Wastewater Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Ozone Demand Testing = Disinfection Project Success
    7/19/2013

    Water and wastewater facilities are increasingly looking to ozone disinfection. A strong and indiscriminant oxidant, ozone can effectively address treatment issues with THMs and DBPs in the disinfection process. Ozone disinfection is also a proactive step toward addressing future rules on endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) and other trace organics at both water and wastewater plants. While there are many aspects to ozone disinfection system design, the single most important factor in project success is a thorough understanding of your facility’s ozone demand profile. This article provides an outline of the key factors to make your ozone demand test -and ozone project- a success. By Thoram Charanda and Louis LeBrun

  2. Case Study: Leveraging Data To Optimize Operations And Manage Budgetary Pressure
    5/23/2011
    Budgetary pressure on water utilities continues to grow due to factors such as new infrastructure demands, increasing regulatory compliance requirements, and the scarcity or declining quality of source water. By Gabi Miles, Hach Company
  3. AquaSBR System Installed To Increase Capacity In A Small Footprint
    6/9/2016

    The West Central Conservancy District (WCCD), located in Hendricks County, IN, was formed to resolve sewer issues that the service area was experiencing with the local utilities company in the mid- ’80s.

  4. How To Clean, Inspect, And Calibrate pH Sensors
    4/2/2012

    Once a pH sensor is installed in the process and operating, how do you determine when it is time to take the sensor out of the process and do a cleaning, or a calibration? Does one perform both a cleaning and a calibration or just a cleaning, or just a calibration? By Fred Kohlmann - Analytical Product Business Manager

  5. Higher Flux Rate Operation With The Fuzzy Filter
    2/7/2018

    As greater restrictions and increased capacities are being placed on industrial & municipal plants, filtration systems are being pushed to greater operating levels. The Fuzzy Filter has enjoyed a distinct advantage over conventional media and disc type filters by virtue of its ability to operate at over 5 times conventional flux rates while maintaining effluent quality better than these technologies.

  6. Get A Big Bang For Your Buck With A Smart Selection
    11/20/2017

    The Huber Technology EscaMAX® gives control over what gets in the stream whereas their previous process gave them no way to prevent rag balls from flowing into pumps and mixers and causing slowdowns and clogs.

  7. Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters
    7/4/2017

    Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants. 

  8. Screen Provides Critical Protection At 25 MGD MBR In North Las Vegas
    8/3/2016

    North Las Vegas’s field facility is an MBR plant that was brand new when Huber’s rotary fine screens were implemented as part of its new water treatment and reclamation process. The facility is “smart,” using a level of technology at which few large plants operate. Huber’s advanced fine screening technology plays a key role in the impressive and innovative technology lineup.

  9. ORP Based Measurement Of Oxidizing Disinfectants In Aqueous Solutions
    9/22/2011

    Oxidizing antimicrobials, such as chlorine, are common disinfectants used to treat water. Test strips, DPD kits, and colorimeters are currently the most popular methods for determining the relative disinfecting power of oxidizing antimicrobial agents in these applications. By Myron L Company

  10. Anaerobic And Aerobic Treatment Solution For Paper Mill Wastewater
    12/7/2016

    Fluence provided the right solution for this paper mill to meet stringent permit discharge limits and produce renewable energy.
