The system is modular in nature, meaning that more modules can be installed to cope with changes in regulation, to tackle emerging contaminants or increases in manufacturing capabilities. There is not a minimum or maximum flow rate.
There is no limit to the maximum concentration of COD which can be treated by the system. As the COD concentration increases, the amount of energy required for adsorbent regeneration increases. The process is most cost effective for low concentrations of organics.
Nyex™ will undergo some minor physical attrition due to electrochemical damage over time and will therefore need ‘topping-up’ by around 2-4% per year on average. Operating at lower current densities will minimise this. Adsorbent attrition can also occur due to excessive backwashing so it is advised to operate with low solids to preserve the Nyex™.
Increased salt will increase the conductivity of the water. This results in a reduction in the voltage required, which lowers operational costs. The ODC™ system has been tested on streams of up to 15% sodium chloride.
