Wastewater Treatment Application Notes

  1. Determination Of EN15662:2008 - Determination Of Pesticide Residue In Food Of Plant Origin, By An Automated QuEChERS Solution
    9/24/2014

    Pesticide residue laboratories are required to undertake analyses of an ever increasing number of samples. The analyses typically involve use of multi-residue methods (both GC-MS and LC-MS) to test for over 500 pesticide residues.

  2. Mapping And Identifying The Source Of Water Quality Issues
    6/28/2017

    A Southern U.S. municipality experiencing taste and odor issues in a certain neighborhood was also having difficulty maintaining chlorine residual levels in the area. Biological growth was suspected, however, water leaving the treatment plant met and exceeded all water quality requirements. After several investigations, the source of contamination in the distribution system could still not be identified.

  3. Control Of THMs With Chlorine Dioxide
    2/16/2016

    Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is effective as both a disinfectant and an oxidant in water and wastewater treatment.

  4. VFD Energy Savings For Pumping Applications
    4/6/2017

    In the early days of variable frequency drive (VFD) technology, the typical application was in process control for manufacturing synthetic fiber, steel bars, and aluminum foil.

  5. Disinfection And Emerging Contaminant Removal With HyDOZ®
    3/20/2014

    In the summer of 2012, BlueInGreen partnered with a facility in Arkansas to study disinfection of wastewater and removal of emerging contaminants of concern (ECC) by utilizing dissolved ozone. The plant has a firm capacity of 12 MGD and includes primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification, and sand filtration prior to the existing UV system.

  6. Degassing Sea Water Has Never Been This Compact, Efficient, And Adaptable
    6/27/2017

    3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors offer a modular skid option for off-shore oil platforms that is significantly smaller and lighter than traditional vacuum towers.

  7. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Can Help Meet Pure Steam Requirements In Pharmaceutical Industry
    8/10/2017

    Pure steam is used in sterilization chambers as a common method to sterilize pharmaceutical products, such as equipment parts, instruments, containers and materials for sterile environments.

  8. How One Wastewater Treatment Plant Saved Time And Money Measuring Turbidity And TSS
    1/31/2012
    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.
  9. Chlorine Measurement In Wastewater And Regulated Discharge Requirements
    8/8/2014

    Homes, industry, schools, and businesses all generate sanitary waste, or sewage. Sewage treatment is a multistage process that cleans up wastewater before discharge or reuse. In the final step of the treatment, disinfectants are added to kill disease-causing organisms. Common disinfectants are chlorine gas and sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine dosage levels are designed to leave almost no residual in the wastewater after treatment

  10. Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant
    3/3/2015

    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.
