WASTEWATER DISINFECTION RESOURCES

  • The City of Belleville, Ontario was planning on re-developing downtown waterfront property into a public space containing a park and a green space. Unfortunately, the proposed site had a long history as an industrial site – initially for a coal gasification plant from 1854 to 1947 and then as a bulk oil storage facility from 1930 to 1990.

  • The Tri-Lakes Wastewater Treatment Facility located in Monument, CO, receives flow from the Woodmoor, Palmer Lake, and Monument Sanitation Districts. The plant discharges treated effluent to Monument Creek, which is within the Fountain Creek Water Shed. Originally, the Tri-Lakes facility consisted of a three-cell lagoon. This was replaced by a two-basin Biolac Wave-Ox system, which was installed in 1990 and later upgraded in 1998 to a three-basin system with a capacity of 4.2 MGD.

  • Every stage in a wastewater treatment process is important to achieve the desired treatment results. However, primary treatment and tertiary are critical to the overall process. In the primary treatment process solids are reduced to a large extent. Without this step, subesequent treatment would be less effective. In tertiary treatment, harmful microbiological matter is rendered killed or inactive so that it will not cause sickness to those organism that encounter it.

  • In many water and wastewater treatment applications, there are a number of pollutants that are difficult to reduce by physical, chemical, or biological means alone. In more recent years, there has been a growing concern regarding pharmaceutical drugs in drinking water and aquatic environments. Pesticides get caught in runoff from farms into freshwater supplies. Personal care products are typically washed down the drain into whatever system they are linked to. Landfill leachate is a toxic cocktail of compounds that can leak into groundwater sources. Such contaminants fall into the category of micropollutants, because they are so small. Their size alone is part of the reason, they are so difficult to remove from water and wastewater by certain means. More efficient removal requires a more powerful oxidation process, this process is called an advanced oxidation process (AOP).

  • Wastewater treatment solutions have become one of the significant moves to filter waste water. Whether it is for fighting with the growing shortage of drinking water or finding better water sources for wastewater, several technologies have been practice for centuries, and MBBR wastewater treatment is being used for filtering waste water in both industrial and domestic sectors.

  • China Steel Corporation, a steel producer in Taiwan, produces wastewater that is high in organics, ammonia, solids, and other waste products. The wastewater is treated on-site using a series of biological treatment processes. The variable influent quality can make it challenging to meet treatment objectives.

  • The U.S. ultraviolet water (UV) water treatment equipment market for industrial and drinking water applications is competitive, mature, and saturated. The market is dominated by a few leading players holding significant market shares.

  • When it comes to water and wastewater treatment systems, operational and performance variation will come from different components, including what treatment processes are deployed, whether chemicals are utilized, or how much power the treatment processes require. With many treatment systems, there is much consideration given to a particular central component akin to the heart and soul of the process. In the case of a UV system, the ultraviolet (UV) lamps are this component.

  • Every stage in a wastewater treatment process is important to achieve the desired treatment results. However, primary treatment and tertiary are critical to the overall process. In the primary treatment process, solids are reduced to a large extent. Without this step, subsequent treatment would be less effective. In tertiary treatment, harmful microbiological matter is rendered killed or inactive so that it will not cause sickness to those organisms that encounter it.

  • Advanced oxidation treatment system and water treatment plant upgrade save money.

WASTEWATER DISINFECTION SOLUTIONS

  • Microbial Control In Cheese Making

    Microbial contamination of food and beverage products is a potentially catastrophic occurrence resulting in foodborne illness or food spoilage. The same nutritive properties that render cheese and dairy products such a valuable food also provide an ideal growth medium for microbes if contamination occurs.

  • ETS-UV™ For Wastewater Treatment

    Many municipalities had adopted ultraviolet (UV) disinfection treatment over chemical based disinfection.  UV disinfection is efficient, low cost and an environmentally friendly way to disinfect water.  The process is safer for operators and the community; UV is a chemical free process that adds nothing to the water but light.  Read more about how the UV disinfection works.  Unlike chlorine, UV disinfection is able to inactivate pathogens such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium.  Discharged wastewater with these pathogens becomes dangerous drinking and recreational water for downstream communities.    

  • Constant Chlor® MC5 Feeder

    The Constant Chlor® MC5 Feeder system provides reliable chlorine solutions for water treatment plants, waste water plants and water reclamation facilities. The Constant Chlor® system consistently delivers liquid available chlorine for disinfection applications that kills bacteria, controls algae and removes organic contaminants. The feeders use EPA registered Constant Chlor® Briquettes that work in conjunction with the feeder to produce a fresh concentrated liquid chlorine solution for clean, clear, sanitized water. Treats facilities with up to 10 MGD ranging from a minimum of 5 lbs a day available chlorine to 83 lbs a day available chlorine.

  • Foambuster

    The patented Foambuster uses the same glass-lined ductile iron nozzles as Rotamix but also uses a stainless steel splashplate located below the nozzle to deflect the nozzle discharge and create a broad spray of sludge, which wets and breaks up foam forming on the surface of the digester. Digester sludge is pumped through the Foambuster either by the Rotamix Chopper Pump or by a separate Chopper Pump. When the Foambuster is used in conjunction with a tank mixing system, which produces a rotational mixing pattern in the tank, only one spray nozzle will be required for effective foam control.

  • TOC Reduction

    NeoTech Aqua Solutions provides the most efficient and cost-effective UV systems for destroying Total Organic Carbons (TOC’s) in water.  Whether your destroying NDMA, 1,4-dioxane, TCE, MTBE, urea, endocrine disruptors or other organics, only NeoTech Aqua provides ultraviolet TOC reduction with a treatment chamber optimized for low pressure mercury lamps.  As a result, NeoTech Aqua’s UV systems achieve a three times greater TOC reduction per kilowatt compared to standard UV systems, reducing our clients’ costs and energy consumption. In addition to efficiently generating ample 185 nm UV for TOC reduction, NeoTech Aqua’s TOC reduction systems also generate significant levels of 254 nm UV which serve as a powerful disinfectant, providing you both TOC-free and organism-free product water.

ABOUT WASTEWATER DISINFECTION

 

Wastewater disinfection takes place after primary, secondary and sometimes tertiary wastewater treatment. It is typically a final step to remove organisms from the treated water before the effluent is released back into the water system. Disinfection prevents the spread of waterborne diseases by reducing microbes and bacterial numbers to a regulated level.

A variety of physical and chemical methods are used to disinfect wastewater prior to it being released into natural waterways. Historically, the chemical agent of choice for municipal wastewater treatment has been chlorine, due to its disinfecting properties and low cost. However, the rising cost of chlorine and concerns that low chlorine concentrations can still be toxic to fish and other wildlife, has given rise to more physical methods of wastewater disinfection being adopted such as ozonation or ultraviolet (UV) light.  

The use of ozone as a disinfection agent has the added benefit of increasing the dissolved oxygen content of the treated wastewater. However, because the ozone has to be generated, ozonation can require prohibitive up-front capital expenditure compared to traditional chlorination. UV disinfection has been growing in popularity as a wastewater disinfection method, in large part because of the life-cycle economics of the equipment and the fact that, like ozone, there is no toxic residual.
