Wastewater Disinfection WHITE PAPERS

  1. Standardizing On-Site Hypochlorite Generation Disinfection Technology In Water And Wastewater Treatment Plants Increases Safety And Eases Operations
    10/3/2018

    In late 2005, the City of Newberg, Oregon, decided to upgrade their water treatment plant disinfection process from gas chlorine to on-site hypochlorite generation (OSHG) in an effort to simplify operations and increase operator safety. The plant produced an average of 2.5 million gallons per day (MGD), with a peak capacity of 5 MGD.

  2. Polymer Activation Equipment Upgrade Yields Consistent Polymer Savings Of Over 13%
    9/24/2018

    In an effort to lower operational costs and extend the life of the dewatering centrifuge, operators in Springboro, OH, began to look at the polymer activation equipment in use at the plant. The Polyblend® M-Series emulsion polymer activation systems had been in steady operation for over 10 years. The equipment still performed reliably, but operators were interested in ways to achieve greater efficiency. They were aware of the new Polyblend® Magnum mix chamber, with its enhanced two-zone mixing energy.

  3. Pure Oxygen Injection Into A Pipeline
    9/15/2018

    The Hagerstown Wastewater Treatment Plant in Maryland incorporated several plant modifications, one of which was the conversion of their disinfection process from the use of ozone to UV.

  4. Wastewater Plant In Como, Italy, Upgrades To De Nora Ozone For Significant Savings
    9/13/2018

    The Lariana Depur wastewater treatment plant in Fino Mornasco, Italy, treats wastewater from multiple textile manufacturers in the Como region, known as the heart of the textile industry. Since 1994, ozone has been used effectively as a polisher to remove the dark blue-purple color — the result of the dyes used in the textile dyeing and printing process — from the water.

  5. Mitigating Environmental Impact Of Gold Mine’s Wastewater Through Ozone Oxidation And Aquifer Re-injection
    9/5/2018

    Installing and operating an ozone oxidation system for wastewater remediation at a gold mine located in a remote region of Alaska is full of challenges.

  6. City Of Springfield, MO, Upgrades Disinfection System From Gas Chlorine To On‐Site Sodium Hypochlorite Generation
    7/24/2018

    In April 2013, City Utilities started up three Microclor Model MC‐1500 skid systems, each rated at 1,500 pounds per day of free available chlorine.

  7. Water Works Commission Lowers Risk Profile By Converting To A Safer Disinfectant
    7/24/2018

    Chatsworth Water Works Commission provides both water and wastewater services to the 5,000 residents of the cities of Chatsworth and Eton, GA.

  8. Cheyenne Board Of Public Utilities In Cheyenne, Wyoming Successfully Moves From Calcium Hypochlorite Tablets To Microclor® On-Site Hypochlorite Generation
    7/24/2018

    The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) operates the water and wastewater systems for the capital of Wyoming which has a population of more than 63,000. Located in the fast growing Front Range Urban Corridor, BOPU is challenged by growth, periodic water scarcity and aging infrastructure.

  9. Optimizing Tank Flushing Using A Rapid Decision-Making Framework
    7/5/2018

    In 2017, a municipal water treatment plant was commissioning a new elevated tank. The tank had been cleaned, flushed and disinfected, but initial test results indicated unacceptable water quality. After a second cleaning, the tank was refilled and water samples were sent to the lab for follow-up testing.

  10. UV Kind Of Town, Chicago Is (Case Study)
    6/22/2018

    The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) — of which the Terrence J. O’Brien Water Reclamation Plant (WRP) is part of — has made a number of upgrades to its treatment process in recent years.
