Horizontal mixer improves disinfectant retention

Central Highlands, Australia


After years of drought, and substantial decreases in water use as a result of changed customer behavior, maintaining residual at the end of Central Highlands water reticulation system became difficult. Operators realized that the hydraulics of their 2.3 Ml Enfield basin may be the source of the problem, and suspected that water was “short-circuiting” – traveling directly across the reservoir without mixing with the water on either side. PAX Water Technologies provided a horizontally-mounted version of the mixer to promote lateral mixing across the length and width of the basin in addition to top-to-bottom mixing.
