WASTEWATER TREATMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • White Paper: Passive Filter - Sustainable BMP For Permanent Stormwater Treatment Of Heavy Metals, Nutrients, Hydrocarbons And Sediment
    White Paper: Passive Filter - Sustainable BMP For Permanent Stormwater Treatment Of Heavy Metals, Nutrients, Hydrocarbons And Sediment Passive filtration provides a sustainable alternative to classical drainage concepts for source control of hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and nutrients that endanger our water bodies. In urban areas with high building density, traditional drainage concepts like wetlands are not available and the concept of decentralized treatment facilities that can be housed in catch basin structures are a viable option for treatment of pollutants.

  • Not All Stainless Steel Resists Corrosion
    Not All Stainless Steel Resists Corrosion

    For Municipalities and Municipal Utilities Authorities struggling to deal with corrosion issues, knowing where to turn when faced with these challenges can be daunting. Logan Township Municipal Utilities Authority, of NJ was faced with such problems when it was discovered that a five year old stainless steel headworks tank at their wastewater treatment facility was experiencing extreme Microbiological Induced Corrosion (MIC) at the waterline with corrosion severe enough to open holes through the tank wall. By Jon C. Lattin, CSI, CCPR, Corrosion Technology Systems and John E. Davis, Marketing Specialist, Sauereisen, Inc.

  • How To Manage The 4 Water-Based Fluids Associated With Hydraulic Fracturing
    How To Manage The 4 Water-Based Fluids Associated With Hydraulic Fracturing

    The primary fluid used in hydraulic fracturing is water and the completion process can require from 2.75 - 8.25 million gallons per well. This white paper discusses the different water management and instrumentation requirements for controlling and processing drilling mud, hydraulic fracturing fluid, flowback water and produced water.

  • Bringing Efficiency And Confidence To Wastewater Analysis

    Maintaining the quality of wastewater (WW) effluent is more important than ever before, as municipalities deal with aging treatment systems, budget restrictions, and evolving compliance standards. As a result, water professionals need accurate and efficient tools to check water safety in the lab and in the field to determine levels of chemicals such as sodium, chloride, calcium, fluoride and ammonia, as well as pH, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen. By Dr. George Jarvis, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Water Analysis Instruments

  • Oxygen Removal From Feedwater In A Central District Heating System
    Oxygen Removal From Feedwater In A Central District Heating System

    In central district heating systems, heated water from power plants is distributed to densely populated areas via insulated piping networks. High water quality is required to maintain the integrity of pipes, storage tanks, and other infrastructure in such systems. This case study explains how a Dutch power station achieved an O2 specification of <10 ppb for storage water tank filling by installing a chemical-free deoxygenation system.

  • Application Note: Chlorine Measurement In Wastewater And Regulated Discharge Requirements
    Application Note: Chlorine Measurement In Wastewater And Regulated Discharge Requirements Homes, industry, schools, and businesses all generate sanitary waste, or sewage. Sewage treatment is a multistage process that cleans up wastewater before discharge or reuse. In the final step of the treatment, disinfectants are added to kill disease-causing organisms. Common disinfectants are chlorine gas and sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine dosage levels are designed to leave almost no residual in the wastewater after treatment
  • Wireless Lift Station Monitoring Application Note

    Many food processors use dissolved air flotation (DAF) to remove fats, oils and grease (FOG) and suspended solids from their wastewater streams.

  • Monitoring Nitrates In Drinking Water And Wastewater

    Nitrate is present in high levels in wastewater due in part to the high nitrates present in human sewage but also from some types of industrial effluent entering the municipal sewer system.

  • 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.

    On-Line Phosphorous Measurement Takes The Guesswork Out Of Alum Treatment

    Phosphorous promotes eutrophication in surface waters and helps create conditions for algal blooming and oxygen depletion. Some phosphorous removal can occur naturally in a conventional biological wastewater treatment facility, but the result is not reliably compliant with increasingly strict limits on permissible phosphate levels in effluent discharged to receiving streams, ponds and lakes. By Bob Dabkowski, Hach Company
