Wastewater treatment capacity
In order to ensure the care of patients affected by COVID-19 and continue normal health services, the Civic Hospital of Partinico needed to create a new treatment plant to manage the volume of wastewater in compliance with the effluent parameters set by the authorities.
To ensure effective treatment of chemical compounds in the wastewater – such as antibiotics, X-ray contrast agents, disinfectants and pharmaceutical residue – the Civic Hospital of Partinico looked to Xylem to supply the necessary equipment via the contractor B.O.D srl.
Xylem is honored to have supported the safe treatment of the hospital’s wastewater, helping protect the public and environmental health of the city. And we’re honored to serve healthcare workers on the frontlines of this crisis who are doing so much to protect their community.
About the technology
The wastewater treatment plant was built inside a fiberglass tank and consists of three treatment stages. The first stage lifts the wastewater through two Flygt NP3069 pumps and sends it to the next stage, where the wastewater is treated with chlorine, a disinfectant with high bactericidal capacity. The third stage, in which two Flygt SR4610SF mixers and two Flygt NP3069 pumps operate, eliminates the residual chlorine and discharge the wastewater into the city’s sewage system.
