1 American Eco Systems Revolutionizes the Operations of Seawater Withdrawal and Discharge No maintenance associated with the InvisiHead, no expenses and cheaper than the O&M-intensive wedge wire screen and mesh intakes
2 Seaweed Proliferation Because of Global Warming, climate is changing so is seaweed growth
3 Seaweeds are taking over a once sandy floor Loose floating seaweed clog intake screensSeaweeds are taking over a once sandy floor
4 The InvisiHead is weed and sediment proof Sea weeds are deadly to mesh screens and wedge wire intakes when they become waterborne; sediments go unhindered through screen mesh wireThe InvisiHead is weed and sediment proof
6 The Screen Clogging Weeds that tangle in wedge wire screens when they become waterborne. They are not cleared off by airbursts. The InvisiHead is unaffected by them The saame goes for travling and band sceens
7 Seaweeds mature by the end of summer and start braking up in the fall threating open channel and screened and wedge wire intakes
8 Buoyancy of seaweed fluctuates throughout the water column Buoyancy of seaweed fluctuates throughout the water column. The weeds do not affect the InvisiHead or hinder its operation but deadly to wedge wire screens
9 Dense dead seaweed washes-up near the shore and becomes an operational nightmare for seawater users
11 That’s all you need, simply natural and easy In the proactive American Eco Systems’ Elmosa Seawater intake system: elements A (the InvisiHead) & B (the NatSep), is all you need to supply any quantity of high quality raw waterABNo maintenance or maintenance expenses for life, low capital cost, robust structure, supported for G5 hurricane forceuseful life: 50+ yearsThe InvisiHead
12 The InvisiHead Intake Head US EPA: Best Technology Available (BTA)Robust and stable under all operating conditionsThe InvisiHead manages and controls the quality of the intake systemPassive operation, no parts or moving parts to replace ;Self-operating & maintaining for life of over 50 years;No Maintenance or O&M expenses associated.
13 The IH is hydraulically invisible to suspended materials Super slow approach and entrance velocity (0.002 and 0.09 m/s) guarantee the absolute minimum if any of:Fish, jellyfish, sand,Seaweed & debris to enterthe intake system;The IH system has beenupgraded in 2013 to have the sequenceof the four flow phases bettertuned to eliminate marine life like fish &jellyfish, sediment and debris inflow;System maintenance-free operationmakes money by saving O&M expenses.The InvisiHead is also cheaper to buy than wedge wire screens.The InvisiHead: Self-operating, Self-maintainingThe flow goes through 4 phases:Approach, 0.002m/s,Entrance – 0.09m/s’Stabilization – 0.11m/s,Steady State – intake pipe V.
14 Meets and exceeds US EPA Standards The IH is hydraulically invisible to suspended materials, super slow entrance velocity (0.09 m/s max), absolute minimum of: Seaweed, Sand, Fish, Mussels, Trash & debrisMeets and exceeds US EPA StandardsRadial 3-D diffusion of effluent funneling out in multi directionality;High heat transfer rate allows quick attainment of equilibrium conditions and achieves the required dilution within the vicinity of the outfall;Ideal for power plant cooling water and RO brine discharge;Ideal for deep sea discharge of treated industrial and municipal effluents;Effluent and outfall pipe can be bundled with intake pipes to reduce construction costs.
15 The InvisiHead can be fitted directly to pump intake pipes to work as efficient strainers and outfalls in platforms and offshore installationsintakeEither hangingor outfall
16 The InvisiHead systems used as efficient and non clogging strainer intakeOr fixed to the sea flooror outfall
17 Any suspended solids flow into the intake pipe as part of the flow will settle near the upstream end of the NatSep.Clean high quality water flows into the pump chamber;Screening systems are completely eliminated;NatSep allows uninterrupted operation during cleanup;NatSep cleaned once in about 5 years for one day.
18 InvisiHead Intake Head Simple and NaturalInvisiHead Diffuser,From the Plant,Syphon ChamberThe AES system is all passive, screen-less and contains no moving parts. The system starts at the InvisiHead and ends at the NatSep as an intake and starts at siphon chamber and ends at the InvisiHead diffuser as an outfall. No O&M or any related expenses involved at the IH. We design the pipes to be self-cleansing. No bio growth or sediments and debris settlement inside the intake and discharge pipesTo Plant,Clean waterNatSep,Open Sea,InvisiHead Intake HeadHDPE or GRP,Elmosa, The Waves CompanyElmosa-American Eco Systems, LLC540 Centre St., Nutley, NJ 07110, USA T We at American Eco Systems we design seawater intakes and outfalls to be maintenance – free, to provide full flow capacity under all operation and weather conditions non-stop for over 50 yearsThe system is environmental-friendly and supports biodiversity, the 4-compartment NatSep delivers clean water to the pumps.
19 The InvisiHead makes money since no O&M is involved; it pays back its capital in a few months into operationElmosa proactive system operating expenses saved
20 No fish mortality+0$ on O&M = BTA. CONCLUSIONWhy the InvisiHead is a Best Technology Available BTA as designated by the US EPAFlow sequence: 4 phases:PHASE I. Approach starts at about 5m away from the entrance; streamlines take off stealthily from the seafloor at 0.002m/s-too slow to disturb or attract sediment, fish eggs, larvae, and debris;PHASE II. Entrance at 0.09m/s too slow to attract, fish, Jellyfish, seaweeds, sand and debris;PHASE III. Stabilization: IH outlet at 0.11m/s out of phase by 90 of local currents flow is much slower than the currents to let fish, Jellyfish, sediment and debris if the stray in they end up in the ambient again through the opposite end;PHASE IV. Steady State for clear naturally filtered high quality water to flow to the plant.No fish mortality+0$ on O&M = BTA.
