Filtering Through The Latest In Primary Wastewater Treatment
A Q&A With Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc.

Of course, the whole wastewater treatment equation starts with primary treatment. Although a critical first step in the process, primary treatment rarely receives as much attention from innovators as processes further down the line. It’s about time that changed.

Vortisand Cross-Flow Submicron Filtration Systems
From Evoqua Water Technologies

Vortisand systems are synonymous with water filtration, serving the industrial water markets since 1986. The award-winning Vortisand is a high-efficiency microsand filtration system. It is a high-capacity media filter that combines cross-flow dynamics with microsand media to achieve submicron filtration performance. This technology allows the unit to operate at filtration rates of up to five times greater than those of traditional media filters, while filtering 10 to 50 times finer.

All-Natural Biofilm Media Derived From Plant Stock Enhances Clarifier Settling
A Q&A With Smith & Loveless, Inc.

When clarifiers are not settling like they should, problems arise, including reduced capacities, high sludge volume indexes (SVI) and sludge blanket levels, and infiltration/inflow (I/I) washout issues. Ballasting chemical additives utilized to alleviate these problems can be time-consuming, costly, and potentially hazardous.
