  1. Degassing Module Helps Nobel Prize Winners Degas 50,000 Tons Of Ultrapure Water

    Separel is a degassing module produced by Sun Chemical Advanced Materials to remove dissolved oxygen from liquid. Originally developed to remove oxygen from ink, the product also has application in the water industry.

  2. De Nora Doubles Down On Innovation

    With 29 locations, 1,600 employees and research facilities in Japan, Italy and the United States, DeNora is one of the largest disinfection and filtration companies in the world. As Gary Lohse, Regional Sales Manager for De Nora, explains in this Water Online Radio interview, the acquisition of the former Severn Trent manufacturing division coupled with De Nora’s product innovation strength is driving enhancements to some of the most respected brands in the water industry.

  3. RWL Water Projects Run The Gamut

    Discussing the projects that RWL Water has been involved with in 2016, you understand just how variable the world of water treatment really is.

  4. Selecting The Right Membrane For The Job

    In this Water Online Radio exclusive interview, Fred Wiesler, Global Director of Sales for the QUA Group, discusses some of the company’s key products, including the EnviQ that uses a flat sheet PVDF membrane, and has a .04-micron pore size. It provides ultrafiltration quality water, with the strength of a PVDF flat sheet membrane.

  5. Beyond SCADA: Doing More With More

    The turning point for Rudy Engert came when Georgia ran out of water. Faced with severe water shortages, the state was literally weeks away from water rationing. Engert decided it was time to think about the water and wastewater industry differently.

  6. Preventing Backflow

    There are lots of applications in the water and wastewater industry that need backflow prevention. Stormwater drainage systems are a perfect example.  As Mike Duer, Chief Engineer with Red Valve Company explains in this Water Online Radio interview, “water will backflow through the drainage pipe at high tide, come up through the inlets and cause flooding.”

  7. SUEZ Looks To Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Water Sector

    Eric Gernath, CEO of Suez North America, sees a huge correlation between climate change and water. In what the Company calls the circular revolution, Gernath’s mission is to reduce greenhouse gas by recovering, reusing and recycling water as well as minimizing energy consumed in water and wastewater treatment.

  8. Finer Screenings Requires Headworks Innovation

    Over the past ten years, the trend in headworks has been to finer and finer screenings. As expensive to replace downstream processes are adopted, operators are looking to minimize fouling by screening out more trash. Examples of such processes would be membrane bioreactors (MBRs) and moving bed biofilm reactors (MBBRs), which are highly sensitive to trash.

  9. Decentralized Membrane Treatment Technology

    In the early 90s, Bio-Microbics introduced membrane treatment technology, traditionally used in drinking water treatment plants, to the decentralized treatment market. In this Water Online Radio interview, Jennifer Cisneros, Director of Marketing for Bio-Microbics and Chair of the National Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association’s Marketing Committee, discusses the use of the onsite technology at an oyster bar where Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN) was about three times the level of ammonia.

  10. Flow Measurement Meets Advanced Metering Infrastructure

    As utilities update their metering to automatic meter reading (AMR) or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems, integration with measurement devices in the distribution system has many benefits. McCrometer’s Dan Hardin recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the flow measurement company’s Smart Output protocol that allows mag meters to connect to a water district’s AMI/AMR system.
