Watermiser’s sister company Dustacco Engineering Ltd is a pipework and mechanical installations contractor with in-house welding and fabrication capabilities.
Watermiser works collaboratively with the Dusatacco Engineering design team in the design and manufacture of base-frames, ancillary and supplementary pipework and access structures as required, including:
Depending on the locale or the application, the process water would benefit from filtration to prevent build-up of debris within the tower and associated pipework and pack.
A hydrocyclone filtration unit is designed for sidestream filtration on cooling towers, evaporative condensers and open-circuit systems for removal of suspended solids and sludge. A sidestream flow is drawn from the cooling tower sump and cleaned continuously by the filter before being returned to the sump. Suspended solids which collect in the filter are purged to drain automatically using a timer-controlled auto-purge valve.
Sidestream filtration minimises excessive liquid loss or downtime - because there is no sand media or screen to flush clean or replace. Backwashing and schedule shutdowns are unnecessary.
There are a number of aspects of sidestream filtration which lower the risk of water contamination.
The compact modular system has minimal space requirements and is readily manhandled into position (no site assembly or lifting equipment).
