1. Energy-Efficient System Design For Wastewater Treatment Plants

    Energy is the single highest operating cost in a wastewater treatment plant. More specifically, the energy to operate blowers for aeration is the single highest energy consumer. 

  2. The Cost Of High Solids In Your Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Conventional activated sludge wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) operate with solids (mixed liquor suspended solids ­– MLSS) concentrations ranging from approximately 1500 to 5000 mg/L. In membrane bioreactors (MBRs), typical MLSS concentrations are even higher (10,000 to 12,000 mg/L). 

  3. Potable Water Fuzzy Filter Improves Plant’s Overall Efficiency

    Municipal Potable Water applications for the Fuzzy Filter have grown the past few years thanks to a strong relationship established with a consulting engineering firm active in the industry. Read the full article to learn more about current installations of the fuzzy filter and how it can improve a plant’s overall efficiency.

  4. Higher Flux Rate Operation With The Fuzzy Filter

    As greater restrictions and increased capacities are being placed on industrial & municipal plants, filtration systems are being pushed to greater operating levels. The Fuzzy Filter has enjoyed a distinct advantage over conventional media and disc type filters by virtue of its ability to operate at over 5 times conventional flux rates while maintaining effluent quality better than these technologies.

  5. The Often Overlooked Benefits And Versatility Of GRO And GR Systems For Existing Plants

    Schreiber has designed and installed several dual GR plants in which one unit serves as the aeration/clarification unit and other unit serves as the digester/thickener/clarification unit. At the Mirasol, MO plant, the GR digester was sized to allow digestion/clarification in the initial phase, thus satisfying the clarifier duality required in many states, and will be converted to a digester/thickener in a future plant expansion.

  6. The Importance Of Accurate Metering In Irrigation

    In the agriculture sector today, where water usage reporting is increasingly becoming a requirement for irrigation system operators that divert water in regulated areas from ground and surface sources, accurate metering is critical.

  7. How To Save Energy And Produce Top-Quality Effluent With MABR Technology

    Wastewater professionals are always under pressure to save costs while improving treatment. So, new technology that helps to accomplish these goals is always welcome. Wastewater equipment and treatment methodologies are becoming more effective and efficient, providing valuable solutions for utilities and industries.

  8. The CoMag® System For Enhanced Primary And Tertiary Treatment

    The innovative CoMag System from Evoqua infuses magnetite into chemical floc to make it heavier, significantly improving clarifier performance. This video explains how the CoMag® System works and how it can be used to increase capacity, enhance clarifier performance and achieve total phosphorous of 0.05 mg/L.

  9. Fuzzy Filter: Video

    Innovative and cost effective, Fuzzy Filter uses compressible media for variable porosity, with high solids storage and no filtered water needed for washing.

  10. Grit & Grease: Video

    Schreiber’s grit and grease removal system removes both grit and grease in a common structure. Two parallel rectangular concrete channels combine to separate and collect grit and grease: one to settle grit particles for removal, and the other to collect grease using Schreiber’s patented air-skimming technology. The system meets the specific flow requirements of each facility and handles large fluctuations in flow. The typical detention time at the design peak flow is five minutes.
