Water LynxTM Blocks—Environmentally Safe Flocculant
Water LynxTM blocks introduces a flocculant that is safe for the environment for effluents and drainage.
A flocculant is an agent that helps other agents, such as suspended sediments, to accumulate into larger particles. The Water LynxTM gel block slowly releases and mixes the flocculant with water in streams, pipes and dump sites. Water LynxTM blocks bind suspended sediments and associated contaminants, such as nutrients, metals and hydrocarbons, allowing effective separation and contaminant removal.
Water Lynx® blocks can be placed directly into a turbulent effluent or applied with a mixing device such as an aerator or one of our pipe reactors.
Pipe Reactor - Mobile Water Treatment for Sediment Abatement
The pipe reactor connects to a 2 or 3 inch pipe and is designed to optimize the performance of Water LynxTM blocks. The flow rate and the length of the pipe make it possible to control mixing and reaction time. This ensures that the suspended sediments are bonded so that they can be easily separated. Treated geo-jute can be used at the pipe reactor’s exit to capture sediments and produce a treated water stream.
The pipe reactor can be either rented or purchased.
Treated geo-jute is designed to reduce the amount of sediment and silty water that is released during excavation work or at a lagoon’s discharge, for example. The product is delivered to the site in rolls and can be laid at the outlet of ditches, pipes and streams effluents, or as a vertical curtain in a lagoon or a container.
Typically, the roll is deposited in a channel or a ditch, either directly on the ground or on a plastic membrane. It can be kept in place with material found in surrounding environment, such as stones.
The treated geo-jute is mainly used for polishing before site water discharge and is regularly used as a final treatment solution.
Treated geo-jute is often used downstream of the Water LynxTM blocks and sediment capture structures to create a comprehensive sediment capture and removal system.
This product is treated with 30 grams per square meter of Water LynxTM granules. This very simple treatment solution makes it possible to significantly enhance treatment results.
The treated geo-jute is sold in rolls.
