Separation & Clarification White Papers & Case Studies

  1. FlexRake Bar Screens At 24+ Sites Around Houston Were Unaffected By Hurricane Harvey
    9/11/2018

    Despite the destruction of Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, Duperon® wastewater screening systems in the cities of Cuero and Refugio, Texas – approximately 150 miles southwest of Houston – were virtually unaffected by the storm. Duperon’s FlexRake® bar screens, installed at both locations as well as dozens of other sites in and around Houston, remove objects like rags, paper, plastics, and metals to prevent damage and clogging of downstream treatment equipment. Both communities found essentially no damage to their wastewater screening equipment.

  2. STRAINPRESS® Helps Fort Worth Turn A Liability Into An Asset
    7/25/2018

    Scum is not a substance that anyone in a wastewater treatment plants wants to deal with. Scum, the greasy substance that floats to the surface of clarifiers, gets nastier as it accumulates. Some smaller wastewater treatment plants mix their scum back into other processing streams while other larger plants treat their scum separately. The City of Fort Worth takes a unique approach in managing its scum and now turns what was once a liability into an asset.

  3. Solving The Headworks Screening Challenge Of Fitting In Tight Spaces
    6/22/2018

    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.

  4. FlexRake® Celebrates 20 Years Of Continuous Operation In Michigan
    4/26/2018

    In 1997, back before text messaging and cell phones, Duperon Corporation installed the FlexRake® FP Full Penetration Coarse Bar Screen into its first wastewater treatment plant at the City of Adrian, Michigan. The same equipment is in operation today, with all of its original components, with the exception of a motor/drive head bearing replacement. 

  5. Cardston’s Community Relationship Improves With Dewatering Technology Choice
    12/21/2017

    Cardston WWTP’s choice of a dewatering system to replace its belt press, Huber Technology Q-Press®, has a striking comparison to the plant’s previous technology in both the footprint and the attention it requires. The Cardston staff also noticed striking improvements in water separation, end-product dryness and offensive odor by-product.  Read more about how the Q-Press® helped Cardston become a better neighbor.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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. 

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
