The coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has created a lot of health concerns and has put our communities’ safety at risk. The nation’s experience thus far with the novel coronavirus has demonstrated how important it is to have a strong immune system. This is the body’s army, which, when helped by a healthy lifestyle, can successfully tackle pathogens.

Solving Pump Clogs Without Spawning A Million New Problems
With all the potential debris running through wastewater collection systems — including higher concentrations of “flushable” wipes than ever — the debate over chopping them to bits, or not, has become a fundamental question for wastewater utilities. Now, new perspectives and new mechanisms are giving wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators new opportunities for cutting the wipes problem down to size.
'Series' Wastewater Pumping Solves Unique Challenge Of High Head Force Mains
In high-head wastewater pumping applications that result from long force mains or high-static heads from hilly terrains, lift station design engineers typically select oversized pumps that sufficiently overcome the inherent friction losses. However, a dramatic reduction in efficiency occurs at the pump operates far from its best efficiency point. In these situations, the use of vacuum-primed pumps arranged in series can achieve higher pumping efficiencies and lower resulting power costs.
Don’t Let Bad Customer Decisions Wipe Out Your Entire Treatment Train
Flushable wipes are wreaking havoc in collection systems and treatment plants around the globe. While this is not a new issue to those in our industry, COVID-19 has made it a mainstream topic as more households consume disinfecting and flushable wipes. The improper disposal of these down the toilet can have negative impacts on the operating cost and efficiency of an entire collection system and treatment train. Here is how nipping the problem at its source can pay dividends throughout the process.
Smart New Approaches To Wastewater Screen Design
Depending on the age and design of wastewater infrastructure, it is easy for screening performance at the headworks of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to get caught between a rock and a hard place. With so many challenges, what can be done to reduce the high risks of performance inefficiency, costly maintenance, or outright equipment failure? Fortunately, next-generation bar screen designs are poised to address these issues.
Insta-Valve 20-24 Provides Needed Control For Infrastructure Expansion
Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed targeted control to connect a million-gallon water tank to a new water treatment center.
Challenges With Calibrating Electromagnetic Flowmeters In The Water And Wastewater Industry
This article focuses on the use of electromagnetic flowmeters in the W/WW industry. It also covers Endress+Hauser’s capabilities to manufacture electromagnetic flowmeters from 1/12” to 120”, calibration, the company’s new innovative sensor with multiple sensing electrode pairs and verifying calibration in place after installation.
