We are pleased to announce that AquaShield will be presenting at StormCon 2015 in Austin! If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late. There are also special student rates. You can register at http://www.stormcon.com/registration.html.
The AquaShield presentation will explore the predictive performance scaling method for hydrodynamic separators using the Peclet number. A documented hydrodynamic separator performance curve is used as an example to generate a series of predicted performance curves for the same device for median (d50) particle sizes ranging from 45 to 125 microns. Sizing charts are also generated from the predicted performance curves using this Peclet number approach. This method also allows for reasonable comparisons between different laboratory testing programs when different influent particle size distributions were used.
The critical role of particle size in performance testing becomes even more evident when regulatory design guidelines lack a particle size specification for system sizing criteria. In those cases, the real potential to undersize or oversize facilities can lead to a variety of implementation, performance and long-term functionality concerns.
We won’t give away everything! Attend our presentation to get all the information.
