Wastewater Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Bypass Operation Allows Municipality To Fix Problems And Create Savings

    Hampden Township, located in idyllic southeastern Pennsylvania near Mechanicsburg, is home to more than 25,000 residents. The township is a desirable location for many because of good schools and strong community services. By The Gorman-Rupp Company

  2. 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors Remove Dissolved Gases From Water In Many Hydrocarbon Recovery And Process Applications

    The oil and gas industry has utilized various deaeration technologies for many years to remove dissolved gases, particularly oxygen, from injection water. Minimizing the environmental impact, improving operating efficiency, avoiding process issues and protecting system components are just a few of the reasons degassing is necessary in many hydrocarbon recovery and water processes.

  3. Clearing Channels And Tanks Of Rag And Fiber Produces Benefits Beyond The Tanks

    Reduction of ragging is merely one of the benefits the EscaMAX® Perforated Plate Screen bestows upon its implementer. But this is such a huge factor, that mitigating it brings night-and-day results in other areas such as reducing debris in the grit channel, increasing space for energy-producing biosolids in tanks, and releasing cleaner end products. 

  4. Retrofit Significantly Reduces Backwash Cycle Interval, Duration And Water Use For Georgia Utility

    The North Columbus Resource Facility recently completed a $12-million replacement of its settled water filtration, removing the existing Wheeler filters, their three-part media and 10-inch poured concrete underdrains, which were no longer efficient.

  5. Los Alamos WWTP Gains Turndown Capability And Saves Energy With Hybrid Blowers

    Los Alamos, NM, the former site of topsecret laboratories where government scientists developed the atomic bomb during World War II, is once again a town at the forefront of new technology.

  6. Revolutionary New Dif-Jet™ Deep Aeration System For Wastewater

    New aeration Systems offer a less expensive more energy efficient alternative to conventional aeration technology for wastewater, aquaculture and hydroponics.

  7. Avoiding The Deadly Legacy Of Hydrogen Sulfide

    Workplace fatalities are devastating to families, friends, and employers alike, and they are especially tragic when resulting from a preventable incident. Whether it be a lapse in safety judgement, a lack of proper monitoring equipment and protocol, or the pervasiveness of human error, employers must always be attentive to factors that could lead to severe worker injuries or death.

  8. Fairbanks Nijhuis Protecting New Orleans

    Originally constructed from the 1920s to 1949, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) is one of America’s most remarkable transportation arteries. The New Orleans District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates and maintains the GIWW in Louisiana, and maintains its six locks for both navigation and agricultural purposes.

  9. How To Improve Biogas Generation In The Food And Beverage Industry

    Anaerobic wastewater treatment processes have been increasing in popularity across the food and beverage industry. Anaerobic processes effectively treat both the normal industrial wastes (higher concentration than municipal wastes) and the very high-strength/low-volume wastes generated by the industry. A welcome side benefit is the generation of biogas for energy production. A food and beverage company can save money, improve sustainability, and lower its carbon footprint. Other drivers include potential legislation in some states to reduce organic waste in landfills and the significant reduction in land application process viability.

  10. Retrofit Membrane System Treats High Turbidity Water

    The City of Wilmington, Delaware is situated where the Christina River and the Brandywine Creek flow into the Delaware River.
