Separation & Clarification White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Get A Big Bang For Your Buck With A Smart Selection
    11/20/2017

    The Huber Technology EscaMAX® gives control over what gets in the stream whereas their previous process gave them no way to prevent rag balls from flowing into pumps and mixers and causing slowdowns and clogs.

  2. Plants Are Transformed When Rag Reduction Makes More Room For Treatment
    11/20/2017

    Efficiency goals met! Life expectancy of expensive variable frequency drives increased! Ragging build-up on selector mixers all but eliminated! Reduction of debris from 25-30 gallons to a few handfuls! Highest possible percentage of inorganics removed from flow! Plant kept in amazingly consistent treatment mode! These are not the dreams of treatment plant supervisors but are actual results produced by EscaMAX® Perforated Screens.

  3. Clearing Channels And Tanks Of Rag And Fiber Produces Benefits Beyond The Tanks
    11/20/2017

    Reduction of ragging is merely one of the benefits the EscaMAX® Perforated Plate Screen bestows upon its implementer. But this is such a huge factor, that mitigating it brings night-and-day results in other areas such as reducing debris in the grit channel, increasing space for energy-producing biosolids in tanks, and releasing cleaner end products. 

  4. Fats, Oils & Grease Are No Longer A Struggle at Napa Sanitation District
    7/19/2017

    The Huber Technology Strainpress has helped Napa Sanitation District maximize its investment in the FOG receiving and injection system by improving operations, ensuring the protection of downstream components and enhancing the production of a valuable, revenue generating asset.

  5. Fort Worth Turns A Liability Into An Asset
    7/19/2017

    Fort Worth Village Creek has gone far beyond managing its scum. The plant has implemented an efficient way to continuously skim the scum out of the channel flow and effectively process it through anaerobic co-digestion so that its resulting methane gas is useable. In short, the liability was turned into an asset.

  6. Plant Solves Headworks Screening Challenge
    6/22/2017

    Oostburg’s Black River Falls facility is a lean operation with limitations in space for screening technology and in the staff resources available to manage, maintain and report on the Village’s processes. Even though space was limited, Oostburg knew that putting a headworks screening solution in place would improve their operational efficiency. Oostburg found the perfect solution using the Huber Technology RoK4 confined space vertical screen.

  7. Sticking with Innovation That Works
    3/28/2017

    With a population of about 15,000, Steinbach is the third largest city in Manitoba and one of the fastest growing areas in Canada. The current system has been operating since 1993, an eternity in the world of technology. Because the wastewater department was already familiar with operating the existing Xylem/Flygt M&C SCADA system with Aquaview software and APP controllers, they decided to inquire what new technologies the company could offer. Read the full case study to learn more.

  8. Simply Solving The Grit Problem
    2/27/2017

    The grit particle is a microscopic menace that still confounds many wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators. It is not always easy to recognize how much grit is costing you in equipment wear, maintenance, and energy usage, let alone to know the best way to rid your plant of it.

  9. Lime Slaker System Reduces Operating Costs And Increases Sustainability At WTP
    2/2/2017

    The West African City of Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire has historically provided drinking water to its five million residents from water treatment plants that use hydrated lime systems. But because of the high content of carbon dioxide in the local groundwater, up to 160 ppm, setting the water to calcium carbonate equilibrium using hydrated lime was economically, operationally and environmentally challenging for the city of Abidjan.

  10. WTP Chooses A-758 Plus™ Lime Slaker Systems To Replace Existing Systems
    12/6/2016

    The Albert R. Davis Water Treatment Plant (WTP) in Austin, Texas, is one of three water treatment plants supplying drinking water to the greater Austin metropolitan area. The plant was built in 1954 and has had multiple upgrades over the years, increasing its capacity to 118 million gallons per day (MGD).
