WASTEWATER FILTRATION WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
The City of Geneva is located on the Seneca Lake in the wine-producing area of New York known as the Finger Lakes region.
Ceramic Membrane Filtration System: Installation Overview
Our mobile ceramic membrane filtration equipment is recommended for scattered areas with poor quality water, and areas where operation and maintenance of water treatment plant is difficult. Download the case brief for examples of real-world installations of our ceramic membrane filtration system.
Brushy Creek, TX Improves Microfiltration Performance With Pall Services
The Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District (BCMUD) in Brushy Creek, TX contracted Pall in 2014 to perform a process study of a microfiltration system first commissioned in 2006, and expanded in 2009.
Pall Aria™ Water System Helps Bring Renewable Water Supply To Castle Rock, Colorado
The installation of a new water treatment system at the Plum Creek Water Purification facility in Castle Rock, Colo. is enabling the town to treat and deliver renewable surface water to residents and businesses.
Changxing Power Plant Debuts The World’s First Forward Osmosis-Based Zero Liquid Discharge Application
Desalination Technology Transforms 650 m3/day of Abused Industrial Wastewater
Florida WWTP Expansion Plays Important Role In Ecosystem Recovery And Protection
Panama City Beach is situated on 27 miles of white-sand beaches in the panhandle of Northwest Florida. The city is ecologically significant in that it is surrounded by thousands of acres of protected wetlands which are part of the West Bay Ecosystem.
Harmsco Solutions For Small Community Water Supply
The Township of Shenandoah, Virginia was forced to comply with new regulations being enforced by the United States EPA concerning the removal of Cryptosporidium and Giardia Cysts from surface waters. Previously, no filtration was required.
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.
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.

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.
