  1. Automation Cuts Energy Costs And Man Hours At Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Energy conservation continues to be a critical focus for wastewater treatment plants. And because of this, innovations aimed at conserving energy and reducing energy costs abound. Water Online Radio recently caught up with Brian Hayes, Business Development Manager for ABB, to understand some of the areas where wastewater treatment plants are having energy-saving success.

  2. Coca-Cola And WEF Share Water Vision

    With over 1,000 manufacturing sites in more than 200 countries, Coca-Cola Company knows a thing or two about water. And much of that knowledge is housed in Paul Bowen’s organization.

  3. Fuzzy Filter Uses Compression In Advanced Primary Treatment

    Advanced primary treatment reduces or eliminates the solids load or organic carbon out of the waste stream. By doing so, a wastewater plant can decrease aeration power and avoid the need to expand its treatment basin size. The removed solids can also be moved to a digester to produce energy.

  4. Conveyance of Biogas Becomes More Efficient With Biogas Blower Technology

    Handling the biogas coming out of an anaerobic digester should not be taken lightly. It’s not only highly corrosive but it also has the potential to be highly explosive.

  5. Benefits Of Walnut Shell Backwashable Media Filters

    Filtra Systems Company developed the walnut shell filter about 40 years ago. One of the attractions of walnut shell is how well it can handle oil. When oil mixes together with sand, it essentially becomes asphalt. With walnut shell, the oil is coalesced and then, when it’s backwashed, the oil can be released from the shell.

  6. Making Aftermarket Service And Support Work For Water And Wastewater Treatment Plants

    As municipalities look to make their water and wastewater treatment equipment run longer with fewer operational staff on payroll to maintain the equipment, having a reliable aftermarket parts and service provider becomes essential.

  7. Clog-Free Pumps, Reuse Trailers, And The Internet Of Things

    In the mid-twentieth century, the idea of operating an electric motor under water was thought to be crazy. But in 1948, Flygt introduced its first submersible pump followed by its first submersible wastewater pump in 1956.

  8. Wet Wipes Clog Sewer Systems

    Wet wipes, and premoistened personal wipes, now ubiquitous alongside toilet tissue in the supermarket aisle, are causing problems for wastewater plant managers. They are incompatible with sewage treatment technology and they’re forced to spend the millions of dollars each year to pull gobs of wipes out of their systems.

  9. Primary Filtration Using Cloth Media Filtration Technology

    Since 1969, Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc. has been a leader in the design, application and manufacture of wastewater treatment equipment and systems for municipal and industrial markets, worldwide. They are most noted for the Aqua SBR, the sequencing batch reactor, biological process, as well as now our cloth media filters.

  10. True BLEU: Underdrain Concept And Design By Tonka Water

    Rick Mann, VP of sales with Tonka Water, shares details on an underdrain system that can fit into any plant – and is built to last.
