WASTEWATER FEATURES, INSIGHTS AND ANALYSIS

  • What EPA Should Consider On Their Final 'Fracking' Assessment
    What EPA Should Consider On Their Final 'Fracking' Assessment

    Questions about if and how hydraulic fracturing activities can contaminate drinking water have been top-of-mind for many since the practice started getting widespread public attention about a decade ago. Recognizing the validity of those concerns, EPA undertook a study to see how the full ‘hydraulic fracturing water cycle’ could potentially impact our drinking water resources.

  • Premiere At The Goldsteig Cheese Dairy

    A Kaeser EBS series screw blower is making wastewater treatment considerably more efficient and effective at the Goldsteig dairy factory in Cham in the Upper Palatinate region in Germany.

  • Local Support Saves Time And Money
    Local Support Saves Time And Money

    At a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for distribution to a large area of customers, a contractor decided to switch to SITRANS FM MAG 5100W flowmeters. A local representative saved a the contractor time and money by recognizing the need for the magmeter to be isolated from the piping protection before startup, which also saved the customer from added downtime.

  • Warming Up To Thermal Hydrolysis
    Warming Up To Thermal Hydrolysis

    Thermal hydrolysis is an innovative wastewater solids conditioning process that boasts many advantages — financial, environmental, and otherwise. Is your plant a good candidate?

  • The Age Of Peracetic Acid — A Solution To Increasingly Challenging Regulations
    The Age Of Peracetic Acid — A Solution To Increasingly Challenging Regulations

    While chlorination has long dominated water disinfection, new approaches and technologies have emerged in the wake of disinfection byproduct (DBP) regulations. Could peracetic acid (PAA) be the option that dethrones the king?

  • RWL Water Provides Coca-Cola FEMSA With Wastewater Treatment For Reuse
    RWL Water Provides Coca-Cola FEMSA With Wastewater Treatment For Reuse

    At the Coca-Cola FEMSA plant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, increases in production required an expansion of their wastewater treatment plant.

  • Why ASME PTC10 Is Not Sufficient To Define Testing Of A High Speed Turbo Blower
    Why ASME PTC10 Is Not Sufficient To Define Testing Of A High Speed Turbo Blower

    The technology to produce low pressure air, an energy intensive ingredient in the wastewater process, has made significant steps forward in recent years. Unfortunately, the specifications for testing these new sophisticated air producers have not kept pace.

  • Dynamic Improvements In Low Pressure Membranes And System Design
    Dynamic Improvements In Low Pressure Membranes And System Design

    We are programmed to believe that the word “fouled” is inherently bad, identifying something that is dirty, unclean, or contaminated.  But for those of us in the membrane industry, the physical presence of “foulants” simply confirms that our treatment was necessary and that our process is successfully producing a more pristine effluent.

  • Wastewater Recycling Project At Mumbai International Airport
    Wastewater Recycling Project At Mumbai International Airport

    As a part of a massive expansion plan for Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport located in Mumbai, India, a wastewater recycle project was contracted in 2011 to cater to the growing requirements of the expanded airport.
