With Westfall's Affordable Static Mixers, Engineers Can Deliver Potable Water Even Where Source Waters Have Been Polluted
Water industry infrastructure is in need of repair. Westfall makes affordable high-performance static mixers.
BRISTOL, R.I., June 5, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Westfall is partnering with companies, in the US and overseas, that build top quality potable water and wastewater treatment plants. In the US and in many countries around the world, water infrastructure projects like these are long overdue.
According to EPA surveys, about 40% of rivers and lakes in the US today are too polluted for swimming or fishing. According to Nature.org, “More than 80% of sewage in developing countries is discharged untreated, polluting rivers, lakes and coastal areas.” Water Online newsletter reported in March 2018 that “many drinking water systems in America have not seen improvements or enhancements in more than 100 years.”
Westfall’s contribution is to build affordable and adaptable static mixers for water and wastewater treatment plants.
These high-performance mixers blend chemical coagulants and flocculants with wastewater so suspended solids can easily be removed. The mixers also provide the exact amount of turbulence needed to thoroughly blend in disinfectants like sodium hypochlorite.
Westfall’s mixers provide such a consistent blend that sensors, which control the dosage of these chemicals, can give accurate readings in real time at all flow rates.
Westfall’s Wafer and Pipe Static Mixers help make infrastructure upgrades more affordable, so the budget constraints elected leaders face in the US and worldwide are less daunting. And so that polluted source waters can be turned into fresh potable water now and for many years to come.
