How Chemistry And Mechanics Deliver Cost-Effective Waste Treatment
Polymer chemistry is one of the leading considerations when designing a sludge thickening system. The right polymer chemistry contributes to more effective thickening at a lower cost. However, the right chemistry must also be complemented by mechanical processes that enable the chemistry to work effectively. Waste treatment equipment manufacturer IPEC collaborated with polymer suppliers for extensive lab trials to design a waste activated sludge (WAS) thickening system for the City of Brockville, a city of more than 23,000 people located in the southeastern part of Ontario, Canada. The rotary drum system is capable of thickening 5.25 I/second of 0.55 percent municipal sludge to up to 7 percent solids.
Application Note: IPEC Replaces Failed Screen At Beef Processing Plant
A Midwest beef slaughter operation, which processes 550 head of cattle per day, had installed wedge wire screening ahead of their DAF to reduce the solids loading to the flotation unit. By IPEC
Case Study: Durango Wastewater Treatment Plant Foils Energy Heist And Lowers Maintenance Costs The Durango wastewater treatment facility is a traditional waste-activated system. The bio-solids (WAS) is collected from secondary clarifiers, treated with flocculants and thickened before an anaerobic digestion. A centrifuge had been used for the thickening process which dewatered the WAS to a 8 to 10% consistency. The plant had three 50 hp units and used either one or two of the units as needed
Case Study: Wastewater Treatment Plant Protecting Wilderness With Membrane Bioreactor Technology
When it came time to design a new wastewater treatment plant for Field, the seasonal rise in population during the summer months added to the challenge of meeting Parks Canada's stringent mountain effluent targets. The goal of the new wastewater treatment plant was to protect this pristine wilderness area by setting the effluent target as close as possible to the natural composition of the receiving water bodies. With this in mind, Parks Canada reviewed the latest in advanced treatment technology and opted for a membrane bioreactor system
ABOUT IPEC CONSULTANTS LTD.
IPEC Consultants Ltd., a privately-owned Canadian company, has been designing and manufacturing quality wastewater treatment equipment since 1979. The sturdy, low-maintenance equipment is widely accepted for effective, economical treatment of process and wastewater streams.
For nearly 30 years, IPEC screening equipment has been used for liquid/solid separation in the meat, poultry, fish, vegetable, and pulp & paper industries. Now, IPEC's growing municipal market uses IPEC screens for primary, fine, and scum screening applications, as well as for sludge thickening.
Over the past 10 years, IPEC has added in-channel screens, grit classifiers, screw conveyors and conveyor/compactor units to its product line. The engineering and design department is available to assist with wastewater screening solutions as environmental regulations become more stringent.
IPEC operates with an in-house sales force and an international network of representatives to ensure that clients are offered the most efficient and economical screening solutions.
For pretreatment of municipal and industrial effluent, IPEC Industries offers its proven IFU/PLT combination. The IFU internally-fed, rotary fine screen removes all particles larger than the target size; the PLT auger/compactor (with bagger option) washes, conveys, compacts and bags the captured solids. Solidly constructed in stainless steel, this equipment combination unit delivers trouble-free and hygienic operation of one of industry's most dirty jobs.
More and more, municipal and industrial operations are using membrane technology in wastewater treatment to achieve more consistent, higher quality effluents. Membranes frequently require protection from oversize trash solids that can clog or damage fiber elements. IPEC equipment used for preliminary fine screening of the wastewater flow provides simple and effective membrane protection. Plus, removing the oversize, mostly non-biodegradable solids produces higher quality sludge and minimizes expensive maintenance requirements for the bio-reactors.
IPEC's screening/compacting equipment combination integrates well into force main sewage systems and is especially popular in plants handling up to 5 million gallons per day.
Other wastewater treatment products manufactured by IPEC include:
- IFT rotary drum sludge thickener
- CLT in-channel auger screen
- TLT septage receiving unit
- RSS externally-fed rotary screen
- IFS internally-fed rotary screen
- SHS sidehill (static) screen
