WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Blower System Integration for Wastewater Aeration Applications
Blower System Integration for Wastewater Aeration Applications

The overall wastewater treatment process is complex, and each step is integral to ensuring water is properly purified. Effluent ends up in the plants, containing substances that must be removed before the water can be properly cleaned and returned for use. The range of potential contaminants is almost endless, and can include food, pulp, waste, or other substances. Afterwards, the water requires further scrubbing, with the aid of bacteria. It is in this part of the process that compressed air (ideally provided by energy-efficient rotary lobe blowers) plays a vital role.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • UV Disinfection Upgrade For Water Reuse - EWA Beach, Hawaii (Case Study)
    UV Disinfection Upgrade For Water Reuse - EWA Beach, Hawaii (Case Study)

    The Honouliuli Water Recycling Facility (WRF) includes filtration and UV disinfection to treat to Class R-1 reuse standards for various uses, including irrigation. In order to maintain high-level reuse, simplify maintenance, and reduce operation costs, the Honolulu Board of Water Supply decided to replace its 15-year-old TrojanUV4000™ with a TrojanUVSigna™.  With the high cost of power in Hawaii, this system upgrade will provide significant power savings (estimated at 75%) and will enable equipment payback in less than 2.5 years.

    Water Plant Upgrades: 4 Reasons To Break The Re-Order Habit

    A large percentage of the flow meters purchased for municipal water plants are replacements for older meters in existing facilities or distribution systems. It’s a common practice to replace aging meters with the same technology, often from the same manufacturer.

  • Benefits Of IFAS For Enhanced Biological Nutrient Removal One of the major concerns regarding municipal wastewater treatment plant discharge is the rising concentration of nutrient compounds, specifically nitrogen and phosphorus.

    Case Study: Durability For A Dollar

    Hopkins, Minnesota occupies four square miles of space in southcentral Minnesota, and is home to 17,000 residents. The area is also home to seven lift stations, which pump water and wastewater in various parts of the city – all of which operate with different manufacturer’s equipment. By The Gorman-Rupp Company

    In sewage works of Japan near bay areas, the tightening of restrictions on nitrogen and phosphorus has resulted in greater needs for reconstruction and replacement of infrastructure, to switch from the conventional activated sludge process to the advanced treatment process without newly expanding aeration tanks.

  • How To Buy Right, Not Cheap When It Comes To Solids-Handling Pumps

    Companies using solids-handling pumps as part of their processes know that even though the pumps are typically moving trash and other waste products, the type of equipment used can be a huge business decision. Most applications warrant more attention than simply choosing the first pump that pops out of a catalogue. By The Gorman-Rupp Company
