The project consists in the revamping of a water treatment plant in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, built in the 1970s. The old clarifier uses an obsolete drive unit with a V-belt type variable speed drive. The agitators in the existing tanks were in a dilapidated condition with rust covering all parts in contact with the liquid.
In 2014, two PRO-DO-MIX® technicians visited the plant to assess the situation and establish an action plan to resize all the agitators and upgrade the plant.
Our team carried out a thorough analysis to come up with the best solution. We wanted our design to be tailored to the customer’s needs and lasting in the long term.
PRO-DO-MIX® proposed 4 special vertical agitators model GPX.A5351.Q.285 / PSXBY, with bevel gearboxes for heavy industry applications, frequency inverter (VSD) to adjust the speed from 5 to 10 rpm and 15 kW of installed power. The impeller has a diameter of 3,400 mm. All parts in contact with the liquid are made of SS 304L.
PRO-DO-MIX® and our local distributor, GHADEER TECHNOLOGY FOR TRADING EST., designed, built and followed up the installation until the start up of the new machines.
