  • CASPERON Solution Brings Process, Operation And Cost Benefits To Michigan Facility
    CASPERON Solution Brings Process, Operation And Cost Benefits To Michigan Facility

    For 15 years, plans to double the capacity of Michigan’s Zeeland Clean Water Plant remained stalled as the City of Zeeland worked toward a joint wastewater treatment contract with two neighboring Ottawa County communities. As a result, maintaining efficient aeration control posed a challenge for the 1.65 million gallons per day (MGD) facility. When expansion plans moved forward in 2016, the city alleviated those problems with the Xylem Sanitaire CASPERON activated sludge solution process, which eliminated the use of lime to treat waste and significantly reduced the volume of biosolid residuals.

    Parkson Turnkey Services Allow Customer To Get What They Want

    A wastewater plant in Florida originally had one Parkson Aqua Guard® Self-Cleaning Moving Media Screen in operation for approximately 19 years. When the city expanded, a new headworks plant was built in 2009. At this time, two (2) new screens were purchased from a competitor based on cost through a bid process to contractors.

  • Reduce Electricity Costs By Putting More Energy Into Data Analysis
    Reduce Electricity Costs By Putting More Energy Into Data Analysis

    With electricity consumption being a primary operating cost in water treatment and wastewater treatment, steps taken to optimize energy use are critical. Saving energy is more than just an on/off decision. Monitoring and managing energy use — from analyzing pump curves, to reducing non-revenue-water leaks, to scheduling operations around premium-rate windows — is essential. Fortunately, the payback potential can be impressive.

  • Optimal CO2 Metering Solution Critical To Enhanced Oil Recovery
    Optimal CO2 Metering Solution Critical To Enhanced Oil Recovery

    To combat production declines at aging oil wells, oil and gas companies turn to enhanced oil recovery to optimize output. Some of those methods are dependent on collecting CO2 from gas operations and holding it underground — also known as carbon capture and storage — until needed. The ability to accurately measure CO2 in these processes is critical.

  • Vacuum Primed Pump Stations Vs. Self-Priming Pumping Stations
    Vacuum Primed Pump Stations Vs. Self-Priming Pumping Stations

    Both Smith & Loveless Vacuum Primed Pump Stations and competing self-priming stations are able to prime themselves by pulling water into the pump volute. However, the vacuum prime design of S&L EVERLAST™ Wet Well Mounted Pump Stations and Recessed Wet Well Mounted Pump Stations offer better performance, maintainability and reliability compared to self-priming competitors. Click to read some of the reasons why the Smith & Loveless pump station and its vacuum prime pump are superior.

  • 12-Year Cost Study Compares CAPEX/OPEX For 53 Pump Stations
    12-Year Cost Study Compares CAPEX/OPEX For 53 Pump Stations

    Asset management is critical in maintaining and evaluating equipment crucial to the successful operation of a utility. A key aspect is the collection of complete, meaningful data for each piece of equipment and the ability to easily evaluate the data. A utility in Kansas implemented a system to collect data from their wastewater pump stations and logged labor hours, material costs, and outside contractor costs. From this data, they can establish a predictive maintenance schedule, budget for station repair and/or replacement based on return on investment, establish a benchmark for the cost of maintaining a typical station, compare the cost to operate and maintain different types of stations, etc.

SPECIAL FEATURES

The UV Advanced Oxidation Process (UV AOP) is when ultraviolet light, alone or in combination with an oxidant, destroys chemical contaminants in water. If you have a problem contaminant that cannot easily be removed with processes like microfiltration, granular activated carbon or reverse osmosis, then UV AOP might just be the ideal solution.
