Protecting Water Resources: A Multifaceted Approach
Protecting Water Resources: A Multifaceted Approach

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.

    Small-Town Mayor Tackles A Big Problem

    Public concern was mounting over the lack of adequate wastewater treatment for the vast majority of homes in Fulton, Alabama. High groundwater levels contributed to septic system failures at some residences, while many others had no septic system at all.

  • Fats, Oils & Grease Are No Longer A Struggle at Napa Sanitation District
    Fats, Oils & Grease Are No Longer A Struggle at Napa Sanitation District

    The Huber Technology Strainpress has helped Napa Sanitation District maximize its investment in the FOG receiving and injection system by improving operations, ensuring the protection of downstream components and enhancing the production of a valuable, revenue generating asset.

  • Fort Worth Turns A Liability Into An Asset
    Fort Worth Turns A Liability Into An Asset

    Fort Worth Village Creek has gone far beyond managing its scum. The plant has implemented an efficient way to continuously skim the scum out of the channel flow and effectively process it through anaerobic co-digestion so that its resulting methane gas is useable. In short, the liability was turned into an asset.

  • Dewatering Technology Dramatically Improves Operations
    Dewatering Technology Dramatically Improves Operations

    In a recent retrofit replacing a belt filter press with a Huber Q-Press®, the plant operations staff at Robinson WWTP leveraged the technology’s greatly improved dewatering performance to solve their sludge storage and distribution strategies. As result they are able to radically improve both operations and reduce costs.

  • Headworks International Takes Valatie, New York, From “Rags To Riches!”
    Headworks International Takes Valatie, New York, From “Rags To Riches!”

    The first Santa Claus Club in the United States was formed in 1946 by World War II veterans to provide gifts for critically ill children in the village of Valatie, New York.  It has since grown to the point that on Christmas Eve, a Santa visits every child in the village below the age of 10 and gives him a gift.  

  • Plant Solves Headworks Screening Challenge
    Plant Solves Headworks Screening Challenge

    Oostburg’s Black River Falls facility is a lean operation with limitations in space for screening technology and in the staff resources available to manage, maintain and report on the Village’s processes. Even though space was limited, Oostburg knew that putting a headworks screening solution in place would improve their operational efficiency. Oostburg found the perfect solution using the Huber Technology RoK4 confined space vertical screen.

  • Automated Solar Sludge Drying Frees Up Personnel
    Automated Solar Sludge Drying Frees Up Personnel

    Solar dryers are fully automated to feed, move, and discharge biosolids cost-effectively. Even climate changes throughout the year are easily monitored and controlled to produce optimal output. Installation is very flexible with options to add components at a later date. Full automation means employees seldom need to enter the greenhouse and are free to use their time elsewhere.

A Sunny Outlook For Tooele City Water Reclamation Facility
A Sunny Outlook For Tooele City Water Reclamation Facility

The City of Tooele, UT was looking to update their Bio-Solids program and move away from a limiting Class B product. They needed to produce a more flexible reusable material. The City found the Huber Technology SOLSTICE® to be the perfect solution and was pleased to discover the technology to be simple to maintain as well as provide a cost-effective operation. Find out how the dryer raised the quality of the bio-product to Class A.

AdvanTex<sup>®</sup> AX-Max™ Treatment Systems AdvanTex® AX-Max™ Treatment Systems

Proven, Dependable, Scalable

Orenco’s AdvanTex® AX-Max™ Treatment Systems are a dependable, proven technology for treating domestic-strength, primary-treated effluent to better-than-secondary standards, including nitrogen-reduction. They consist of sturdy, watertight fiberglass tanks that incorporate recirculation-blend and discharge tankage in a single module. Each unit also includes pumping systems, ventilation, and a lightweight, highly absorbent, engineered textile media that treats a tremendous amount of wastewater in a small space.

Applications

AX-Max Treatment Systems are intended for large residential applications or for commercial and municipal applications that require advanced secondary treatment. They eliminate the need for separate recirculation and discharge tanks by performing both functions within a single module. AX-Max units are ideal for subdivisions, “fringe” development, hotels, resorts, schools, churches, businesses, manufactured home parks, RV parks, campgrounds, rest areas, and truck stops.

Flows

Depending on model, a single AdvanTex AX-Max unit can treat flows of 5000-15,000 gpd (18.9-56.8 m3/day). AdvanTex Treatment Systems are modular, however, and can be installed in multi-unit arrays to handle higher flows.

Robust Septage Receiving Provides Reliable Operations And Creates Revenue Robust Septage Receiving Provides Reliable Operations And Creates Revenue

Huber Technology RoFAS Septage Station is designed to handle environments that would cause standard Septage Stations to fail. Easily processes large debris protecting headworks from unpredictable septage. Center feed allows for rapid offloading. Option for automatic hauler station. Revenue opportunities quickly realizes return-on-investment.

SCOUT Hydro Profiling System SCOUT Hydro Profiling System

The Reliant Water Technologies SCOUT Hydro Profiling System is the answer to obtaining clear and concise shallow water survey data quickly and inexpensively. By not only providing a visual hydrographic ‘picture’ of everything underwater, in any shallow body of water, the SCOUT also provides the volume of sludge in the water body (as well as the volume of free water). The ‘picture’ provided is color enhanced in order to provide clear, definitive delineation of variable depths of sludge, or debris, and includes multi-point water depth over-lays.

HUBER RoSF4 Coanda® Grit Washer Classifier HUBER RoSF4 Coanda® Grit Washer Classifier

STEPSCREEN&reg; Fine Bar Screen STEPSCREEN® Fine Bar Screen

Huber Technology, through its subsidiary Huber-Hydropress, is the inventor of the STEPSCREEN® concept. This design was unveiled in the early 1980’s to much acclaim and was readily adopted into the designs of well over 3,000 facilities worldwide since the STEPSCREEN® introduction.

Alkagen® Solution - Odor and Corrosion Control Alkagen® Solution - Odor and Corrosion Control

Alkagen® Solution is a fast-acting pH shift technology that effectively controls odors and corrosion in wastewater systems.  This unique, proven product is environmentally safe and uses a combination of alkaline and nitrate technologies to remove and prevent hydrogen sulfide.  Alkagen solution also reduces the impact of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) in the system while providing a beneficial alkaline supplement for the treatment plant.

Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF)

Headworks has designed and manufactured DAFs (Dissolved Air Flotation) for many years for the cruise ship industry where the primary goal is always to operate on a small footprint.  As cruise ships can’t simply call a plumber when there is a problem, reliability of the equipment is paramount as well. It was, therefore, only a natural progression for us to expand the line into land based applications. In combination with our MBBR/IFAS solutions Headworks’ DAFs provide a super compact complete core treatment system.
