1. Flash Mixer, Flocculators, Agitators
A flash mixer is a chamber that contains mechanical stirrers, which is designed to assure fast, thorough, mixing of lime and alum for the purpose of creating floc.
After screening out debris and testing the raw water, water treatment really begins at the flash mix chamber. Here, chemicals are added to the water, primarily to aid in coagulation and flocculation. In the flash mixer, the water is agitated violently for a short period of time before being released into the flocculation basin.
