E33 Adsorption Systems E33 Adsorption Systems

In the adsorption process, contaminants break their bond with the water molecules and chemically adhere to a filter media. This is typically accomplished by directing the water flow through pressure vessels containing the filter media at a rate that allows enough contact time for adsorption to occur. AdEdge Water Technologies’ Bayoxide E33 adsorption media is the industry standard for arsenic removal. This granular ferric oxide media reduces up to 99% total arsenic, including both Arsenic (III) and Arsenic (V).

Granular Activated Carbon Granular Activated Carbon

Calgon Carbon created the first granular activated carbon (GAC) from bituminous coal in the 1940s and has staked a position of global industry leadership ever since.

SHS & SHP Sidehill Screens SHS & SHP Sidehill Screens

Simple And Economical Solids Separation
The simplicity of the SHS and SHP Sidehill Screens make them an excellent choice static screening applications. With no motors or moving parts the Sidehill Screens let gravity do the work as effluent flows down the screening media.  The screening elements are fixed, curved, slotted, wedgewire screens oriented horizontally across the direction of flow. The screening surface is positioned at a steeply sloped angle providing an effective means of quickly stripping of liquid and allowing the solids to slide off the bottom of the screen.

Odor Control Odor Control

What’s the best way to fight odors in the wastewater industry? Add a little oxygen. Adding Praxair’s pure oxygen to your existing process can raise the level of dissolved oxygen enough to reduce odors without further action. Even better, the use of a Praxair oxygen acetates treatment system will lower costs and help you meet your environmental goals. Our systems help you manage peak demand and increase capacity while reducing Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions.

Digester Gas Flow Meter Model ST51 Digester Gas Flow Meter Model ST51

Plant engineers responsible for improving digester processes or utilizing the biogas as a fuel source will find the new Model ST51 Mass Flow Meter from Fluid Components International is designed as an application-specific solution to meet their unique needs.

BEACON® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA)<br> Managed Solution BEACON® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA)
Managed Solution

The BEACON® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) managed solution from Badger Meter brings a new level of utility-optimizing information to light. The BEACON AMA managed solution combines the power of the intuitive BEACON AMA software suite with proven ORION® Cellular/Fixed Network technology to provide utility management with greater visibility and control.

Buffered pH Control Buffered pH Control

It’s no easy task to run your water treatment facility as efficiently as possible while still meeting capacity demands and environmental regulations. But, at Praxair we can help. We have extensive experience in using carbon dioxide to reduce pH in alkaline water for the water and wastewater industry. Replacing mineral acids with CO2 for pH reduction offers many benefits. By no longer buying or storing chemicals that can do more harm than good, you are making your site safer while also reducing costs. This improved process can help you manage peak demand and capacity increases, increase plant flexibility, and lessen your impact on the environment. And when you’re supplied by one of the world's largest carbon dioxide suppliers, you can explore this alternative with confidence.

  • How To Improve The Water Resiliency Of U.S. Cities

    Arcadis’ Sustainable Cities Water Index reviews 50 cities around the globe across a string of sustainability measures such as water efficiency, water resiliency and water quality. As Chris Hill, Vice President of Water Supply and Treatment Lead for North America, explains in this Water Online Radio interview, the U.S. cities perform well in the areas of water quality and water efficiency but tend to lag European communities in the area of water resiliency.

  • Potable Reuse Summit To Seize The Moment

    In October, the WateReuse Association’s 2016 Potable Reuse Summit will bring water professionals of all levels together to hear success stories and find out how to implement potable reuse programs in their own communities.

  • What Do Americans Think About Their Drinking Water?

    Survey data on U.S. consumers’ attitudes toward public drinking water confirms tough times now, but hints at better days ahead.

  • Partial Shutoff For Partial Service

    Cutting off service to a customer who hasn’t paid their water bill can be a controversial move for many utilities. But a new product that integrates a shut off valve with an ultrasonic meter may make what has traditionally been an all or nothing decision a little easier.

  • How To Evolve With Rising Water Prices

    The rising cost of water has forced utilities to evolve, in their practices and in the ways they interact with a public asked to pay higher rates.

  • Preparing For Algae Season
    Preparing For Algae Season

    For water treatment operators and utility officials, the summer months don’t just mean sunshine, pool parties, and barbecues. The season also brings the peak time for algal blooms, the toxic clouds formed in surface water thanks to increased nutrient contamination and rising temperatures. With rising instances of toxic algae around the country and increased regulations for eliminating it, utilities have had to keep pace.

  • Lessons Learned From Flint
    Lessons Learned From Flint

    We all hope that the Flint Water Crisis – where cost-cutting measures led to the drinking water supply to become severely tainted with lead – was an isolated incident. However, it is not impossible that a similar event could happen again, especially in a similarly  desperate city with limited financial resources. Here are a few key points that should be considered to avoid repeating such a tragedy.

  • What’s In Your Water?
    What’s In Your Water?

    When is the last time you took a moment to stop, and smell your water? A continuous supply of clean and safe drinking water is something that most people take for granted. We rarely go to the tap doubting that the water will be clean and safe. Recently, the general population and water supply professionals have become concerned about the safety and protection of our drinking water supplies.

  • The Benefits Of Continuous Monitoring Of Phosphate In Corrosion Control
    The Benefits Of Continuous Monitoring Of Phosphate In Corrosion Control

    When Flint Michigan discontinued purchasing water from the Detroit Water Authority and began using the Flint River as their raw water source they unfortunately did not consider the potential impact on lead and copper corrosion and the impact on the public.

  • How To Ensure Your Utility Complies With The LT2
    How To Ensure Your Utility Complies With The LT2

    The U.S. EPA’s Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2) was adopted in 2006 to modify the Safe Drinking Water Act and more tightly control the spread of Cryptosporidium, a microorganism that can cause gastrointestinal infection if ingested. Since its inception, the rule has posed a treatment challenge to utilities that are susceptible to the tiny contaminant. But which utilities are at risk? And how should they approach treatment?

  • ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?
    ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?

    There have been many publications lately that claim universal appeal of the ORP sensors and their applicability across the board. This concerns me, because the authors sometimes forget to mention some well-known practical limitations of the method, let alone the realities of water treatment applications potentially influencing the sensor performance.

  • Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.
