Traditionally, technologies to promote flocculation
(see What is Flocculation?) are
used to improve the filtering of sediment or suspended particles by
employing chemical flocculants, however AquaKLEAR with Hydropath
Technology changes all this.
AquaKLEAR is able to provide a continuous flocculation effect by
charging suspended particles and causing them to clump into floc
without the need for these expensive chemicals.
AquaKLEAR helps clients reduce backwash time
on any facility equipment where
filtering is used. The improved flocculation effect is actually
factor relating to many of the other sub-benefits being achieved by
AquaKLEAR-P units, including reduced backwash times. When the
flocculated materials are filtered out, they remain on the top of the
sand bed rather than deeply imbedding into the filter media as fines.
Because the materials floc into bead structures, the water passes freely
around it and keeps back pressure from increasing for longer durations.
During a backwash, the flocculated material being on the top of the
filter media, is easily washed away in a shorter duration of time.
This means less wasted water, less water to reheat, and less water to
treat. These factors provide significant savings.
Creates a powerful and continuous
provides less frequent maintenance cycles and reduces back-washing
time by keeping sediment material closer to the top of the filter.
Bio-matter which does not imbed as deeply into
the filter is less likely to produce formation of bacteria and the
resulting harmful chemical compounds created by bacteria interaction
Shorter back-wash cycles means less make-up water to
replenish and reheat, and
thereby reduces the energy consumption used to reheat the make-up water.
