For optimal results, Clearas has partnered with Endress+Hauser for dependable products and reliable technical expertise.

  4. Exceeding Phosphorus Limits Required For Environmental Wastewater Reuse
    9/7/2016

    In 2002, Georgia’s City of Flowery Branch faced strict new requirements about discharging water back into nearby Lake Lanier, a community drinking water source, compelling the city to find an alternative wastewater system. After a thorough evaluation of various wastewater treatment solutions, Pall Corporation’s Aria FLEX membrane system was selected due to its critical ability to meet the phosphorus limits.

  5. Refinery Expands Production While Meeting Discharge Standards Quality
    8/5/2016

    Petron Bataan Refinery wanted to expand production to process 180 thousand barrels of crude oil per day while changing its feedstock from Arab Light to less costly heavy and sour crudes.

  6. AquaSBR System Installed To Increase Capacity In A Small Footprint

    The West Central Conservancy District (WCCD), located in Hendricks County, IN, was formed to resolve sewer issues that the service area was experiencing with the local utilities company in the mid- ’80s.

  7. WWTF Receives EPA Award For Achieving Low Level Nutrient Limits
    6/9/2016

    Lee Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF), located in Massachusetts, received an award for its excellent treatment performance in 2012 from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 4 years after start-up.

  8. Meet Stringent Phosphorus Limits Under A Wide Range Of Conditions With The CoMag System
    4/27/2016

    The Village of Waterbury Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is located on the Winooski River floodplain, which poses challenges from significant flooding during the spring runoff and storm seasons to strong algal blooms in late spring.

  9. AnoxKaldnes MBBR Proves Effective At Asphalt Refinery
    1/7/2016

    A refinery needed to upgrade the wastewater treatment system to prepare for expected changes brought about by the use of a new crude feedstock with elevated concentrations of TDS and conductivity. Veolia Water Technologies supplied an AnoxKaldnes Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) treatment system to reduce the BOD and ammonia in the effluent.

  10. Utility Transformation — From WWTP To Reuse Facility
    2/19/2015

    Facing state Department of Environmental Quality mandates, an Arizona wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) took on a large-scale expansion project and effluent-quality upgrade to become a state-of-the-art water reclamation facility.
