New Meurer Research, Inc. Video – A Comparison of MRI Inclined Plate Settler Capabilities and Benefits at Startex-Jackson-Wellford-Duncan (SJWD) Water District

11.13.2019    /    Press release


Meurer Research, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of a new video that highlights the design and benefits of treating water with MRI Inclined Plate Settlers at a key water treatment facility in Lyman, SC. Utilizing comparative data, video and images, this video proves the benefits of MRI’s plate settlers over those of a competing technology operating in a separate basin at the same plant.

Plate settler technology is utilized to settle out floc, or solids, and allows for increased capacity of water treatment in a reduced space. It is vital to downstream plant operations and maintenance; however, not all plate settler technologies are created equal.

Watch as third party data spanning over four seasons shows how MRI’s plate settlers consistently performed better, avoided turbidity spikes that negatively affect membranes, and provided overall smoother trends. Creation of headloss needed for this even flow and smooth operation is aided by distribution holes on MRI’s Flow Control Deck. MRI’s Hoseless Cable-Vac™ Sludge Collectors are also utilized in both basins at the plant to remove settled solids without disrupting the settling zone. The result is cleaner clarified water, lower water turbidity, and costs savings with MRI technology.
