Energy Savings Through the GritGone Process
Cleaning your tanks is not only important to restore capacity, but it also has potential to save on energy, which cuts costs down the road.
Sand and grit is a heavy solid with a specific gravity greater than 1, so it accumulates and settles to the bottom of the tanks. The system then has to work harder to keep the sand suspended and allow oxygen to flow through the system to treat the water. Over time, this can drastically increase costs and detention times.
U.S. Submergent Technologies recently conducted an energy analysis for a facility that used the GritGone Process® for residuals and debris removal. We found that in this particular instance, our customer is able to recoup their costs for our sand and grit removal service in energy savings in approximately less than two weeks.
