Tablet disinfection

Hammonds has introduced a new off-the-shelf tablet disinfection system that offers a "plug and play" design that does not require custom engineering. The system uses magnetic stir bar and motor to create a vortex in a small water chamber. The vortex creates positive and negative pressures allowing for recirculation of the solution, making it possible to vary solution strength without changing the flow through the system. The system uses PPG's three-inch calcium hypochlorite tablets to produce a consistent solution that can be injected at controlled rates into a water supply.

Water treatment book

The American Water Works Association has published the second edition of "Integrated Design and Operation of Water Treatment Facilities." The book covers the entire project sequence from preliminary planning studies to plant startup. It describes basic design criteria and shows how to design each process to maximize overall efficiency while minimizing operation and maintenance costs. The book was written specifically for professional engineers and college students who seek emphasis on the practical rather than the theoretical.
