TIGG Engineers Add Durability to Municipal Project

A New Jersey water treatment plant needed to meet increasing demands on its services by initiating a new water filtration project. TIGG Corp.’s engineers looked at the municipality’s specifications and suggested improvements to extend the life of the filtration tanks, increasing the overall value of the project.

TIGG Corp. engineers came up with an enhanced under-drain design and recommended lining the filtration tank with a more durable epoxy. The improved epoxy provides tighter cross-linking, thereby decreasing the tank’s permeability.

“Making design recommendations to existing specifications is something our engineers do all the time,” said TIGG Corp. Vice President Anthony Mazzoni. “In this case, their expertise provided a more durable and robust system for the municipality.”

The tank, which will remove iron from the communities’ drinking water by using sand, anthracite, garnet and gravel as filtration media, is separated into three internal compartments by internal walls. The three compartments allow water flow to continue in two compartments, while the off-stream compartment is backwashing. The system lets the water treatment plant backwash one compartment using the water generated by the other two.

TIGG Corp. delivered the custom-built, 10 foot diameter, three-compartment pressure filter in July and the municipality is currently constructing a new building around it. The water treatment facility’s schedule calls for the pressure filter to come on line later this year.

“Not only does TIGG Corp. have a standard product line of equipment for treating potable water, we have the ability to customize and enhance existing designs to meet our customers’ unique requirements,” said Mazzoni.
