Drinking Water Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Pretreatment Using Micro-Media Filtration
    8/2/2010

    This paper describes a filtration system that uses a unique micro-media. The small particle size of this media ensures a high level of filtration efficiency, while still maintaining the benefit of a relatively lower capital cost and high solids loading. Case studies are presented for the treatment of various waters. By Michael Sheedy, Phillip Simmons, Rusi Kapadia, Eco-Tec Inc.

  2. Continuous Phosphate Monitoring Improves Reliability
    11/11/2013

    When municipalities choose to manually feed phosphates into their potable water, this often creates an over-feed of chemicals. Learn how employing an automatic-dosing phosphate analyzer can reduce operating costs and improve reliability.

  3. Poison In The Water: How To Defeat Toxic Algae
    5/18/2015

    Like many municipalities, Hamilton, Ontario, is wary of harmful algal blooms and toxic cyanobacteria. To mitigate the threat and protect drinking water, a proactive, risk-based plan was developed.

  4. Aquatech Treats A Tertiary Effluent Wastewater Project In India
    11/5/2009

    To bridge the gap between demand and supply and to have reliable power supply to the capital city of Delhi, a 330 MW combined cycle Gas Turbine Power Project - Pragati Power Project (PPP) – was set up on a fast track basis. By Aquatech International Corporation

  5. White Paper: The Leopold® Clari-DAF™ System For Membrane Pretreatment
    5/12/2006
    The idea that membranes could be used for solids removal and concentration in potable water treatment schemes has been known for hundreds of years. It has only been in the past 50 years or so that reverse osmosis membranes for treating brackish waters or sea water have been considered a cost-effective viable alternative. More recently, the membrane suppliers have produced low-pressure membranes that are applied in current treatment process schemes to enhance the water quality effluent required to meet additional regulatory guidelines
  6. SEPAREL Available In External Perfusion And Internal Perfusion Varieties
    2/6/2017

    SEPAREL hollow fiber membrane modules from the DIC Corporation provide exceptional degasification performance with a proprietary non-porous membrane which utilizes a Surface Skin membrane (SS membrane) for enhanced degasification. Available in both internal perfusion (PF series) and external perfusion (EF Series) varieties, SEPAREL modules are optimized for a variety of degassing applications.

  7. Rural Water Plant Finds Leak With Clamp-On Flowmeter
    1/31/2016

    A rural water treatment plant in the Southwestern U.S. treats, stores, and distributes 325,00 gallons per day of water to the village it serves. The village consumes an average of 125,000 gallons a day and can store up to 1 million gallons. Unfortunately, the treatment plant was also losing 210,000 gallons a day due to an unknown leak.

  8. The Next Generation In Water Filtration For The Oil And Gas Industry
    4/17/2013

    There is a need in many segments of the oil and gas production industry for an improvement in water filtration over traditional methods. By Michael Dejak, P.Eng. 

  9. Accurate Gas Flow Measurement Improves Water Disinfection Process Efficiency
    12/3/2017

    Many of today’s large urban water treatment plants rely upon sophisticated chlorination processes in order to provide clean, sanitary water to millions of consumers in the US and around the globe. The efficiency and cost-effective operation of chlorination processes in water treatment facilities can be significantly improved with the installation of flow meters that accurately measure the flow of chlorine gas in the treatment process
