ImageSAN ANTONIO, Texas ― Three TIGG activated carbon dual-vessel skid systems went online in San Antonio, August 14. The systems are capable of purifying more than 5 million gallons of water a day. The integrated units were engineered at TIGG’s Oakdale, Pa. headquarters.

The GAC adsorption systems are being used to proactively remove TOCs and THMs from Canyon Lake, a nearby potable surface water supply, to reduce potential for formation of disinfection by-products (DBP) in the distribution system, and ensure compliance with EPA Stage 2 DBP regulations.

TIGG Corporation won the competitively bid contract to rent the systems to SAWS on July 3. The agreement could be worth up to $2.5 million. TIGG’s CP 20K-10 dual Vessel Skid Systems meet or exceed SAWS specification requirements for the application. The units are capable of running either in series or parallel. Each system holds 40,000 lbs of granular activated carbon and is capable of purifying water at 1,500 gpm. The contract also included operational training for SAWS employees.

“Although we’ve been manufacturing the dual-vessel CP 20K-10 system for years, this is the first time we’ve supplied a client with the complete system on a skid,” said Anthony Mazzoni, TIGG vice president. “We specifically engineered each skid to ship on a single flatbed truck. Plus, the skids simplify the setup process and help reduce labor costs.”
