Automation 101: What Every Operator Should Know A Q&A with Craig Correia, Festo Corporation
Without a doubt, automation in water/wastewater plant operations is a growing trend. It makes sense, given the need for accuracy and reliability in today’s regulatory environment, coupled with the reduced manpower attributable to short budgets and a retiring workforce. But many plants have done quite well with the status quo, so what’s to convince them to change? Even then, how does one get started, and what are the cost implications?
Simulation In The Water And Wastewater Industries By Emerson Process Management, Power & Water Solutions
Until recently, simulation was perceived by many to be out of reach for the water and wastewater industries due to its expense and the complexity of the technology. However, ongoing technological advances have overcome these two obstacles, driving down costs and making the technology easier to implement.
UV Installation Proves All Lamps Are Not Created Equal By WEDECO -- A Xylem Brand
Summerville, GA, a small city in the northwestern part of the state and the county seat of Chattanooga County, built their 2-MGD wastewater treatment plant in 1967. During an upgrade in 2008, the city’s consulting engineers recommended abandoning chemical disinfection in favor of replacing it with a WEDECO UV system.
4 Ways To Minimize Filter Costs And Maintain Machinery Health By Aerzen
In an ideal world, would we not want to eliminate air filters altogether? What keeps us from achieving this is foreign material, detrimental to air, which moves rotating equipment. Meanwhile, the process that receives the air sometimes cannot tolerate it.
Step One In Regulating Pollutants: Assess Whether It Is Technologically Achievable By Thacher Worthen, President, Schreiber LLC
Each state is on its own with regard to nutrient standards, and even within each state, localities are developing their own standards. The permit writers at a given office can have differing interpretations of the permit guidelines and how to write them based off the technology they have been presented. This leads to a very fragmented and diverse spectrum of standards, from the unachievable to the immeasurable.
ecoTop is designed to separate nonemulsified light liquids or low-water-soluble fluids with specific gravity below 0.95 — such as gasoline, diesel, heating oils, and other mineral oils. The separated oil is automatically removed from the water surface and collected in an internal or external oil recipient.
Dif-Jet Aeration Systems feature low cost, high efficiency, and are suitable for industrial wastewater systems to reduce BOD or COD and supplemental aeration. Other applications include gold mining, aquaculture, pulp and paper, and food plants.
The Screenings Washer Monster is a self-contained, hopper-fed system used to effectively grind, wash, compact, and dewater screenings that have been captured by a bar screen or other screenings removal device.
