  • Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant
    Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant

    In spite of the recent abundance of water, many of California’s aquifers continue to balance on the edge of water scarcity. Decades of overpumping have reduced the amount of ground water available to supplement surface water resources diminished by drought. The Pure Water Monterey Ground Water Replenishment Project (Monterey Pure), addressed the need to replenish a local aquifer, by piloting Advanced Water Treatment (AWT) processes, to determine the best method to convert secondary wastewater into a pure water resource.

    Value-Based Procurement – Steps In The Right Direction

    Water and wastewater equipment manufacturers have long advocated for changing the mindset of equipment procurement from low-bid to lowest life-cycle cost evaluation, as a means to encourage the growth of new technologies and to improve operating costs. This is a very daunting task. As a manufacturer, Aerzen faces the same challenge. We encourage the consulting engineers to compare manufacturers based on energy savings.

  • How To Calculate Backwash Flow Rate Requirements For Iron Filter Systems
    How To Calculate Backwash Flow Rate Requirements For Iron Filter Systems

    While there are various less common types of treatment systems used to remove iron and manganese from groundwater (such as ion exchange and ultra-filtration), most treatment systems use some form of oxidation and filtration to oxidize the clear state of iron to a solid form so the solid particles can then be filtered out.

Kynar PVDF Jet Aerator For Improved Wear Resistance Kynar PVDF Jet Aerator For Improved Wear Resistance

Ten years ago, KLa Systems was presented with the challenge of finding a more wear-resistant material for our jet aeration nozzles.  The inner nozzle is the liquid propulsion nozzle of the jet aerator and continuously sees high volumes of motive liquid flow at velocities ranging from 33-46 ft/s.  Traditionally, these inner jet nozzles were made from the same FRP material as the outer jet with the industry accepted corrosion/abrasion liner made up of C-Glass/Nexus and Silicon Carbide impregnated into the vinylester resin.  For many years this material had held up in most industrial and municipal bioprocesses with no adverse deterioration or wear.
