VARIABLE ELECTRO PRECIPITATOR™
2 - 10 GPM Portable Pilot System

The F&T 2 and 10 gpm Portable Pilot Systems (patent pending) are designed to provide an efficient and effective platform for commercial optimization for Electrocoagulation (EC) technologies for field deployment. These Portable Pilot Systems are designed to control the electrocoagulation process by allowing the user to control three variables; (1) flow rate of the water to be treated, (2) electric voltage and current, (3) electrode material and spacing. Two separately controlled 2 or 10 gpm reaction chambers are included with the Portable Pilot System. The reactors are easily accessible to allow the user to vary the anode and cathode material selection and plate separation. Reactors can be dissembled and reassembled to modify the electrode configuration in each reactor.

These Systems are designed with an internal pump for a maximum of either 2 or 10 gpm input streams. The operation of the units are accomplished using a consolidated control panel. The control panel indicates the setting for each manually controlled valve for multiple test configurations. The control panel also adjusts the current and voltage settings. When the unit is operated properly, the treated water exits the system prior to precipitation. The user provides test containers or a separate continuous filtration unit that allows the ‘floc’ or precipitants to be collected and evaluated.

The user will typically test a variety of current levels, flow rates, and electrode configurations with a goal to identify the optimal settings to cause the desired destabilization and aggregation of smaller particles into larger particles which facilitates formation of a floc or precipitate. The user will typically test separation of water contaminants such as ions (heavy metals) and colloids (organics and inorganics) that are primarily held in solution by electrical charges. The Electrocoagulation process removes the charges on the suspended solids and in some cases dissolved solids in the water. Typically as the water is leaving the System, the precipitants are already forming. After the water has left the System, the precipitates can subsequently be removed by sedimentation and/or other filtration methods chosen by the user. The System can also be used to neutralize or disrupt the integrity of bacteria and other living materials such as algae and certain viruses and can serve to reduce contamination in many applications.
