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.

About ih2o

Formed in 2010, the company’s three founders bring together 60 plus years of experience uniquely suited to address the increasingly recognized concern that suspended and dissolved contaminants are adversely affecting the safety, environmental quality and aesthetics of surface waters.

This practical, problem-solving experience comes from four complementary careers – a Professional Engineer and owner of an erosion and sedimentation
control products distributorship; a contractor specializing in the installation and maintenance of erosion and sedimentation control BMPs; a consulting hydrogeologist with 30 years experience in environmental stabilization and remediation projects; a experienced PAM water clarification expert with "real life" practical application success... a solid team to solve difficult water quality problems.

Inter.faceH2O’s current offerings include WaterMatrix™ and Floc Hog™ units - portable treatment equipment that uses environmentally safe flocculation/chelation agents to capture and remove a broad spectrum of contaminants from water. Whether fed by pump discharges or gravity flow, with either continuous or batch treatment requirements.

InterfaceH2O also is the Michigan distributor of Suntree stormwater infrastructure products.

WaterMatrix units use gravity flow-through processes that enable floc/chelate formation and then the separation of the coalesced contaminants from the water by settlement and tertiary capture, if needed. Floc Hog units are PAM introduction systems that are connected inline to your pumps discharge hose. They can be used alone or to enhance the Water Matrix systems
