Trinity River Authority Increases Filtration Capacity And Decreases Backwash By Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc.
After many years of operation Trinity River Authority (TRA) had several filters that required full rehabilitation due to mechanical and performance degradation. TRA chose to retrofit the existing traveling bridge sand filters with AquaDiamond® cloth media filters in order to remedy its concerns.
Extreme Water Filtration : High-Flow Systems Save Costs And Reduce Waste By Robert LeConche, President, Shelco Filters
In an era when everything is done to the extreme — from sports, to home makeovers, to weather predictions — it should come as no surprise that the world of water filtering has joined the crowd. “Extreme” filtering, so to speak, is achieved through the use of high-flow cartridge systems — smaller designs that are able to handle much higher water volumes and pressures at lower costs and with less maintenance.
Media Vs. Membranes: What Is The Next Generation In Water Filtration? By Michael Dejak, P.Eng.
There is a need in many segments of the oil and gas production industry for an improvement in water filtration over traditional methods. This is especially true since the trend in oil and gas production is toward tighter, less permeable reservoirs and greater use of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques, many of which involve injecting water into oil reservoirs.
Paper Facility Increases Efficiency With Filter Rehabilitation By Leopold -- A Xylem Brand
The Biron mill located in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin produces approximately 370,000 tons of paper each year. The plant was originally designed in the 1950’s with a filtration system comprised of ten filter cells. Four dual cell filters were retrofitted with Leopold clay tile underdrains in the early 1980’s. In late 2012, production capacity issues arose with several of the clay tile filters at the mill.
This video features an inside look at how TRITON Underdrain Systems benefit operators, contractors, and consulting engineers alike. Watch the animated product showcase to find out details about simple installation, savings in filter height and volume during filtration, and how the backwash cycles enable reduced water consumption and lower power costs.
The Smith & Loveless Duplex Gravity Filter (DGF) and its counterpart, the Integral DGF, remove suspended solids and particles, improving effluent quality. The standard system is available in sizes to fit any application, providing up to 200 square feet (18.6 square meters) of effective filtration area per unit.
