A WWTP chooses a new screw press that takes up less than half the space that the old belt press had occupied. This was striking for the operations team but not as striking as the fraction of time they needed to spend managing the screw press.
In a recent retrofit replacing a belt filter press with a Huber RoS3Q screwpress, the plant operations staff at Robinson WWTP leveraged the technology’s greatly improved dewatering performance to solve their sludge storage and distribution strategies. As a result they are able to radically improve both operations and reduce costs.
The textile industry in Bahrain dates to ancient times. In the time of Alexander the Great, the country was as known as a producer of clothes seen throughout Arabia and the Indian subcontinent. Modern day Bahrain maintains its strong tradition in textile manufacture.
Pennsylvania treatment plant upgrades its headworks to innovative grit removal system that handles combined sewer storm surges, removes fine grit particles, and lessens maintenance on operations staff.
La Crosse’s WWTP wanted to make some improvements to their treatment processes to make their plant more efficient and effective. Because of the odor, hazardous nature, and sheer weight of the organics-laden grit, La Crosse’s disposal fees were quite significant.
The City of Dixon, Illinois, located 100 miles west of Chicago, went on-line with an upgraded 4.5 MGD wastewater treatment plant in February 2002.
Located between San Francisco and Sacramento in Solano County, California, the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District (FSSD) services more than 135,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers over 41 square miles.
Serving over 200,000 ratepayers, the City of Tacoma operates two award-winning wastewater treatment plants.
The City of Dartmouth, MA, Water Pollution Control Division is responsible for operating the town’s 3 million gallon per day wastewater treatment facility, a testing laboratory, a composting site, a sludge.
North Las Vegas’s field facility is an MBR plant that was brand new when Huber’s rotary fine screens were implemented as part of its new water treatment and reclamation process. The facility is “smart,” using a level of technology at which few large plants operate. Huber’s advanced fine screening technology plays a key role in the impressive and innovative technology lineup.
It is a very expensive and time consuming task indeed to wrestle with a fouled membrane. The single-most important result that Star Sewer and Water District Waste Water Treatment Plant was hoping for from their retrofit was preventing harmful screenings from reaching the plant’s membrane bioreactor. The membranes in the bioreactor can be easily damaged by solids in the flow.
The Rotamat screen has been a popular choice for protecting debris sensitive technologies downstream such as MBRs. Through a constant program of responding industry needs, Huber Technology has developed the RPPS Star Pro series centerfeed fine screen. When combined, the Star and Pro options for the RPPS increases capacity and enables for even finer perforations, allowing for increased screenings removal in a tighter footprint.
