Collection Systems White Papers & Case Studies

  1. New Septage Receiving Plant Results In Decreased Maintenance
    2/21/2017

    Previously to installing their new Septage Receiving Station 18-Mile Creek WWTP had very little protection from unknown debris entering their plant from haulers. The plant reports that in the time that the RoFAS Septage Drum and WAP Washpress have been operating, they’ve processed many septage loads without issue.

  2. State-Of-The-Art Septage Station Handles Large Volumes Effectively

    When SAWS in San Antonio sought to upgrade their septage collection system they faced challenges beyond what might be normally seen in a typical WWTP. By partnering with Huber Technology, SAWS was able to navigate through challenges and put together a world class system.

  3. Headworks Bar Screens Solve Reweaving Problems At East Greenbush, NY Pump Station - And More!
    2/2/2017

    In the late 1620s, the Dutch immigrants to what was later to become the United States began a settlement on the shores of the Hudson River with a fort being built in 1669. That development has grown into what is now East Greenbush, NY, a small town in upstate New York in the suburbs of Albany, the state Capitol.

  4. Plant Operations And Maintenance Staff Benefits From New Headworks
    2/1/2017

    The high cost of maintenance and unsatisfactory performance of the aging equipment in the Bonnybrook headworks made it clear that significant changes were in order. The older poorly performing headworks allowed screenings to pass to the downstream process units causing operational and maintenance problems. By installing the Huber RakeMax® and matching WAP washpress, Calgary’s process performance immediately improved.

  5. Replaced Screen Brings WWTP From The Stone Age To The Modern Age
    1/29/2017

    Havre WWTP was in search of a replacement solution that would improve their screening process. The old system often became plugged with rags. The City learned quickly to depend on Huber’s RakeMax technology to help it overcome its challenges. The highly effective technology enables the City’s operations to remove such a high percentage of inorganics that the downstream processing are more effective and components are less stressed.

  6. Dependable Operation And Longevity Invaluable To Guelph’s Screening Process
    1/29/2017

    It had become obvious to The City of Guelph that it was time to replace several of the components in its treatment process. Project leaders wanted to upgrade its treatment processes by implementing leading edge technology. By thoroughly researching what was available they choose the technology and vendor that was the best match for their long-term wastewater treatment goals of the City.

  7. WWTP’s Screw Press Reduces Odors, Saves Money, And Takes Up Less Physical Space
    1/6/2017

    A WWTP chooses a new screw press that takes up less than half the space that the old belt press had occupied. This was striking for the operations team but not as striking as the fraction of time they needed to spend managing the screw press.

    12/29/2016

    The benefit from the simple automation capability of the Huber Technology Q-Press® began for Contentnea MSD WWTP shortly after installation. Staff was able to focus elsewhere as little attention was required for the system’s operation. The end-product dryness levels vastly improved which radically reduced their haul off costs. Read more.
