Schreiber Foods Cuts Chemical Costs With BlueInGreen's CDOX Solution
At Schreiber Foods' wastewater treatment plant in Utah, mineral acids had been used for pH control in the past but were discontinued due to safety and handling issues. With an average daily flow of 250,000 gallons, the cheese and yogurt facility struggled to meet discharge permit requirements. Facility owners desired a safer, more cost-effective solution that would provide automatic control over process pH levels. Read the full case study to learn more.
Del Monte Foods Saves Millions With BlueInGreen's SDOX Solution
Plant managers at Del Monte Foods in Siloam Springs, Ark. utilized a 14 million gallon facultative lagoon to provide treatment before applying the effluent on 500 acres of land nearby. However, the facultative lagoon was unable to meet the municipal pretreatment permit requirements, resulting in surcharges of $450,000 per month. Read the full case study to learn more.
SDOX® Technology Mitigates Sulfide Production By Promoting Aerobic Environment
The Plant’s wastewater treatment facility uses four, covered anerobic lagoons to manage BOD, pretreating wastewater prior to sending the effluent to a pumping station which directs the wastewater into the municipal collection system for final treatment at the City’s wastewater treatment plant. Read more to learn how the company used hydrogen peroxide and a catalyst to maintain an aerobic environment but was unable to adequately mitigate the odor from the facility’s wastewater.
Side-Stream SDOX® Systems Enhance Biological Function And Treatment Capacity
Wastewater from the meat processing facility is treated using a sequence batch reactor and an aerobic lagoon that discharges to surface waters following treatment. The facility replaced surface aeration equipment with two, 350-HP the “no-splash,” side-stream SDOX® systems retrofitted to the treatment basin. Read the full case study to learn the results.
SDOX® Technology Fulfills Oxygen Needs Of Biological Treatment Processes Without Interrupting Operations
The wastewater facility servicing the Company's Millsboro processing plant uses a continuous process reactor and discharges to 900 acres of Company-owned cropland using spray irrigation. Read the full case study to learn how the facility replaced mechanical surface aerators with SDOX® technology to fulfill the oxygen needs of the various biological treatment processes without interrupting operations.
CDOX® And CO2-Based System Replaces Manual Chemical Dosing Of Strong-Acids, Increasing Workplace Safety
The wastewater pre-treatment plant processes effluent from the manufacturing facility prior to discharging into the sanitary sewer system for treatment at the municipal wastewater facility. Use of sulphuric acid to manage the pH of the wastewater in the buffering reactor tank prior to entering the DAF for solids and oil removal was considered to be an unnecessary risk requiring significant safety protocols.
Municipality Looks To Expand Plant Capacity While Reusing Existing Systems
Sharjah Municipality of the Untied Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) was requiring to treat more and more flow despite having very little space for new treatment systems. They were looking at wanting to expand their plants No. 4 & No. 5 plants to meet new total nitrogen limits and try to do so by having to reuse the existing systems. This type of upgrade would save on cost as well as space at the plant.
IFAS System Produces High Quality Effluent In East Central Kansas
The City of Emporia, in East Central Kansas, recently experienced an increase in population and more stringent effluent permit requirements resulting in a strained wastewater treatment plant. Emporia retained the services of a local engineering firm to evaluate the current and future needs of the system and recommend an economical, sustainable, and effective solution. After evaluating several options, World Water Works’ Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) conformed to all the requirements and was selected.
Treating Food Wastewater Efficiently Using Jet Aeration
Food processing is a water-intensive process, and its wastewater byproduct is typically high in volumetric daily flow and also biochemical and chemical oxygen demand (BOD and COD), organics, and nutrients. Consequently, significant on-site treatment and resources are necessary.
After 30 Attempts To Cut Through The FOG, the Wet Well Wizard Makes Major Improvements
The Memorial Park Pump Station (MPPS) transfers wastewater flows from Memorial Park to Chapel Street WWTP and/or Te Maunga WWTP. It is a large pump station (PS) installed within a 9.0m diameter concrete structure. The pump station is approximately 12m deep, with a 6.5m maximum water depth and split into several compartments.
