Improving Sludge Dewatering Process Control<br>With RTC-SD
Improving Sludge Dewatering Process Control
With RTC-SD

A WWTP sought solutions to improve process control, as high centrate solids caused plant inefficiencies such as high wasting rates, inefficient capacity and loading, and stress on centrifuges. Read the full case study to learn how the RTC-SD solution controlled polymer dosing in real time, allowing the WWTP to improve solids capture and increase throughput.

Smart Wireless Technology Solves Environmental Monitoring Challenge Smart Wireless Technology Solves Environmental Monitoring Challenge

Faced with the challenge of meeting environmental monitoring legislation, Korsnäs Gävle needed a way to monitor water from their heat exchangers for contamination before discharging it to the sea. Additionally, the board and paper manufacturer required new sensors for continuous monitoring of pH, dissolved oxygen, and water temperatures from effluent emissions in their basins and ponds. In this case study, learn how Korsnäs Gävle implemented a wireless sensor network to quickly  achieve compliance and meet its monitoring needs.

How To Control Activated Sludge With Online Sensors How To Control Activated Sludge With Online Sensors

The goal for domestic wastewater treatment in the 21st century should be to have a minimal carbon footprint and to be 100% self-sustainable with regards to energy, carbon, and nutrients – while achieving a discharge or reuse quality that preserves the quality of receiving waters (Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), 2009). Sustainability with respect to energy requires both conservation and production. By Dr. Robert Smith, Ph.D., P.E., BCEE, YSI, a Xylem brand

Purge and Trap Background 
When using a concentrator system, it is not essential to understand how it works. However, a good grasp of the fundamentals helps you prevent problems and assists you when you are faced with tasks such as method development and troubleshooting. This section is not intended to be a full theoretical evaluation of purge and trap gas chromatography. The main purpose is to help you develop an understanding of how and why compounds are concentrated.
