Drinking water reservoirs play a central role in implementing reliable access to drinking water in our cities and communities. Because treatment of drinking water can be costly and subject to highest quality standards, what is important is that no post-contamination, biological or chemical contamination occurs. This would involve a significant hazard to the consumer.
A major risk is the stratification of drinking water reservoirs. During the process, different water layers with different temperatures occur in the reservoirs. There is no fluid exchange between these layers. Algae formation, post-contamination or uncontrolled chemical concentration may occur during the extended dwell time of some of the water that occurs as a result. All this can easily be prevented with the use of the INVENT HYPERMIX®-Agitator, a mixing element developed especially for this kind of application. It provides an effective solution for layer formation and prevents it from re-forming.
