Coatings Company Installs Aquip System To Meet Benchmarks For Zinc
Partnering with StormwateRx, Forrest Technical Coatings sought a cost-effective treatment strategy that aligned with their corporate #environmental stewardship initiatives.
How One Company Created An Easy, Affordable Way To Stop Damage From Wipes
Toilet paper. The most essential product necessary to life besides food and water. Also cited as the first item to run out at supermarkets during an emergency. For those who live in disaster-prone areas, keeping a stockpile is normal. But for everyone else, a few extra rolls of toilet paper is just a routine part of a grocery trip. So what happened when families everywhere panic bought toilet paper to get through an extended lockdown?
How The Ukiah Wastewater Treatment Plant Solved Its Debris Problem
The water treatment needs of both Ukiah Valley and Lake County are served by the Ukiah Wastewater Treatment Plant. Nestled between Highway 101 on the west and the Russian River to the east, the facility features a scenic view of surrounding valleys of vineyards seemingly out of a Steinbeck novel. Construction of the facility was completed in 1958 back when the city had a population of around 9,000. Since then, the population has grown by about 78% to a total of 16,000 residents. The plant’s five pumps are equipped to handle 2.8 MGD (million gallons per day) of dry weather flow, and 20 MGD of wet weather flow. Even though the plant is equipped to remove some floating material, they were having issues with an overflow of unwanted debris.
Prison Facility Eliminates Frequent Submersible Pump Clogs With New Above-Grade Approach
Prison sewage often contains extra trash, towels, and rags that enter the sewerage network and cause pump clogging problems. When a correctional facility underwent a capacity expansion, changes to its problematic submersible sewage pumping station coincided, resulting in a new operator-safe approach to combatting the ills of prison sewage pump clogs.

UV Disinfection Used To Generate High-Quality Recycled Wastewater For Agricultural Operations In Spain (Case Study)
Recycled wastewater provides a cost-effective, local and sustainable water supply for multiple non-potable uses.
TASKMASTER Aids In Biomass Research
At CRBM Marine Biology Research Center in Quebec, Canada, researchers were in search of a grinder for a project involving marine biomass. A big part of this research project was focused on finding and extracting marine molecules that could fight against major diseases such as cancer (breast, lung, prostatic and intestinal). For the research, marine materials such as hard shells, lobster pieces, stretchable fish skin and even large and resistant seaweed needed to be ground to a homogeneous size so the research elements could be effectively extracted from the material. Getting the output size right was imperative to having a workable material for the very delicate extractions and research.
Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems: A Fresh Approach
In the last five years sustainability has quickly become a major development in urban drainage design, across the globe.
SUPER SHREDDER® In-Line Disintigrator
The SUPER SHREDDER® in-line macerator reduces tough wastewater solids to fine bits with a unique, high-flow, spherical rotor design. The unit is specifically designed for high capacity and minimal headloss.
24″ PIPELINE DELUMPER® Heavy-Duty Inline Processor
This 24″ PIPELINE DELUMPER® was design to handle 84,000 lbs/hr of polypropylene for a major petro-chemical company. The unit features 24 inch inlet and outlet flanges, stainless steel construction and a 50 HP motor to handle oversized agglomerates of polypropylene. The unit de-agglomerates troublesome scale and lumps that can cause operational difficulties for a petro-chemical plant. Reliability is critical as the unit is to be installed extremely high up in a relatively inaccessable area.
