Wastewater Case Studies and Whitepapers

  1. Removal of Metaldehyde & Environmental Contaminant Treatment - Lincoln, United Kingdom (Case Study)

    Anglian Water (Anglian) is one of the largest suppliers of drinking water and wastewater services in the United Kingdom. As an alternative to ozone, Anglian decided to install a TrojanUVTorrent™ECT UV-oxidation system, as part of a multi-barrier approach, to ensure it produced a potable water supply that matched the high standards required by its regulators and customers.

  2. Ozone For Pulp Bleaching

    SNIACE S.A. is a pulp mill located in Spain with an annual production capacity of 66,000 tons of dissolving pulp from Eucalyptus. Forty percent of the pulp is used in their own viscose plant, and the remaining 60 percent is sold to the market.

  3. AdvanTex® Treatment System Chosen For Overall Low Life-Cycle Costs

    On the island nation of Cyprus, the Water Development Department needed a wastewater treatment system for an immigration processing center that was in the planning stages. 

  4. Advanced Diagnostics of Thermal Mass Flow Meters

    Many thermal mass flow meters are of the insertion type. As a starting point, proper insertion depth and straight run per the manufacturer’s recommendations should be adhered to.

  5. Fort Worth Turns A Liability Into An Asset

    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. Continuous Fill SBR Tanks Help WWTP Exceed Effluent Requirements, Generate Additional Revenue

    In order to meet the anticipated effluent criteria required by the Pennsylvania DEP, the Newville Borough Water & Sewer Authority determined that its existing wastewater treatment facility needed renovations. By installing two continuous fill SBR tanks, the facility lowered total nitrogen below permit limits, reduced energy costs, and created a new revenue stream (selling unused nutrient allocations). Read the case study for full details.

  7. Foods - Biochemical Oxygen Demand And Chemical Oxygen Demand

    A food manufacturer in Washington state had a source of well water contaminated with vegetable and fish oils. A five gallon sample was was sent to Kaselco for testing via our electrocoagulation process.

  8. Automation Solutions For Fixed-Bed Filters

    Handwheel or automated process valve? The worldwide trend is clearly moving towards automation, because it reduces energy and water consumption, especially rinsing water, and increases plant availability. Pneumatic automation of a fixed-bed filter is a good example of this.

  9. A New, Cost-Efficient Way To De-Sludge Your Lagoon

    Most small towns, all over the world, utilize lagoons for treating their wastewater. Many rural industries also utilize lagoons for storm-water and wastewater treatment. While industrial plants may be able to pay for activated sludge treatment of one design or another, small municipalities simply do not have a choice in treating their small populations’ wastes.

  10. White Paper: Comparison Of Stormwater Quality Treatment Guidelines And Critical Structural Best Management Performance Factors And Parameters To Consider
    Provisions to protect source water have become an important consideration in urban development in North America. In the United States, Phase I and Phase II of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) stormwater program require owner/operators to address stormwater runoff pollution issues. The program relies on National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits to implement programs and practices to control polluted stormwater runoff...
