Xylem launches new biogas support system


US-based water technology provider Xylem has launched a new biogas support system.

Specially adapted for the wall-mounting of submersible mixers in biogas digesters, the new Flygt BIS 1 biogas support system is suitable for use with both new-build as well as existing biogas digesters.

Designed to be in line with Flygt 4460 and Flygt compact mixers, the new solution features a mixer guide bar.

The bar enables vertical and rotational movement of the mixer from outside the closed digester, to produce direct thrust in the required direction, reported Water Online.

Additionally, the system features an intermediate support that facilitates a mixer to pass over an in-between wall bracket easily without difficulty.

Xylem biogas and agriculture Eilert Balssen market manager was quoted by the publication as saying: "Biogas digesters have a sealed cover which means accessing the tank to change the mixer position is difficult.

"The Flygt BIS-1 biogas support system enables operators to move the mixer on the guide bar from the outside of the tank.

"Suitable for use with new-build'and existing biogas digesters, Xylem's Flygt BIS-1 biogas support system is corrosion and abrasion resistant.

"The BIS-1 support system has been engineered to support biogas plant operators by keeping system downtime and maintenance costs at the minimum level."
