The Mobile Treatment Unit (MTU), built by Clear Water Services, is used on many projects that have an immediate need for mobile water quality solutions. The MTU is a self-contained, trailer-mounted system, designed to fulfill the Washington State Department of Ecology’s requirement for flow-through chitosan-enhanced sand filtration (CESF) technology. It is fully equipped with a control unit, a Yardney sand filter, chitosan acetate storage, interconnecting plumbing and pumps all mounted on a single, goose-neck trailer so that it can typically be mobilized and operational in less than half the time it takes others.
In addition to emergency situations, the MTU is ideal for projects with multiple phases and treatment locations as the set-up and breakdown time is reduced. Although the system is mobile, the MTU provides data collection, alarms, remote monitoring/control, and real-time water quality monitoring to make sure the client stays in compliance at all times.
