Comments Off on Floc Hogs Spotted on I-75 in Tampa

The I-75 roadway improvement project in west central Florida saw above average rainfall amounts over several months causing the contractor to increase dewatering and turbidity reduction output.  R.H. Moore of Tampa recomended InterfaceH2O™ and it’s Floc Hog™ inline polymer introduction systems to keep up with the demand.

Floc Hogs are used with exisiting pumps and are placed as a part of the discharge hose. Inside of each Floc Hog is space for 40 lbs of water clarifing anionic polymer and a specilaized framework that creates agitation and mixing for the polymers to start the flocculation process. As the treated water flows through the hose the floculant continues to bind to dirt particles therby cleaning the water.

Based on the volume and turbidity levels required, multiple Floc Hogs were used in the same discharge line with the resulting treated water being either being directly released or processed through a settling tank or dispersion field.

Floc Hogs are easily transportable and include standard camlock fittings to make the connections to the hose. Based on needs, Floc Hogs can be used at each coupling or connected to each other (back to back) to create the required results. Floc Hogs are adaptable, scalable and easy to use with no other special equipment required.

One person can handle each unit and its setup as well as monitor the discharge for compliance. The best part of the system is how easy it is to adjust to get the best performance. Not enough floc at the discharge? Add more hose to the end. Water is not discharging clean enough? Add another Floc Hog inline or setup a dispersion field.

If space is a concern, the Floc Hogs can be stacked horizontially or vertically and take up no more room than the hose itself.

Prince construction treated over 100,000 gallons and was able to continue work on this important roadway project.

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

  • Turbidity Reduction

    Interface H2O was born from the necessity to have a competent, reasonable and reproducible results when dewatering turbid water, especially during construction activities. Seeing the need we created the Water Matrix and Floc Hog Systems to address turbidity reduction on many levels. Water Matrix Systems are the highest flow rate treatment/capture systems available today with…

  • Environmental Remediation

        Interface H2O’ equipment can be used to reduce nutrient loading in water bodies, decrease chlorophyll or even remove heavy metals. The systems we currently use have been part of mercury cleanup’s and hydrocarbon remediation that was spilled in navigable waterways. We can extend beyond ordinary turbidity reduction and provide solutions to meet many…

  • Dewatering

      Similar to turbidity reduction our equipment and services can be used in a variety of dewatering applications that include heavy metals, hydrocarbons, nutrient reduction and general suspended solid reduction. The systems are scalable and can have flow rates that meet your needs. We can treat anywhere from 20 GPM and greater.
