Do We Have To Sacrifice Performance To Be Green? By Karen Lindsey, V.P. Operations, Avista Technologies, Inc.
The global use of membranes is widespread in municipal, industrial, and wastewater applications with reverse osmosis, and has proven to be a highly effective and reliable method of advanced water treatment. Reuse applications have been particularly challenging for water treatment chemical companies as these highly variable feedwaters can contain any imaginable constituent, resulting in a wide array of site-specific foulants.
MBR For Wastewater Reuse: A Safe Bet By Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc.
A newly constructed gaming facility located on Native American land in Winterhaven, CA, began its wastewater treatment operations in January 2009. Early into the project development, it was decided that the Aqua-Aerobic MBR membrane bioreactor system was the optimum solution due to its small footprint, high-quality effluent, and low-energy consumption.
Statoil Tests Optimize Desalination Plant For Polymer Flooding Project By Membrana
This technical brief describes a pilot unit designed to evaluate the use of Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors in deoxygenating low salinity water used in polymer flooding to improve offshore oil reservoir recovery rates. The plant featured an ultrafiltration pre-treatment unit followed by nanofiltration and deoxygenation. The test results shown indicate that membrane contactors will not significantly increase complexity in a seawater membrane treatment process.
Ceramic Membranes Offer Filtration Flexibility CeraQ ceramic membranes from QUA are capable of removing virus, bacteria, colloidal matter, submicron or micron sized suspended particles, oil and organics from a wide range of fluids, including drinking water and industrial wastewater to economically meet variety of treatment objectives or to recycle and reuse wastewater.
Maximizing revenue, improving system efficiency, and reducing nonrevenue water losses are all top priorities of every water system manager. Help address these concerns, and enjoy many other benefits, by installing the Octave Ultrasonic water meter by Master Meter.
New system engineers value meter positioning flexibility and shortened pipe runs, which reduce overall footprints and capital expenses. When upgrading existing systems, the ability to easily install flow meters without extensive mechanical work and line disruptions is critical to quickly achieving low-cost enhancements.
Sludge Set is used to rapidly solidify or modify the viscosity of various water-based sludge produced from wastewater treatment operations to enable easy disposal. It is extremely effective for slurry solutions encountered in environmental remediation projects.
