Turbo LME Process for Water Treatment Plants


The Challenge

Providing clean water to people

Motivation of effective clarification:

  • In the treatment of surface water, the effectiveness of the first clarification process is decisive for a cost- and resource-efficient water treatment plant.
  • Effective clarification ensures both a high degree of operational safety in downstream treatment steps and hygienically perfect drinking water quality.
  • The clarification shall also be cost-effective with regards to the consumption of chemicals and the required construction volume.

CNP’s Solution

Compact, precisely adjusted and integrated process for clarification

The Turbo LME process:

  • A multiple chamber coagulation and contact sludge flocculation stage is ideal for effective destabilization and uniform floc formation
  • Each coagulation/flocculation stage is perfectly designed with respect
    to the specific physico-chemical process and hydraulic requirements
  • The uniform floc formation is followed by an integrated floc separation
    with lamella sedimentation and settled sludge thickening
  • The lamella system is the only available inclined plate separation system,
    that ensures a hydraulically controlled overflow over the entire settling surface
  • Wide range of applications in municipal and industrial water treatment,
    e.g. clarification, softening, precipitation, primary and tertiary wastewater treatment

Benefits

Turbo LME Process

  • Particularly suitable for efficient high suspended solids removal in order to get high-level and stable water quality
  • Very compact design due to short residence times in coagulation/flocculation
    and high specific settling area (>10 m³/m²)
  • Minimized chemical consumption for coagulant/precipitant,
    lime milk and flocculant.
  • Adjustable weirs at lamella overflow ensure uniform up-flow and
    steady floc separation without ballast additives.
  • Each single plate is easily removable without interruption in operation
  • Suspended solids and turbidity removal of 3-4 logarithm scales resulting
    in a clarified water quality of less than 1 NTU turbidity.
  • In case of downstream sand filtration: extended filtration cycles and less backwash water losses.
  • In case of downstream ultra filtration: less fouling and higher filtrate yield.
