Collection Systems White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Innovative Thickener Replaces Gravity Thickener And Improves Performance
    4/7/2017

    The Chiquita WRF plant was looking to improve the performance of their existing gravity thickeners better than the 2.3% DS that they were previously achieving. In their search for a solution they discovered the S-Disc technology from Huber Technology.

  2. Disc Thickener Technology Becomes Essential Key Component In Process
    4/7/2017

    BCR Environmental utilizes the Huber Technology S-Disc thickener in their sludge neutralization process. Because the system is both simple and reliable they chose to standardize on the S-Disc. The design of the technology enables the operators easy access to monitor their process. Read how BCR is putting the S-Disc to work.

  3. Creating Reusable Water From Municipal Sewage
    4/4/2017

    Al Shamal is the capital city of the municipality of Madinat ash Shamal in Qatar. With the majority of the town's population not yet connected to a sewer network, there was an immediate need to provide a wastewater treatment plant to treat wastewater generated from the towns' population and small industries. Ashghal, the Public Works Authority of Qatar and its end user, decided to install a tanker discharge facility with a compact sewage treatment plant to produce effluent suitable for reuse in irrigation.

  4. Headworks Bar Screen Just Keeps On Running In Topeka, KS
    3/2/2017

    Headworks International has installations all over the United States and in over 40 other countries.  We are always interested to learn about the community our equipment serves.  One interesting place is Topeka, Kansas.

  5. Simply Solving The Grit Problem
    2/27/2017

    The grit particle is a microscopic menace that still confounds many wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators. It is not always easy to recognize how much grit is costing you in equipment wear, maintenance, and energy usage, let alone to know the best way to rid your plant of it.

  6. 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.

  7. State-Of-The-Art Septage Station Handles Large Volumes Effectively
    2/21/2017

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
