Separation & Clarification White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Finescreen Helps Plant Operate On Cruise Control
    4/29/2016

    As part of the new facility for the City of Clinton, the plant installed a new finescreen as an integral part of the operations. What they discovered was not only a reliable and durable technology but the automated feature of the system was transformational for plant operations. Read what they have to say.

  2. Considering Inline Sludge Screens — Municipal And Industrial Applications
    3/8/2016

    How do I remove screenings from my sludge? Even when screens are installed at the head of a treatment facility, debris always ends up in the sludge. Plastic parts and fibrous materials can cripple operation of important downstream technologies.

  3. Pump Station’s Non-Dispersibles Problem: Solved
    9/17/2015

    Sun City, AZ, has had the same wastewater treatment plant since the '70s, along with a new, expensive problem: non-dispersible waste.

  4. Monsters Protect Pump Station, Weather Storms In Scotland
    7/14/2015

    Pump blockages and rags are a significant barrier to energy and operational efficiencies at pump stations, causing unscheduled shut downs, safety hazards for operators, costly equipment repairs and increased power usage due to a decrease in the pumps’ hydraulic performance. Scottish Water observed these negative effects caused by an influx of wipes and rags throughout a network of area pump stations. Engineers looked to a proven, powerful solution in the form of two JWC Environmental Channel Monster® grinders at one of their most problematic sites.

  5. Macerator Explodes, Monster Sludge Grinder Takes Over
    6/30/2015

    The Coeur D’Alene, ID, wastewater treatment plant was having continual problems with two sludge macerators, in part because of the durability of the macerator.

  6. 10K Muffin Monster Takes Over When Macerators Can’t Cut It
    6/3/2015

    The Cibolo Creek Municipal Authority (CCMA) provides regional wastewater services for the area northeast of San Antonio, Texas and serves the surrounding communities. After years of frustration in dealing with severe problems with plugging of the pump suction lines that led to frequent pump rebuilds, they turned to the 10K Muffin Monster. The 10K Muffin Monster now plays an integral role in this water reclamation plant’s system by grinding the primary sludge and debris that is pumped to the digesters.

  7. Upgrade Of Channel Monster Cuts Wipes Problem And $78k From Electrical Bill
    6/3/2015

    Keeping up with both the water needs and sewage disposal of the Santa Margarita Water District has come with significant challenges, particularly due to both the increase in influent and change in the makeup and durability of the sewage running through the district’s reclaimed-water facility.

  8. BioCon®: A Class A Solution
    3/17/2015

    The Picnic Point Wastewater Treatment Facility was faced with reaching their plant processing capacity. The plant was sending its biosolids to be incinerated and part of this challenge was to find a way to manage the biosolids produced by this facility. Hauling and disposing of this sludge was difficult and becoming expensive. It was desirable to have a Class A biosolid to alleviate this concern and be more environmentally conscious.

  9. North Carolina Treatment Plant Eliminates Taste And Odor Issues With Ozonation
    3/9/2015

    Enactment of the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule and the Stage 2 Disinfectant-Disinfection Byproduct Rule (D/DBPR) will require both large and small drinking water utilities to reduce total organic carbon (TOC), Cryptosporidium, and disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in the treated drinking water distributed to the public.

  10. Wastewater Treatment System Achieves Stringent Water Quality Discharge Limits And Reduces Costs
    3/9/2015

    The Village of Johnson Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) was among the first in the state of Vermont to meet newly enacted secondary treatment requirements when it began operation in 1970.
