WASTEWATER FEATURES, INSIGHTS AND ANALYSIS

  1. How Can We Start The Journey To Smart Water Networks?
    2/20/2019

    In the developed world, potable water is delivered to people via a complex infrastructure consisting of water catchment, water treatment, water storage (reservoirs, towers), and water distribution (pipes). The first two elements are well understood; what is less understood is what happens to water as it journeys to the tap.

  2. Air Diffusion Systems Helps Francesville With New Aeration System

    In 2012, the Town of Francesville in Indiana contacted Air Diffusion Systems to provide a solution for several suspended solids violations and energy efficient treatment. Air Diffusion Systems was able to provide an unique solution to correct biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and total suspended solids (TSS) problems using Kaeser Compressors’ CB Com-paK blowers.

    Complete Screening & Solids Handling System with FlexRake® Technology for Low Flow Sites

  4. Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor Technology Validated For Title 22 Compliance
    2/13/2019

    Title 22 of California’s Water Recycling Criteria is among the strictest water treatment standards for water recycling and reuse in the United States. Fluence’s MABR demonstration plant was installed at the Codiga Resource Recovery Center (CR2C) in Stanford, California, in January 2018 for the purpose of third-party evaluation. The testing parameters included criteria to evaluate reliable enhanced nutrient removal in the form of Total Nitrogen, which is increasingly important across the United States and difficult and costly to achieve through conventional wastewater treatment.

  5. Global Experts Offer 2019 Smart Water Insights
    2/13/2019

    What are some of the biggest global challenges, trends, and opportunities for the smart water sector in 2019? To answer these questions, the Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN) interviewed four industry experts from Australia, North America, the UK, and India.

  6. Design And Care Of Reverse Osmosis Systems, Part 3: Operation And Monitoring
    2/5/2019

    Reverse osmosis (RO) systems offer power plant owners and operators a reliable and well-proven water treatment solution. However, designing and caring for an RO system requires a thorough understanding of a plant’s water supply and the technology’s capabilities. The final article of this three-part series will address RO system operation and maintenance best practices.

  7. Shaftless Screw Conveyor
    2/4/2019

    Ideal for debris in wastewater and industrial applications. Compact and simple design effectively moves materials with low energy consumption and low maintenance. Saves operator time and eliminates manual operations by fully automating screenings handling to the dumpster. Designed to handle screenings up to 50 cubic feet per hour.

  8. On Site But Out Of Mind… Getting Extra Mileage Out Of Your Disinfection System
    1/31/2019

    Using on-site sodium hypochlorite generation technology to make oxidant for water and wastewater treatment is cost-effective, safe, and environmentally responsible. But, as with any piece of equipment, choosing the right one and caring for it properly impacts both life cycle costs and effectiveness. We talked with David McWalters, Field Service Manager-Americas, De Nora, to learn more.

  9. Textile Wastewater Treatment — An Application To Sustainably Reuse Water In The Textile Industry
    1/30/2019

    The textile industry is a water consumption intensive industry. Water is utilized for cleaning the raw material, and for the different steps in the textile dyeing process. Due to the effects of water scarcity and stricter environmental regulations, the cost of fresh water utilization has increased worldwide.

  10. Comparing Benefits Of V-Cone® And Coriolis Meters
    1/28/2019

    Proper operation of water treatment processes depends on accurate flow measurements. Also, flow data is often required by regulatory agencies.
