WASTEWATER FILTRATION RESOURCES

  • This prominent Napa Count vineyard and winery received a prestigious green certification after committing itself to sustainable and environmentally-friendly technologies and practices, including the installation of a dynamic MBR wastewater treatment system.

  • Plants with Anaerobic Digestion see phenomenal performance improvements in this process when they removed rags, plastics, and inorganic solids from their digester with the Hydro-Sludge Screen from Hydro International. Learn about a few of the many wastewater treatment plants that have benefitted from cleaner sludge. Read this brochure for brief case studies of how plants have improved their overall operations as well as protected valuable process performance and capacity with the Hydro-Sludge Screen.

  • Young’s Cove is a masterfully planned exceptional waterfront community situated in pristine Prince Edward County, on the shores of Lake Ontario. It has panoramic views, a children’s waterpark, miles of pathways, green spaces. It covers 7,000 feet of shoreline and fronts protected wetlands and preserves hundreds of acres of forest with birds and wildlife everywhere.

  • Water filtration in steel manufacturing should be one of those things that mill owners never have to worry about. But when filter systems fail to perform as expected, it’s time to invest in a smarter design. That was the situation at a midwestern steel mill that embarked on a major, eight-year conversion of its water filtration infrastructure.

  • Pierce County’s main goal was to reduce the discharge of nitrogen to Puget Sound while also reducing plant operating costs while in nitrogen removal mode. After upgrading, the new system continues to remove greater than 80 percent of ammonia and 75 percent of total inorganic nitrogen, equating to a reduction of over 400 tons per year of nitrogen loading to Puget Sound.

  • A bacon processing plant in the Midwest was overloaded by more than 50%. Even though the system continued to maintain compliance, the plant proactively decided to expand its wastewater treatment facility to ensure they met their growing demand and maintained their standing as exemplary corporate citizens and environmental stewards.

  • Bay Meadows is a year-round RV and mobile home park located along the shores of Lake Ontario. The facility had been reliant on subsurface treatment, however current regulatory requirements eliminated the option of continuing with that approach. In addition to high bedrock, the lack of available area due to design flow values meant a more sophisticated sewage treatment solution would be necessary.

  • Water is such a fundamental necessity for life that it is often taken for granted. In modern industrial societies, the water from every tap is expected to be so pure that we can drink it without a second thought. However, the reality is much more complicated. Mankind is becoming increasingly aware that fresh water is a rarity, and the process of water treatment is vitally importance to us all. This white paper is intended to introduce the reader to the many elements that constitute the water reuse process.

  • By using Toray's low-fouling polyamide composite membranes, the WTPs at the AMATA estates operated the RO systems for more than five years before requiring replacement of the RO elements. This low rate of replacement has considerably helped the end-user save operational and capital costs and is noted as one of the most successful wastewater reuse plants in Thailand.

  • The community of Kinglake West was on a waiting list to receive government financing for a new sewer system when, in 2009, a disastrous fire swept through the area. The damage was so extensive that funding for a wastewater collection system was expedited. The new system needed to be up and running as soon as possible, without being an undue financial burden to homeowners.

WASTEWATER FILTRATION SOLUTIONS

  • Oxelia™

    Xylem’s Leopold Oxelia is an ozone-enhanced biologically active filtration system and multi-barrier solution for municipal wastewater treatment. The Leopold Oxelia system combines ozone, filtration and analytical instrumentation to deliver optimal wastewater treatment for water reuse and discharge into sensitive waters.

  • Filtomat AMF (Microfiber Filters)

    Innovative self-cleaning microfiber water filters for treatment as fine as 2 micron.

  • Increase Filtration Capacity and Performance with the Forty-X™ Disc Filter

    Increase filtration capacity and performance in existing footprint.

  • FiltraFast™ Extreme-Rate Compressible Media Filter

    FiltraFast™ is a high-rate downflow gravity or pressure filter that uses a unique compressible media. The filter only uses hydraulic loading to create the required media porosity without any mechanical compressing devices. A proprietary backwash sequence enables maximum recovery, extends media life, and limits energy consumption. This process 1) significantly reduces the footprint compared to sand filters, and 2) reduces maintenance and replacement costs required by disc filters, and other compressible media filters.

  • Filter Installations Remove Solids From FGD Scrubber Effluent

    Power plants and refineries around the world must manage and treat complex effluent waste streams from the Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) process. Flue gas is generated by the combustion process of fossil and fossil-derived fuels, such as coal, oils, and natural gas in power plants. Petrochemical refineries may generate flue gas from a number of different processes, including Catalytic Cracking, Steam Methane Reforming, and Heaters or Furnaces.

WASTEWATER FILTRATION VIDEO

In just under six months, Newterra designed and supplied this 5,000 GPD MBR Wastewater Treatment System for a small private community in Telluride, Colorado. Having the right solution and leveraging our partner AquaSolutions DBO to manage the permitting provided the customer confidence in our team made this project a resounding success.
