Why SNP Eductors Are EssentialWhen working with dry polymers, it is crucial that they are added and hydrated properly to prevent problems such as lumping or product inefficiency. If the dry polymer particles are not individually hydrated, clumps of un-dissolved polymer will form. These clumps could result in plugged filters, ball valves and check valves. Adding dry polymers too quickly or too slowly can create inconsistent batches in your liquid system, which is why a dry polymer dispenser is essential.
How SNP’s Material Handling Eductor WorksSNP’s material handling eductor, also known as a hootonanny or liquid jet pump, can prevent most of these clumping issues. It provides an efficient system for the addition of water-soluble polymers such as guar, polyvinyl alcohol, xanthan gum, sugar, starches, sodium alginate, polyacrylamides and more. Using venturi action, our polymer eductor pulls the dry product uniformly into a water vortex thus wetting the particles and ensuring complete hydration of these particles in the system.
How To Install An SNP Dry Polymer EductorAn SNP dry polymer eductor is easy to install for immediate application and use. See the steps below:
- Give it access to a water source of at least 50 psi to create a strong vacuum.
- Once your water pressure is up to 50 psi, add your material to the intake.
- Allow the eductor do its job to completely wet and disperse the dry polymer particles.
