WASTEWATER FEATURES, INSIGHTS AND ANALYSIS

  1. Aqua Rhino In-Channel Escalating Screen
    5/11/2018

    This video provides a simple overview of the screen’s creation, function, features and benefits. From the beginning, Parkson engineers took it a step further by working with a leading design firm to rethink the industry standard step style screen from the ground up. They reviewed current offerings on the market and improved upon the common weak points. The result is the most durable escalating screen out there – the Aqua Rhino.

  2. Innovative, Collaborative, Inevitable: Furthering The Evolution Of Smart Water In North America

  3. Savings Helps MABRs Gain Traction In Municipalities
    5/9/2018

    An MABR is essentially a biological wastewater treatment process that utilizes seemingly passive aeration through oxygen-permeable membranes. Oxygen transfer through the MABR membranes is diffusion based: driven by concentration differences such that oxygen passes from air at atmospheric pressure into water at a higher hydrostatic pressure. This oxygen transfer mechanism, wherein air is supplied to the process at very low pressure, is the reason MABRs have significantly lower energy consumption compared to other wastewater treatment processes, such as conventional activated sludge (CAS), that utilize diffusers. This energy savings is one of the key reasons MABRs are gaining traction in the municipal wastewater industry.

  4. Mapping Tool Scores Sites For Watershed Protection
    5/4/2018

    Ralph Spagnolo and Ellen Bryson know their way around the state capitals in EPA’s Mid-Atlantic Region.  The regional Water Protection Division employees have been on the road helping states launch an innovative online mapping tool that prioritizes sites for watershed preservation or restoration.

  6. Brackish Water Desalination Plant Draws Rave Reviews
    5/4/2018

    Construction took just five months for this ecologically-friendly municipal desalination plant, designed to treat brackish water with high nitrate levels. Watch as the plant manager speaks about the advantages this system has provided.

  7. Luxury Resort Chooses AdvanTex® For Its Low Life-Cycle Costs
    5/1/2018

    A new luxury resort was planned for a scenic location just outside the small Greek village of Paliouri. With no municipal sewer available, the investors needed a decentralized wastewater treatment system. The system would have to consistently meet discharge limits, allow for future expansion, and offer low life-cycle costs. Also, it would need to operate with minimal odor or sound, so as to go unnoticed by guests.

  8. FlexRake® Celebrates 20 Years Of Continuous Operation In Michigan
    4/26/2018

    In 1997, back before text messaging and cell phones, Duperon Corporation installed the FlexRake® FP Full Penetration Coarse Bar Screen into its first wastewater treatment plant at the City of Adrian, Michigan. The same equipment is in operation today, with all of its original components, with the exception of a motor/drive head bearing replacement. 

  9. How To Improve Test Accuracy With The Latest Sampling Technology
    4/25/2018

    Sampling and laboratory testing are major responsibilities for water professionals. Test results are used for process control, and ultimately to determine that water is safe for drinking, reuse, or discharge to the environment. Regulatory agencies rely on reported results for proof of permit compliance. So, obtaining representative, properly collected and preserved samples is the first critical step to ensure accurate test results.

  10. Membrane Technologies In Containerized Units Allow For Installation In A Small Footprint
    4/23/2018

    After an international tender process, the Israel Electric Company (IEC) chose Fluence to design, manufacture, and supply containerized ultrapure water production systems for use as makeup water for heat-recovery steam generators (HRSG) and for NOx emission reduction at recently upgraded power plants across Israel. More than 15 units of 20 m3/h production modules, each fitted in two 40-foot shipping containers, were provided to seven power plants. Their compact design allowed for ease of installation, operation, and maintenance while meeting the customer’s demanding engineering standards.
