Water and Wastewater Treatment Equipment

SPX FLOW has developed a number of the Water and Wastewater mixing standards over 100 years of industry experience. Modernly SPX FLOW brands Lightnin and Plenty are on the cutting edge of water and wastewater treatment impeller design. The Rochester, NY based mixing lab, features a 50 square-foot water basin for detailed testing, refinement, and development of advanced water and wastewater treatment mixing systems.

Water treatment mixing is centered on the coagulation of chemicals within tested water to cause nonsettling particles to form floc or a mass of solids. This process is carried by variable surface aerators design, therefore the key to effective and efficient industrial water treatment is an optimized flash mixer. SPX FLOW brands Lightnin and Plenty utilize two emerging technologies to render accurate impeller performance and to optimize functional mixers design.

Mixing Technologies

Water and Wastewater Mixing Solutions 

Computable Fluid Dynamics software 

CFD Software is a vital process to designing consistent, optimal industrial mixing systems. CFD Software is a predictive technology, that creates an accurate simulation of the mixing process. That simulation can then be forwarded to predict the function of the mixer after 6 months or further. The predictive model created can also be used to test mixer performance on a minute level of detail and establish optimal flow patterns within the mixing system. This mixing technology gives SPX FLOW insight into the mixing process, allowing for the fabrication of an optimal mixing solution with lasting potential.

Laser Doppler Velocimetry 

Laser Doppler Velocimetry is utilized in the construction of accurately optimal mixing systems through the measurement of flow velocity by observing doppler shift within a system. Fundamentally, Laser Doppler Velocimetry is integrated into the SPX FLOW global mixing lab’s mixer design capabilities. By measuring the velocity within a flow system SPX FLOW brands Lightnin and Plenty can better predict the flow rate of a mixing solution. Laser Doppler Velocimetry is integral to the development and testing of cutting-edge mixing solutions.
