Wastewater Case Studies and Whitepapers

  1. Predicting WWTP Sludge Production And Power Savings From Facultative Operation Of Aerobic Digesters

    The objective of this white paper is the prediction of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) sludge production and subsequent power savings realized from operating the aerobic digesters via facultative digestion using technology from ENNIX(6)  INC. Development of the predictive spreadsheet permits one to demonstrate the power savings to potential users of the facultative digestion(6) technology.

  2. 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.

  3. State-Of-The-Art Septage Station Handles Large Volumes Effectively

    When SAWS in San Antonio sought to upgrade their septage collection system they faced challenges beyond what might be normally seen in a typical WWTP. By partnering with Huber Technology, SAWS was able to navigate through challenges and put together a world class system.

  4. Improving Total Nitrogen Removal

    To protect the sensitive waters of the Neuse River Basin, the State of North Carolina formally adopted a nutrient management strategy in 1997 which established Total Maximum Daily Loads for all point source contributors of Total Nitrogen (TN) to the Neuse River. By upgrading its oxidation ditches, this Eastern NC plant saw a reduction of 76% TN compared to its average discharge from the past 6 years.

  5. Tooele, UT, Harnesses The Sun To Reduce Sludge Volume And Saves Big

    City of Tooele needed to reduce sludge volume that would produce reusable material, be simple to maintain, and provide cost effective operation. The Huber Technology SRT Solar Dryer was determined to be a technology fit to achieve Tooele’s goals. The linear feed design of the SRT Solar Dryer provided the ability to feed dewatered sludge to the dryer as it was produced. Read the full case study to learn more about their installation.

  6. Digital Engineering Models Enable Comprehensive Lifecycle Information Management For Water And Wastewater Treatment Plants

    Water and wastewater treatment plant design is a large scale, complex engineering effort that requires a multi-discipline design team, often spread across many offices, and involving collaboration among different consulting firms, contractors, and owners.

  7. How To Manage The 4 Water-Based Fluids Associated With Hydraulic Fracturing

    The primary fluid used in hydraulic fracturing is water and the completion process can require from 2.75 - 8.25 million gallons per well. This white paper discusses the different water management and instrumentation requirements for controlling and processing drilling mud, hydraulic fracturing fluid, flowback water and produced water.

  8. First MS Series Bar Screen Installed In The United States - Still Running Strong!

    The fourth largest city in the United States is home to Headworks® headquarters and also boasts the first MS Series Bar Screen installed in the United States.

  9. Feature Installation: Pleasant Valley School District, PA (Wastewater Treatment Lagoons)
    Pleasant Valley School District is comprised of seven schools encompassing a 120 square mile area (311 km2) in Monroe County Pennsylvania.
  10. United Utilities Adopts Collaborative BIM Strategy To Deliver Over 200 Water Projects

    Privatization of the United Kingdom’s (UK) water industry 25 years ago required providers to implement asset management programs (AMP) whereby water boards tendered contracts to construction firms to update the industry’s antiquated assets and help keep infrastructure properly maintained.
