Subject: gf: 18 months behind but project results
Bigbro    9/19/2008 11:46:41 AM
I have some results finally on our pilot test of a new water treatment system. I gave a pager on this at the South West Chemistry work shop in Las Vegas this Summer. The Pilot plant we are testing is a counter current anion exchange system for treating high TDS water. SO4 inlet 4000 ppm outlet 100 ppm Cl inlet 1000 ppm outlet less than 10 ppm SiO2 inlet 90 ppm outlet 3 ppm. Moving parts, a NaOH pump. CO2 injection for Calcium removal, testing on going. Bb

K, thats good to see, I assumed that you were flat out with this as your emails had gone quiet - that meant that you'd either lost my email addy or you were up to your neck working on a solution.  :)
I don't suppose you have white papers you can send me?
Our new turbine is slowly starting to gather interest, my partners have been doing the Euro circuit over the last few weeks and are starting to get a bit more interest etc....
Unfort, full time work means that the turbine side of my life is being picked up by my partners etc...
would be interested to see what numbers you can release. is your old email addy active? name@w*.net??

Gf, should be able to provide something in late Oct. would be bad form to copy you before the guys in the head office.  Work is starting on designs for a production unit.  Sub scale prototype of production unit is being put together now and should be on station mid Oct.   I will talk more about CO2 at a later date.  On some of your high silica hight TDS waters this should be able to take care of it. 
My computer here at home died and lost your e-mail here, I think that I still have it at work.  If you get a chance send me an e-mail.  
I do not know if you got to bid or not but we are installing 200 mw of wind.  Solar is starting to make a dent in our load, we are  going to be looking at some overseas tech for solar thermal.  PV panels are great till the sun goes behind a cloud, then big freq. swing due to lost mws. 
Sorry that I have not been posting or e-mailing all of you here but have not had time for fun in some time.  As a hard core gun bunny I have not even got to pull things out of the gun safe.
