Drinking Water Disinfection [Case Studies White Paper]

  1. Using Ozone To Remove Micropollutants From Wastewater
    12/1/2014

    Micropollutants in our wastewater are a growing problem and so is the concern for the long-term hazard to the ecosystem.

  2. Rainwater For Reuse As Drinking Water
    1/11/2013

    When McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario built their new Engineering Technology Building, they used the latest state-of-the-art technology not only to achieve LEED Gold certification, but also to create a living laboratory to train students on the building systems of the future.

  3. Systems Work In Series To Increase Filter Run Times, Reduce Water Use, And Improve Finished Water Quality
    3/25/2015

    The city of Florence, Colorado Water Treatment Plant (WTP), located 75 miles south of Denver, uses blended surface water taken from the city’s southernmost water reservoir.

  4. Water Treatment Plant Solves Taste And Odor Problems And High Toxin Levels
    3/20/2015

    Phoenix is one of the country’s fastest growing metropolitan areas and has one of the most arid desert climates. Population growth coupled with increasingly stringent water regulations pushed the city to proactively address future water supply concerns. The decision was made to build the Lake Pleasant Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and include oxidation and disinfection treatment barriers.

  5. UVC LEDs For Biofilm Prevention
    8/4/2015

    Biofilm has adverse effects on all types of instruments, sensors, and equipment used in power plants, food and beverage production plants, desalination facilities, paper mills, and marine environments. This includes growth on pipelines, tanks, heat exchangers, reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, and other equipment. Biofilms can cause reduction of heat transfer, increased pressure drop and corrosion of metallic surfaces, and many forms of contamination. 

  6. Maximum Ozone Transfer Efficiency Across Broad Range Of Water Flow
    4/25/2017

    The design team for the intermediate ozone system at Buckingham Water Treatment Plant, Quebec, had limited space available for ozone contacting for the plant’s 1.3 – 7.4 MGD flow, so a standard fine bubble diffusion basin for ozone disinfection was not an option.

  7. ORP Based Measurement Of Oxidizing Disinfectants In Aqueous Solutions
    9/22/2011

    Oxidizing antimicrobials, such as chlorine, are common disinfectants used to treat water. Test strips, DPD kits, and colorimeters are currently the most popular methods for determining the relative disinfecting power of oxidizing antimicrobial agents in these applications. By Myron L Company

  8. Small UV Plant Is Designed To Address Cultural And Safe Drinking Water Needs Cost-Effectively
    10/28/2014

    BI Pure Water worked with University of British Columbia researchers and Lytton First Nation to develop a water disinfection system that addresses the needs of native communities, both cultural values as well as the basic necessity of clean drinking water.

  9. Midlothian, TX, Expands Water Treatment Plant With A Safe, Reliable Disinfection System
    8/15/2016

    When the City of Midlothian, Texas, was ready to expand their water treatment plant to accommodate a growing population, they carefully considered and investigated their water disinfection options.

  10. 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.
