It has been a very, very busy couple of months at Res-Kem. Systems of all sizes have been designed, built, shipped, and installed for industrial, municipal, commercial and residential customers throughout the US. As a recent example, on November 20 we shipped a triple sand filter to a customer on the California/Arizona border.
With precise drawings by Res-Kem engineers, accurate assembly by Res-Kem pipefitters, and excellent coordination with the site water and wastewater contractor, the sand filters were rapidly installed and commissioned by December 8, 2008! Please note, there was shipping time of 3 days and a Thanksgiving holiday in between!
The triple 84-inch diameter sand filtration system is sized to treat a peak flow of 1000 gpm. The sand filters are used to treat all of the potable water going to an 823,000 gallon reservoir tank after chlorination. Most of the storage capacity is for fire water requirements.
