Tetra Denite® from Severn Trent Services is a proven filtration technology used in the denitrification process. As both a bioreactor and effluent filter, the Tetra Denite system combines deep bed filtration and fixed-film biological denitrification to achieve a high level of process synergy. Simultaneous removal of total suspended solids and effluent NO3-N of less than 1 ppm allows facilities to achieve 3 ppm total nitrogen or less.

How To Control Activated Sludge With Online Sensors
By Dr. Robert Smith, Ph.D., P.E., BCEE, YSI, a Xylem brand
The focus of this article is the use of online instrumentation for control of wastewater treatment aeration. Once considered the weakest link of ICA, instrumentation is no longer a major barrier due to recent technological breakthroughs.


Odor Control Demonstration: City Of Houston
By BlueInGreen
In December of 2012, BlueInGreen successfully completed an odor-control demonstration project for the City of Houston. Part of this effort included effectively injecting oxygen — via a supersaturated side-stream process — into the City of Houston collection system to prevent and eliminate the formation of hydrogen sulfide.


Biosphere Moving Bed Biological System Achieves Total Nitrogen Compliance Without Additional Tanks
By Siemens Industry, Inc. - Water Technologies
A new TMDL mandated that the City of Neptune Beach reduce nitrogen discharges from its 1.5-MGD wastewater facility from 70,000 pounds to 13,000 pounds per year. To reach this 80 percent reduction, a total effluent discharge of 3 mg/L total nitrogen needed to be achieved.


Advances In MBR: Biological Treatment With Enviroquip And 'Biohydraulics'
By Ovivo
At times, treating more flow than any other MBR system in the world, the Delphos plant is the second largest plant in the United States in terms of its rated capacity of 6 MGD. Since startup in September 2006, the plant has already been put through its paces and demonstrated its capability to reliably meet permit limits.

WERF Program Gives New Water Technology A 'LIFT'
When it comes to technology, the water industry is cautious. The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), working with the Water Environment Federation (WEF), is trying to speed things up. The two organizations created the Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology, or LIFT, a joint initiative to generate innovation and help move new technology rapidly into practice.

Make Your Treatment Operations More Efficient

Aeration accounts for 30 to 70 percent of the total energy consumption at a typical wastewater treatment facility. With rising energy costs, and stricter environmental regulations, plant operators need help to make their operations more efficient and ensure high-quality discharge water. Sanitaire’s Gold Series membrane diffusers have been designed to deliver superior energy efficiency, and can lower energy consumption by 20 percent over conventional, fine-bubble systems.
