Wow; I haven't seen such a collection of technically savy people.
Process Equipment & Mixers
Integrated Process Technologies is designed to provide comprehensive professional services centered on packaged mechanical-based process equipment systems and mixers to the industrial marketplace. Many mechanical-based systems require the integration of mixers.
IPT carries a specialized line of various process equipment that can be provided as individual, stand-alone units, or as a portion of a packaged system. These systems can follow the design of the owner/engineer or they can be custom designed by IPT engineers.
The balance of this page will discuss process mixers, chlorine dioxide use & generation, UV and Lutz-JESCO America controls and analyzers. However, technically speaking, all of the equipment listed on IPT's website qualifies as process equipment.
IPT is an authorized distributor of Lutz-JESCO America products for all markets in the Southwestern U.S.
Chemical Pump Skids & Assemblies - including bulk storage:
We have a full line of skid-mounted chemical delivery pumps and controllers - or custom fabricated to your needs.
In addition, IPT can design and fabricate a complete package consisting of bulk chemical storage, skid-mounted chemical metering pumps, flow, level, and pressure instrumentation & controls including system-specific instrumentation such as pH, temperature, etc.
Data logging and trending is also available.
Lutz-JESCO offers a wide range of TOPAX controllers to cover the universe of measuring and control requirements, whether it be industrial or municipal water treatment applications.
Lutz-JESCO water sampling stations have all the components necessary for measuring and regulating numerous quality parameters at one convenient location.
Pressure-resistant and temperature-resistant valves along with a TOPAX controller - where required - are included.
Various models are available for industrial applications and for municipal drinking water unit operations or points of concern within the plant.
Keep it simple; one sampling station with all your measuring parameters in one location.
These highly accurate and rugged sensors, measuring cells and chains allow the most precise data to be taken during dosing.
Temperature Sensors - Measuring Chain pH/Redox
Sensor Cells for: Chlorine - Chlorine Dioxide - Hydrogen Peroxide - TDS
Conductivity & Resistivity
Lutz-JESCO makes it possible to have an immediate response affecting the dosing process - depending upon the configuration of the controller - giving you real time information, not a snapshot of what happened yesterday.
Application and/or system-specific software is available in addition to the manual controls and direct indication of parameters and measurement data at the TOPAX controllers allowing for remote maintenance and dislplay at your PC or laptop.

MIXING & DISPERSION TECHNOLOGY:
IPT is an authorized distributor for Fusion Fluid Equipment.
Portable, Top Entry, Side Entry and Dynamic In-Line. Sizes extend from fractional horse power clamp mount agitators, to 500+ horsepower mixers for the largest and most demanding applications encountered. Mounting options include standard baseplate mounted open tank configurations and sealed units for high pressure, high temperature applications.
A complete selection of mixing impellers covers the entire range from; high flow, low shear requirements (including three different hydrofoil designs) through to specialty high shear impellers. This wide range of impeller styles allows us to match the flow and shear characteristics of a particular impeller to your exact process needs.

Chlorine Dioxide Systems:
Chlorine dioxide is usually attributed to Sir Humphrey Davy. Around 1814 Sir Davy created this compound by mixing sulfuric acid with potassium chlorate.
ClO2 is a greenish-yellowish gas with a chlorine-like odor; it is irritating to the eyes, nose, and throat.
Apart from these limited similarities to chlorine gas, ClO2 has very different properties from chlorine, in spite of the fact that it contains a chlorine atom in its molecular structure, and especially when ClO2 is added to water.
By way of comparison, ClO2 contains 263 percent "available chlorine", more than 2.5 times the oxidation capacity of chlorine; but ClO2 cannot be stored.
ClO2 is a useful alternative to chlorine in drinking water disinfection, particularly where the formation of potentially carcinogenic halogenated disinfection byproducts such as triholomethanes and halogenated acidic acids is of concern.
It is also known that ClO2 is more effective against viruses than either chlorine or ozone, and known to be effective against Giardia Lambia and Cryptosporidium.
Chlorine dioxide is highly effective as a disinfectant, considerably more effective than chlorine, and does not produce hazardous by-products in the disinfection process.
This is ensured by the Lutz-Jesco systems with their high reliability and precision. Depending upon circumstances, our systems can use either diluted or concentrated solutions.
Ultraviolet Light (UV):
Ultraviolet irradiation for germicidal applications is a disinfection method that uses ultraviolet (UV) light at sufficiently short wavelenghts to kill microorganisms.
UV of the correct wavelength is effective in destroying the nucleic acids in these organisms, thus disrupting their DNA and rendering them unable to perform vital cellular fuctions.
Redundancy can be achieved by exposing microorganisms to UV multiple times. This is achieved by circulating the air or water to ensure multiple passes. In this way, the UV is effective by providing exposure to the highest number of microorganisms irradiating potentially resistant microorganisms more than once.
The effectiveness of UV is dependent on line-of-sight exposure of the microorganisms to the UV light. Systems designed such that there is an inherent obstacle blocking the UV light are not effective.
Any coating of the UV bulb - i.e. films deposited by dirt, scale, colloidal material, etc. - can lower UV output. In any case, UV bulbs require periodic replacement and/or cleaning to ensure effectiveness.
The degree of microorganism inactivation by UV is directly related to the UV dose applied, which is in turn a product of UV light intensity and exposure time. Thus the units are microwatts per second per square centimeter, or microwatt-seconds per square centimeter (uW-s/cm2).
The US EPA has accepted UV disinfection as a method for drinking water plants to obtain Cryptosporidium, Giardia, or virus inactivation credits.
A minimum dose of 2,000 uW-s/cm2 is required for one-decimal-logarithm reduction of Cryptosporidium, based on the US EPA UV Guidance Manual.
