Anglian selects Dynasand for TSR framework
Continuously operating sand filtration technology from Hydro International has been selected by Anglian Water as part of a strategic new Tertiary Solids Removal (TSR) Framework in the run up to AMP6. The Framework is for an initial three-year period with subsequent extension to five years.
A total of 67 DynaSand filters from Hydro are already in use across 21 Anglian Water sites used for tertiary treatment of sewage effluent, removal of suspended solids or polishing and phosphate removal.
The DynaSand vertical sand filter operates continuously using an internal washing process that eliminates the need for water storage tanks, backwash pumps and water collection. With a small footprint, it can be used for effluent and drinking water solids removal.
Keith Hayward, sales and marketing manager of Hydro International's Wastewater Division, said: “The AMP6 spending programme is placing growing emphasis on getting more through-life value from wastewater assets. The DynaSand units across 21 Anglian Water sites are ample proof of this and the efficiency of the technology. We hope this number will grow significantly during AMP6.”
