Wastewater Case Studies and Whitepapers

  1. SRT Solar Dryer Uses The Sun To Reliably Produce Biosolids

    A water reclamation facility needed to improve their biosolids handling process in their planned expansion. The solution needed to reduce sludge volume, produce reusable material, be simple to maintain, and provide cost effective operation.

  2. Restoration Of Chlorine Scrubbers At EMWD Protects Plant Workers And Neighbors

    In October 2014, Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) selected IMS to clean, inspect, and restore four Bulk Emergency Chlorine Vapor Scrubber Systems.

  3. Case Study: Increased Pressure Removes 'Pressure' For Regional Sewer Authority
    Founded in 1925, the Western Carolina Regional Sewer Authority (WCRSA) is a special purpose district of South Carolina, located in northwestern South Carolina. By The Gorman-Rupp Company
  4. The Proper Application Of Rotary Lobe And Rotary Screw Blower Technology

    Written by Kaeser’s system experts, this whitepaper compares rotary lobe and screw blowers, isochoric and isentropic compression, and how to properly apply these technologies for designing an energy efficient system.

  5. Mobile Control Center Maximizes Plant Operating Efficiencies

    The City of Geneva is located on the Seneca Lake in the wine-producing area of New York known as the Finger Lakes region. The drinking water facility, a Pall 2-train custom Aria™ membrane system, is operated by a team that prides itself in serving the clean water needs of its constituents. Integral to those efforts is the leveraging of tablet technology for maximizing plant operating efficiencies and minimizing downtime.

  6. Dry-Pit Submersible Pumps Replace Oversized Long-Shaft Pumps

    After anticipated growth of the New Jersey casino industry fell short, Atlantic City Sewerage Company’s Baltic Avenue Pump Station was left with grossly-oversized long-shaft sewage pumps that operated inefficiently and were prone to cavitation.

  7. Self-Cleaning Lift Stations And Hydroscreen Drastically Increase Efficiency In Brewery

    ClearBlu provided duplexing in-ground lift stations and a self-cleaning waterfall hydroscreen for the brewery who self-installed the equipment.  ClearBlu design and instructions made it possible for the brewery to install the lift stations and screen themselves, as well as to have the screen stand fabricated locally.  ClearBlu lift stations are fabricated from fiberglass which resists deterioration from acidic wastewater and are self-cleaning.  Round basins can be stirred so that they never have to be cleaned out.

  8. Article: Urban Stormwater Analysis: Entering The 2nd And 3rd Dimension
    True understanding of urban stormwater analysis has always been complicated by a lack of tools to analyze and understand the causes of flooding and possible solutions. By Jon H. Lindert, P.E., LEED AP, Strand Associates, Inc.
  9. White Paper: Aeration Blowers In The Wastewater Industry In North America
    The economical operation of a wastewater treatment plant depends largely on the design and the interplay of the aeration and process controls. Moreover, the human factor and the management objectives are at the heart of the plant’s reality and should also be taken into consideration. Selection and thoughtful integration of all the subsystems is of paramount importance. By Aerzen
  10. Centerfeed Fine Screen Dramatically Increases Throughput

    The Rotamat screen has been a popular choice for protecting debris sensitive technologies downstream such as MBRs. Through a constant program of responding industry needs, Huber Technology has developed the RPPS Star Pro series centerfeed fine screen. When combined, the Star and Pro options for the RPPS increases capacity and enables for even finer perforations, allowing for increased screenings removal in a tighter footprint.
