Dry Chemical Feeders: DFC Series

DFC Series of Continuous Polymer Make down systems is the complete answer to dry polymer make down with neat liquid feed backup. A completely aged and activated solution can be prepared with either a DRY or NEAT LIQUID polymer source. The system is designed to run unattended between bulk fillings of the hopper. The liquid polymer backup can also be used to feed a biocide or anti-foaming agent into the polymer makedown process.Polymer Make Down Equipment

The system is setup with a medium to high concentration of polymer. This allows a greater holdup of aging product, resulting in a floor space savings since less water is stored. Even on cold water, the DFC works very, very well.

The process starts by metering a precise amount of powdered DRY or NEAT liquid product into the high velocity water layer of the primary wetting stage. The solution is then positively circulated through directed pathways and orifice plates using 3 to 5 separate mixing chambers.

The use of powerful low-shear mixers and the reduction of the mixing action imposed during each stage allows the DFC Feeder to achieve maximum product activation without damage to the polymer chains.

The final stage accurately meters water into the final storage chamber (Secondary Dilution Tank) with a gentle mixing action to prepare the final solution to the dilution best suited to the process. 

In addition, the DFC Series feeders can make down CLAY, CMC or SALT solutions.

Dry Chemical Feeders: DF SeriesPolymer Make Down Equipment

The DF Series is a selfcontained, fully automatic dry polymer batch makedown system. Complete with large capacity bulk product storage, the system is designed to run unattended between bulk fillings of the hopper.

The system meters a precise amount of solid powdered product into the high velocity water layer of the Turbo-Cone® dispersion wetting cone then through a high velocity eductor eliminating any possibility of dusting.

The solution is then positively circulated through a fixed-orifice diffuser by a high velocity mixer to achieve 100% product dispersion. A gentle low shear high flow agitator provides age tank movement for the duration of each batch to allow activation over a precise age time without damage to the polymer chains.

The last two stages are both operator controlled on, off and total time cycle via the touchscreen user interface allowing the operator to select a very precise amount of high and low energy aging to optimize age time without sacrificing product efficiency due to over-shearing.

Liquid Polymer Feeders: LF Series

Polymer Make Down Equipment

The LF Series of continuous polymer systems are the complete answer to neat liquid polymer makedown.

The process is setup with a high concentration of polymer allowing a greater holdup of aging product, resulting in a floor space savings since less water is stored.

The systems are designed to run unattended between fillings of the polymer tote.

Lower polymer concentrations are also possible.

The high velocity water layer of the primary wetting stage combined with the rapid recirculation of a tight loop to ensure a high mixing energy zone for a very short duration.

The polymer then quickly leaves the system to achieve maximum product activation without damage to the polymer chains. Hard to mix polymer? NO PROBLEM, just add the upgraded pump for a greater mixing action.

Note *The DFC Series of Continuous Polymer Make down systems also makes down liquid polymer as well as its original intended function of dry polymer.  Whether it is a liquid polymer backup to dry or to provide liquid polymer makedown and aging tanks all in one convenient system, the DFC Series is always a great choice.

Dry Polymer Makedown System

In an effort to optimize Polymer preparation along with a key understanding of polymer chemistry, Aquafy Water Technologies Inc. has partnered with IKA® Works, Inc. to offer the latest innovation in dry polymer makedown technology. Aquafy offers a complete turnkey polymer makedown system consisting of a disperser (polymer wetting system), powder feeder, powder handling, low shear mixing, and instrumentation all controlled by a master PLC based control panel.

Polymer makedown equipment manufacturers offer conventional wetting/mixing technologies in an effort to minimize one time capital costs. Available equipment simply prepares dilute polymer solutions with little thought placed on polymer hydration optimization and efficiencies and subsequent operating costs. At Aquafy, we feel this is a tremendous disservice to the customer and results in unnecessary costs.

Emulsion Polymer Makedown System

With over 15 years of design and practical hands-on experience, Aquafy can offer innovative solutions for your polymer system project. The emulsion polymer makedown equipment is designed to efficiently prepare polymer solution with no polymer wastage. Enhanced process performance, reduced water and energy demand, and minimal chemical consumption are the direct benefits.

The Aquafy emulsion polymer system uses a high shear dispersion chamber to effectively disperse the emulsion polymer into the dilution water. Completely independent of the dilution water flow rate, the high shear mixing energy is imparted onto the polymer particles at the moment of initial wetting thereby preventing the formation of agglomerations and "fish-eyes". By accomplishing efficient dispersion whereby the polymer particles are each surrounded by a layer of water, the hydration time is considerably shortened. The polymer particles are only exposed to the high shear energy for a very short period of time and only while in the "coiled" state. When the polymer molecules are uncoiling, exposing their charge sites, they are no longer in the presence of the high shear energy. The polymer makedown unit achieves approximately 80% of full polymer hydration.
