PMPS to launch new water treatment system in South Africa

Packaged Metering & Pumping Solutions (PIMPS) recently made public it’s plans to take-off an Italian OBL Polisol automatic polymer preparation plant designed for treating water and wastewater at treatment plants, the new operation is expected to produce better, higher quality yields of water.

The system is made up  of automatic plants that are engineered for the continuous preparation of dosing of dry polymer

PMPS said the system is mainly used in treatment plants to help the aggregation of small suspended particles to form a floc for filtering or settling out. The company said it also believes that this system will pose several distinct advantages.

O’Neill pointed out that one of the main differentiating factors between the Polisol system and others is the initial point at which the dry polymer is wetted. PMPS said standard units with either two or three compartments will be able to provide between 450 and 10,000 litres per hour outputs per day of 0.5% polymer solutions.

The company also said the system has been around for more than three decades, and has evolved in line with advancements in technology.

Should the system be received well with the local market, O’Neill said the company would consider local manufacturing which he believes will have a “knock-on effect in terms of employment creation and skills training”.

For now, he said the company has a trained and highly qualified team of service technicians and engineering staff ready to offer customers support and expertise on the system at short notice.

O’Neill added that the company currently has the capability to provide a skid system which includes dosing pumps, flow meters and valves, to render the system fully functional as a standalone plant.
