Wastewater Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. PolyBlend M-Series Liquid Polymer Wetting And Activation System

    The 1.5 MGD West Carrollton Wastewater Treatment Plant in West Carrollton, OH came on-line in 1989 and today serves 12,000 area residents. The activated sludge facility produces an average of 200 wet tons/month of sludge that, following belt filter press dewatering, is spread on area farmland by a biosolids management company.

  2. Ultrasonic Metering For Small Water Meter Applications

    For many years, ultrasonic metering has been utilized for large scale liquid and gas measurement. However, it is a relatively new technology for small meter applications — particularly those designed for potable water.

  3. New Luminescent Technology Brings Faster, More Accurate CBOD Analysis

    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.

  4. Improving The Quality Of Tertiary Effluent For Indirect Potable Reuse With Geographic Constraints

    The Mazzei Sidestream Venturi Injection – Pipeline Flash Reactor System provides a feasible alternative for dissolution of ozone at the Clark County Water Reclamation District (CCWRD) in Las Vegas, because it allowed for flexibility in basin design to meet geographic site constraints.

  5. Case Study: AquaSBR® System Treats High Strength Vegetable Processing Waste

    In early 1993, Birds Eye Foods was faced with a difficult decision, to construct a new wastewater treatment facility or to retrofit their existing flow-through extended aeration treatment system

  6. Closed Circuit Desalination Technology Provides Steel Manufacturer ROI In Less Than 60 Days

    This leading rod and wire mill requires water for cooling steel and tools in its manufacturing process. Water used for cooling becomes contaminated with metals and lubricants and was therefore being disposed of as waste.

  7. How To Cannibalize Your Own Technology

    Business people love to talk about "disruption." They pride themselves on eating their competitors' lunch. Where their markets used to be about raving fans, now it's about inspiring craving fans, fueled by "hunger marketing" and the fear of missing out. There's a lot of dog-eat-dog philosophy...which is why it's important for companies to be willing to cannibalize their own technologies.

  8. Utah Water District Saves Time And Resources, Improves Accuracy By Upgrading Sensors And Analyzers

    Monitoring chlorine and fluoride levels in the drinking water of Utah’s Taylorsville-Bennion Improvement District used to be expensive, labor intensive, and often sensitive to interference from the vari­able frequency drives used to operate the chlorine injection pumps. That is, until the district upgraded to Rosemount free chlorine and fluoride sen­sors and analyzers from Emerson.

  9. Increasing Capacity: AE-DENITRO + Hydrotech Discfilter

    The City of Palm Coast, located on the east coast of Florida, expanded their existing Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to increase capacity to 6.83 MGD due to population growth, as well as add the production of reclaimed reuse water for use within the City.

  10. Wastewater Treatment For Brewery System Reduces BOD

    Real Ale Brewing Company (RABC) started as a small brewery working out of a commercial retail space. As the brewery outgrew their facility they purchased land on the outskirts of town and built a new brewery. Their production level was still low enough at this point for the city to allow direct access to sewer. As RABC continued to be successful and grow, a mandate from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality stated that the city must require the brewery to treat their wastewater in order to prevent overwhelming the city’s treatment system. RABC began the process of looking into available options for wastewater treatment. They had been introduced to ClearBlu Environmental at the Craft Brewers Conference in 2011 and after careful research the brewery selected ClearBlu to design and install a complete pretreatment and treatment system.
