Wastewater Case Studies and Whitepapers

  1. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Degassing Modules Improve Ice Production At The Ice Palace In Moscow
    8/10/2017

    An innovative approach to high quality ice production has been adopted by the new Ice Palace in Moscow.

  2. The Power Of Bundling: BIOSTYR® + ACTIFLO®
    1/7/2016

    In 1998, Onondaga County signed an Amended Consent Judgment with the State of New York to significantly increase the level of treatment at its Metropolitan Syracuse Wastewater Treatment Plant (Metro).

  3. Monster Compactor Cleans-Up At Seattle Treatment Plant
    1/16/2009

    In 2004 a team of researchers from King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division took on the task of cleaning up problems with the discharged screenings at their two treatment plants. The screenings were filled with excessive water, fecal and other organic matter. By JWC Environmental

  4. Horse Racetrack Bets On Flygt For Pump Station Design
    9/20/2016

    200-acre Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, NJ, is supported by a series of barns and other support facilities that house in excess of 500 horses during track operations. In the mid-1990s the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA) constructed facilities to collect horse wash water and first flush stormwater runoff for conveyance to the Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority (TRWRA), a wastewater treatment facility located in Monmouth Beach.

  5. Rhode Island Wastewater Plants Key To Water Quality Reversal
    4/27/2017

    Despite evidence that often points to the contrary, many bodies of water around the country stand as prime examples of how environmental quality can be improved with the proper will and effort.

  6. Guidelines For Successful Turbo Blower Installation
    3/9/2018

    Since high-speed blowers were initially introduced in the U.S. about 15 years ago, they have been helping wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators reduce energy costs — representing up to 60 percent of all plant operating costs — without compromising plant performance. That is not to say, however, that adopting the new technology did not come without a steep learning curve. Here are several guidelines to help WWTP operators maximize the payback on an investment in high-speed turbo blowers.

  7. Measuring Tube Construction Affects The Long-Term Stability Of Magnetic Flow Meters
    4/16/2009

    Electromagnetic flowmeters, also known as mag meters, are popular and proven devices for flow measurement of electrically conductive process fluids and for volumetric filling machine applications. Of prime importance to a mag meter’s accuracy and long term performance is the condition of the metering section of the flow sensor. By Dipl.-Ing. F. Hofmann and Dipl.-Ing. B. Schumacher, KROHNE Messtechnik GmbH Co KG Duisburg, Germany

  8. Supplemental Aeration System Reduces High BOD Levels And Solves Odor Issues
    9/1/2018

    A leading fruit juice company had expanded over the past ten years and increased wastewater flow from 7,000 to 11,000 gallons per day (gpd), without upgrading its wastewater treatment plant. Read the full case study to learn how after a Mazzei AirJection system was installed, dissolved oxygen levels increased in the aeration basins, which immediately eliminated the odors.

  9. Installing Hydro-Guard® Automatic Flushing Saves Rural Texas Town $8,000 A Year
    9/11/2015

    Managed by the private, non-profit South Jasper Water Supply, Buna, Texas’ water system contains 91 miles of un-looped distribution pipe with historical water losses of up to 30%. A small operations team is responsible for monitoring two water plants, reading 700 meters, repairing leaks, and flushing water to control the water quality. In an effort to spend less time manually flushing hydrants and focus more time on repairing leaks to reduce non-revenue water loss, South Jasper Water Supply purchased and installed two (2) Hydro-Guard® HG-1 Basic/S Flushing Systems.

  10. AnoxKaldnes MBBR Proves Effective At Asphalt Refinery
    1/7/2016

    A refinery needed to upgrade the wastewater treatment system to prepare for expected changes brought about by the use of a new crude feedstock with elevated concentrations of TDS and conductivity. Veolia Water Technologies supplied an AnoxKaldnes Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) treatment system to reduce the BOD and ammonia in the effluent.
