Hydrok, in association with Setford Consultants, recently installed the innovative Mecana Pile Cloth Media Filter at Southern Water’s Hailsham North WwTW, at rapid speed and with minimal disruption to the plant operational capabilities. Morrison Utility Services, working on behalf of Southern Water were looking for a temporary tertiary treatment process to treat all flows during a lengthy refurbishment of the existing Sand Filters, and approached Hydrok for a solution.
Hydrok, working as a subcontractor to GCA JV (GallifordTry, Costain, Atkins) designed, manufactured, installed and commissioned a new Raw Water Intake Screening (RWIS) system for use by the Client, United Utilities, on the River Dee at Huntington near Chester.
Hydrok's SUDS solutions have been given a boost with the Hydrok HydroSlide flow control units now included within Micro Drainage 2014 software from XPSolutions. The new software permits the export of drainage network designs into modelling software, and includes Hydrok HydroSlide flow controls within the QuOST module. The HydroSlide flow regulator provides a proven cost effective technique for regulating flows from upwards of two litres per second.
The HydroSlide range of flow regulators are frequently used in the control of flows from rivers, streams and attenuation dam structures. As a variable orifice control, it will control flows to the desired pass forward flow rate (PFF) throughout the head range. This optimises downstream capacity and minimises upstream attenuation volumes.
