Polymer Makedown System

This new system, featuring all stainless steel construction, is designed for preparation, activation and injection of liquid polymers in water and wastewater treatment applications, and can produce dilute solution (0.1–2.0%) at capacities from 20 gph to 3,000 gph of total makedown solution.

This new system, featuring all stainless steel construction, is designed for preparation, activation and injection of liquid polymers in water and wastewater treatment applications, and can produce dilute solution (0.1–2.0%) at capacities from 20 gph to 3,000 gph of total makedown solution. This polymer makedown system uses the patented gatlin mixer for mechanical mixing and blending of polymer material. The gatlin is a motorized mixing chamber that segments the polymer into ultra-thin film for maximum activation, all without use of booster pumps or blades that might damage fragile polymer chains. The company says the system is unique in that it maintains maximum activation regardless of fluctuating flow rate or water pressure. An interlock prevents polymer feed if water flow is insufficient. Standard systems include manual or automatic electronic metering pumps for polymer injection; larger models use motor-driven metering pumps or progressing cavity pumps. Available accessories include a desiccant breather, a calibration column kit and a drum mixer.
