Biological Process

  1. Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF)

    Headworks has designed and manufactured DAFs (Dissolved Air Flotation) for many years for the cruise ship industry where the primary goal is always to operate on a small footprint.  As cruise ships can’t simply call a plumber when there is a problem, reliability of the equipment is paramount as well. It was, therefore, only a natural progression for us to expand the line into land based applications. In combination with our MBBR/IFAS solutions Headworks’ DAFs provide a super compact complete core treatment system.

  2. Headworks Integrated Treatment - Compact System

    The Headworks Integrated Treatment - Compact System is a modular, compact, wastewater treatment plant that uses proven moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) technology to treat wastewater – with discharge effluents meeting stringent BNR discharge requirements.

  3. Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) Technology

    Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) processes improve reliability, simplify operation, and require less space than traditional wastewater treatment systems.

  4. Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) Process

    The Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) process is typically installed as a retrofit solution for conventional activated sludge systems that are at or beyond capacity.

  5. Biological Nutrient Removal

    Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) is a process used for nitrogen and phosphorus removal from wastewater before it is discharged into surface or ground water.

  6. Modular HIT System™

    The MBBR/IFAS technology experts at Headworks have developed a smarter way to treat wastewater for reuse. The result is the Headworks Integrated Treatment (HIT™) System: a modular, compact wastewater treatment plant that uses proven moving bed biofilm technology to generate reuse quality water.   

  7. Plant Enhancements & Upgrades

    The process enhancement and low-cost retrofit capabilities of MBBR technologies enables our customers to either improve conventional processes or improve the performance of biological treatment systems to meet more demanding influent characteristics, or more stringent regulatory discharge requirements at reduced costs.

  8. Wastewater Reuse

    As world populations require both more clean water and better ways to dispose of wastewater, the demand for water reclamation will increase.
