AQUARK DEGAZITOR SYSTEMS
Aquaquark Degassing Systems are used to remove dissolved gases such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) from water. Water enters the unit through an overhead distribution diffuser, then flows down a bed of distribution spheres that cut off the water flow. A flow of air is provided by a large fan at the bottom of the unit, and the air flows upward through the water, ensuring close contact of air and water. This removes the gases from the water and the gases are vented from the top of the unit while purified water flows from the bottom.
Degassing systems reduce the load on your ion exchange systems by removing both naturally occurring gases and gases that are by-products of the various stages of water treatment. Using these simple and cost-effective systems can significantly reduce the frequency of resin regeneration cycles. And they are almost maintenance free.
MANDATORY DRAFT DECARBONATORS
Forced Draft Decarbonators consist of an atmospheric tank filled with plastic wrap above a clean well. The process water is sprayed on the package from the top, spreading the water finely and releasing the trapped carbon dioxide. The released gas is then blown by a low pressure fan into a vent at the top of the tank and the process water flows into a clean well at the bottom of the unit and goes to the next treatment stage.
WHEN IS THIS UNIT NEEDED?
Forced draft decarbonators remove gas, mainly Carbon Dioxide, from the process water and are typically placed between Cation and Anion ion exchange units or before or after a RO unit. If your process water contains high levels of Carbon Dioxide, not using a decarbonator can result in increased need for Anion resin regeneration and associated downtime and chemical costs. Carbon Dioxide is a byproduct of cation exchange and various acids used to control pH levels in process water.
