Chilmington Dispatch 🚛🏗️

Another kiosk off to it’s new home, a 10K septicity kiosk wrapped & dispatched off to another happy customer in Kent, awaiting our onsite installation team for completion of the final connections.

Did you know?

Septicity in a sewage system occurs when microorganisms use up all the dissolved oxygen and nitrates in the sewage. Without oxygen, anaerobic conditions develop, and bacteria reduces the organic compounds to Sulphur and sulphide. Then sulphate-reducing bacteria utilise sulphates to form sulphides. This results in foul odours and corrosion of the concrete pipes and mortar joints due to hydrogen sulphide.

The activity of micro-organisms which form sulphide can be inhibited by a range of organic chemicals, in this case we use calcium nitrate. However, to be effective it needs to be added continuously. Our factory-built dosing rig does just that! This standalone septicity treatment rig continuously doses calcium nitrate into the affected sewage area.

Another Compact Delivery! 🏗️🚛

Another delivery for our clients today! A factory-built Chemical Dosing system for wastewater treatment, being delivered to the Southern Water area. The system comprises Lintott’s innovative dual-chemical dosing technology for Phosphate Removal & pH Correction in a single package. This cost and carbon-effective solution reduces time and complexity through the combination of two chemical processes in a single package with segregated tanks and bunded storage.

The single footprint brings inherent advantages including reduced civils, reduced raw material input, lower embodied carbon and lower operational carbon. Operated from a single control panel with Lintott’s inhouse developed software, both processes are configured, optimised and operated through one HMI. Accommodating customer logistics and again reducing carbon footprint, the witness testing (Customer Factory Acceptance Test) was facilitated remotely via Microsoft Teams).
