FLOCCULANT PREPARATION AND DOSING SYSTEM
The AMP flocculant system allows the control and dosing of the polyelectrolyte (flocculant), which is normally required in the operation of Hi-rate Clarifiers to maintain an effective flocculation in order to achieve a high speed settling during its continuous automatic processing.
The experienced design ensures perfect powder flocculant dilution to the appropriate concentration for further addition to the clarifier at the required dosage according to its flow capacity treatment.
This equipment consists of a tank of sufficient capacity as for the preparation and maturity of the concentrated solution, as well as for the transfer and storage of the final solution, once diluted in the correct proportion.
The system incorporates two electrical-slow speed agitators with shafts and propellers in stainless steel; dosing driven by motor-drive with stainless steel hopper for addition of the flocculant powder; set of valves and ancillaries for equipment control and operation; metering pump mono-type with electronic speed to adjust the required flocculant addition and control cabinet mounted on the unit for automatic polyelectrolyte preparation.
Flocculant consumption can be optimized by the AMP automatic sedimentation control equipment "Conves", which detects the turbidity of the clarified liquid by sending a proportional signal to the frequency converter system to vary the speed of the metering pump. Thus, it is achieved the minimum dosing flocculant consumption, necessary to obtain a liquid of good quality.
