Collection Systems White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Fort Worth Turns A Liability Into An Asset
    7/19/2017

    Fort Worth Village Creek has gone far beyond managing its scum. The plant has implemented an efficient way to continuously skim the scum out of the channel flow and effectively process it through anaerobic co-digestion so that its resulting methane gas is useable. In short, the liability was turned into an asset.

  2. Technology Change Radically Improves Dewatering Results
    7/10/2017

    Huber Technology Q-Press® replaced a belt filter press at the Robinson WWTP. The retrofit enabled the plant operations staff to maximize technology to make tremendous improvements in their dewatering performance and sludge storage and distribution processes. The technology change resulted in radical improvements to operations and reductions in costs. Read more.

  3. Headworks International Takes Valatie, New York, From “Rags To Riches!”
    7/6/2017

    The first Santa Claus Club in the United States was formed in 1946 by World War II veterans to provide gifts for critically ill children in the village of Valatie, New York.  It has since grown to the point that on Christmas Eve, a Santa visits every child in the village below the age of 10 and gives him a gift.  

  4. Automated Solar Sludge Drying Frees Up Personnel
    6/6/2017

    Solar dryers are fully automated to feed, move, and discharge biosolids cost-effectively. Even climate changes throughout the year are easily monitored and controlled to produce optimal output. Installation is very flexible with options to add components at a later date. Full automation means employees seldom need to enter the greenhouse and are free to use their time elsewhere.

  5. A Sunny Outlook For Tooele City Water Reclamation Facility
    6/6/2017

    The City of Tooele, UT was looking to update their Bio-Solids program and move away from a limiting Class B product. They needed to produce a more flexible reusable material. The City found the Huber Technology SOLSTICE® to be the perfect solution and was pleased to discover the technology to be simple to maintain as well as provide a cost-effective operation. Find out how the dryer raised the quality of the bio-product to Class A.

  6. Significant Upgrades Enable City Of Atherton To Meet State’s DNR Discharge Requirements
    6/6/2017

    Built in the 1980s, Little Blue Valley Sewer District operates Atherton, which was designed to reduce the primary process chain to preliminary bar screening and aerated grit removal, while relying solely on secondary treatment performed in four, standalone 42-ft by 400-ft aeration/clarification basins. Read the full case study to learn how upgrading the activated sludge process with a combination of Xylem’s Flygt pumps and mixers created a solution for the city’s sewer district.

  7. Center Feed Drum Screen Is Mission Critical To World Class MBR Plant
    4/25/2017

    North Las Vegas has installed some of the largest rotary fine screens operating in the United States. The center feed drum screens are critical to protecting the membrane bioreactor, enabling the plant to maintain extremely low turbidity coming off their plant that is better than most potable water. Read how they are putting the ROTAMAT RPPS to work.

  8. The Truth About Clogged Pumps
    4/19/2017

    The sky is blue, grass is green, and, someday, your pumps are going to clog. It’s just another fact of life — or is it? 

  9. Sludge Thickener Delivers Savings & Improvements
    4/18/2017

    The comparison between the new Huber S-Disc and the existing centrifuge gave plant staff several improvements to celebrate. Download the full case study to read more.

  10. Significant Energy Saving Resulting From Change Of Thickening Technology
    4/7/2017

    During the summer of 2015 the Waging WWTP in the Bavarian Chiemgau district was desperately looking for an energy-efficient, high-performance sludge thickening plant to replace the centrifuge they had been using. The objective was to optimize digester capacity, gas yield and sludge handling in the overall process on site. Read more about their successful implementation.
