The Science of Mixing and Improving Water Quality in Water Storage Tanks (Webinar - Tideflex / Flomec)

12/15/2020 10:00am - 11:00am

Event date: 12/15/2020 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Export event

This technical webinar will provide attendees a fundamental understanding of mixing processes in all styles of water storage tanks.  The deficiencies of single inlet and outlet pipes and the impact of temperature differences between inlet water and tank water are demonstrated.  The improved mixing efficiency of multi-port manifolds is presented.  Other methods are also discussed (baffles, recirculation pumps, mechanical mixers, etc.).  The discussion is supported by the use of CFD and physical scale model animations so the attendees will actually see short-circuiting and mixing in storage tanks.  Several “before and after” case studies are presented using field sampling data that shows the elimination of stratification, improvement in residuals, and reduction in water age.
