WASTEWATER FILTRATION RESOURCES

  • Mobile Home Park Installs Modular MBR System To Save Valuable Space

    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.

  • Grundfos Solutions For Industrial Water Reuse

    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.

  • Low-Fouling RO Tech Keeps Replacement Costs Down At Wastewater Reuse Plants

    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.

  • Devastated Community Finds Innovative Wastewater Solution

    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.

  • AquaDiamond Cloth Media Filters Achieve 0.1 mg/L Total Phosphorus Limit

    With the current national emphasis on restoring the water quality of America’s urban waterways, the City of Brockton, Massachusetts, Advanced Water Reclamation Facility (AWRF) wanted to stay ahead of the regulatory cycle – in particular, phosphorus discharge limits set forth by the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA). For this region of the country, the U.S. EPA has proposed total phosphorus (TP) discharge limits of 0.1 mg/L.

  • AquaDisk® Filters Reduce TSS And NTU For Power Plant Process Water

    Shepard Energy Centre (owned by Enmax and Capital Power Corporation) is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It began operating in March 2015 and is capable of generating over 800 megawatts of electricity to Alberta residents using natural gas. The facility utilizes (2) combustion turbines featuring a combinedcycle technology to generate electricity, and in addition, processes waste heat through a steam turbine to produce even more electricity. This electricity generation process makes Shepard approximately 30% more efficient than traditional coal-fired plants, and reduces overall fuel costs. Not only is Shepard’s plant more efficient, but better for the environment by emitting less than half of the CO2 emmissions per megawatt hour compared to a coal generated facility. Sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions are also reduced.

  • 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.

WASTEWATER FILTRATION SOLUTIONS

  • Denitrification Featuring Snap-T® Block Underdrain

    The DE NORA TETRA™ Denite® system combines denitrification and filtration for the effective removal of nitrate-nitrogen and suspended solids in a single treatment step. Unique SNAP-T® Block underdrain provides superior distribution of backwash air and water, resulting in more efficient bed cleaning and reduced filter operating costs. Revolutionary interlocking grid design has no moving parts and resists uplift without the need for grout or anchors.

  • Arkal Super Galaxy Self-Cleaning Disc Filter

    The Arkal Super Galaxy is a high-flow rate, self-cleaning, automatic disc filter. It is practical for water and wastewater treatment plants, central water systems for irrigation, large cooling tower power plants, ballast water, and saltwater, as it handles desalination. In addition, it controls algae and reduces hydraulic filtration degrees to less than 20 microns. Its vertical and horizontal installation options accommodate all space issues.

  • Tube Settler Systems for Clarification

    Tube settlers and parallel plates increase the settling capacity of circular clarifiers and/or rectangular sedimentation basins by reducing the vertical distance a floc particle must settle before agglomerating to form larger particles.
