Water Clarification Systems

Water clarification can be a challenge. Settling ponds have long been the accepted method of handling dirty water. But with this method, despite its expense, water quality is not assured and water losses can be significant. Additionally, short- and long-term consequences to the land can be enormous.

Industry standard thickeners and clarifiers produce underflow that has a relatively low solids content. The material that comes from all of these sources can be sloppy and next to impossible to handle! Excavators and drag lines are expensive to operate and maintain, they're slow at bailing out ponds, and they're underutilized (doing the wrong job) when cleaning ponds. Wet impoundment dam failures can occur and can cause extensive damage.

All of these problems can be solved with help of a JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier system.

PRIMARY BENEFITS:

The JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier system is a whole new way of looking at water clarification. It puts an end to settling ponds and provides both a continuous supply of clarified water to assure steady production and thick solids that can be handled, like solids! The JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier System clarifies your water and creates superb solids all in one compact platform. No secondary processing and no ponds! Dirty water goes in one end and clarified water comes out the other. The solids are discharged and can be handled easily with a loader or put on a belt conveyor.

Additionally,  JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier Systems can be set up on a permanent or temporary basis. They can be moved easiily from one site to another to handle all your clarification needs. And with low power consumption, a JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier system can easily be run from a generator as needed.

JADAIRTM  Settler/Clarifier Systems can be used in almost any application requiring the separation of water and solids ranging from 10 to 12,000 gallons per minute or more. Various sizes are avalable to meet any need. Some common applications include aggregate mining and wash plants, sand washing including frac sand, placer gold mining, dimensional stone cutting, concrete manufacturing processes, agricultural processes including sugar cane and sugar beet washing, fly ash recovery, scrubber fines recovery, and foundries.

 

Here's how it works. Water and solids are separated inside the Settler/Clarifier. This separation is enhanced by a proprietary polymer flocculation method. The system is designed to handle a wide range of solids' sizes -- from course to the smallest silts or clays.

Water Clarification Systems for Construction

At this location solids are removed from in front of the machine each morning. The material being moved by this loader was discharged from the JADAIR Settler/Clarifier the day before. How often discharged solids are moved is based on operator preference.

 

Clarified water is then returned to the plant for re-use and thick solids are brought out of the machine and discharged into a containment area (as seen below). The solids containment area in front of each module is typically large enough to handle two or more days' accumulation. Alternatively solids can be discharged onto a belt conveyor and conveyed to a stockpiling area. Some customers also discharge the solids into totes.

The solids themselves are so thick, they can be moved from in front of the machine by a front-end loader (also below) and hauled away in trucks. They are so easy to handle, in fact, that in many areas efforts are made to develop markets for their sale.

Many customers have found markets for their discharged solids so that what once was a waste product becomes a money making product instead! Some possible markets for these solids are for use as landfill cover, for soil remineralization on farms and in forests, and use by landscaping companies in various landscaping applications. The potential benefits to lands and crops have been well documented can be significant! Here's an opportunity for you to sell your byproduct for a profit!

In addition to our Settler/Clarifier Systems JADAIRTM  also provides the polymer preparation and injection systems and chemicals that are critical to water clarification. Polymer causes flocculation of the solids in the water which then makes them settle out. When done correctly, proper polymer selection, preparation, and application result in, clear water, appropriate chemical usage, and good solids quality. When done incorrectly it can result in, poor clarification, high chemical usage, and poor solids condition.

We work directly with multiple polymer manufacturers to find the best polymer for your application. They've told us “You do it right!”. Coming from the people that make the polymers, that means something. Some polymer vendors fail in system design, application or fail to find the polymer that really is the best for the job. Our polymer selection process ensures optimum results and our systems are designed to batch the polymer properly so you get the best polymer reaction and the lowest polymer usage possible.

These systems also come in multiple sizes to meet customer needs. They are included as standard with our JADAIRTM  Settler/Clarifier Systems but can also be used as stand-alone systems. Either way, Jadair polymers and polymer preparation systems provide superior results that are a critical part of your water clarification process.

SECONDARY BENEFITS:

JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier Systems have more to offer. Savings in many different categories add up quickly to help your bottom line. These savings add up day in and day out, all day every day. The best part is that savings go straight to the bottom line. They are not taxed. A big financial plus for any organization! We will get into more details below.

Low water usage. Water usage can be greately reduced with the JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier. Water lost to ground seepage and evaporation can be reduced or eliminated and makeup water requirements are reduced. This allows savings every day. Being water concious pays for itself, but it also pays dividends in other ways. It is part of being environmentally concious and makes a good neighbor. Being environmentally concious also keeps the EPA and the DNR happy!

Low electrical power usage. This benefit comes from an efficient design philosophy used in every aspect of the JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier System. It's power usage is extremely low, especially when compared to other industry solutions.. it's dsigned that way,  The power savings add up for you hour by hour and day to day putting money back in your pocket.

Low maintenace requirements.. JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier systems are built ruggedly. Major mainenace is typically only done every five to ten years. That's right, years. We design, build, and specify components to provide the longest service intervals possible. That keeps your plant running and your maintenece costs down.

Low manpower requirements. The low manpower requirements of the JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier are hard to beat. Customers typically go to the machine once or twice a day for a few minutes and that's it.. The machine pretty much takes care of itself. It's that simple!

What does all this mean? The JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier assures water clarity, is good for the environment, saves money, is an investment in a long-term solution, allows for marketable, easy to handle solids, is profitable, is a true closed-loop system, and dramatically reduces water consumption and labor costs.

Most people love to learn about opportunities where everybody wins. That's exactly what happens when you have a JADAIRTM Settler/Clarifier System at your plant. Conact us now to learn more!

 

 

 

 

 

Clarified Water

 

 

Cody D.

We just wanted to let you know how much we like the JADAIR SETTLER/CLARIFIER we bought from your company.  We don’t have a lot of water so the Clarifier was just what we needed. We have used it every year since we purchased it. The makeup water requirements are extremely low and the water to the wash plant is always clean. We don’t need any draglines or long reach excavators and we aren’t ruining equipment trying to clean out ponds. Your company has been exceptionally helpful whenever we had any questions. We would highly recommend your JADAIR SETTLER/CLARIFIER system to anyone who is interested in saving the environment and washing gravel in a quality way.  If you ever need to show someone the clarifier in action you’re welcome to bring them by. If you ever need a good word said about you let us know.  Thanks again!!
