Carbonair can provide custom designed municipal drinking water treatment equipment for rental when treatment is needed for a temporary period of time. Carbonair’s STAT Low Profile Air Strippers, and carbon filter vessels are ideal for the removal of a variety of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and for removal of disinfection by-products such as, Trihalomethanes, bromodichloromethane and dibromochloropropane. Carbonair has a team of specialists available to create a custom water treatment system for your temporary drinking water treatment needs. We have provided several systems to municipalities that have had to treat water on a temporary basis, while designing and implementing a permanent solution to their contamination problem. These drinking water systems can include granular activated carbon filters, STAT Low Profile Air Strippers, ion exchange systems and a variety of other technologies.
Project Example: Temporary Treatment of Drinking Water for a Municipality
The consulting engineer for a municipal water utility contacted Carbonair to solve a problem that their client was having with several of its drinking water production wells. Low levels of Vinyl Chloride (VC) were detected in several of its drinking water wells. They needed to treat this water on a temporary basis until they could either construct new wells or build a larger permanent treatment plant to handle the problem.
Carbonair designed and supplied two trailer-mounted STAT 720 Low Profile Air Strippers for treating up to 2000 gpm of contaminated water. These trailer mounted air strippers were put into service in May of 2008 and successfully and economically treated the water from two municipal wells, removing 99.9% of the TCE in the water and providing safe drinking water for the city residents.
