Fox Slurry Eductors at Water Treatment Plants
Fox Slurry Eductors are widely used in water treatment and waste-water treatment plants to add chemicals. In one of the most common applications throughout municipal water treatment plants, Fox slurry eductors are integrated with a bulk bag unloader and a screw feeder to provide a fully automated activated carbon feed system. The carbon is typically used to adsorb organics to remove contaminants, and unpleasant tastes and/or odors.
The system shown in the photo at right is currently installed at municipal water treatment plant. This plant previously prepared activated carbon slurries using a batch system, manually dumping carbon from sacks into a 300 gallon tank. When they needed to upgrade to a fully automated system that could run with 24/7 reliability, they used a Fox rep to integrate the bulk bag unloader, screw feeder, and slurry eductor into a system that has worked perfectly since its installation.
