Titanium coagulant tests at Norilsk water treatment facilities conducted successfully
SITTEC Ltd. carried out successful titanium coagulant tests at Norilsk water treatment facilities.
Late May and early June 2011 saw SITTEC Ltd. and OJSC Norilsk-Taymyr Energy Company carry out a range of works in the production laboratory of Teplovodogazosnabzhenie department. The works were aimed at the implementation of titanium coagulant in drinking water production in Norilsk.
The tests proved that water treated with titanium coagulant was of exceptional quality and surpassed all current requirements by a great margin. In addition, purifying water with titanium coagulant was proved to be a great deal less expensive than treating it with the currently applied reagent (aluminum sulfate).
An important peculiarity of the tests is that starting from the freshet period in June the quality of raw water in the water body (the Norilsk river) considerably decreases and the water parameters, including the temperature of raw water, sharply change. It requires the application of advanced methods of producing drinking water by means of applying reagents.
Following the test results the parties began to prepare for the industrial scale implementation of titanium coagulant for water treatment at Norilsk water treatment facilities.
OJSC Norilsk-Taymyr Energy Company was founded in 2005 on the basis of energy generating assets and networks of Norilskenergo, a branch of OJSC Norilsk Nickel Mining and Metallurgical Company, and of OJSC Taymyrenergo. The company supplies electric energy, heat and water to five cities, two settlements, as well as to all the Norilsk industrial region facilities.
SITTEC Ltd., which is part of IFD Kapital Group, is realizing the project of building up titanium coagulant production on the basis of Yarega oil and titanium resource (the Ukhta Region, the Komi Republic, the Russian Federation). Titanium coagulant is an innovative highly effective chemical for drinking water production, and industrial and municipal waste water treatment. The superior removal capacity of titanium coagulant is accounted for by the high adsorption capacity of titanium containing phases in the product, which has significant technical and economic advantages over other coagulants.
