Flygt Xylem will hold a live webinar titled “Mixing Best Practices: The Latest Ideas in Low-Speed Variable Mixing” Friday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to noon (ET).

Xylem officials say they often hear “the only constant over time is change,” and mixing best practices are following the same trend.

“The overarching goals of mixing in wastewater treatment have stayed constant, although the best way to achieve those objectives has evolved over time,” said a Xylem spokesperson. “Fortunately, the options keep getting more reliable, effective and efficient.”

During this webinar, Xylem will build on what was shared during the November 2016 session from Flygt, and will introduce new insights from the most recent testing in ultra-low energy mixing.
