Solvay selects Neptune Benson's filtration technology for industrial water polishing
In an effort to polish treated river water out of an existing clarifier/thickener, Solvay selected the H2F Vortisand Cross-Flow Microsand Submicron Filtration System from Neptune Benson as a viable solution.
COVENTRY, RI, June 2, 2015 -- In an effort to polish treated river water out of an existing clarifier/thickener, Solvay, an international chemical group, selected the H2F Vortisand® Cross-Flow Microsand Submicron Filtration System from Neptune Benson, a supplier of engineered products serving the aquatics, industrial and municipal markets, as a viable solution.
The goal of Solvay's filtration challenge was to reduce total suspended solids in order for the water to be used for manufacturing processes. Likewise, Neptune Benson was invited to bid on the project, along with other major players in the industry, and technologies were compared on filtration efficiency, required footprint and capital cost.
Neptune Benson proposed four H2F-600 filters to meet the filtration needs of the plant under varying operating conditions. The filters serve as high-capacity, high-flow automatic backwashable media filters that combine cross-flow dynamics with microsand media to achieve submicron filtration at fast speeds. The flexibility and modular design of the H2F eliminated the need for a clear well for backwash purposes, resulting in less capital investment and reducing water consumption.
Due to tight space requirements, the design and engineering team decided that an inline configuration within a 40-foot, custom-designed container would be an ideal solution to house the equipment. The units will be fully pre-assembled, minimizing the installation cost and eliminating the need for an expensive new building.
Since 1956, Neptune-Benson has been synonymous with water filtration and disinfection serving the aquatics, industrial and municipal markets. Featuring award-winning brands such as the Defender® regenerative media filter, ETS-UV ultraviolet disinfection systems and Neptune-Benson Sand Filters. With advanced technology and a wealth of experience, the company has the expertise to provide effective and cost efficient solutions for a broad range of industry needs.
