E3 Solutions' Rotary Atomizer vs Competitive Pressure Nozzles

 

The enhanced evaporation technology market is still advancing and there are different systems being developed and refined. When examining natural evaporation, there are many factors, such as water temperature, wind, humidity, water vapor pressure, dew point, outside temperature, and many more. There are also many factors to consider when choosing to introduce enhanced evaporation into your process. This blog post will clarify some main differences between E3 Solutions Varimax® mechanical rotary atomization versus pressurized spiral and pressurized hollow nozzles ie, snow cannons.

Salt Drift: Surprisingly Short Hang Times

Salt Drift: Surprisingly Short Hang Times

One of the biggest questions I always get asked from potential clients wanting to incorporate enhanced evaporation equipment, is the containment of salt drift from high TDS waste streams. As technology improves and more studies evolve, one thing is for sure, salt is always in the atmosphere, mostly from the salt loading from the ocean due to natures design. Surprisingly, models and observations have proved tiny micron particles return to the sea in a short time frame.

Droplet Spectra Test For Enhanced Evaporation

Droplet Spectra Test For Enhanced Evaporation

Enhanced evaporation is without a doubt the least expensive wastewater treatment method in the marketplace. However, there are a couple of regulatory conditions when using enhanced evaporation that needs to be handled when treating higher TDS wastewater streams. The most common condition is overspray. While competitive equipment can only highlight pressure settings and micron spectra size through spiral nozzle manufacturing data, there is no way to control the droplet size using this method. Using E3's patented and proprietary variable motor speed control using localized wind parameters gives the user the ability to manipulate water droplet sizes. E3's recent droplet testing by Spraying Systems Company proves E3's technology can create the perfect droplet spectra's for increasing evaporation conditions and at the same time meet regulatory compliances.

Billions of gallons of water are removed each year from the hydrologic cycle and injected into underground formations thousands of feet below the surface of the earth.  Hydrologists agree that there is approximately less than 1% usable water for humans on our planet.  With proven enhanced evaporation methods, why continue sending this precious resource underground out of the hydrology cycle?
