Acrison's advanced Polymair Model 512 Polymer Preparation Module produces a homogeneous solution from dry or liquid polymers at moderate capacities. Dry polymers are accurately metered into a highly effective water/air cyclone wetting chamber where they are completely and thoroughly wetted. Optionally, a metering pump is used to meter liquid polymers into Acrison's Dispersion Injector where they are efficiently blended with water prior to entering the mixing tank. Features include ultrasonic level transmitters, DC and AC variable speed motor controllers, various mixing/aging tanks, and quick-disconnect construction for easy and complete cleanout.
