The Chemtrac SCM2500 Streaming Current Monitor is used to optimize coagulant feed at the City of Hickory North Carolina water treatment plant. The SCM2500 was selected to replace an existing on-line streaming current detector.
The CCA3100 has helped the WTP personnel to optimize their coagulant dosage. Essentially, a jar test can be run in less than 5 minutes. Chemical cost savings, and operator time savings, equals significant $ savings for the municipality.
