    SC Water Treatment Plant Overcomes Challenges due to Epic Flood

    In October, 2015, the city of Columbia, SC received about 24 inches of rain in 48 hours. Severe flooding occurred. The storm had an impact on the Broad River, and subsequently created challenges for a local water treatment plant. The Canal WTP utilized their charge measurement instrumentation to direct them on how to treat the water from such unprecedented conditions. The Chemtrac Streaming Current Monitor, and the Chemtrac Laboratory Charge Analyzer (LCA) were extremely valuable and useful tools that helped the plant personnel continue to provide potable water to the citizens of the metropolitan area.

    Come See us at WEFTEC (Booths 1841 & 1844)

    Come See us at WEFTEC (Booths 1841 & 1844)

    Chemtrac is in Chicago this week exhibiting at WEFTEC along with a few sister companies: NEFCO, Mass Transfer Systems, LEEM Filtration, Mer-Made Filter, and Sanborn Technologies. We are all owned by our parent company, North American Filtration, and we are sharing one 20’ x 50’ booth.

    Many of our products are on display, including: Streaming Current, Lab Charge Analyzer, and Particle Counters, as well as our HydroACT analyzers with a variety of sensors.

    So if you are attending WEFTEC, please come by to see us.

    The water treatment plant in King, NC has a source water that is quite a challenge to treat. The Yadkin River can experience quick and substantial changes in turbidity (NTU) and organics (TOC). Subsequently the required chemical feed dosages can be significantly impacted in a short period of time.

    Looking for the appropriate technology to help optimize their coagulation, settling, and filtration process, allowing them to produce the best water for their customers, they turned to two products from Chemtrac: the Laboratory Charge Analyzer (LCA), and the online Streaming Current Charge Analyzer (HydroACT Analyzer, and the DuraTrac 4 Streaming Current Sensor).

    In addition to this featured video, an automatic coagulant dose-titration demo of the LCA can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdVVoIOWFUg.

    Chemtrac to Exhibit at IWC in San Antonio

    Chemtrac to Exhibit at IWC in San Antonio

    The 77th Annual International Water Conference will be held November 6-9 in San Antonio, TX. The IWC remains the premier source of technical information and training in the industrial water and wastewater business, spanning numerous industrial sectors, and addressing today’s most relevant technical topics. Chemtrac will once again be hosting a booth in the IWC Exhibit Hall.

    Chemtrac will have several of their latest analyzers on display. Stop by to see a demonstration of the PC4400 Particle Counter that is commonly used for corrosion product transport monitoring in the steam generation cycle. It is also utilized for optimizing filtration processes…especially in pre-RO applications.

    They will also be featuring the Laboratory Charge Analyzer. The LCA can perform automatic charge neutralization titrations in order to determine the ideal coagulant dose that is needed for optimum coagulation. Experience the “5-minute Jar Test” and how simple this bench-top tool is to operate, and how helpful it can be to running a water plant.

    And the next generation design of the HydroACT Analyzer will be on-hand. This analyzer/controller is capable of monitoring a variety of critical water treatment parameters, such as chlorine, ozone, pH, dissolved oxygen, organics, and much more.

    So make it a point to get to the IWC, and personally see some of the new and exciting instrumentation that Chemtrac has to offer.

    Another Successful Showcase at ACE 2016

    Another Successful Showcase at ACE 2016

    The Chemtrac team joined attendees at ACE 2016 in Chicago, IL to discuss the latest models of Streaming Current Monitors, Particle Counters, Chlorine Analyzers, and HydroACT multi-parameter analyzer. The Laboratory Charge Analyzer, a bench-top streaming current unit, was the featured product.

    As mentioned previously, the LCA builds on the success and solid performance of its predecessor models (CCA3100, ECA2100 and ECAT2100), allowing for charge neutralization titrations to accurately determine target coagulant dosages for surface water treatment. Essentially, the LCA provides a way for conducting jar tests in less than five minutes, as opposed to the traditional methods that can take in excess of an hour to run.

    Attendees were also able to learn about the new features of the recently released HydroACT controller/analyzer. This new model offers an innovative design, a high-resolution display, a user-friendly interface, and data storage and trend-graphing capabilities. The standard model will provide for two sensor inputs, with the ability to expand to eight sensors, for monitoring: streaming current, particle counts, chlorine, UV254 organics, pH, ORP, ozone, DO, conductivity, and more.

    This years conference was well attended with the Chemtrac staff feeling good about the responses it received from those that stopped by booth #1040.

    Thanks to all that were able to make it out.

    Cleaning the Chemtrac DuraTrac 3 Sensor Probe and Piston

    Cleaning the Chemtrac DuraTrac 3 Sensor Probe and Piston

    Periodically the Streaming Current Sensor will become less responsive, and when this happens, the probe and piston should be cleaned. The cleaning alone can restore the sensor back to where it is once again delivering expected performance results. The frequency of cleaning will vary from site to site,
