Monitoring ultra-low levels of silica throughout the treatment process helps manage efficiency and reduce downtime by avoiding costly shutdowns and repairs. Learn how to protect your plant against the introduction of harmful levels of silica.
Next-Generation Mag Meter Helps Resolve Non-Revenue Water By McCrometer
Davidson Water Inc., located in Lexington, NC, is one of the largest membership cooperatives financed by USDA Rural Development. At present, Davidson Water has a plant capacity of 20 million gallons per day (MGD). To serve the future needs of its customers, an additional 15-MGD plant is currently under construction, bringing total plant capacity to 35 MGD.
From Rags To Riches: Chopper Pump Gets It Done By Vaughan Company
The North Tahoe Public Utility District (NTPUD) serves residents and vacationers in the Lake Tahoe area. Vaughan Company provided a 50-HP, 1750-RPM model PE4P6CS-118 vertical pedestal chopper pump for the Carnelian Bay Pump Station to replace an existing pedestal pump that was having difficulty with ragging. The Vaughan pump was intended to be driven by a variable frequency drive (VFD) to provide 1150 GPM at 84' TDH at less than 1750 RPM, but because of costs the VFD was eliminated from the project.
The Building Blocks Of A Restrained Pipeline System By EBAA Iron Sales, Inc.
The most significant factor used to counteract thrust in a pipeline at horizontal bends and tees is the bearing resistance of the soil. The bearing resistance of the soil is realized as passive pressure and is generated as the pipeline attempts to separate and move into the soil. This is the same resistance as that realized by the back side of a thrust block.
WWTP Takes Integrated Biological Approach To Reduce Construction Costs, Improve Effluent Quality By Siemens Industry, Inc. - Water Technologies
The BioFlowsheet+ Solution from Siemens Water Technologies analyzes an existing system to evaluate how the system can be improved to meet a variety of new and updated effluent parameters. SWT would recommend a total process solution by which additional capacity may be achieved, effluent parameters would be improved to a high level of performance, tankage usage would be maximized, guarantees provided on the process, and there would be power consumption and solids reduction capabilities.

Quechan Casino Resort, a 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.
Extraction of heavy oil often involves the production of steam for injection into the formation (steam flooding, cyclic steam, SAGD). In order to minimize or eliminate the consumption of fresh water to feed steam generators, produced water is often treated and conditioned to a quality suitable for feed to a steam generator.
