Calix Water Business in North America is IER (www.ierwater.com).
IER offers Magnesium Hydroxide-based products as safe, earth-friendly alternatives to the use of caustic soda for pH neutralization, along with proprietary polymer solids removal technologies.
Calix leverages a culture of innovation to provide fully customised services such as design, engineering, installation, piping and commissioning services to provide turnkey systems for chemical dosing.
The standard dosing can be deployed in optional configurations as required by specific sites. Where the units will be deployed in a public space or a site with low security, the system can be fitted with external cladding to prevent damage due to vandalism. Where the system is exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures as is common with remote sites, the systems can come fitted in an insulated panel.
ACTI-Mag is not categorised as a dangerous chemical and in most jurisdictions does not require bunding. However to reduce the impact of any spills customers can opt to have the unit in a fully bunded enclosure.
Calix’s standard dosing system is a compact, reliable and innovative system based on years of experience with Magnesium Hydroxide Liquid. The system includes a 2000L conical tank, a peristaltic pump capable of dosing up to 70L of ACTI-Mag per hour, an external recirculation pump to keep the product homogeneous and a water flush line to keep the dosing line clear and reduce build-up. The system can operate in a variety of control modes based on the customers requirements.
These include dosing when the pump station is running, dosing based on daily schedule or continuously varying its dose rate based on inputs from the customers sites. The varying options allow the system to dose the optimal amount of ACTI-Mag for your needs. The standard dosing system is suitable for sites that do not require bunding or additional security. The systems can be easily loaded and unloaded with a forklift.
We are here to help you review and optimise your wastewater process, and this comes with weighing up the options and assessing what’s right for you.
Our nationwide coverage through an established network of local distributors and partners means hassle free delivery, excellent and local customer service and support wherever you are located*.
For larger sites that require additional storage capacity, security or flexibility Calix can provide fully containerised dosing systems. These systems can be based on our standard layout and format or can be custom engineered to your requirements. Storage sizes can range from 600L – 6000L in a fully bunded system. For sites that have an external bund external tanks up to 12,500L can be used. Multiple tanks can used to achieve the capacity requirements of the customers site.
Calix ACTI-Mag lowers chemical consumption and ensures easier use, handling and storage, thus considerably reducing costs. ACTI-Mag offers the following benefits:
The unit can be integrated into the customers SCADA network through a MODBUS TCP connection directly into the PLC controller.
The units only require a 10amp GPO, and come with a 15m fly lead attached as standard.
A water supply with an installed RPZ Valve with a minimum pressure of 6 bar is required for water flushing.
Our values guide us through every step of the work process, every collaboration we undertake and every challenge we approach:
Inclusion • Positive impact • Continuous improvement
Watch our Webinar: Chemical dosing unit solutions
In this webinar, Calix Business Development Manager Sam Sood and Calix Operations and Sales Engineer Shayne Rettke will discuss how Calix has leveraged a culture of innovation to provide fully customised services such as design expertise, engineering know-how, detailed engineering, installation & commissioning services to provide turnkey systems for chemical dosing.
Calix core technology makes high surface area materials (with a honeycomb-like structure), giving you a price and a reactivity advantage.
Our materials are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the health/safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits.
Fully integrated supply chain – from mine to customer
Calix is able to offer better service, reliability and performance to its
customers because it controls the entire production process from mining
of raw materials, processing and production.
Calix has its own direct delivery, service and support capabilities and also has an established a network of local distributors and partners that can provide the best solution for your specific needs and ensure you receive excellent customer service and support, wherever you are located.
Calix supports WaterAid programs to facilitate access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in the world’s poorest and most marginalised communities.
This partnership with WaterAid aligns perfectly with our purpose and the reason to why we exist “We Solve Global Challenges” and with our core value of “positive impact”.
