Wastewater Disinfection APPLICATION NOTES

  1. Disinfection And Emerging Contaminant Removal With HyDOZ®
    3/20/2014

    In the summer of 2012, BlueInGreen partnered with a facility in Arkansas to study disinfection of wastewater and removal of emerging contaminants of concern (ECC) by utilizing dissolved ozone. The plant has a firm capacity of 12 MGD and includes primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification, and sand filtration prior to the existing UV system.

  2. UV Technology Offers Solution For Emerging Water Crisis
    2/19/2014

    Many are turning to UV as an effective barrier to enable the reuse of wastewater, for indirect reuse, and aquifer recharge.

  3. Importance Of Measuring UV Transmittance (UVT) For UV Disinfection
    2/1/2013

    UV disinfection systems disinfect water using UV light at the 254 nm wavelength. UV light at this wavelength actually destroys the DNA of microbiological material in the water which prevents dangerous viruses such as cryptosporidium and e-coli from reproducing and causing harm.

  4. Process Monitoring And Control For Increased Productivity And Efficiency
    4/9/2012

    The Littleton/Englewood wastewater treatment plant, Colorado, put in place processes to effectively monitor the levels of ammonia in their wastewater treatment.

  5. Chlorine Measurement In Wastewater And Regulated Discharge Requirements
    8/8/2014

    Homes, industry, schools, and businesses all generate sanitary waste, or sewage. Sewage treatment is a multistage process that cleans up wastewater before discharge or reuse. In the final step of the treatment, disinfectants are added to kill disease-causing organisms. Common disinfectants are chlorine gas and sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine dosage levels are designed to leave almost no residual in the wastewater after treatment

  6. Microbial Control In Cheese Making
    12/5/2014

    Microbial contamination of food and beverage products is a potentially catastrophic occurrence resulting in foodborne illness or food spoilage. The same nutritive properties that render cheese and dairy products such a valuable food also provide an ideal growth medium for microbes if contamination occurs.

  7. Disinfection By-Products (DBP) Precursor Monitoring
    2/1/2013

    Chlorine has long been used as a primary disinfection method for many water and wastewater treatment applications. However, there is growing concern about the harmful DBP’s produced by the use of chlorine.

  8. Comparison of UV vs. Sodium Hypochlorite (Fact Sheet)
    11/23/2011

    Hypochlorite has some significant environmental concerns associated with DBPs and residual toxicity.
