Albertville WWTP Uses Biogas Blower To Replace Natural Gas To Fuel Boilers

As part of an ongoing effort to improve efficiency and lifecycle costs across all of its projects, a Municipal Utilities Board in Albertville, Ala.,set out to upgrade solids handling at the WWTP and pursue Class A biosolids certification, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designation for dewatered and heated sludge that contains low levels of pathogens.

    In California, Come Rain Or Shine, Upfront Efficiency Is Always In Style

    Caught between a withering drought and floods from winter storms, California faces the worst of both worlds—dealing with scarcity as well as stormwater.  America, and much of the world, is watching to see how this trendsetting state handles those challenges.  After generations of setting America’s style, from cowboys to Beatniks to Beach Boys to Silicon Valley billionaires, California can set perhaps its most important trend yet—it can lead the way to a more water-efficient America.  It has to.  The good news is that it can.

  • Expanded Use Of Split Seal Technology For Large Pumps And Agitators New advances in split mechanical seals have expanded its application for use in both water and wastewater systems. These systems move vast amounts of fluid through pipes and tanks. Water-based fluid systems comprise the largest fluid transport systems in the world with wastewater streams being the largest. While the systems’ designs can vary by region, most use centrifugal pumps to move fluid. Many of the centrifugal pumps are very large and difficult to assemble, so they have not typically been sealed by mechanical seals which require total equipment disassembly. However, split mechanical seals have advanced so that these pumps can now be sealed without equipment disassembly.

    There is no doubt that reverse osmosis (RO) currently reigns among desalination techniques, if your metric is total number of installations. But a new competitor has arisen, at least for particular applications. If you have brackish water in the 2,000 to 15,000 ppm range of total dissolved solids (TDS), you may want to consider electrodialysis (ED) over RO.
