The Wastewater Challenges Of Floating Cabins
By Bio-Microbics, Inc.
British Columbia’s fly-in recreational fishing lodge industry was threatened by federal regulators to be closed or fined up to $200,000 unless their wastewater was treated. NOMADIC™ kept them open and operating.


Ion Exchange Resins And Activated Carbons For Better-Tasting Water
By Jacobi Carbons Inc.
For many, access to good-tasting tap water is limited, and buying bottled water can be expensive. Simple pour-through jug filters offer a low-cost and effective alternative. Activated carbons, in conjunction with ion exchange products, produce drinking water that is absent of all industrial pesticides and contaminants.


Cold Weather Doesn't Stop Denitrification System
By Severn Trent Services
For more than three decades, wastewater treatment plants have faced increasingly stringent regulations regarding total maximum loads for nutrient discharges. During that period, deep bed denitrification filters have proven to be an effective treatment technology used by wastewater plants to meet low total nitrogen (TN) limits. But cold water temperatures in more northern locales have proven to be a challenge to the effectiveness of the denitrification process.


Rugged Screening Design Offers Built-In Overflow System
By IPEC
A Midwest beef processing plant had installed wedge wire screening to reduce the solids loading to the flotation unit. A problem arose with the screen design resulting in the occasional overflow of the screen during flow upsets or during partial screen blinding.

Pump-Efficiency Killers (And What To Do About Them)
Did you know that 85 percent of the average pump’s life-cycle cost is spent on energy? While capital cost considerations often rule the day, the up-front cost of a water distribution pump is actually only 5 percent of the total, with the remaining 10 percent going toward maintenance. A bit more maintenance, however, could greatly enhance energy efficiency.
