EMASESA has recently awarded to Desarrollo de Tecnologias de Depuración (DTD) the implementation of a new system of storage and dosing of activated carbon powder (CAP) at the Carambolo Drinking Water Treatment Station. The new facility contemplates the delivery of the CAP suspension at four different points of the plant, with independent lines. Each of them is fed from a silo of 80 m3 gross capacity, and can supply up to 12 m3 / h of suspension. This new installation will give even greater robustness to the plant, having a quick and flexible shock treatment in case of episodes of diffuse contamination by pesticides or other compounds.
DTD has already made several reforms in the last years of the DWTP Carambolo, such as the renewal of one of the coagulant metering lines or the new filter-washing air network.
