Wastewater Treatment Application Notes

  1. How One Wastewater Treatment Plant Saved Time And Money Measuring Turbidity And TSS
    The wastewater treatment plant of a major corporation is designed for a population capacity of 6 million people and is considered a very large wastewater treatment plant.
  2. Precise Control Of Dissolved O2 And N2 In Semiconductor Applications Using 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors

    Semiconductor manufacturers increasingly want precise control of O2 and N2 concentrations in ultrapure water. Specifically, the polishing loop of a semiconductor plant needs to control dissolved O2 to low levels of 1 ppb or 5 ppb while simultaneously controlling the dissolved N2 between 8–12 ppm.

  3. Thermal Flow Meters For Mixed Gas Applications

    Fox Thermal Flow Meters use a constant temperature differential (constant Δ T) technology to measure mass flow rate of air and gases.

  4. Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Breakdown of organic wastes entering a wastewater treatment plant is accomplished by using a biomass or blend of beneficial microscopic organisms, bacteria, and solids. This converts the non-settleable solids (dissolved and colloidal matter) into settleable solids, carbon dioxide, water, and energy.

  5. Comparison Of Alkagen® Solution To Other Alkaline Technologies For Odor And Corrosion Control

    Evoqua’s team of engineers and scientists is widely recognized as the most experienced and authoritative body of odor and corrosion control specialists assembled within any vendor organization worldwide.

  6. Improving Compliance Through Real-Time Phosphorus Control

    Levels of phosphorus, a chemical element that promotes organic growth, must be controlled in wastewater coming from beverage, food and dairy processing plants. Failure to control phosphorus accurately has a negative impact on water quality and can lead to large fines.

  7. Filter Installations Remove Solids From FGD Scrubber Effluent

    Power plants and refineries around the world must manage and treat complex effluent waste streams from the Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) process. Flue gas is generated by the combustion process of fossil and fossil-derived fuels, such as coal, oils, and natural gas in power plants. Petrochemical refineries may generate flue gas from a number of different processes, including Catalytic Cracking, Steam Methane Reforming, and Heaters or Furnaces.

  8. Capturing Ammonia In Flue Gas Condensate Treatment For Biomass Power Stations With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors

    Heat and power generation in biofuel engine cogeneration plants has become increasingly important as process industries look for more economical and environmentally friendly ways to produce energy.

  9. Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency

    One of the most common processes in wastewater treatment is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins. This process requires the pumping of compressed air into the aeration basins where a diffuser system ensures the air is distributed evenly for optimum treatment. The energy needed to provide compressed air is a significant cost in the operation of a wastewater treatment plant.
