  • 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.

WATER ONLINE FEATURED VIDEOS

Watch the full video for a tour of one of the largest indoor test facilities in North America. By investing in exclusive in-house testing capabilities, we can test some of the world’s largest pumps. As a result, we can verify the performance and energy efficiency of these pumps for a guarantee.

Handling large capacities, the CAPSULAR® Underground Pump Station combines superior performance with custom design and economic efficiency to provide solutions for customers' large flow applications. When compared to built-in-place, concrete designs, 30% savings can be realized with the S&L factory-built approach. Engineering costs are lower because of the extensive engineering (including mechanical, electrical, structural, environmental) already accomplished for the proven CAPSULAR® design. The exclusive Safe-Stair Stairwell Module available with CAPSULAR® Underground Pump Stations is similar to stairways found in most public buildings. The design provides safe and easy access to the underground station, reducing occupational requirements and associated costs.

Engineers challenged by flow meter inaccuracy and repeatability issues will want to watch a new video featuring, “Vortab Flow Conditioners.” This video explains how air, gas and liquid flow measurement can be greatly improved anywhere restricted pipe runs in cramped equipment areas make following the flow meter manufacturer’s pipe straight-run requirements impractical or impossible.

Are you using chemical metering pumps? Do you need a chemical feed solution that is proven to work? Most chemical feed solutions are too complicated, too expensive, and can require long lead times. Our goal is to simplify chemical feed. Our CHEM-FEED® Skids ship fully assembled which will save you time with installation and start-ups.
