Continuous Flow Chemical Reaction Systems
Hydro-Flo solves issues at Bix Produce
This is a custom (sump installation) pH adjustment system installed
in a large produce processing facility. Click on the image

At this facility they were violating pH discharge limits at both
ends of the pH spectrum. They were confronted with a number of
installation issues that required them to install a main collection
sump for fluid transfer. At Hydro-Flo's recommendation, they
combined the sump and pH control package into one compact sump
mounted gravity flow through system that eliminated the need for a
sophisticated transfer pump station and all the ancillary control
They are currently in compliance and have the system dialed in using
a minimum of acid and caustic.
Hydro-Flo manufactures four basic types of
Continuous Flow Chemical Reaction Systems. These are
multi-stage chemical reaction systems
flash mix and flocculation systems.
Continuous flow treatment systems are
available for treating flow rates from as little as 10 GPM to as
much as 3,000 GPM.
Continuous Flow pH
The Hydro-Flo continuous flow pH adjustment system is a basic,
single reaction system designed to adjust the pH of process water,
or wastewater, to a specific pH for use in a specific manufacturing
process, or for discharge to sanitary sewer.
Continuous Flow pH Neutralization Systems
Like the pH adjustment system, the Hydro-Flo
continuous flow pH neutralization system is a basic, single reaction system.
The difference is that the neutralization system is designed to
adjust the pH of highly concentrated acid or caustic solutions.
After neutralization, the solutions are ready for use in a specific
manufacturing process, or for discharge to sanitary sewer.
The Hydro-Flo continuous flow multi-stage
chemical reaction system is designed to deal with complex wastewater
treatment issues requiring multiple stages / processes to treat and
remove contaminants from the wastewater down to desired discharge
Flow Flash Mix, Flocculation
The Hydro-Flo flash mix and flocculation
system is designed for optimal polymer injection, dispersion and
