Wastewater Contaminant Removal Podcasts

  1. Modular Dissolved Air Flotation Systems Ideal For Treating Suspended Solids In High Flows
    11/2/2016

    Dissolved air flotation systems are ideal for removing suspended solids and emulsified oils from industrial wastewater streams because they work at high flows and can process high concentrations of contaminants. As Richard Newman, Director of Sales for SUEZ’s Gulf Coast Services, points out in this Water Online Radio interview, the treatment system is ideal for refineries and pulp and paper plants where suspended solids are not water soluble but emulsified.

  2. PAA And UV Pair Up To Improve Disinfection Performance

    The era of dumping waste into rivers is almost over. So says Jon McClean, Chief Technical Officer with ETS-UV, an Evoqua brand. McClean who has been working in UV water treatment for over 30 years recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the growth of water reuse and specifically UV’s role in water reclamation.

  4. Water Reuse Becomes Builders’ Selling Point
    11/30/2015

    One way to think about offsetting water rate increases is to reuse the water being consumed. For example, instead of paying $100 a quarter and using the water flowing out of faucets just once, what if you as a homeowner could treat that wastewater on site and reuse it to irrigate the lawn, wash the car, or flush the toilets?

  5. Fuzzy Filter Uses Compression In Advanced Primary Treatment
    11/25/2015

    Advanced primary treatment reduces or eliminates the solids load or organic carbon out of the waste stream. By doing so, a wastewater plant can decrease aeration power and avoid the need to expand its treatment basin size. The removed solids can also be moved to a digester to produce energy.

  6. Benefits Of Walnut Shell Backwashable Media Filters
    11/23/2015

    Filtra Systems Company developed the walnut shell filter about 40 years ago. One of the attractions of walnut shell is how well it can handle oil. When oil mixes together with sand, it essentially becomes asphalt. With walnut shell, the oil is coalesced and then, when it’s backwashed, the oil can be released from the shell.

  7. Making Aftermarket Service And Support Work For Water And Wastewater Treatment Plants
    11/11/2015

    As municipalities look to make their water and wastewater treatment equipment run longer with fewer operational staff on payroll to maintain the equipment, having a reliable aftermarket parts and service provider becomes essential.

  8. Primary Filtration Using Cloth Media Filtration Technology
    11/3/2015

    Since 1969, Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc. has been a leader in the design, application and manufacture of wastewater treatment equipment and systems for municipal and industrial markets, worldwide. They are most noted for the Aqua SBR, the sequencing batch reactor, biological process, as well as now our cloth media filters.
