Separation & Clarification White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Pump Station Bar Screen Saves City $26,000 In Labor
    4/15/2014

    New Jersey’s Lower Township Municipal Utilities Authority had a problem. The utilities authority operates a 5 MGD plant, with wastewater inflow arriving through a 48-in pipe routed 23 feet below grade level. Their manual inflow pump screening setup was difficult and hazardous to clean, and its 2.5” screen spacing let entirely too much non-dispersible waste through. Their 3,000 GPM non-clog pumps were constantly clogging, and workers were repeatedly exposed to a hazardous situation.

  2. Clarification System Boosts Capacity, Reduces Maintenance

    Spikes in peak demand at the 3.0 MGD Freedom District Water Treatment Plant in Carroll County, MD, exceeded 70 percent of the plant’s capacity, and the existing clarifier made for a lengthy sludge-removal process. After staff installed a dissolved air flotation (DAF) pretreatment system to improve the efficiency of the membrane filters, the now 4.0 MGD facility has reduced maintenance for operators. The system also safeguards against pathogens that can pass through traditional sand/diatomaceous (S/D) filters.
