Blowers help recycled water project

The new facility is part of the $76 million Glenelg to Adelaide Park Lands Recycled Water project, which will supply up to 5.5 billion litres a year of recycled water for irrigation.The water is pumped to the parklands around North Adelaide and the CBD via an 8-kilometre main underground pipeline from Glenelg to the parklands and a 24km underground pipeline distribution network.CAPS Australia supplied two 22-kilowatt Robuschi Evolution blowers to provide air supply to two ultrafiltration membrane units and for air scouring. CAPS SA sales manager Kevin Jones said the blower packages were assembled at the company’s Adelaide workshop to the specifications required by the project engineers.“The Glenelg to Adelaide Park Lands Recycled Water project is yet another example where CAPS has worked successfully with water treatment contractors, consulting and design engineers and water authorities around Australia,” Jones said.The project was delivered more than four months ahead of schedule by the CityGreen Alliance, comprising SA Water, United Water, Leed Engineering and Construction, Leighton Services and Guidera O’Connor.
