Drinking Water Disinfection [Case Studies White Paper]

  1. Case Study: Newport News Uses Emerson Ozone Instrumentation For Safe, Effective Disinfection
    5/22/2006

    Maintaining the quality of the water supply is the top priority for municipal drinking water treatment plants across the country. Water plants use several treatment processes to ensure water quality and safety, and these treatment steps include disinfection. Traditionally, chlorine is used in both primary and secondary disinfection treatments and has been used since 1908. Some water plants are moving to ozone for primary disinfection. One water utility that is taking this direction is Newport News Waterworks. 

  2. Drinking Water Disinfection: Tianjin, China (Case Study)
    1/31/2013

    Favorable reviews of UV technology in wastewater applications influenced Tianjin Economic Development Area (TEDA) Water Supply General Company to investigate the potential of using UV for drinking water applications at one of its water treatment plants. With no previous UV installations for drinking water disinfection in the country, TEDA's process of selecting a UV manufacturer was stringent. We are honored that they chose us and our TrojanUVSwift™ system.

  3. MEMCOR® Continuous Microfiltration System Maximizes Water Resources For The City Of Scottsdale, Arizona
    3/26/2013

    The desert community of Scottsdale, Arizona had no natural surface water sources and a decreasing groundwater supply. Scottsdale had historically treated and disposed of its wastewater.

  4. Product Recovery Through Ozone Oxidation Of Waste Liquor
    9/15/2018

    The manufacturing of soda ash from Trona is a multi-step process that results in the production of a waste liquor that contains significant levels of organic contamination.

  5. Improving The Quality Of Tertiary Effluent For Indirect Potable Reuse With Geographic Constraints
    9/5/2018

    The Mazzei Sidestream Venturi Injection – Pipeline Flash Reactor System provides a feasible alternative for dissolution of ozone at the Clark County Water Reclamation District (CCWRD) in Las Vegas, because it allowed for flexibility in basin design to meet geographic site constraints.

  6. Mitigating Environmental Impact Of Gold Mine’s Wastewater Through Ozone Oxidation And Aquifer Re-injection
    9/5/2018

    Installing and operating an ozone oxidation system for wastewater remediation at a gold mine located in a remote region of Alaska is full of challenges.

  7. Oregon Utilizes Encore 700 Metering Pumps To Ensure Reliability And Accuracy
    8/15/2016

    The City of Salem uses a slow sand filtration water treatment process, which uses naturally occurring biological activity to clean drinking water. The water treatment facility treats an average of 30 MGD throughout most of the year, with a peak of 50 MGD in the summer.

  8. Technical Support And Service Are Key In A Place “Way Outside Of Ordinary”
    7/12/2018

    Rangely is a remote town with a population of just over 2,200 people located in the upper northwest area of Colorado, thirteen miles from the Utah border. During the course of their routine maintenance, operators noticed problems with a distribution pump. Read the full project profile to learn how Process Solutions’ trained service technicians were able to walk them through a series of diagnostics to further isolate the problem and get the system was back up and running in a short period of time.

  9. Why All The Hype About Chlorine Gas Safety?
    9/16/2014

    Remember when “Little Old Lady” Clara Peller rolled up to the drive-through window of Big Bun and asked “Where’s the beef?” She was asking a literal question, but also making a figurative statement. 

  10. Dissolved Air Flotation System Reduces Costs, Improves Process
    3/1/2015

    With the town of Johnstown, CO's, water treatment plant began operating its circular clarifier systems at maximum capacity to meet summer peak demand rates, consultants recommeded increasing plant capacity and using dissolved air flotation technology for their clarification process.
