Waterworks city of Toulouse

Two chlorine dioxide plants with very high capacities are in operation in order to supply the city of Toulouse with drinking water. Absolute safety in distribution of the decontaminated water to the households is required. During pre-chlorination and during post-chlorination of the water, the second system is in stand-by operation and is automatically switched on at a possible failure. The automatic 24-hours control transfers error messages immediately to the central computer of the waterworks. The individual control of the dosing pumps is also automatic. A rewarding investment for Compagnie générale des eaux. As the drinking water treatment system developed by Grundfos Alldos France replaces two of the twenty-year-old plants.
