The fully automated Reliant treatment plant offers an economical means of removing high levels of turbidity, color, metals and waterborne disease organisms.
Reliant is a conventional system utilizing flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration. It is generally recommended where turbidities are regularly above 150 NTU. Reliant plants work by chemically treating, flash mixing, and mechanically flocculating raw water to form a strong, settleable floc.
Backwash can be initiated manually or automatically on the basis of headloss elapsed time or turbidity. Sludge removal from the settling section is activated independent of backwash without affecting normal plant operation.
