Primary Flocculation in Drinking Water Treatment Plant: Very Delicate Flocs
This is PRO-DO-MIX’s mixer model GCR.15202.Q.440, installed in a 65 m3 concrete tank.
The impeller diameter is 2000 mm, and the speed of the mixer can be changed through a manual variator 5 to 20 rpm. The motor power is 1.5 kW.
For a correct flocculation, important conditions to be respected are:
- To prevent the floc breakup and therefore to use a profiled impeller able to create high flow rate without creating turbulence.
- A peripheral speed not exceeding 1.5 m/s (our impeller may reach 2 m/s in flocculation without breaking the flocs).
- The suspension of flocs must be bottom-up, to allow the growth of the flocs within the liquid mass.
