Drinking Water Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Reliable Production Of High Quality Permeate For Irrigation
    7/26/2014

    Following one of the driest periods on record in California, farmers in the San Joaquin Valley faced restricted water allocations.

  2. Flow Data Red Flags: When To Act
    12/20/2017

    Accurate flow measurement is critical to most water and wastewater processes. Red flags may pop up to indicate meter problems, but which ones should lead you to act — and when? The answer depends on the type of meter, what it is used for, and whether the readings are local or remote.

  3. Top 10 Considerations When Converting To On-Site Hypochlorite
    12/26/2013

    Transporting pure salt - the raw material needed to generate sodium hypochlorite onsite – is more cost effective, stable, and safer, than transporting and storing bulk sodium hypochlorite, or gaseous/liquid chlorine cylinders from local chemical suppliers. The conversion to on-site hypochlorite generation can be achieved by adhering to these design guidelines.

  4. Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    8/2/2016

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.

  5. 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. 

  6. Case Study: California's Magnolia Power Project Utilizes HERO/Crystallizer Process For ZLD System
    4/6/2006

    The Magnolia Power Project is utilizing state-of-the-art combined-cycle electric generation technology and being built on four acres of Burbank Water and Power’s (BWP) generation station complex adjacent to Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank. The 310-megawatt (MW) power plant will serve as locally operated generation for the cities of Burbank, Anaheim, Glendale, Pasadena, Cerritos and Colton.

  7. Precision Air/Gas Flow Measurement Helps Turn Landfills Into Green Electric Power Generators
    12/1/2017

    A leading supplier of landfill gas extraction and recovery systems located in the Midwest region of the US relies on flow meters from Fluid Components International (FCI) for gas flow measurements in landfills. The company has developed hundreds of landfill gas system flares and extraction system skids that are in operation worldwide, which all require accurate gas flow measurement.

  8. 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.

  9. Retrofit Significantly Reduces Backwash Cycle Interval, Duration And Water Use For Georgia Utility
    5/1/2017

    The North Columbus Resource Facility recently completed a $12-million replacement of its settled water filtration, removing the existing Wheeler filters, their three-part media and 10-inch poured concrete underdrains, which were no longer efficient.

  10. Improving Flow Measurement Accuracy With Flow Conditioners
    12/1/2017

    When looking for a way to reduce plant operating costs, one of the potentially simplest and often least expensive solutions is to measure liquid and gas flow more accurately. Plant upgrade projects that focus on the continuous improvement of flow measurement and control can trim overall production costs by eliminating waste and reducing maintenance costs.
