Floc Hog Goes To Spain
Urgarbi Services in Spain recently purchased two Floc Hogs for a project involving very heavy sedimentation in the water from
rain events. The site is under construction and in an environmentally sensitive area. The turbidity is caused by a high clay content complicated by water hardness of 400 and above.
Niall Tynan with Urgarbi had several issues to address in order for the project to be a success. First the clay content in the water was close to 600 NTUi and did not settle out at all. Second was the water hardness which can cause the polymers to “blind off” reducing the effectiveness. Third was limited space and he had to work within a relatively small footprint.
Working through Applied Polymers in Georgia, Niall was able to find the right polymer blend to meet his needs, through this contact he found Interfaceh2o which provided support, consultation and the Floc Hogs to his company.
Niall reports that the Floc Hogs with the dispersion field are working very well and he is achieving his goal of reducing the turbidity while the work continues. The last reading was 15 NTUi down from 515.
Niall did an excellent
job of getting the correct information,equipment and put it in action to be a success.
