WASTEWATER TREATMENT

BNR + MBR Equals Success At Water Reclamation Facility

Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) is allowing many wastewater treatment plants to achieve extremely high effluent quality. Still, for some applications even the most advanced BNR processes can’t address concerns with trace organics, pharmaceuticals, and other endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs).

    Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) is a global pharmaceutical and related health care company with the mission to extend and enhance human life. One of the company’s oldest and largest facilities was built in 1943 in East Syracuse, New York, when BMS was one of 12 companies chosen by the federal government to mass produce penicillin.

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement
    Dissolved Oxygen Measurement

    One of the most important measurements in the determination of the health of a body of water is its dissolved oxygen content. The quantity of dissolved oxygen in water is normally expressed in parts per million (ppm) by weight and is due to the solubility of oxygen from the atmosphere around us.

  • Application Bulletin: Reverse Osmosis
    Application Bulletin: Reverse Osmosis Osmosis is the phenomenon of lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium is reached
  • Applying Oxidation Reduction Potential Sensors In Biological Nutrient Removal Systems Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is commonly a misunderstood science. Applying ORP to wastewater treatment is often a considered a mystery and sometimes called “black magic”. By Bob Dabkowski Hach Wastewater Specialist
  • Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins
    Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins

    As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then used as fuel in the cogeneration process. However, a clean environment calls for not just clean air and clean energy, but clean water as well.

  • Application Note: Building A Baseline In Florida The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) knows that establishing dissolved oxygen (DO) and nutrient criteria for the state’s water bodies is a challenge – both scientifically and politically
  • Non-Contact Radar Level Meter Improves Reactor Vessel Measurement
    Non-Contact Radar Level Meter Improves Reactor Vessel Measurement

    A North Carolina-based specialty chemical manufacturer, a major producer of insect repellent, was looking for a better way to measure the liquid level in its glass-lined agitated reactor. The company uses a number of complex technologies to manufacture sebacates, adipates, isophthalates, catalysts, alkyds, and other natural and renewable chemistries based on castor and citrates.

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In Wastewater Treatment

    A wastewater treatment plant separates solids from the liquid, and consists of two basic stages: primary treatment and secondary treatment.

  • Disinfection And Emerging Contaminant Removal With HyDOZ®
    Disinfection And Emerging Contaminant Removal With HyDOZ®

    In the summer of 2012, BlueInGreen partnered with a facility in Arkansas to study disinfection of wastewater and removal of emerging contaminants of concern (ECC) by utilizing dissolved ozone. The plant has a firm capacity of 12 MGD and includes primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification, and sand filtration prior to the existing UV system.
