Pump specialist Xylem Rental Solutions has added the Flygt 4220 compact adaptive mixer rental package to its offering.
Xylem’s Flygt adaptive mixers are designed to enable water utilities to manage changing mixing conditions in wastewater treatment application by adjusting the mixer output.
They offer “enhanced capabilities, including full automation,” bring control and adaptability into the mixing process, “in turn providing significant energy savings, imposed process resiliency, increased uptime and reduced inventory,” the company said.
According to Xylem, Flygt 4220 is the “first and only” mixing product available for rent, to help avoid unplanned downtime and enable continuous operation of plant processes, regardless of maintenance requirements of permanently installed mixing equipment.
Xylem is also said to be the only manufacturer that also installs, commissions and services all rental equipment.
Greg Asselta, Business Development Manager, Rental & Services, Xylem, said,
“Utilities of every size now have new opportunities to enhance their wastewater operations with the Flygt Mixer Rental Package, including: optimised capital investment and inventory management; proactive maintenance for uninterrupted operation; prolonged owned equipment life cycle; and ability to trial adaptive mixing technology for increased energy and cost savings.”
The mixer’s compact design is intended for easy transport and installation, while the company said its adaptive mixing technology is suitable for applications, including municipal wastewater treatment plants, water utilities and industrial.
The rental package includes a portable stainless-steel mixer stand with a “sled-like” design to provide stability and portability, allowing the mixer to operate in a horizontal configuration, while a specially designed lifting bail aids tank installations and fork pockets can be used for truck loading and unloading.
The stand is optional for application use as the Flygt adaptive mixer can also be mounted directly on existing applications.
Also included is an adaptive compact mixer built with cast iron and stainless steel using a 3 horsepower, 3-phase synchronous permanent magnet, and a 3-blade propeller.
Operators can control and adjust output via a tank-side, steel-enclosed but easily accessible control panel to maintain mixer modifications. By matching output to real demand, the adaptive mixers save operational costs and optimize process efficiency.
