Eliminate The Need To Expand Major Treatment Units At Your Plant

Eliminate The Need To Expand Major Treatment Units At Your Plant

The Sanitaire DrumFilter, a tertiary filtration system, can be easily integrated into any new or existing wastewater treatment plant scheme. With more stringent effluent requirements being mandated from regulatory agencies, wastewater treatment plants need cost-effective, highly-efficient solutions. Title 22 certified, this cloth media filter complies with the most stringent regulations. With low headloss requirements, plants can integrate this tertiary treatment unit into their existing hydraulic profile easily without compromising excess footprint.

Spotlight On Nutrient Removal

Familiar Technology Aids One One Of The World's Most Fragile Ecosystems
By Severn Trent Services
The long-term health of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, called by some “one of the world’s most fragile ecosystems,” has been well documented for decades. Excess runoff and discharges of nutrients have fueled the growth of algae blooms that impact water quality and aquatic life.


Sewer Authority Ends Plant Bypasses And Introduces Nutrient Removal With New Treatment Process
By Sanitaire -- A Xylem Brand
Find out how a treatment plant upgraded its secondary treatment aeration system to include nutrient removal through a nitrification/denitrification/phosphorus process and has successfully processed I&I induced surges that reached a 10-MGD peak.


State-Of-The-Art Denitrification, Aeration, And Disinfection: Howard County Sets The Pace For Restoring The Chesapeake
By Leopold -- A Xylem Brand
Howard County, MD, recently completed the $92-million Little Patuxent Water Reclamation Plant to improve the quality of the plant’s effluent discharge and to reduce harmful nutrients reaching Chesapeake Bay. The project incorporated innovative design solutions and technologies for denitrification, aeration, and disinfection.


Superior Effluent Quality With Batch Reactor Technology
Changing effluent demands are a common challenge for wastewater treatment plant operators. The AquaSBR sequencing batch reactor provides an adaptive solution, delivering enhanced biological nutrient removal (EBNR) with flexible design and process control. Watch this video to see a 3D animation.

'Peecycle' Please: Will Urine Separation For Nutrient Recovery Take Off?
Is it feasible to separate nutrient-rich urine before it reaches the wastewater treatment plant? It might be a pipe dream, but researchers are investigating the potential of keeping urine separate from the rest of the wastewater we humans produce.
