Drinking Water Disinfection Podcasts

  1. Ozonia M and FiltraFast Provide New Options For Treatment Facilities
    11/20/2017

    If you don’t need the performance of an ultrafiltration membrane but also want to avoid the large footprint of a conventional media filter, you might want to consider FiltraFast extreme rate compressible media filters. As Ryan Hess, Director of Advanced Separation with SUEZ Water Technologies suggests in this Water Talk interview, “They provide roughly ten times the hydraulic loading rate of conventional media filters.”

  2. Is UV Poised For Increased Adoption?
    7/23/2014

    Disinfection can be achieved through chlorine, membranes, ozonation, or UV (among others), but the latter may be best equipped to serve the changing water treatment market.

  3. On Site Hydrogen Peroxide Generation for Advanced Oxidation Process
    7/6/2016

    Vitamins, steroids and hormones are all emerging as contaminants being detected in drinking water supplies. As Jon McClean, Chief Technology Officer with Neptune Benson explains in this Water Online Radio interview, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) add hydrogen peroxide in front of UV treatment to eradicate contamination.

  4. Experience Pays Off For Gas Injection
    7/10/2017

    When it comes to gas injection, it pays to work with an experienced manufacturer that has lived the ups and downs of moving from pilots to full-scale plants. A number of years ago, Mazzei Injector Company ran into an issue where the engineer had specified a system at 2 psi of water pressure.

  5. Safer Disinfection With Peracetic Acid
    1/10/2014

    John Maziuk, Technical Development Manager at Solvay Chemicals, discusses the benefits of peracetic acid over other wastewater and stormwater disinfection methods, including no harmful byproducts, a simpler process, and a longer shelf life.

  6. UV Disinfection With LEDs
    11/10/2014

    UV LEDs offer the chemical free disinfection of traditional UV while avoiding mercury lamps. In certain applications where customers are concerned about the potential hazards of mercury contamination in the water from a broken lamp, UV LEDs are interesting because they don’t contain any mercury content at all.

  7. UVT-LED Sheds Light On UV Disinfection
    10/28/2015

    Learn why measuring UV transmittance is so important to efficient disinfection, and how LED helps get you there.

  8. Microbial Contamination Monitoring For Water Distribution Systems
    7/5/2017

    Back in 2014, Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals wrote an executive order for municipalities to boost their chlorine residuals as high as possible to burn off all biofilm and stop the outbreak of brain-eating amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) that had been detected as the cause of death in a number of individuals.

  9. Understanding The Benefits Of Chlorination
    10/4/2013

    Fletcher Roche, Product Manager at Evoqua Water Technologies, explains why chlorine gas is a safe and cost-effective disinfection solution.

  10. UV Examined (Audio)
    8/1/2013

    Adam Festger, Market Manager, Drinking Water and Environmental Contaminant Treatment for TrojanUV, highlights some of advances in UV technology over the last few years including UV groundwater treatment, UV chemical contamination treatment and UV lamp efficiency.
