WASTEWATER FILTRATION WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
The Portland, Indiana, Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) had been using six granular-media filter units for tertiary treatment since the 1980s. The plant’s treatment protocol includes fine screens for grit removal, followed by primary clarifiers, trickling filters, aeration basins, secondary clarifiers, the tertiary treatment system, and then chlorine disinfection.
Paper Facility Increases Efficiency With Filter Rehabilitation
NewPage operates eight paper mills in the United States. The Biron mill located in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin produces approximately 370,000 tons of paper each year.
Bubble Removal From Aqueous Streams Using SuperPhobic® Membrane Contactors
Many manufacturing processes, analytical measurements, and other industrial processes and procedures that involve aqueous based solutions, are adversely affected by bubbles in the fluid stream.
Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters
Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants.
Using Membrane Contactor Technology To Extend Resin Bed Life
In today’s economic environment when profits are reduced due to rising costs, it is necessary to find ways to save time and money.
Clarification System Boosts Capacity, Reduces Maintenance
Spikes in peak demand at the 3.0 MGD Freedom District Water Treatment Plant in Carroll County, MD, exceeded 70 percent of the plant’s capacity, and the existing clarifier made for a lengthy sludge-removal process. After staff installed a dissolved air flotation (DAF) pretreatment system to improve the efficiency of the membrane filters, the now 4.0 MGD facility has reduced maintenance for operators. The system also safeguards against pathogens that can pass through traditional sand/diatomaceous (S/D) filters.
NEOSEP® Membrane Bioreactor System Simplifies 'Fundamental Necessities' Of MBR
The NEOSEP® MBR system features Kruger’s uniquely designed K-120C and K-240C flat sheet membrane modules. The modules offer several innovative design features that enhance ease of installation, operation and maintenance. This includes an integrated central lifting eye, offering an incredibly well balanced module that makes installation and retrieval a simple and stress-free process.
Flat-Sheet Membrane Units Increase WWTP Capacity
Following several years of inadequate performance and intensive cleaning requirements, the owners of the Callao, VA, wastewater treatment plant looked for a solution. The installation of two flexible, flat-sheet membrane units provided an instant capacity increase and a decrease in sludge accumulation, resulting in streamlined plant operations.
Do We Have To Sacrifice Performance To Be Green?
The global use of membranes is widespread in municipal, industrial, and wastewater applications with reverse osmosis (RO) proving to be a highly effective and reliable method of advanced water treatment. Reuse applications have been particularly challenging for water treatment chemical companies as these highly variable feedwaters can contain any imaginable constituent, resulting in a wide array of site specific foulants.

Understanding The PeriFilter Technology
There is a newly-developed technology, the so-called PeriFilter® that will hit the market within the next few weeks. This offers many heretofore technological and economic advantages in the separation of solid phases from liquid phases with concomitant transformation of the solid phases into processable forms for further usage and/or products. It may be used in the separation of solids from liquids in water purification and in wastewater treatment applications as well.
Discfilter Fixes TSS Effluent And Capacity Issues
The Oconomowoc, WI Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) needed to repair or replace the existing shallow bed traveling bridge sand filters.
The AnoxKaldnes™ MBBR (Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor) process is a biological wastewater treatment process that utilizes specialized plastic carriers to create a surface on which a biofilm can attach.

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.
