WASTEWATER TREATMENT 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.

  • Since March of last year, when the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, the U.S. has recorded over 33.7 million cases of infection and surpassed 600,000 deaths due to the highly transmissible viral disease.

  • Water distribution system infrastructures are designed to deliver drinking water to end users, but utilities are continually faced with distinct challenges to fulfill this fundamental objective. For example, these utilities improve customer service by delivering water with high pressure, but on the other hand, water conservation policies push them to minimize water distribution leaks. For this reason, water utilities invest heavily in SCADA and telemetry technologies to support operational decisions. However, unlocking historical operational data and fusing it with other data (such as billing information from AMR/AMI networks) to generate actionable insights has proven difficult.

  • Sometimes, a meter installation isn’t as straightforward as we’d like it to be. Many flow monitoring projects can start out simple and evolve to be very complex, especially when the meter is meant to solve a challenging measurement issue. To prevent potentially time-consuming and frustrating delays and issues, McCrometer offers a startup service. So, what does this service include, and should you book this service for your next meter project?

  • Electromagnetic (mag) meters are a desirable metering choice for their incredible accuracy and low to no maintenance required over its lifespan. Operating with no moving parts, the appeal is high – however, the ability to troubleshoot in-field is challenging and time-consuming. Luckily, there’s a major contributing factor in installing an effective mag meter that can set you (and your operations) up for success: grounding.

  • Oftentimes in municipal flow applications utilities and districts opt for a propeller meter, an electromagnetic (mag) meter, or another type of “no moving parts” meter like an ultrasonic device. However, there are instances in which a differential pressure (DP) meter is a more attractive option, and specifically the VM V-Cone, McCrometer’s DP meter designed for a wide variety of municipal flow applications.

  • Those familiar with propeller flow meters are usually familiar with their common counterparts, flow straighteners and vanes. Implemented to reduce swirl in shorter straight-run applications, straighteners are a complementary instrument for agriculture, irrigation, and municipal flow measurement applications.

  • The V-Cone® is widely known for its success as a metering solution in the oil and gas industry, but it’s also a burgeoning solution for many industrial applications, including district steam. The V-Cone’s tolerance for a range of flow conditions and media, as well as available customization, make it a viable, lasting solution for many unique new and retrofit steam applications.

  • The old adage about genius being 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration originated in the late 19th century, but in today’s world of wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) design, engineers are still haunted by onerous design processes and iterations. All that could soon change thanks to a design generator software that automates much of the ‘perspiration’ in favor of leaving more time for ‘inspiration.’ Here’s how it works.

  • Fear of the unknown is a common concern among water distribution and wastewater collection system operators when buried infrastructure or incomplete recordkeeping obscure leaks, inefficiencies, and the causes behind them. Finding better ways to identify and quantify utility problem areas is like searching for hidden treasure. Fortunately, comprehensive analytics solutions built around existing mapping and data points offer new hope.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

  • Duperon Dual Auger System

    A new alternative to grinders and chopper pumps in the collection system and plant headworks: the Duperon Dual Auger system is our solution to wipes.

  • Battery Powered Dura Mag™ Flow Meter

    The Dura Mag is an ideal solution for nearly any water manager. With a five-year battery life (and three-year battery warranty), the Dura Mag eliminates the need for AC power connection, and provides the easiest installation available on the market for a flanged mag flow meter. In addition, the Dura Mag comes equipped with an internal datalogger with five years of data storage to ensure you always have access to your historical data. The Dura Mag also has several telemetry-ready output options, and the converter settings are USB port accessible which eliminates accidental setting changes.

  • newtN Telemetry Systems

    newtN Telemetry Systems is a real game changer for remote telemetry. The newtN customer portal is cloud-based, allowing for real-time information access. Check out the brochure to learn even more about this innovative system.

  • Dioxin & PCB Analysis

    Testing for dioxins and PCBs in environmental samples can be challenging due to matrix effects and the need to be able to detect these compounds at very low levels. 

    The Dioxin and PCB analysis brochure covers a variety of topics:

    • Dioxin prep system for thorough cleanup with significant time-savings
    • ORBO™-1000 samplers for collecting dioxins/furans and PCBs from air
    • GC columns suitable for analysis of dioxins and PCBs
    • SupraSolv® high quality solvents for trace GC analysis
    • Certified reference materials and analytical standards for accurate analysis
  • Schreiber Fuzzy Filter

    Schreiber’s Fuzzy Filter is a unique compressible media filter that very effectively replaces conventional media filtration and can be applied to a wide range of filtration applications in the industrial, municipal as well as commercial markets.

  • Continuously Sequencing Reactor

    The Continuously Sequencing Reactor is a Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) system utilizing continuous flow in a single basin. It sequences through the 3 process phases required for BNR – Oxic, Anoxic and Anaerobic – in one basin. The 3 phases do not occur at the same time in the basin. They occur sequentially – one after the other, repetitively, over time. During the Oxic phase, the entire basin is Oxic (i.e. aerobic).

WASTEWATER TREATMENT VIDEOS

Xylem introduces the latest innovation for clarification: the Leopold Texler lamella clarifier. Texler’s inclined lamella settler increases the effective clarification area. This reduces the required space by 80% compared to conventional rectangular clarifiers and allows for water flow to be increased within the same small footprint.
