Customer

 

J. P. Messerly Water Pollution Control Plant, Augusta, Georgia.  

 

Application

 

Struvite scale buildup.

 

Installed Unit

 

HydroFLOW Industrial 160i.

 

Background

 

The primary objective of this independent, third-party technology verification is to validate the effectiveness of the HydroFLOW I Range product with respect to controlling struvite scaling at selected test sites. The verification is based on a review of visual observations and discussion with plant staff. It focuses on identifying changes to struvite scaling before and after installing HydroFLOW units. 

 

Conclusion

 

Following the installation of HydroFLOW and discontinuation of anti-scalant, existing scale became soft and was easily removed by spraying with high pressure water. The observations of the plant operating staff at the WPCP are consistent with findings at other facilities where HydroFLOW has been tested. 

 

The most significant finding with respect to site-specific performance is that HydroFLOW allowed the WPCP to eliminate the use of anti-scalant chemical and realize significant cost savings of approximately $4,000 per month.
