System to improve water purification
TecnoConverting, company water treatment sector, in collaboration with the CTM Technology Centre has developed a technology which can improve water treatment systems and water treatment, especially in the secondary settling stage.
The company said the technology called TecnoTec, using the numerical simulation by finite element method to calculate and validate the design of systems with lamellar settling.
“Through computational fluid dynamics calculation with commercial programs, we have determined the distribution of water flow and speed, the presence and location of turbulence and re-circulation zones, identifying areas where sedimentation will be based on the type flake and suspended particles, predicted in the lamellar seals, etc. With this strategy, we evaluate the efficiency of the preliminary design of settling these systems, “say the makers.
These systems are aimed at settling accelerate the sedimentation of suspended solids (e.g. clays) that carries water and harming further processing, say spokesmen. “Your application can be aimed at treatment stations for drinking water (ETAP) systems, industrial water treatment, tobacco, sedimentation systems, secondary clarifiers or circular, among others.”
With new technology, they say, companies need to install the lamellar decanters in their buildings (such as sewage treatment plants), they can check beforehand whether they have made the design is optimized using a numerical simulation in conjunction with the application of theoretical formulation and empirical experimentation. Thus, validation is performed the design, while making suggestions for improvement, in order to increase efficiency and avoid future changes or repairs later explain these sources.
According to project managers, this application has a special relevance for the proper design of water treatment stations for drinking and even secondary decanters and circular clarifiers have been small and that instead of replacing them with larger is chosen by the incorporation of these decanters to make them more efficient.
