Purafil has selected ClearWater for representaion in North Carolina and South Carolina. Water/Wastewater purafil.com Deep Bed Scrubber: The Purafil Deep Bed Scrubber (DBS) is a highly effective, bulk media scrubber designed for controlled environments with medium-to-high contaminant gas levels. The DBS remedies the gases’ corrosive effects and meets stringent air quality standards set by the International Society of Automation (ISA). It is ideal for refineries, steel mills, smelters, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, and other hostile environments. It also functions, if needed, as a shelter-in-place application to protect employees. WWT Drum Scrubber: The WWT Drum Scrubber (DS) is engineered to remove odorous gases generated at pump stations, lift stations, wet wells and similar wastewater treatment areas where odor control is desirable. Recommended for low-level applications, the DS offers complete odor control by using a combination of medias. Quiet operation and no maintenance ensures maximum flexibility and performance OdorCarb Ultra: Highly effective at removing 0.30 grams (g) of odorous hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S) per cubic centimeter (cc) of media. This is the primary media for odor control systems in wastewater treatment applications. Media Life Analysis: As a complimentary service, Purafil’s laboratory analyzes samples of media from your air scrubber to determine the remaining life. A date for replacement can then be scheduled to ensure the protected space is not exposed to gas breakthrough or media is replaced prematurely.
The Pollution Control Facility in Hope, British Columbia, was recently upgraded with MARS aeration.

Our customer, a petrochemical plant in Saudi Arabia, had been dealing with under-performing processes within their facility. They have several waste-water drain sump pumps which utilized the VS1 type of cantilever pumps and had been in operation since the inception of the facility. Most of these pumps experience severe reliability and operational issues due to the pump casing and bearings being submerged in dirty process fluids. This harsh environment caused frequent pump failures and high operational costs… Read the entire case study here.

A leading mill services company wanted to measure both oxygen and propane for structural steel cutting torches. It is important to measure and control these gases for efficiency of combustion and energy savings.
In this example, we created a solution for a company who was experiencing inefficient chemical usage and resupply in their water treatment process. Our installation of a new Hardy floor scale was the perfect solution.
Our team identified and corrected a problem created by organic buildup within a V-Cone (Venturi) on a water intake pipe. Their meter readings were erroneous with inconsistent, and/or no measurements at times. We were able to correct this by outfitting a new Rosemount magnetic flow meter. View the full story to see how we did it.
