Drinking Water Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Ultrafiltration And Reverse Osmosis Testing On Tertiary Effluent From The North City Water Reclamation Plant
    4/22/2016

    Ultrafiltration (UF) membranes have already gained worldwide acceptance in the treatment of drinking water for their removal of chlorine resistant pathogens such as cryptosporidium. Tertiary treatment with UF has been established, although with a lower level of knowledge and number of installations. This paper will discuss the performance of hollow fiber UF/MF membrane modules in treating tertiary effluent, and the subsequent performance of the downstream RO membranes.

  2. Bury A SITRANS MAG Sensor? Sure!
    11/25/2015

    A large east coast water supplier faced a number of challenges with one of its pumping stations. It was built more than 35 years ago on a 25’ earth mound (“ant hill”) to protect it from flooding, the pumping station was becoming very expensive and inefficient to operate.

  3. Produce Potable And Pharmaceutical Grade Water From Problematic Brackish Water

  5. Integrated Membrane Facility In The City Of Delaware, Ohio
    10/11/2017

    To better comply with the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2) the City of Delaware (Ohio) piloted Torayfil hollow-fiber PVDF membrane modules to treat surface water for their 7.2 mgd full-scale facility. After significant review of the data, cost, and other factors, the City and URS selected Toray to utilize in the full scale design. Read the full case study to learn more.

  6. 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.

  7. Arsenic Removed From Drinking Water With Iron Oxide Adsorption Treatment
    10/29/2013

    When high levels of arsenic were found in the drinking water in the community of Alto Lampa outside of Santiago de Chile, municipal water provider Aguas Adinas faced a predicament. AdEdge Water Technologies was contacted to design a treatment approach. This case study describes how iron oxide adsorption helped Alto Lampa reduce arsenic levels in treated water to non-detectable concentrations.

  8. Factors Affecting Treatment Of Iron, Manganese And Hydrogen Sulfide With Chlorination And Manganese Dioxide
    6/19/2017

    There are different treatment processes used to remove iron and manganese from groundwater for potable water supplies.  While there are various less commonly used treatment methods available (such as ion exchange), most treatment systems for iron and manganese oxidize the ferrous soluble state of iron to a ferric state so the solid particles can then be filtered out.  

  9. Brewed To Perfection; Fifth Largest Brewery Installs RO Units
    4/9/2015

    With water shortages and energy costs increasing worldwide, brewers are turning to state-of-the-art technologies to access water and use it more conservatively.

  10. Manufacturing Plants Based On The Lego Principle
    5/2/2017

    Small batches and multiple products in the same plant — these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers need to adjust. The answer is based on the "Lego principle."
