WASTEWATER FILTRATION RESOURCES
Automotive Plant Wash Water Removes Cutting Fluid/Oil And Suspended Solids From Water
An automotive parts manufacturer producing millions of parts per year was seeking to remove cutting fluid/oil and suspended solids from water used in its parts-washing process to enable water recycling and reuse in the parts washer. Successful lab testing and trials enabled the system integrator to win the project and install full-scale systems utilizing PPG’s UF membrane element. Read the full case study to learn more.
High-Flux Membrane Filtration For Oil And Water Separation
Environmental regulations and water scarcity have created a need for economical water treatments that increase reuse. This paper will review the new PPG membrane that has a unique composite single-layer microstructure that provides high-flux, excellent separation capabilities and exceptional durability to improve the filtration and recovery of industrial wastewater.
High-Flux Polymeric Membrane For Industrial Water Separation
Water is essential to numerous industries such as chemical manufacturing, automotive production, oil and gas refinery and power generation, yet the increasing scarcity of this precious resource makes its recovery from these activities more critical than ever.
TITAN MBR™ Provides Private Developers With Automated Operation And Compact Footprint
The packaged Smith & Loveless TITAN MBR™ Membrane BioReactor (MBR) provides commercial and private developers the most cost-effective solution for enhanced wastewater treatment and water reuse. Enhanced to make operation even more automated and simpler, and regular maintenance even safer and less frequent than any other membrane system, the new TITAN MBR™ features more compact models with the ability to achieve customized effluent goals and water reuse efficiently.
Eco-Focused Winery Reuses Wastewater And Saves Space With TITAN MBR™
Recognized as authorities of bio-dynamic farming techniques and sustainable winemaking in France, family owners of a particular Sonoma County winery sought to utilize eco-friendly practices also in their California vineyards. After purchasing the winery in 2004, the family ownership began overhauling their vineyards and overall winery operation to revitalize every aspect of the winery, from soil to wine making.
Reconditioned And Rehabbed Filters Succeed At Large Treatment Plant
A large treatment plant includes several treatment processes that contribute to providing quality recycled water pursuant to the state of California Title 22 regulations. Major treatment processes include raw wastewater pumping, preliminary treatment, primary treatment, secondary treatment, tertiary treatment with Parkson DynaSand® filters, and disinfection.
TITAN MBR™ Microfiltration Provides Private Development Site With Water Reuse Capabilities
When developers of a condominium complex sourced wastewater treatment systems, it did so with two primary requirements: efficient land utilization and high effluent quality to meet stringent guidelines. State regulators advised the developers to discuss combining its wastewater system with the owner’s association of an adjacent housing development, whose existing wastewater treatment system was aging and required augmentation.
Removing Iron From Groundwater
In 2008 Texas was facing an extended drought and the City of San Angelo was weighing its alternatives. The City felt the Hickory Aquifer well field was the best water option available, but this water contained significant amounts of radium and iron.
Pile Cloth Media Filtration For Clean Utilities
Cooling towers and boilers consume the most fresh water in the industry, with industrial process waters carrying the balance. Power plants and refineries use more water volume for the cooling process than any other area of the facility. Mining and food and beverage industries consume higher volumes for their processes. Clean water may come from a range of sources, including clarified surface waters, groundwater or properly treated wastewater (reuse) sources.
City Saves Big Money By Using Cloth Media Filters To Treat CSO Discharge
The City of Rushville, Indiana had to remedy a consent order filed in 2007 for its untreated combined sewer overflow (CSO) discharges that were polluting the Flatrock River, a violation of the Clean Water Act. The city originally planned to install a 1 MGD stormwater storage tank, but was approached by Aqua-Aerobic representatives with a pilot test proposal utilizing a new technology.
