  Introducing Claros Water Intelligence System From Hach

Changing regulations, unpredictable influent levels, and instrument downtime are all problems plant operators encounter. Without a clear picture of their water or data, operators face uncertainty about efficiency and compliance. Imagine the time savings, cost reductions, and peace of mind that a complete “water intelligence system” could provide. Claros™, the Water Intelligence System from Hach®, focuses on instrument, data, and process management to help reduce uncertainty and increase operational confidence.

A Cut Above: Keys To Grinder Pump Success
By Ryan Sura, HOMA Pump Technology, Inc.

Wastewater lift stations collect every type of debris. From wipes to t-shirts, from rocks to boards, some strange materials end up in the wet well. Unfortunately, some of these items don’t make it through the pump. Many operators have spent Super Bowl Sunday pulling a clogged pump to remove stringy rag balls or other debris. And in severe cases, sanitary sewer overflows result in regulatory fines.

Affordable Sewer For Small Communities
By Orenco Systems, Inc.

Affordability and maintainability are two of the greatest challenges small municipalities face when constructing and managing sewer infrastructure. With these challenges in mind, it’s important for small cities to choose wisely when investing in a wastewater system that needs to last for 30 to 60 years.

Hot CIP Sanitization Procedure For 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors In Stainless-Steel Housings
By 3M Separation and Purification Sciences Division

Hot clean-in-place (CIP) sanitization is commonly used to combat microbial growth in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries. Performed frequently as a prevention strategy, hot water sanitization is a requirement for high purity water (HPW) for United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.).

Improving Influent Screen Washing For A Fraction Of The Estimated Cost
By Vaughan Company

The use of Vaughan's self-priming chopper pump and nozzles upstream of the influent screens is increasing the amount of fecal matter passing through the influent screens, which in turn improves plant efficiency and greatly increases the amount of cogenerated electricity from digester gas.

ZS Oil-Free Rotary Screw Blowers Installed At Six Water Treatment Plants In The UK
By Atlas Copco Airpower Compressor Technique

The latest phase of the project has seen ZS blowers installed at the Little Eaton Water Treatment Works in Derbyshire, which supplies safe, clean drinking water to the growing community in the city’s Northwest area. Over time, it became clear that the site’s RGF process required a significant overhaul in order to improve operational efficiency, which would require the replacement of its existing blower installation.
