Tideflex Mixing Systems (TMS) For Potable Water Storage Tanks

Custom Engineered for an Innovative Mixing Solution

The key to the Tideflex Mixing System (TMS) is the Tideflex Check Valve. Developed in the 1980s from a United States EPA grant, the check valve was created to solve backflow problems in outfall pipes. Tideflex Engineers further expanded the use of the Tideflex Check Valve by developing it into a Variable Orifice Inlet Nozzle that provides superior mixing characteristics when compared to a fixed-diameter pipe. When used in the TMS, the Tideflex Variable Orifice Nozzles optimize jet velocity at all flow rates and discharge an elliptically shaped jet, achieving rapid and complete mixing and improving water quality. The TMS also separates the inlet and outlet with one manifold pipe, eliminating short-circuiting, water stagnation, dead zones and stratification.
