WASTE WATER TREATMENT

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

  • Size: -40 mesh (fine powder)

  • Weight: 55 pounds per cubic foot 
     

APPLICATIONS

Minus 40 mesh BRZ™ is an advanced, surface water turbidity and silt sorption and flocculation product developed for municipal drinking water plants and industrial pumping stations. Auger or slurry fed, product doses of 2-3lb/1000 gal of surface water is used (higher turbidity water requires higher doses). The sorbed/flocculated solids are granular (1.2-1.4 Sp. Gravity, w/water = 1.00); readily settle; and easily dewaters.
 

USES

  • Drinking water-Alum & polymer flocculation chemistry replacement.

  • Turbidity, silt, algae (bio-particle) & TOCs removal from surface water.

  •  Enhances clarification performance; decreases filter bed solids loading.
     

BENEFITS

  • BETTER SOLID/LIQUID SEPARATION THAN ALUM AND POLYMER: The specific gravity of the alum/polymer floccules is 1.03 and this results in many “pin flocs” that do not settle. The specific gravity of the BRZ™/iron compound system is 1.4 and this results in a clean solid/liquid separation and interface giving better clarity.
     

  • BRZ™ SYSTEM REAGENT NOT BULKY: The alum/polymer reagent is bulky and hard to handle compared to the BRZ™ system.
     

  • SPENT BRZ™ REAGENT CAN BE LAND APPLIED: The spent alum/polymer reagent must be taken to a licensed land fill.
     

  • LOWER COST WITH BRZ™: Although the reagent cost of the BRZ™ systems is about 10% higher than the alum/polymer system the overall cost is much less due to easier dewatering and the lower solids management cost.
     

  • BETTER REMOVAL OF HEAVY METALS, CERTAIN HYDROCARBONS, CHLORAMINES, AND AMMONIUM.
