  • Disk Thickener Technology Replaces Gravity Thickener, Improves Performance Of Digester
    Disk Thickener Technology Replaces Gravity Thickener, Improves Performance Of Digester

    After two years operation the plant reports that RoS2S Disk Thickener is consistently producing a 5.5% DS average with an ~0.6% DS average feed at a steady flow of 107 gpm (60 gpm activated, 7 gpm trickling, 40 gpm service water) running 24 hours a day.

  • Variable Speed Wastewater Pumping
    Variable Speed Wastewater Pumping

    Wastewater pumps have traditionally been operated in an on-off mode for small as well as large wastewater pump stations. Because the inflow of wastewater is varying over time and is often only a fraction of a pump’s required capacity engineers have looked for ways to operate wastewater pumps at a reduced capacity in order to optimize performance while reducing operating costs.

SedVac Sediment Removal System

SedVac Sediment Removal System

Unlike traditional pipe systems, the Brentwood SedVac cleans all the way down to the basin floor without clogging. SedVac’s unique design funnels the sludge and scrapes the floor, resulting in consistent solids removal of 3 percent concentration while wasting less water than traditional pipe systems. These features mean less interruptions in production and no more hosing down your basin.

Remove three times more sludge in half the time!

  • Reaching Zero Liquid Discharge: A Starter’s Guide
    Reaching Zero Liquid Discharge: A Starter’s Guide

    Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) systems employ cutting-edge technologies to minimize water use within a given industrial facility and maximize the reuse of its processed wastewater. In the perfect ZLD system, no effluent ever leaves the factory, savings are immense, discharge and reuse requirements are met with ease, and the praise of conservation groups is bestowed fervently.

    It supplies drinking water for more than half of the total U.S. population and greater than 95 percent of the rural population. It helps grow our food because more than 60 percent of it is used for irrigation to grow crops. It's an important component in many industrial processes, and it’s a source to recharge lakes, rivers, and wetlands.

    California's Future Quagga-mire

    In the long list of issues that face the state of California, an aquatic species invasion isn’t likely to be a legislative priority. In the water world, an invasion of any kind means trouble for the industry. The problem isn’t so much about water quality; daily operations and important ecosystems will be affected. Clams roughly the size of a dime called quagga mussels have the potential to multiply and clog water intake structures. While they settle in, quagga mussels feed on important planktons that native organisms require to survive.

    Hydraulic Fracturing And The EPA Water Study: Where Do We Go From Here?

    It’s been two months since EPA released its much anticipated draft report on hydraulic fracturing, and organizations like ours are busy preparing their official comments, which are due at the end of August. But based on what we have learned so far and what has been written in the media, it’s important to spend some time on what the report said — and didn’t say — and what it all means.

    FGD Purge Treatment In Coal-Fired Power Generation

    Stricter environmental policies and regulations worldwide are changing how industry approaches all aspects of business. Likewise, EU (European Union) environmental policies governing air, soil, and water quality have become progressively stringent.

    These policy changes affect the power industry’s balance of meeting growing European energy demands with compliance to environmental standards. In order to conform with EU standards specific for flue gas, a coalfired generation plant (at the time owned by Endesa, Italia, S.p.A.) in Monfalcone, Italy, undertook the measure of installing a state-of-the-art FGD (flue gas desulfurization) system at their facility. This system would remove SO2 (sulfur dioxide) from the emissions for the 336 MW coal-fired power station.
