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.

  • Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor Technology Validated For Title 22 Compliance
    Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor Technology Validated For Title 22 Compliance

    Title 22 of California’s Water Recycling Criteria is among the strictest water treatment standards for water recycling and reuse in the United States. Fluence’s MABR demonstration plant was installed at the Codiga Resource Recovery Center (CR2C) in Stanford, California, in January 2018 for the purpose of third-party evaluation. The testing parameters included criteria to evaluate reliable enhanced nutrient removal in the form of Total Nitrogen, which is increasingly important across the United States and difficult and costly to achieve through conventional wastewater treatment.

  • Australian Cities Adopt Wastewater Reuse
    Australian Cities Adopt Wastewater Reuse

    Potable reuse of wastewater has gone by many different names, some of them unflattering, like “toilet to tap.” Despite the clear benefits of water reuse, this so-called “ick factor” has slowed the adoption of technology that can transform wastewater into drinking water.

  • Water Quality Testing: Solutions From Catchment To Waste
    Water Quality Testing: Solutions From Catchment To Waste

    Globally, over 80% of the wastewater generated by society flows back into the environment without being treated or reused. Clean water is an essential part of daily life, from catchment all the way through to wastewater treatment, therefore analysis throughout the whole cycle is crucial. Whether in lakes, pipes, or bottles, we can accompany you with our range of instruments, test kits and applications for your water and wastewater needs.

  • What Is The Connection Between Reclaimed Water, Agriculture, And Filtration?
    What Is The Connection Between Reclaimed Water, Agriculture, And Filtration?

    The case for using reclaimed water is strong. Water has become an increasingly valuable (and often rare) resource, and every drop counts. As potable water sources become harder to find and access, people are moving to alternative sources such as non-potable fresh water, brackish sources, or reclaiming treated effluent rather than disposing of it.

Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Software For Soft Drinks and Breweries Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Software For Soft Drinks and Breweries

The Soft Drinks and Breweries businesses are characterized by high production volumes and the two major production steps of processing and packaging. Beverage categories, especially breweries, include additional functions like fermentation control and optimization, water treatment and energy optimization. Large soft drink manufacturers have started to integrate syrup preparation with packaging to better respond to shifting consumer demands. Volatile commodity and packing material costs representing up to 40 percent of revenues make scrap, rework or downgraded product expensive. In this highly consolidated industry, responding to shifting consumer tastes, maintaining operational efficiency and minimizing waste are critical.

The system works by infusing the dust particles with water. The unique process mixes the two through a fixed-position dual opposed blade system. Once the dust-laden airstream and liquid are mixed, a tangential airstream is injected through the lower blade assembly to increase turbulence.

Peripheral Drive Clarifiers Peripheral Drive Clarifiers

Schreiber’s Peripheral Drive Clarifiers are favored because of their ability to accomplish rapid sludge removal and continuous collection and removal of floatables. Instead of the typical center-drive high torque arrangement, Schreiber Clarifiers utilize the mechanical leverage and mechanical simplicity of a peripherally driven system. A low horsepower single drive unit is all that is needed to rotate both the scraper and the skimming assemblies. The assemblies are suspended from a rotating access bridge or, in the case of smaller units, a lightweight rotating beam arm. The rotating skimming equipment removes floatables regardless of wind direction, and the helical scrapers convey settled solids to the center of the basin for removal in one revolution or less.

    The phrase “Necessity is the mother of invention” has been definitively traced back to early 16th century England, and even attributed to Plato in the Latin form, “Mater artium necessitas.” In today’s world of water, necessity is also becoming a major factor in rising interest regarding potable water reuse. This is especially true in areas where changes in climate or usage demands have stressed traditional sources of supply, as evidenced by increasing numbers of applications worldwide. For those who work in a water-stressed environment, this article can provide added perspective on specific points of opportunity — and points of caution.
