Pellet Softening at Water Works Fong Shan

 

The Taiwan Water Supply Corporation hired RHDHV as Contracting Operator and its Taiwanese sister company RHDHV Planetek for a detailed design and awarded the turn-key construction of the Crystalactor® softening plant, rapid filtration and contact aeration.

RHDHV provided start-up assistance and training during the commissioning of the plant and provides process technical advice during the 15 years’ operation of the plants.

Solution

RHDHV carried out detailed design of the softening plant and supplied critical mechanical equipment and reactor internals and provided the control program for this plant. DHV also provided start-up assistance and training during the commissioning of the plant.

At Fong Shan, the Crystalactor® -system is located after pre-sedimentation and clarification and handles 15,312 m3/h. The six concrete "pellet" reactors are 4.8 m wide and long and 8.0 m high.

RHDHV is currently involved in the operation and maintenance of the plant. This involves the 24/7 running of the plant complying with strict volume and quality requirements.

The running of the plant was certified in 2010 under ISO 9000 and ISO14000.
