Wastewater Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. New Luminescent Technology Brings Faster, More Accurate CBOD Analysis
    2/4/2013

    Measuring DO in the CBOD procedure was once troublesome and inefficient for lab personnel and operators alike at the Southside Wastewater Treatment Plant in Tyler, Texas. But all that changed when they adopted new luminescent technology that has eliminated problems with instrument drift, slow measurements, and frequent maintenance.

  2. Monitoring Raw Water Turbidity – What’s Important!
    3/27/2018

    Monitoring raw water turbidity is important to inform the operator of significant changes in water quality, especially turbidity, allowing the operator to make process chemistry changes to respond to the increasing raw water turbidity. Variations in raw water present turbidity measurement challenges different from those found elsewhere in a typical treatment plant.

  3. West Virginia City Says It All Adds Up With The FPI Mag Flow Meter
    10/29/2015

    The city staff of Buckhannon, West Virginia, recently ran into a situation that didn’t add up. A flow meter at one of the city’s booster stations was indicating a flow rate higher than the capacity of the station’s pumps. The staff contacted the applications team at McCrometer about its flow meter accuracy problem.

  4. Remote Monitoring Provides Water Resilience During Crisis
    11/15/2019

    Managing three drinking water treatment facilities, multiple pump stations, more than 350 miles of pipelines, and a wastewater treatment facility is challenging even in normal conditions for a small city where agriculture is an economic driver and water demand can exceed 22 MGD.

  5. Design-Build Using Actiflo Technology
    3/6/2015

    A state-of-the-art 695-MW power generation facility was recently installed in the Northeastern U.S. to serve the country’s highest demand market. Its innovative power generation technologies, emissions control systems and process efficiencies make it one of the cleanest, most efficient and technologically advanced supercritical pulverized coal (SPC) power plants in the U.S.

  6. Retrofit Significantly Reduces Backwash Cycle Interval, Duration And Water Use For Georgia Utility
    5/1/2017

    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.

  7. Technical White Paper: Energy Efficiency Of Twin Screw Blowers Compared To Rotary Lobe Blowers
    7/1/2010

    In order to achieve a significant improvement in energy efficiency in the technology of air blowers for small volume flows, a technology step is needed. The step to achieve significant progress in energy efficiency in the low-pressure market is taken by introducing blowers using internal compression instead of external compression.

  8. Case Study: RSG 30 In Wastewater Treatment Monitoring
    8/10/2011

    The Ecograph T RSG 30 data logger is used to monitor Turbidity, DO and pH and provide critical information to meet EPA standards. By Endress+Hauser, Inc.

  9. Introduction To VigorOx WWT II For Wastewater Disinfection
    1/25/2016

    Welcome to the first edition of Disinfection Digest, a forum to share experiences using PeroxyChem’s VigorOx WWT II wastewater disinfection technology.

  10. Hydraulic Modeling For Esri© ArcGIS Users
    2/15/2018

    Water and wastewater networks are inherently geospatial, comprising interconnected assets that are often underground, buried beneath urban and rural communities.
