Article: Case study - Hydrodynamic Separator Optimizes Irrigation System, Water Technology Magazine
Updated: Jul 13, 2020
A solids separator installed at an agricultural production facility maintains water quality at the inlet of an irrigation system.
With the move to better and more precise irrigation systems, the need for better water quality at the inlet to irrigation systems is increasing.
One of the main impurities that need to be removed prior to irrigation systems is particles in the water. Particles might be present in the water from natural sources or from man made pollution. While filtration might be a suitable solution for particles removal, a solids separation step will be needed either as pretreatment or a stand-alone process if turbidity levels exceed 50 to 100 Nephelometric Turbidity Units (NTU), or for the treatment of fine particles, such as algae.
AquaHD developed the Natica, a hydrodynamic separator that is a leap forward from conventional solids separation processes.
