WASTEWATER FILTRATION WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
Desalination Technology Transforms 650 m3/day of Abused Industrial Wastewater
Activating The Sludge In Small Municipal Facultative Waste Lagoon Systems
Wastewater treatment lagoons were originally facultative in design — shallow, single and multi-cell lagoon systems that counted on wind, sunlight, anaerobic bacteria, and time for the digestion of the organic components of the wastewater.
New Membrane Technology Handles High Solids, Aids Water Reuse
As global conditions place more stress on water resources, a great deal of attention is being paid to water reuse technologies, particularly those that facilitate the reuse of the next level of difficult-to-treat or highly variable raw water sources.
Integration Of Membrana Ultrafiltration And Gas Transfer Membrane Technologies Produces High Quality Water And Controls Corrosion In Cooling Water System
By incorporating Membrana UF and Gas Transfer Membrane (GTM) a resort customer was able to reduce the risk of contaminating its cooling water and protect other system components from corrosion. The compact systems exceeded performance expectations and reduced maintenance and operating costs while maximizing the available space.
Remote Diagnostics Will Reduce Service Costs And Increase Uptime Of Filtration Systems
Filtration OEMs can use built-in device diagnostics to monitor and maintain automation component performance.
Automation Solutions For Fixed-Bed Filters
Handwheel or automated process valve? The worldwide trend is clearly moving towards automation, because it reduces energy and water consumption, especially rinsing water, and increases plant availability. Pneumatic automation of a fixed-bed filter is a good example of this.
Ultrafiltration Stormwater Recovery System At Cincinnati Zoo Reaches Optimal Performance
The Cincinnati Zoo uses an ultrafiltration system (UF) to treat stormwater. The reclaimed water is collected from 14 acres of the park, including parking lots, animal exhibit yards, rooftop drains, and walking path storm drains
The Benefits Of Reusing Wastewater
Since water is an essential element in food or beverage operations, reusing it can reduce a business’s water usage ratios, help meet sustainability goals, lower supply risk and contribute to cost savings, making it a top priority for many companies today.
SuperDisc™ Filtration System Case Study
Glendale Heights Wastewater Treatment Plant discharges treated water to the East Branch of the DuPage River in Illinois.
AltaPac™ AP-II Ultrafiltration Membrane Case Study
Cibola is a small community located in Southern Arizona along the Colorado River. With a growing population, the community decided to install a centralized water system to replace individual wells.
Antiscalant Impacts Water Reclamation Efforts
Water reuse efforts in the West Coast are a priority and have the Ground Water Replenishing System (GWRS) of the Orange County Water District (OCWD) utilizing new technologies for water conservation.
Sturbridge, Massachusetts historically suffered from periodic blooms of filamentous bacteria that caused bulking in the secondary clarifiers of their three activated sludge package plants.

ABOUT WASTEWATER FILTRATION
Wastewater filtration is often part of the tertiary treatment process that involves the final removal of suspended particles from water that has passed through both the primary and secondary treatment phases and immediately precedes disinfection. As the water passes through the filter, residual suspended material and bacteria is trapped in the filter and are removed from the filtered water. Passage can be blocked by physical obstruction, biological action, adsorption, absorption or a combination of ways. Wastewater filtration is usually the final step in the solids removal process.
With regulations increasing around wastewater effluent, the use of ultrafiltration and microfiltration systems in further polishing effluent has grown. Sand or activated carbon filters can provide a media for bacterial decomposition of nutrients, converting nitrates into nitrogen gas. The rise of water reuse applications is also fueling the increasing use of filters during the final polishing stages of the wastewater treatment process.
