WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Linking Technologies Key To A Successful Potable Reuse Project
Linking Technologies Key To A Successful Potable Reuse Project

Potable reuse offers a massive opportunity to recover water from the wastewater process, but projects face a variety of barriers to getting off the ground. Most successful early adopters engaged early with their constituents and implemented smaller-scale demonstration projects that were accessible to the public to prove the technology and process.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Advanced Diagnostics of Thermal Mass Flow Meters
    Advanced Diagnostics of Thermal Mass Flow Meters

    Many thermal mass flow meters are of the insertion type. As a starting point, proper insertion depth and straight run per the manufacturer’s recommendations should be adhered to.

  • Air Bearing Advantages In High-Speed Turbo Blowers
    Air Bearing Advantages In High-Speed Turbo Blowers

    When it comes to the challenge of running high-speed turbo blowers at 40,000 rpm in the unforgiving environment of a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), robust design goes a long way toward accommodating extreme physical demands with minimal maintenance and overhead costs.

  • Bar Screen Capture Rates: It’s Not So Simple
    Bar Screen Capture Rates: It’s Not So Simple

    The water industry has made progress in developing numerical values for screen-capture ratings under specific conditions. One such example is the UK Water Industry Research (UK WIR) standard. Its methodology is sound in measuring capture rate for a specific screen in a channel for a specific time and set of conditions. However, the measurements provided in these studies cannot be assumed to represent the performance of that screen in any other wastewater treatment plant or even in the same channel in a different time or season.

  • Pharmaceutical Effluent Recycling In India
    Pharmaceutical Effluent Recycling In India

    A renowned pharmaceutical company in Pune, India, installed a water treatment system to recycle pharmaceutical process wastewater for reuse. Ultrafiltration was chosen as pretreatment to a reverse osmosis system, and the feed water was tertiary treated pharma effluent.  Soon after operation began, the existing UF membranes were repeatedly choking, and QUA of­fered Q-SEP ultrafiltration modules to the customer to replace the existing UF membranes.

  • Carbon Dioxide For pH Control Of Landfill Leachate
    Carbon Dioxide For pH Control Of Landfill Leachate

    A landfill operator’s leachate treatment plant in Missouri required pH reduction following lime-softening and prior to the biological wastewater treatment process. Carbon dioxide (CO2) was chosen as a substitute for sulfuric acid due to improved process control and a reduced tendency to form scale.

  • Minimizing Energy Use At Pump Stations With Extreme Variable Flows
    Minimizing Energy Use At Pump Stations With Extreme Variable Flows

    Every spring, the wastewater municipality in Dalarna, Sweden, experienced melting snow and heavy rainfall that caused a dramatic increase in pump station inflow. To handle this seasonal volume, the station had oversized pumps that consumed more energy than needed during drier months. This case study illustrates how the installation of a variable-speed pump controller decreased energy consumption by almost 50 percent while allowing for variations in flow.

Submersible Pumps Submersible Pumps
Gorman-Rupp offers over 400 submersible pump models, including submersible pumps for open pits and quarries, drilled wells and narrow openings, and solids-handling models for slurries and debris-laden models.
Denitrification Featuring Snap-T® Block Underdrain Denitrification Featuring Snap-T® Block Underdrain

The DE NORA TETRA™ Denite® system combines denitrification and filtration for the effective removal of nitrate-nitrogen and suspended solids in a single treatment step. Unique SNAP-T® Block underdrain provides superior distribution of backwash air and water, resulting in more efficient bed cleaning and reduced filter operating costs. Revolutionary interlocking grid design has no moving parts and resists uplift without the need for grout or anchors.

Aeration System Aeration System

ClearBlu Environmental focuses on complete aerobic digestion of organic waste. This process is desirable over anaerobic digestion because it is fast, odor free, and prevents the need for any solids removal procedures. Aerobic digestion is desirable over DAF systems because it eliminates the need for costly chemical use and disposal. ClearBlu uses a unique aeration technology known as microbubble aeration, to achieve an aquatic environment which supports a bacteria population capable of complete digestion.  This is the key difference over conventional technologies.

    How Can We Start The Journey To Smart Water Networks?

    In the developed world, potable water is delivered to people via a complex infrastructure consisting of water catchment, water treatment, water storage (reservoirs, towers), and water distribution (pipes). The first two elements are well understood; what is less understood is what happens to water as it journeys to the tap.
