Headworks International has installations all over the United States and in over 40 other countries. We are always interested to learn about the community our equipment serves. One interesting place is Topeka, Kansas.
When SAWS in San Antonio sought to upgrade their septage collection system they faced challenges beyond what might be normally seen in a typical WWTP. By partnering with Huber Technology, SAWS was able to navigate through challenges and put together a world class system.
In the late 1620s, the Dutch immigrants to what was later to become the United States began a settlement on the shores of the Hudson River with a fort being built in 1669. That development has grown into what is now East Greenbush, NY, a small town in upstate New York in the suburbs of Albany, the state Capitol.
The high cost of maintenance and unsatisfactory performance of the aging equipment in the Bonnybrook headworks made it clear that significant changes were in order. The older poorly performing headworks allowed screenings to pass to the downstream process units causing operational and maintenance problems. By installing the Huber RakeMax® and matching WAP washpress, Calgary’s process performance immediately improved.
Havre WWTP was in search of a replacement solution that would improve their screening process. The old system often became plugged with rags. The City learned quickly to depend on Huber’s RakeMax technology to help it overcome its challenges. The highly effective technology enables the City’s operations to remove such a high percentage of inorganics that the downstream processing are more effective and components are less stressed.
It had become obvious to The City of Guelph that it was time to replace several of the components in its treatment process. Project leaders wanted to upgrade its treatment processes by implementing leading edge technology. By thoroughly researching what was available they choose the technology and vendor that was the best match for their long-term wastewater treatment goals of the City.
A WWTP chooses a new screw press that takes up less than half the space that the old belt press had occupied. This was striking for the operations team but not as striking as the fraction of time they needed to spend managing the screw press.
The Poultry Capital of the World is a city in northwest Arkansas in the heart of the Ozark Mountain range. Springdale, Arkansas, the fourth largest city in the state, is the headquarters for Tyson Food Corporation, the world's largest meat-producing company. The city was founded in the mid-1800s and has been a hub for agriculture and industry in the region since then. In addition, the region is home to outdoors activities like fishing, hunting, camping, boating, etc., and the natural, outdoors life is enjoyed by many residents as well as visitors to the area.
When Contentnea MSD WWTP installed their Huber RoS3Q screwpresses they immediately were able to benefit from the simple automated capability of the technology. The system required little operator attention enabling staff to focus their attention elsewhere. The improvement in dryness of the end product radically reduced their haul off costs.
In a recent retrofit replacing a belt filter press with a Huber RoS3Q screwpress, the plant operations staff at Robinson WWTP leveraged the technology’s greatly improved dewatering performance to solve their sludge storage and distribution strategies. As a result they are able to radically improve both operations and reduce costs.
The textile industry in Bahrain dates to ancient times. In the time of Alexander the Great, the country was as known as a producer of clothes seen throughout Arabia and the Indian subcontinent. Modern day Bahrain maintains its strong tradition in textile manufacture.
Pennsylvania treatment plant upgrades its headworks to innovative grit removal system that handles combined sewer storm surges, removes fine grit particles, and lessens maintenance on operations staff.
