Snyder’s has six major manufacturing locations, including the world’s largest rotational molding facility, mold a variety of polyethylene materials including FDA and NSF 61 listed linear high-density (HDLPE) and cross-linked high-density (XLPE) resins. Superior quality systems ensure safety Snyder’s commitment to quality starts with an uncompromising analysis of incoming raw materials. It continues throughout the completion of finished product assembly with the application of Statistical Process Control (SPC). Moreover, Snyder executes a final quality check with its industry-leading inspection program on products before shipment. Proven tank design and engineering expertise Snyder’s large engineering staff is responsible for a multitude of polyethylene tank processes and design patents.
Municipal water or wastewater treatment applications:
Polyethylene tanks play an important role in municipal water treatment. To treat drinking water, municipalities use chemicals such as ferrics, alums and polymers for coagulation which cause solid particle in water to clump together so they can be removed. Additionally chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite are used as a disinfection agent to destroy bacteria and pathogens to make the water safe for drinking. Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (Fluoride) is also commonly added to many municipal water supplies. Snyder has safe storage tank solutions for each of these chemicals.
Wastewater treatment requires a larger amount of chemicals than municipal drinking water treatment. Highly corrosive chemicals such as sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide are used for neutralization. Ferric chloride, aluminum chloride and polymers are used to facilitate removal of solid particles. All of these chemicals present challenges for operators and Hawkins can help you with the right Snyder tank solution to ensure employee safety and trouble-free service.
