  1. Upcoming Tech: Alternatives To Coal-Based Activated Carbon, Magnetite Ballasted, And More

    In this Water Online interview, Paul Rice of Evoqua talks about the company’s variety of technologies which span across a wide range of water treatment solutions. One highlight is Evoqua’s AquaCarb CX, a coconut shell-based activated carbon that offers an alternative to coal-based activated carbon for removing disinfection byproducts, tastes, and odors.

  2. Coconut Shell Activated Carbon

    Jim Knepper, Vice President of Sales for Jacobi Carbons, discusses the growth of the Company and the advantages of coconut shell activated carbon in complying with the EPA’s disinfection byproduct phase II ruling.

  3. Can’t Keep Up? Partner With A Manufacturers’ Rep To Sustain Growth

    Rich Cavagnaro, President of AdEdge Water Technologies, and Tom Carmody, President of TC Tech LLC, share how their companies have partnered to successfully grow business in the advanced water treatment technology space.

  4. Key Trends In Water And Wastewater Treatment: Non-Chemical Disinfection, Remote Management, And Urbanization

    Rick VanSant, President and CEO of UV Pure Technologies, explains some of the key trends currently shaping the water and wastewater market, including non-chemical disinfection, remote management, and urbanization.

  5. A True Lifesaver: Grundfos Provides Key Element For High-Quality Water

    The facilities run by the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics have strict standards for water quality, as staff must protect the very sensitive equipment and patients under their care. Safeguarding against such threats as Legionella, there is no room for treatment system downtime. As maintenance issues with the network's existing water treatment systems became ever-increasing, a new technology was sought.

  6. Will Peracetic Acid Replace Chlorine?

    Chlorine has long been a water treatment staple, but it’s not without its complications. As an alternative, some treatment facilities have been turning to peracetic acid (PAA) and enjoying several key advantages.

  7. Drumming Up Chemical Injection

    The operating ranges for chemical injection need to be large because of the variability of flow in many treatment operations. As Bill McDowell, Vice President of Operations with Blue White Industries explains in this Water Talk interview, “You might be down to as low as 5 or 10 milliliters a minute and then one hour later; you might need to pump 15 gallons a minute out of the same pump and through the same sensor.”

  8. LA Story: Advanced Treatment, Reuse Saves Scarce Water Resources

    Officials in Los Angeles have grown tired of importing water, which is an expensive, unsustainable response to the region's persistent drought. The smarter solution, they concluded, is to reuse local resources through advanced purification and aquifer recharge. But how do you ensure safety and efficiency before committing to a treatment technology? A unique piloting tool from Xylem’s Wedeco brand offered the city clear answers.

  9. Ozonia M and FiltraFast Provide New Options For Treatment Facilities

    If you don’t need the performance of an ultrafiltration membrane but also want to avoid the large footprint of a conventional media filter, you might want to consider FiltraFast extreme rate compressible media filters. As Ryan Hess, Director of Advanced Separation with SUEZ Water Technologies suggests in this Water Talk interview, “They provide roughly ten times the hydraulic loading rate of conventional media filters.”

  10. Advanced Water Treatment Solutions To Solve The Modern Treatment Puzzle

    Advanced treatment solutions continue to evolve as 1,4-Dioxin, N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) removal and Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCPs) appear on the regulatory horizon. Many times, advanced treatment requires combinations of different products in the treatment process.
