WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Pilot Studies In North Carolina With Hydrex™ Odor Solutions

Two municipalities were faced with odor issues and required corrosion prevention in their collection systems. Monitoring in the sewer lines indicated peak H2S atmospheric concentrations of 300-500 ppm. Both clients desired H2S < 20 mg/L to prevent corrosion and preferably lower to prevent H2S odor.

  • How To Select The Most Effective Blower Technology For Wastewater Applications
    How To Select The Most Effective Blower Technology For Wastewater Applications

    Given numerous variables when selecting an aeration blower system for wastewater applications, and equally numerous claims by technology providers, it is not surprising that confusion exists. Worse than confusion is the disappointment that results when a blower technology fails to perform as anticipated — and operating cost and efficiency benefits go unrealized.

  • The Basics Of Disinfection
    The Basics Of Disinfection

    From utility water to wastewater, whether used in industrial processes or for drinking, disinfection plays a prominent role in providing safe and useable water. Water free from pathogens and other microorganisms ensures processes run efficiently and people are kept safe from disease. By Harland R Pond, Business Development Manager – Water Treatment

  • Case Study: Picking The Perfect Pump
    Case Study: Picking The Perfect Pump One of the most important steps along the way when purchasing new pumping equipment comes at the very beginning – choosing an expert with which to work. A distributor is often your key to uncovering the correct pump, because he will be the person to whom you provide information about your facility, your specific pumping application, the liquid being pumped, where it is being pumped to, how quickly it needs to be pumped – and a variety of other vital considerations.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT APPLICATION NOTES

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant
    Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Breakdown of organic wastes entering a wastewater treatment plant is accomplished by using a biomass or blend of beneficial microscopic organisms, bacteria, and solids. This converts the non-settleable solids (dissolved and colloidal matter) into settleable solids, carbon dioxide, water, and energy.

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

  • Chlorine Measurement In Wastewater And Regulated Discharge Requirements
    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

  • Aerated Biological Nitrogen Removal
    Aerated Biological Nitrogen Removal

    Excess ammonia in receiving waters causes algal blooms that decrease oxygen levels. For this reason, many wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) must limit ammonia in discharge. Mike Rousey, Hach Company

    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.
