Drinking Water Filtration Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Membrane Treatment Of Groundwater
    4/2/2015

    The groundwater that a southern Louisiana water utility supplies to local residents has traditionally carried a high amount of organic material and color. In the past, the organics were oxidized and broken down by chlorination, but this practice had gone out of favor due to production of disinfection by-products (DBPs) such as Trihalomethanes (THMs) and Haloacidic Acids (HAAs).

  2. New Membrane Technology Handles High Solids, Aids Water Reuse
    2/18/2015

    As global conditions place more stress on water resources, a great deal of attention is being paid to water reuse technologies, particularly those that facilitate the reuse of the next level of difficult-to-treat or highly variable raw water sources.

  3. Integration Of Membrana Ultrafiltration And Gas Transfer Membrane Technologies Produces High Quality Water And Controls Corrosion In Cooling Water System
    2/11/2015

    By incorporating Membrana UF and Gas Transfer Membrane (GTM) a resort customer was able to reduce the risk of contaminating its cooling water and protect other system components from corrosion. The compact systems exceeded performance expectations and reduced maintenance and operating costs while maximizing the available space.

  4. Remote Diagnostics Will Reduce Service Costs And Increase Uptime Of Filtration Systems
    2/5/2015

    Filtration OEMs can use built-in device diagnostics to monitor and maintain automation component performance.

  5. Automation Solutions For Fixed-Bed Filters
    2/5/2015

    Handwheel or automated process valve? The worldwide trend is clearly moving towards automation, because it reduces energy and water consumption, especially rinsing water, and increases plant availability. Pneumatic automation of a fixed-bed filter is a good example of this.

  6. AltaPac™ AP-II Ultrafiltration Membrane Case Study
    12/23/2014

    Cibola is a small community located in Southern Arizona along the Colorado River. With a growing population, the community decided to install a centralized water system to replace individual wells.

  7. Antiscalant Impacts Water Reclamation Efforts
    12/17/2014

    Water reuse efforts in the West Coast are a priority and have the Ground Water Replenishing System (GWRS) of the Orange County Water District (OCWD) utilizing new technologies for water conservation. 

  8. Water Utility Turns To State-Of-The-Art UV Technology To Help Address Drought
    11/24/2014

    The 2013 year was the driest in recorded history with many areas of the San Joaquin Valley reporting groundwater levels more than 100 feet below previous historical lows. 

  9. Water Supply Needs At Odds With Regional Demands To Lower Power Use
    11/21/2014

    The shoreline of the Red Sea is a dazzling destination for tourists and locals to experience the beach and enjoy marine activities. In Egypt, the shoreline sprawls from the Suez Canal in the north, down to the southern part of the country bordering Sudan.

  10. Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality
    8/13/2014

    Kibbutz Reim had to convert salty groundwater into a high quality irriga­tion resource in this desert-like region. High recovery was essential to this customer, both because of the limited amount of groundwater available and the challenge of brine disposal from their inland location.
