How did a Chemical Processing Plant Save Nearly 1.8-Million Gallons of Water Annually

Water Waste Reduction Solution

A chemical processing plant wanted to reduce the amount of water it used to process lithium hydroxide used in batteries.  The water waste was linked to packing used on a pump in the hydroxide and limestone slurry process, leaking onto the concrete floor and red clay soil.  Excessive water consumption, constant packing service, EPA concerns and facility structural heaving damage were among the reported issues.

Chemineer announces NEW JT-2 Impeller

The NEW Chemineer JT-2 Impeller has been designed for a difficult application - blending high viscosity and non-Newtonian fluids.   The JT-2, a transitional flow impeller, is specially engineered for situations where conventional turbines have lost their efficiency due to viscous effects, but you don't yet need a close clearance impeller. The JT-2 provides up to 50% reduction in power draw for the same blending performance compared with competitive impellers.
