Together with Håkan Lindqvist (Operation Manager at NSVA-Helsingborg), we developed and conducted a pilot project at the reed water plant in Helsingborg. This part of the treatment plant demanded constant maintenance due to corrosion problems and the strong formation of struvites, which often led to stops and disturbances in operation. After nine months of error-free operation, the system was disconnected and inspected. One could then say to everyone’s joy that the formation of struvites was virtually nonexistent.
The transition from pipeline systems in acid-proof stainless steel to plastic (in this case the polypropylene) was hereby classified as a major success and resource saving.
