Cambridge Water Recycling Centre keeps pipes clear using ENiGMA

Ceri Williams, Treatment Manager for Anglian Water, says that since turning the ENiGMA unit on they have not had to replace any pipes and it has been more than 2 years now.  They have definitely seen an improvement in the quality and the amount of time we have to replace pipes. 

ENiGMA - Chemical Free Struvite Deposit Control

Waste water presents a unique series of challenges when it comes to the problems of mineral deposits. This is because scale problems in waste water can occur in both soft and hard water areas of the country and commonly the scale does not only consist of calcium carbonate but is often comprised of other products such as the phosphates of iron and magnesium.

Recently, Environmental Treatment Concepts have been approached by a number of Utility Companies with a view to using electronics rather than chemical means to treat their struvite deposit problems. Unplanned maintenance to clean centrate lines can cost upwards of £1500 per day alongside significant process inconvenience. With ENiGMA technology installed this cost can be significantly reduced or eliminated completely.

The ENiGMA installation is non-intrusive so requires no downtime for installation and can, therefore, be fitted retrospectively to areas of existing problems.

Without ENiGMA mineral deposits build up on pipe walls.

With ENiGMA treatment the deposits are removed from the pipe.
