    Headworks Bar Screens Solve Reweaving Problems At East Greenbush, NY Pump Station - And More!

    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.

  • Plant Operations And Maintenance Staff Benefits From New Headworks
    Plant Operations And Maintenance Staff Benefits From New Headworks

    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.

  • Replaced Screen Brings WWTP From The Stone Age To The Modern Age
    Replaced Screen Brings WWTP From The Stone Age To The Modern Age

    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.

  • Dependable Operation And Longevity Invaluable To Guelph’s Screening Process
    Dependable Operation And Longevity Invaluable To Guelph’s Screening Process

    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.

  • WWTP’s Screw Press Reduces Odors, Saves Money, And Takes Up Less Physical Space
    WWTP’s Screw Press Reduces Odors, Saves Money, And Takes Up Less Physical Space

    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.

  • Springdale, Arkansas, Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators Call Headworks Screens 'Bulletproof'
    Springdale, Arkansas, Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators Call Headworks Screens 'Bulletproof'

    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.

  • Dewatering Process Liberates Contentnea MSD Personnel
    Dewatering Process Liberates Contentnea MSD Personnel

    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.

  • Dewatering Technology Dramatically Improves Operations
    Dewatering Technology Dramatically Improves Operations

    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.

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

To produce grit with less than 5 % organic content, we have developed our COANDA Grit Washer RoSF 4. This sophisticated grit washer, combines in a single unit, the conventional functions of grit classifying, conveying and dewatering with a highly effective grit washing process.

RSS Externally Fed Drum Screens RSS Externally Fed Drum Screens
