Water and Wastewater Solutions For Industry

  1. Ultrafiltration Stormwater Recovery System At Cincinnati Zoo Reaches Optimal Performance
    1/28/2015

    The Cincinnati Zoo uses an ultrafiltration system (UF) to treat stormwater. The reclaimed water is collected from 14 acres of the park, including parking lots, animal exhibit yards, rooftop drains, and walking path storm drains

  2. MABR Is The Big Cheese For This Dairy Farming WWTP
    1/29/2018

    Hayogev is a residential development in the rural area of Jezreel Valley, with 1000 homes, agricultural fields and dairy farms. Located in an open field next to small farms, the local treatment facility handles wastewater from HaYogev and Midrach Oz. The customer was looking for a localized wastewater treatment solution to replace the existing pond system, which faced difficulties in treating the wastewater due to high levels of nutrients. A new state-level regulation concerning reclaimed water required the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operator to reduce the nutrients in the effluent stream. The solution had to be odorless and quiet, have low power consumption, and use the existing pond and structure.

  3. Turbo Blower Replaces Surface Aerator In Industrial Waste Water Treatment Plant Biologically And Energetically More Efficient
    8/12/2014

    The biologically biodegradable waste water from the Leverkusen Chempark and the households of the lower drainage basin for the Wupperverband (Wupper association) is cleaned by Currenta in a community waste water treatment plant.

  4. Customized Grundfos Pumping System Reduces Mining Company's Energy Usage By $42,000 Per Year
    11/19/2014

    In 1862, while prospecting for what was thought to be a vast deposit of silver and gold, John Searles made a serendipitous discovery in this unforgiving and isolated area located southwest of Death Valley.

  5. Non-Contact Radar Level Meter Improves Reactor Vessel Measurement
    7/4/2013

    A North Carolina-based specialty chemical manufacturer, a major producer of insect repellent, was looking for a better way to measure the liquid level in its glass-lined agitated reactor. The company uses a number of complex technologies to manufacture sebacates, adipates, isophthalates, catalysts, alkyds, and other natural and renewable chemistries based on castor and citrates.

  6. Tidal Wave Or Drop In The Bucket? Differences In Water Use Across The United States
    11/11/2014

    A serious drought in the American West has called national attention to our country’s water resources. Not all regions of the U.S., however, have the same water needs. Understanding how our nation uses water, and how these needs vary across the country, will be an important piece of the solution to the water puzzle.

  7. The Big Empty: Rural America's Drinking Water Crisis
    6/20/2017

    O’Brien, Texas is just one of thousands of small communities in the United States that struggle to find the resources to ensure that the water coming out of the tap is safe to drink. The recent budget proposal by the Trump administration will only make matters worse. Watch this documentary short produced by Tom Rosenberg and Earth Institute fellow Madison Condon details one shrinking town’s drinking water crisis.

  8. On-Site Disinfection Generation Enables City To Provide High Quality Water For Industrial Food Processing Customers
    7/13/2018

    The city of Buhl, Idaho, obtains all of its drinking water from groundwater sources through multiple wells. Prior to 2009, the city did not treat the groundwater but only added chlorine in the form of bulk 12.5% sodium hypochlorite to provide a disinfectant residual. A combination of factors including: changes in EPA and state DEQ regulatory requirements, growth of the residential population and growth of the industrial food processing customers forced the City to build a new water treatment plant to provide filtration to address the naturally occurring arsenic present in the groundwater.

  9. Desalinated Water Supply Helps Plant Meet Strict Environmental Regulations
    4/23/2018

    STX Heavy Industries, a Korean EPC, recently implemented a flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) system at a coal-fired power plant in Chile in order to comply with the country's strict environmental regulations. The FGD process requires large amounts of high-quality water. STX.

  10. Improving Flow Measurement Accuracy With Flow Conditioners
    12/1/2017

    When looking for a way to reduce plant operating costs, one of the potentially simplest and often least expensive solutions is to measure liquid and gas flow more accurately. Plant upgrade projects that focus on the continuous improvement of flow measurement and control can trim overall production costs by eliminating waste and reducing maintenance costs.
