Fine Screening System: The More Intelligent Primary Clarifier
Fine Screening System: The More Intelligent Primary Clarifier

In the discussion about limited resources and energy saving in sewage treatment plants innovative sewage treatment methods are increasingly becoming a focal point. In Germany, there are about 1,200 sewage treatment plants which are designed for 10,000 to 50,000 PE, about one third of them have a sludge digester. Thus, there is a potential of about 800 sewage treatment plants that remains for a change from aerobic sludge stabilisation to processes with anaerobic sludge stabilization.

  • The Rotostrainer Joins The Craft Beer Revolution
    The Rotostrainer Joins The Craft Beer Revolution

    Spent hops and general brewery wastewater are natural by-products of the beer-making process and must be reused or disposed of accordingly. Some brewers are charged substantial fines for dumping high-solids wastewater into the city sewer system. With Parkson Rotostrainers, over 90% of the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) of wastewater can be filtered out, greatly reducing the city sewer charges. Many breweries can even sell much of the spent grain and other captured solids to local farms as livestock feed, thereby profiting on an otherwise ‘waste’ product.

    STRAINPRESS® Helps Fort Worth Turn A Liability Into An Asset

    Scum is not a substance that anyone in a wastewater treatment plants wants to deal with. Scum, the greasy substance that floats to the surface of clarifiers, gets nastier as it accumulates. Some smaller wastewater treatment plants mix their scum back into other processing streams while other larger plants treat their scum separately. The City of Fort Worth takes a unique approach in managing its scum and now turns what was once a liability into an asset.

  • Solving The Headworks Screening Challenge Of Fitting In Tight Spaces
    Solving The Headworks Screening Challenge Of Fitting In Tight Spaces

    Oostburg’s Black River Falls facility is a lean operation with limitations in space for screening technology and in the staff resources available to manage, maintain and report on the Village’s processes. Even though space was limited, Oostburg knew that putting a headworks screening solution in place would improve their operational efficiency. Oostburg found the perfect solution using the Huber Technology RoK4 confined space vertical screen.

  • Two Products Combine To Provide An Enhanced Nutrient Removal Advantage To Protect Our Waterways
    Two Products Combine To Provide An Enhanced Nutrient Removal Advantage To Protect Our Waterways

    Cherokee County, GA, conducted an extensive on-site pilot evaluation of several available process options and technologies, including various plate settler designs. Read the full case study to learn how enhanced nutrient removal (ENR) integrated design continues to deliver water quality of <0.1 mg/L Ammonia, <0.07 mg/L Phosphorus and <0.5 NTU. Not only does the WWTP consistently meet EPA direct discharge limits on BOD, Total Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Turbidity, but these final effluent values readily exceed surface water discharge permits levels.

Historic Town Remedies FOG Problem
Historic Town Remedies FOG Problem

Among the pump stations managed by Branford, CT, is a long-term problematic station located at Burban Street. There were two primary problems at this station: 1) clogging from modern day trash and raggy, stringy materials, and 2) fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from a nearby nursing home and restaurants, which accumulate and float on the water surface, resulting in a horrendous mess.

Drum Screen LIQUID Drum Screen LIQUID

The HUBER Drum Screen LIQUID is available in different designs and suitable for numerous applications of solids-liquid separation.

Duperon® Harvest FlexRake® Mechanically Cleaned Bar Screens Duperon® Harvest FlexRake® Mechanically Cleaned Bar Screens

The new Harvest FlexRake bar screen from Duperon is ideal for open channel applications with debris that is long, stringy, or matted, such as vegetation or algae. The mechanically simple design of the front-clean, rear-return bar screen uses proven FlexLink™ technology to effectively capture debris without entanglement or wrapping. The Harvest FlexRake screen can withstand side currents, backflow or channel turbulence, and the lower pump bore ensures mechanical engagement and eliminates debris bypass. The system offers a robust lifting capacity that can be customized based on the type of debris and application.

Duperon Washer Compactor Discharge Extension Option Duperon Washer Compactor Discharge Extension Option

The Duperon® Washer Compactor Discharge Extension Option transports compacted debris up to 40 feet in any direction, even vertically, without the energy usage, safety concerns, and layout challenges of a traditional motorized conveyance system. The Duperon exclusive Dual-Auger Washer Compactor™ moves debris using positive displacement, allowing gravity, not side-wall pressure, to provide consistent resistance for effective compaction. The chute, which is customized to the space, acts as a conveyor to guide the compacted debris to a remote receptacle. This solution not only eliminates maintenance requirements but also provides an innovative method for managing compacted screenings without additional equipment.

HUBER Grit Trap GritWolf® HUBER Grit Trap GritWolf®

The aerated grit trap is a very important element in mechanical wastewater treatment. Its task is not only to reliably remove the grit from the wastewater flow but also to retain particulate lipophilic substances (grease) to prevent floatable particles from settling or overflowing in downstream treatment systems.

Monster Wash Press Monster Wash Press

JWC Environmental’s Monster Wash Press (MWP) cleans and compacts the discharge from headworks screens, separating water and organics from the solids.  It features a Muffin Monster® grinder to pre-condition screenings before entering the Monster Wash Press.  The grinder breaks open rags, plastics and trash to promote washing and removal of soft organics.  The patent-pending paddle rotor in the active wash zone agitates the material to enhance water penetration throughout the debris for even better removal of the organics from the solids.  Organics are washed back into the wastewater treatment process and the solids are compacted into a dry, less odorous solid plug.  The Monster Wash Press is designed for easy maintenance.  The rotor and field replaceable screen can be removed via the top of the unit, minimizing the clearance space needed around the unit during maintenance.  A grinderless version of the Monster Wash Press is also available.

Monster Metal™ Monster Metal™

Monster Metal™ is an abrasion and corrosion resistant cutter alloy. It is a steel alloy with the perfect balance of carbon for strength with a Rockwell HRc of 55-60 and chromium for corrosion resistance typically associated with stainless steel. Monster Metal is available on 30004T and 30005 Muffin Monsters®, CMD-XD2.0 and CDDXD2.0 Channel Monsters® and the 3-HYDRO-IX and 3-HYDRO-C.   Monster Metal offers a longer life with at least double the life of typical industry cutters paired with a 5-year extended limited warranty.
