WASTEWATER TREATMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Article: A Field Testing Must Have Device
    Article: A Field Testing Must Have Device To take control of our water quality, we first need to know what's in our water. Having portable testing devices to measure important water quality parameters in the field empowers water treatment professionals with improved water quality understanding, enabling them to take more immediate and effective action.

  • Worthy Brewing Company Case Study
    Worthy Brewing Company Case Study

    Worthy Brewing approached ClearBlu Environmental at the 2011 Craft Brewers Conference. The brewery was still in its planning stages, but knew that some extent of wastewater treatment would need to be incorporated to satisfy city requirements. ClearBlu worked closely with the facility’s architect and engineers to incorporate plans and allocate space for a complete aerobic treatment system at the facility. Upon startup, the brewery was only required to implement a pre-treatment system, which includes solids screening, settling, and automatic pH balancing. They have all ruggedized equipment that will support their system through the brewery’s expected expansion.

    Understanding ISE Measurements In Wastewater Process Monitoring

    Analytic measuring technique provides a huge number of procedures to determine the concentrations of substances in an unknown sample, e.g. photometry, titration or mass spectrometry.

  • Conversion To UV Disinfection: A Natural Wastewater Treatment Alternative
    Conversion To UV Disinfection: A Natural Wastewater Treatment Alternative

    The city of Auburn, AL has two wastewater treatment facilities – the Northside Water Pollution Control Facility and the H.C. Morgan Water Pollution Control Facility. In 2012, the H.C. Morgan facility was upgraded, and disinfection was converted from chlorine to UV. This case study will provide you with details about the selection process, why our TrojanUVSigna™ was chosen, and how we helped simplified the conversion from chlorine.

  • Eliminating Sludge Islands In Your Wastewater Lagoon
    Eliminating Sludge Islands In Your Wastewater Lagoon

    Old municipal and industrial wastewater lagoons have the tendency to build islands of sludge at various locations around the lagoon. It is most common for older lagoons to build such islands wherever wastewater enters the lagoons. By Jim Dartez

  • Sturbridge POTW: Greater Capacity For High Flow Events, Enhanced Clarification For New Regulations
    Sturbridge POTW: Greater Capacity For High Flow Events, Enhanced Clarification For New Regulations

    Sturbridge, Massachusetts historically suffered from periodic blooms of filamentous bacteria that caused bulking in the secondary clarifiers of their three activated sludge package plants.

  • 31% Energy Savings For Skanderborg Waste Water Treatment Plant With New 55 kW Atlas Copco ZS Blower

    With a savings goal set at 25 % for the Danish waste water industry, optimizing all parts of the operation, so even the aeration, is of the highest importance. In 2011, The Skanderborg Waste Water Treatment Plant replaced one of its 75 kW lobe blowers with a new 55 kW Atlas Copco ZS screw blower and were able to reduce their energy consumption with 31%.

  • The ClearBlu Solution To Brewery BOD
    The ClearBlu Solution To Brewery BOD

    Real Ale Brewing Company (RABC) started as a small brewery working out of a commercial retail space. As the brewery outgrew their facility they purchased land on the outskirts of town and built a new brewery. Their production level was still low enough at this point for the city to allow direct access to sewer. As RABC continued to be successful and grow, a mandate from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality stated that the city must require the brewery to treat their wastewater in order to prevent overwhelming the city’s treatment system. RABC began the process of looking into available options for wastewater treatment. They had been introduced to ClearBlu Environmental at the Craft Brewers Conference in 2011 and after careful research the brewery selected ClearBlu to design and install a complete pretreatment and treatment system.

  • How To Control Activated Sludge With Online Sensors
    How To Control Activated Sludge With Online Sensors

    The goal for domestic wastewater treatment in the 21st century should be to have a minimal carbon footprint and to be 100% self-sustainable with regards to energy, carbon, and nutrients – while achieving a discharge or reuse quality that preserves the quality of receiving waters (Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), 2009). Sustainability with respect to energy requires both conservation and production. By Dr. Robert Smith, Ph.D., P.E., BCEE, YSI, a Xylem brand
