Polymer Preparation System (ASP)

Overview

MAK Water’s Polymer Preparation System (ASP) is a packaged plant used for automated batching of matured polymer solution from liquid concentrate polymer (C-type) or powder polymer (P-type). The ASP is ideal for mechanical sludge dewatering applications and small to medium water and wastewater treatment processes, including clarification and thickening.

Both the C-type and P-type ASP systems have a mixing tank fitted with a mixer, and a solution storage tank. Both tanks are fitted with level probes used for control purposes. There are actuated valves on the water inlet, and on the discharge of matured polymer solution between mixing and storage tanks. The P-type has a powder hopper with heated feeder that feeds powder polymer into the mixing tank. The C-type has a feed pump to transfer concentrated liquid polymer from a bulk tank (by others) into the mixing tank. The powder hopper for the P-type is filled manually.

 

Features

  • Simple and robust design
  • Ease of installation & operation
  • Fully automated control
  • Low investment cost

Notes:
*¹ Maximum solution output is based on the time required to prepare a batch of matured polymer (where polymer chains are fully unrolled) and assumes using standard municipal water pressure to fill the mixing tank. Liquid concentrate polymer requires approx. 20-25 min/batch to mix and mature, and powder polymer requires approx. 65-75 min/batch. Example calculations:

  • ASP-1C: 110 L mixing tank @ 3 - 2.4 batches/hr gives 330 - 264 L of matured polymer solution per hour, i.e. rated max 300 L/h
  • ASP-2P: 150 L mixing tank @ 0.9 - 0.8 batches/hr gives 135 - 120 L of matured polymer solution per hour, i.e. rated max 130 L/h

 

*² Powder feeder: speed 56 rpm, heating power 10W (230V AC), knock system solenoid 40W, 20N

*³ Polymer concentrate polymer feed pump: INJECTA piston pump, piston dia 48mm, max flow 85 L/h, max 100 m head, manual stroke adjustment
