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

WASTEWATER TREATMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Case Study: Pumping Up Safety, Efficiency, And A Smarter Design
    Case Study: Pumping Up Safety, Efficiency, And A Smarter Design When Progress Energy learned about the opportunity to install new, more efficient and easier-to-maintain pump technology for less than they could rebuild their current pumps, the decision was simple. By The Gorman-Rupp Company
  • Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality
    Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality

    Kibbutz Reim had to convert salty groundwater into a high quality irriga­tion resource in this desert-like region. High recovery was essential to this customer, both because of the limited amount of groundwater available and the challenge of brine disposal from their inland location.

  • White Paper: Aeration Blowers In The Wastewater Industry In North America
    White Paper: Aeration Blowers In The Wastewater Industry In North America The economical operation of a wastewater treatment plant depends largely on the design and the interplay of the aeration and process controls. Moreover, the human factor and the management objectives are at the heart of the plant’s reality and should also be taken into consideration. Selection and thoughtful integration of all the subsystems is of paramount importance. By Aerzen
  • Vortex Wastewater Pumps Vortex pumps are primary sewerage pumps used to transport are sewerage through the wastewater treatment plant process. Because these pumps are required to handle the raw sewerage including grit and associated storm water runoff debris the abrasion rate is quite high. In this plant the pumps were lasting less than 1 year before severe abrasion caused reduction in tolerances leading to re-circulation. As the sewerage was no longer being efficiently transported to treatment the plants capacity was effectively reduced. Plant was considering replacement after 1 year a t a cost of $8,500.00.
  • Validation Of Online Monitors Using EPA 334.0 And EPA-Approved Or Accepted Laboratory Meter Reporting Methods There has long been verification testing between lab and online instrumentation for water quality measurements, especially for Drinking Water and Wastewater (DW//WW). By Jane L. Stevens, Product Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific
  • Use Of A Magnetic Ion Exchange Resin For The Removal Of Dissolved Organic Carbon To Allow Compliance With The EPA’s D/DBP Rule At The NETMWD WTP

    This paper will discuss the results of laboratory and pilot testing to remove TOC from raw water at the NETMWD’s Mims WTP including operating costs of a MIEX® pretreatment system.

  • Feature Installation: Pleasant Valley School District, PA (Wastewater Treatment Lagoons) Pleasant Valley School District is comprised of seven schools encompassing a 120 square mile area (311 km2) in Monroe County Pennsylvania.
  • Disc Aerators Replace Brush Aerators, Increasing Capacity And Performance
    Disc Aerators Replace Brush Aerators, Increasing Capacity And Performance

    To comply with new EPA rules and handle additional flow, the City of St. Charles Missouri WWTP required a capacity increase, and the landlocked plant needed a solution that would fit within its existing footprint. Brush aerators and boat clarifiers were replaced with 12 VLR-mounted disc aerators to fulfill the oxygen requirement while allowing for the treatment of higher organic loading. The solution provided increased nutrient-removal capacity and improved efficiency without increasing tank volume.

  • Remote Monitoring Solves Overflow And Lost Data Problems
    Remote Monitoring Solves Overflow And Lost Data Problems

    In London, Ontario, an aging combined sewer system created flooding issues, and the city’s outdated monitoring system provided unreliable and inconsistent data to indicate why. By installing a remote monitoring system, engineers were able to determine the exact source of the overflow problems. In this case study, find out how the implementation of wireless flow meters can lower operations and maintenance costs.

  • Clinton, MA SuperDisc Case Study

    The Clinton Wastewater Treatment Plant provides advanced wastewater treatment, including nutrient removal, for the towns of Clinton and Lancaster, Massachusetts.

Pumps - Electric Submersible

Ideal Usage of Electric Submersible Pumps: Removing water and handling solids up to 3.15" when electric power source is available.

Aztec 600 Manganese Analyzer

Aztec 600 Manganese Analyzer

If not adequately removed from drinking water, manganese can cause taste, odor and color problems, staining of clothes and plumbing fixtures, and incrustation of water mains that can result in black water at the customer's tap.
Memthane® Anaerobic Membrane Bio-Reactor

Memthane® Anaerobic Membrane Bio-Reactor

Anaerobic Membrane Bio-Reactor technology opens the door to the treatment of high-strength waste streams previously considered economically untreatable through traditional anaerobic processes alone. Memthane® technology maximizes renewable energy production while producing superb quality effluent that can be reused or discharged directly to the sewer.

Ammonium/Nitrate Ion Selective Electrodes

Ammonium/Nitrate Ion Selective Electrodes

In addition to reducing carbon, modern wastewater treatment plants also reduce nitrogen and phosphate. For this purpose, the online measurement of ammonium, nitrate and phosphate parameters is required. Nitrite and total phosphate are also occasionally measured.

    New Challenge: Put Technology To Work To Protect Drinking Water

    You likely remember when, this past summer, half a million people who live in the Toledo, Ohio, area were told not to drink the water coming out of their taps for several days. A state of emergency was declared because of a harmful algal bloom, which released toxins into the water that could have made many people ill.
