ANITA™ Mox is a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) for treating wastewater with high ammonia concentrations (200 to 2,000 mg/L), provided exclusively by Kruger, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies. With patented controls, ANITA Mox removes nitrogen from sidestreams — such as those from anaerobic digesters — with 60 percent less air than conventional nitrification and no supplemental carbon. This significantly reduces the energy need and cost of operations.
City Saves Money And Energy With Real-Time Control System By Hach Company
The wastewater treatment plant in the city of Grand Rapids was looking to reduce aeration energy costs and recently upgraded the facility with a Hach Real-Time Control System. The result was a nearly $60,000 energy efficiency incentive payment from Consumers Energy, and the plant is now on track to save the city more than 735,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and $62,000 annually.
Removal Of DBPs With Activated Carbon By Jacobi Carbons Inc.
In order to reduce the formation of harmful disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in drinking water, alternative disinfectant use has become increasingly widespread. Monochloramine is a leading alternative disinfectant that offers advantages for municipal water. This tech brief details the removal of monochloramine using activated carbon.
How To Buy Right, Not Cheap, When It Comes To Solids-Handling Pumps By The Gorman-Rupp Company
Companies using solids-handling pumps as part of their processes know that even though the pumps are typically moving trash and other waste products, the type of equipment used can be a huge business decision.

FCI's VeriCal In-Situ calibration verification system gives you the ability to perform periodic field validation and verification of your FCI flow meter's measuring performance without extracting the meter from the pipe or process. This video illustrates the VeriCal procedure and ease of sensor installation.
Constant Chlor Plus Briquettes provide a chlorine solution for use in many applications including the treatment of surface and groundwater for municipal drinking water use, as well as the treatment of wastewater effluent.
MoVap provides a mobile solution to treat flowback water on-site at the well pad area to yield an ultra clean water with total dissolved solids (TDS) less than 500 ppm. This enables recycle and reuse without the need for costly trucking to off-site treatment facilities and enables the reduction of wastewater volumes for further reduced costs for disposal.
Peak series ozone systems from Pinnacle Ozone have been designed for municipal, commercial, industrial, and food and beverage users that require ozone to be delivered in a specific output rate with no deviation or shut down.
Glenn Wadden, President of Trihedral, explains how today’s SCADA systems are intuitive to learn for remote plant operators and capable of providing feedback that can reduce cost and increase efficiency.
