MIOX selected to treat reclaimed water for Emerald coast utility authority’s Pensacola plant

MIOX Corporation has been selected by Baskerville-Donovan, Inc. to supply five RIO Series on-site sodium hypochlorite generators for the final disinfection phase at the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority’s (ECUA) new Central Water Reclamation Facility (CWRF) in Pensacola, Florida. Each RIO unit has a 500 pound per day capacity and will treat 20 million gallons of wastewater per day. The new treatment facility, expected to be complete in 2010, will replace the aging Main Street Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The RIO units will produce up to 20 million gallons of effluent per day, and the disinfected water will be reused by Gulf Power’s Crist Plant. Recycling the effluent discharge via industrial reuse minimizes the impact the facility’s processes will have on the environment while enhancing the efficiency and reducing operational costs of both the Crist Plant and the CWRF.

The RIO generates a 0.8 percent sodium hypochlorite solution on site, on demand, by combining three common consumables - salt, water and electricity. Generating a chlorine equivalent on site eliminates the need to transport and store potentially dangerous chlorine gas and alleviates operational challenges associated with storing and injecting bulk sodium hypochlorite. The MIOX system product line is highly scalable with free available chlorine (FAC) ranging from 4 to 1,550+ lb/day.
