WASTEWATER FILTRATION RESOURCES

  • Last Dollar is a year-round residential community located just outside of Telluride, Colorado. The facility had been reliant on an aging treatment system that was failing quickly and needed immediate replacement to prevent operational fines. The current technology would not meet the new and more stringent effluent requirements in Colorado, so the project had to be completed quickly and within a tight budget. AquaWorks DBO provided the permitting and site engineering support to ensure the project was completed in 8 months from contract award to system operation.

  • 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.

WASTEWATER FILTRATION SOLUTIONS

  • WWETCO FlexFilter™

    The WWETCO FlexFilter™ from WesTech uses compressible media to provide an efficient new solution for CSO, Primary Treatment, Tertiary Treatment and Industrial Water Pretreatment. The FlexFilter™ is a simple gravity system with a robust design requiring no moving parts. The combination of tapered media compression, porosity gradient within the media bed and a low flow backwash system make the WWETCO FlexFilter™ one of the most versatile and efficient filters on the market.

  • EnviQ™ Submerged Ultrafiltration Membrane

    QUA’s EnviQ™ flat sheet submerged ultrafiltration membranes have been specially developed to improve the ease of operation and maintenance of MBR facilities. EnviQ’s innovative design offers ultrafiltration quality product water with a stronger and more rugged PVDF flat sheet membrane. The unique features in EnviQ consist of reverse diffusion and specially designed air diffusers, which maximize scrubbing efficiency, lowers pressure and reduces cleaning.

  • 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.

  • Leopold Engineered Filter Media

    Located in Watsontown, Pennsylvania, the Leopold facility carries more than 5,000 tons of premium NSF 61 approved anthracite in more than 25 different ES and UC combinations - ready for quick delivery worldwide. All anthracite purchases can be independently sampled and tested prior to shipment. Tamper proof seals can also be installed by the purchaser on all anthracite immediately after sampling.

  • AltaPac™ Ultrafiltration Membrane Package System

    The AltaPac™ ultrafiltration membrane package system is designed as an economical ultrafiltration membrane treatment system that is both easy to use and simple to install. This versatile system can process flows up to 100 gpm on surface waters and 180 gpm on ground waters. The AltaPac™ can be upgraded by simply installing an additional module and changing the flow set point. The AltaPac™ systems are fully-functional, self-contained skids that have all of the features and benefits of the full-scale AltaFilter™, including automated operation and daily integrity tests. The AltaPac™ contains all the components necessary for a complete and operable water treatment system.

WASTEWATER FILTRATION VIDEO

Since 2010, DE NORA TETRA Denite filter technology has effectively lowered nitrate, phosphorus and total suspended solids (TSS) from wastewater discharged into the Four Mile Run region of the Potomac River, improving water quality conditions of the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding environment.
