• The Riviera Utilities Wastewater Treatment Plant at Wolf Creek serves its community of approximately 20,000 residents and had been operating a biological treatment system consisting of a 35-year-old extended aeration oxidation ditch process. The plant was rated for 2.0 MGD and needed to expand capacity to 3.5 MGD due to growing demand. Instead of taking the traditional approach of adding an additional oxidation ditch to increase treatment capacity, Riviera Utilities had the desire to “future-proof” the plant and prepare to meet more stringent effluent requirements, including Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) that were anticipated to be enacted in the future.

  • There are numerous uses for heat exchangers in breweries — from cooling, pasteurizing, and fermenting products to efficiently dealing with waste streams such as yeast slurry. Compared to other methods of heating, heat exchangers can be much more energy-efficient, providing both environmental and economic benefits.

  • TIGG® was contracted to treat emissions from a sanitary landfill* where an estimated 35,000 55-gallon drums were disposed of that contained solvents, paint sludges, cleaners, and other hazardous waste. A portion of the site to be remediated was covered with a temporary structure.

  • Sigura™ calcium hypochlorite offers cooling tower operators and their service providers a highly effective biocide designed for controlling microorganisms to maintain system cleanliness, achieve associated production efficiency gains, and help guard against biofouling. Learn how a West Coast service provider's switch to Calcium Hypochlorite lead to a more consistent chlorine concentration and eliminated the need for frequent pump adjustments.

  • Unlike backwash systems, scraper strainers reliably resist clogging and fouling when faced with micron-sized particles, oversized solids, and high solids concentration.

  • Microplastics, small plastic particles with sizes ranging from 5 millimeters to 1 nanometer with various morphologies such as microfibers, fragments, pellets (nurdles), or microbeads, have received increasing attention, including upcoming statewide monitoring in California.

  • The proper selection and use of wet-end biocidal treatments is a key element in the effort to optimize efficacy and efficiency in papermaking. Biofilm control represents a challenging form of microbial control in a mill and can lead to a variety of mechanical and product issues. Chlorine-based biocides are often selected to maintain microbial control for cost, efficacy, and ease of application considerations. Hydantoin stabilization technology was developed to benefit from the advantages of chlorine-based oxidants.  

  • Large, distributed water networks are not well-suited for conventional water monitoring processes which rely on manual sampling and lab testing. In particular, this midstream oil and gas company had a need to detect Iron, Selenium, and other heavy metals at a precise level comparable to a lab. In addition, it wasn’t feasible to manually test the entire water system at the requisite frequency. Finally, instrument reliability and unplanned downtime were an issue.

  • Lift stations are an essential component of many municipal and industrial wastewater collection systems to move sewage from low to high elevation. Such is the case for the John Street lift station in Monroe County, New York, which serves both a large residential community and the nearby campus of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).

  • A microbrewery utilizing groundwater as one of the water sources in the brewing process had difficulty receiving permits. A full lifecycle remediation and monitoring process needed to be in place to receive permits.

  • 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors

    Capable of both adding and removing dissolved gases, 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors are commonly used for carbon dioxide removal, deoxygenation, nitrogenation and carbonation. Highly compact and efficient, they use microporous membranes with nearly 10x the gas exchange surface area of conventional vacuum towers.

    The modular nature of Liqui-Cel membrane contactors makes it easy to incorporate them into skidded systems, helping to lower installation costs. Even after initial installation, Liqui-Cel membrane contactors can be readily expanded to meet growing capacity.

  • 3M Filtration And Separation

    With an extensive line of filtration and dissolved gas control systems, 3M™ provides solutions to help keep your business operating at full capacity.

  • Safety Vapor Tank, 21,000 gal

    Make sure your site is clean and your crew is safe with this chemical storage tank. This tank is ideal for containing harmful chemical vapors used in processing plants, industrial plants, construction or oil drilling applications.
