of their systems performance and unique wetting capabilities that are in fact, “overstated”. There are certain parameters that must be addressed before the selection of a dry polymer system is determined. Water temperature and quality (hardness & alkalinity) have a ...

Pumping sludge and slurry

Pumping Sludge & Slurry

A sludge pump must be very resistant to abrasion. Wear at the wetted parts can occur from the solid content in the fluid. Sludge and slurry are often pumped below the pump unit itself. Good priming capabilities are therefore very important for a sludge pump.

Example applications of pumping slurry-like fluids are anaerobic-treated sludge and raw sludge. Each slurry type varies in its solid content and viscosity has their own physical appearance. Anaerobic sludge has a lower temperature then raw sludge. ...

wastewater peristaltic pump

Peristaltic pump technology replaces submersible pump

Verder Inc., the United States partner of Verderflex peristaltic pumps, were able to use their expertise to overcome persistent problems at a North Carolina water and wastewater treatment plant.

Often overlooked, the reliable peristaltic pump has again proved its worth at Coddle Creek Water Treatment Plant, eliminating the mixed results of a few years previously experienced using a submersible pump dosing Powder Activated Carbon (PAC) from a wet well. After more than three submersible ...

Water Softening Hose Pump

Peristaltic pump replacement improves Swiss airport’s water treatment system

Verderflex, a manufacturer of peristaltic hose and tube pumps, recently provided a cost-effective solution to a Swiss airport that had been experiencing significant problems with its water softening treatment. The local water supply required treatment to prevent scaling in the pipework.

The Challenge

The existing treatment system required a salt solution to be dosed from a storage tank close to the pumps over a 350-m pipe-run to the water supply. The piping system had a series of valves and ...

Custom Packaged Water Treatment System

Self-contained Custom Packaged Water Treatment System

KGO Group Ltd., provides a unique self-contained Custom Packaged Water Treatment System for SNF Canada.

This 53’ vessel was built for a remote Mining location in Northern Quebec; it is being used to treat a waste pond, feeding dry polymer and a basic coagulant for a flow rate of 20,000 l/m (5000 gpm). KGO Group was contracted by SNF Canada to design and build the complete structure.

The unit was built to withstand extreme weather conditions, we insulated for – 40 ...
