WASTEWATER TREATMENT RESOURCES
Common Types Of UV Lamps For Chemical-Free Water Disinfection
When it comes to water and wastewater treatment systems, operational and performance variation will come from different components, including what treatment processes are deployed, whether chemicals are utilized, or how much power the treatment processes require. With many treatment systems, there is much consideration given to a particular central component akin to the heart and soul of the process. In the case of a UV system, the ultraviolet (UV) lamps are this component.
HST™ Turbocompressor For Sky-High Savings In Wastewater Treatment
The town of Fraser, Colorado, USA, with an annual mean temperature of 32.5°F is the coldest town in the lower 48 states and gets frost year-round. At an elevation of 8’574 feet, it is also the highest location for Sulzer’s HST 20 turbocompressor in the world. The Fraser WWTP high-speed blower upgrade was completed in early 2019, replacing older centrifugal blowers, which were loud and costly to operate.
HST™ Turbocompressor Survives A Category 4 Hurricane
Victoria, Texas, is a small South Texas town of approx. 65’000 people just 30 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. This area is considered as humid subtropical, and the temperatures regularly exceed 100°F for the months of June through August. A record high temperature of 111°F was recorded in September 2000 and a record low of 9°F in December 1989. This location displays one of the most extreme temperature differentials in the United States. The HST high-speed blower was used in the new plant design which replaced an older two-stage trickling filter design in the Victoria WWTP.
Refinery Treats Groundwater Contamination While Saving Precious Facility Space
A large, Midwestern oil refinery installed two identical, 110’ diameter S&L Model R OXIGEST® treatment systems to solve a groundwater treatment problem on-site. Each plant incorporates aeration, clarification, and effluent holding, treating peak flows of 7.2 MGD combined; 4.3 MGD in each plant.
Integrated Solutions Drive Resource Recovery And System Resiliency
Traditional approaches or wait-and-see tactics, which at times can save the day, too often result in missed opportunities for incremental improvements that could act as building blocks of a long-term strategy. Integrated solutions can reveal this strategy road map for a resilient and reliable water infrastructure system.
Modernizing Monitoring And Manual Data Entry For Water And Wastewater
Advancements in security and technology help bring confidence — and a multitude of benefits — to remote, cloud-based utility monitoring.
Pros And Cons Of Wastewater Treatment Methods: Coagulation And Disinfection
Every stage in a wastewater treatment process is important to achieve the desired treatment results. However, primary treatment and tertiary are critical to the overall process. In the primary treatment process, solids are reduced to a large extent. Without this step, subsequent treatment would be less effective. In tertiary treatment, harmful microbiological matter is rendered killed or inactive so that it will not cause sickness to those organisms that encounter it.
Coronavirus And The Water Cycle — Here Is What Treatment Professionals Need To Know
As the global health community tracks the spread of this virus, it’s important for water and wastewater professionals to keep updated on potential impacts.
4 Benefits Of Electrocoagulation For Groundwater Treatment
Even though groundwater sources are somewhat safer from pollution and contamination due to their underground location, they are still susceptible.
How To Utilize Electrocoagulation For Efficient Phosphorus Removal In Wastewater
In this article, we will discuss what phosphorus is, the effects of elevated phosphorus levels on an ecosystem, and how innovative electrocoagulation technology can be sustainably used for effective phosphorus removal in wastewater and water sources.
