Top 10 Reasons To Choose A Diaphragm Actuated Control Valve

Every water system typically consists of piping networks that distribute water from a source or storage reservoir to the end users. This usually will require some form of a valve that will have to be controlled.  

WASTEWATER CASE STUDIES AND WHITEPAPERS

  • Case Study: AquaSBR® System Achieves 96% BOD Removal At Rutter's Dairy Rutter's Dairy, located in York, Pennsylvania is operated as a pretreatment system prior to discharge to the municipal sewers. Before the installation of an AquaSBR system, Rutter's Dairy was discharging its wastewater directly to the municipality. Like many other food processors throughout the United States, Rutter's Dairy was assessed high municipal surcharges when wastewater BOD5 and TSS exceeded 300 mg/l

  • 31% Energy Savings For Skanderborg Waste Water Treatment Plant With New 55 kW Atlas Copco ZS Blower

    With a savings goal set at 25 % for the Danish waste water industry, optimizing all parts of the operation, so even the aeration, is of the highest importance. In 2011, The Skanderborg Waste Water Treatment Plant replaced one of its 75 kW lobe blowers with a new 55 kW Atlas Copco ZS screw blower and were able to reduce their energy consumption with 31%.

  • Case Study: Creating A Comprehensive Stormwater Model In A Challenging Environment Data including location coordinates, crown elevation, and invert depths were collected for each structure, and information such as structure dimension and composition were collected for each pipe using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. As soon as the inventory was finished, it was converted into database format that could then be imported into the stormwater models. By Matthew Luth, Civil Engineer, Burns & McDonnell
  • 1D And 2D Modelling Of Urban Drainage Systems Using XP-SWMM And TUFLOW As part of the on-going development of the XP-SWMM modeling system to enhance its functionality and its capability to model urban drainage systems the TUFLOW 2D hydrodynamic model is being incorporated as a layer into an XP-SWMM2D package.
