The sky is blue, grass is green, and, someday, your pumps are going to clog. It’s just another fact of life — or is it?
The Chiquita WRF plant was looking to improve the performance of their existing gravity thickeners better than the 2.3% DS that they were previously achieving. In their search for a solution they discovered the S-Disc technology from Huber Technology.
BCR Environmental utilizes the Huber Technology S-Disc thickener in their sludge neutralization process. Because the system is both simple and reliable they chose to standardize on the S-Disc. The design of the technology enables the operators easy access to monitor their process. Read how BCR is putting the S-Disc to work.
Al Shamal is the capital city of the municipality of Madinat ash Shamal in Qatar. With the majority of the town's population not yet connected to a sewer network, there was an immediate need to provide a wastewater treatment plant to treat wastewater generated from the towns' population and small industries. Ashghal, the Public Works Authority of Qatar and its end user, decided to install a tanker discharge facility with a compact sewage treatment plant to produce effluent suitable for reuse in irrigation.
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.
The grit particle is a microscopic menace that still confounds many wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators. It is not always easy to recognize how much grit is costing you in equipment wear, maintenance, and energy usage, let alone to know the best way to rid your plant of it.
Previously to installing their new Septage Receiving Station 18-Mile Creek WWTP had very little protection from unknown debris entering their plant from haulers. The plant reports that in the time that the RoFAS Septage Drum and WAP Washpress have been operating, they’ve processed many septage loads without issue.
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.
