After an international tender process, the Israel Electric Company (IEC) chose Fluence to design, manufacture, and supply containerized ultrapure water production systems for use as makeup water for heat-recovery steam generators (HRSG) and for NOx emission reduction at recently upgraded power plants across Israel. More than 15 units of 20 m3/h production modules, each fitted in two 40-foot shipping containers, were provided to seven power plants. Their compact design allowed for ease of installation, operation, and maintenance while meeting the customer’s demanding engineering standards.

In late 2012, production capacity issues arose with several of the clay tile filters at the NewPage Biron paper mill in Wisconsin. Process engineers decided to retrofit two of their four existing dual cell filters with an underdrain system and media retainer. This case study details the system and explains how it doubled capacity for the two filters and improved effluent water quality, leading to fewer plant shutdowns due to seal failures within the mill.

This video provides a simple overview of the screen’s creation, function, features and benefits. From the beginning, Parkson engineers took it a step further by working with a leading design firm to rethink the industry standard step style screen from the ground up. They reviewed current offerings on the market and improved upon the common weak points. The result is the most durable escalating screen out there – the Aqua Rhino.
Whatever the setting, and however contaminated your water, BakerCorp has a solution. That's the message shared by Mehrzad Emanuel (Vice President, Filtration), Doug Herber (Vice President, Water Treatment Technology), and Bruce Lesikar (Director of Engineering) in this video presentation from WEFTEC, where they discuss BakerCorp's electrocoagulation technology and its mobile treatment platform with Water Online Chief Editor Kevin Westerling.
Water from cooling towers attracts and absorbs airborne contaminants on a continuous basis. Typically, 85% of suspended solids in cooling water and hot water loops are smaller than 5 microns. Scientific studies have shown that these small particles (5 microns and less) are the adherent contaminants fouling the water loop and process cooling system.
Founded in 2017, under the consolidation of global water industry leaders Emefcy and RWL Water, Fluence was established with a vision to become the key global provider in decentralized water and wastewater solutions.
Winemakers everywhere are discovering that pumping the juice through a Mazzei® macro aeration Wine Pump-over Venturi injector during fermentation aspirates a substantial amount of air/oxygen into the liquid. Mazzei Injectors are highly efficient, low cost devices for energizing fermentation. Watch Scott Laboratories’ video of the Mazzei Wine Pump-over Injector in action.
Today, over-the-counter and prescription drugs have become a serious threat to our water systems. Ozone (O3) is a naturally occurring compound in the form of a gas that is a powerful oxidizer and strong disinfectant. Water can be efficiently and effectively disinfected with Mazzei® Venturi injectors, GDT™ ozone technology, and Mazzei Pipeline Flash Reactors.
While point level measuring approaches are regarded as simple and user-friendly, they lack the capabilities of more sophisticated continuous measuring instruments.
Since 1999, when business people at more than 150,000 companies worldwide wanted to keep better track of their customers — and be more responsive — they turned to Salesforce.com and its industry-leading customer relationship management (CRM) software. Now, companies looking for ideas on sustainability, in terms of water recycling, can turn to the new Salesforce Tower in San Francisco as a leading-edge environmental solution as well. It is estimated that the building’s water recycling system will save more than 7.5-million gallons of drinking water annually — enough to supply more than 16,000 San Francisco residents.
The Greater Lawrence Sanitary District (GLSD) in North Andover, MA, was one of 28 organizations nationwide to be honored for an innovative water or wastewater project in the most recent PISCES Recognition Program sponsored by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF). PISCES stands for Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success.
The Chesapeake Bay watershed, North America’s largest estuary, is huge. It includes parts of six states from New York to Virginia, the entire District of Columbia, and drains 64,000 square miles of land. The bay and surrounding area is home to a complex, intricate food web and a large population of wildlife. Various pollution sources cause stress on this system.
All communities depend on clean water and that supply of clean water depends on the actions of members in the community and outside of it. The small city of Kutztown lies within the Saucony Creek watershed in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The watershed is mostly agricultural, dotted with small family crop and livestock farms, and the activities on these farms affect water supplies near and far.
Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.
