The Coors Brewery facility in Golden, Colorado utilizes the Duperon® FlexRake® FPFS to treat the process influent resulting from their brewing operation.
Among the pump stations managed by Branford, CT, is a long-term problematic station located at Burban Street. There were two primary problems at this station: 1) clogging from modern day trash and raggy, stringy materials, and 2) fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from a nearby nursing home and restaurants, which accumulate and float on the water surface, resulting in a horrendous mess.
The City of Beaumont Wastewater Treatment Plant receives an average flow of 46 MGD at its headworks, and the variety of sources of that flow can make for unpredictable volume and debris.
The Arapahoe County Water/Wastewater Authority holds a unique client within its district: the Arapahoe County Detention Center.
When Hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the Gulf Coast in 2005, the impact was immediate and devastating.
The West Bay County WWTP, rated for 10 MGD and seeing an average flow of 4.5-6 MGD; prior to the installation of the Duperon® Washer Compactor, the plant collected approximately 20 yards of debris each week.
The Roaring Fork Water & Sanitation District WWTP receives residential activated sludge at an ultimate site capacity of 1 MGD.
The City of Mamaroneck WWTF has been a customer of Duperon Corporation since 2011, when the Duperon® FlexRake® FP was first installed at the facility.
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.
Efficiency goals met! Life expectancy of expensive variable frequency drives increased! Ragging build-up on selector mixers all but eliminated! Reduction of debris from 25-30 gallons to a few handfuls! Highest possible percentage of inorganics removed from flow! Plant kept in amazingly consistent treatment mode! These are not the dreams of treatment plant supervisors but are actual results produced by EscaMAX® Perforated Screens.
Reduction of ragging is merely one of the benefits the EscaMAX® Perforated Plate Screen bestows upon its implementer. But this is such a huge factor, that mitigating it brings night-and-day results in other areas such as reducing debris in the grit channel, increasing space for energy-producing biosolids in tanks, and releasing cleaner end products.
As the cost of and demand for potable water increases, engineers, planners, and utilities need reliable, innovative methods for protecting this valuable resource. Cost-effective and environmentally sustainable wastewater collection and treatment systems are vital components in the water cycle and therefore require careful analysis. While there is no single solution for every site or community, traditional ‘big-pipe’ systems are rarely appropriate in sensitive environments; fortunately, today there are more options than ever to consider.
