WASTEWATER TREATMENT APPLICATION NOTES

  • Wireless Lift Station Monitoring Application Note
    Wireless Lift Station Monitoring Application Note

    Lift stations are remote pumping facilities that move wastewater from lower to higher elevation. Monitoring lift stations is important to collection system operators.

  • Precipitant Savings Through Optimized Phosphate Elimination With Integrated Predictive Diagnostics
    Precipitant Savings Through Optimized Phosphate Elimination With Integrated Predictive Diagnostics

    Dosing of the precipitant was adjusted manually based on the laboratory measurement value of the daily composite sample and so was unable to respond to possible peaks. Although being compliant with the effluent limits, the values observed fluctuate between 0.2 and 0.8 mg/L. 

  • New Ultrasonic Flow Meters Improve Biogas Measurements
    New Ultrasonic Flow Meters Improve Biogas Measurements

    As interest in biogas grows, more attention is being paid to measuring biogas flow, which has long been a problem area in process measuring technology.

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant
    Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Breakdown of organic wastes entering a wastewater treatment plant is accomplished by using a biomass or blend of beneficial microscopic organisms, bacteria, and solids. This converts the non-settleable solids (dissolved and colloidal matter) into settleable solids, carbon dioxide, water, and energy.

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement
    Dissolved Oxygen Measurement

    One of the most important measurements in the determination of the health of a body of water is its dissolved oxygen content. The quantity of dissolved oxygen in water is normally expressed in parts per million (ppm) by weight and is due to the solubility of oxygen from the atmosphere around us.

  • Determination Of Pesticide Residues In Honey, By An Automated QuEChERS Solution
    Determination Of Pesticide Residues In Honey, By An Automated QuEChERS Solution

    The QuEChERS (Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe) sample extraction method was developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities.

  • Waste Technologies Transform Problems To Profit
    Waste Technologies Transform Problems To Profit

    Anaerobic digestion processes that radically improve the quality of wastewater while delivering green energy extracted from biological waste streams are emerging as a profitable way for agricultural and food processing industries cope with the twin impact of drought and pollution challenges.

  • Repair Or Rethink
    Repair Or Rethink

    The Moundsville Wastewater Treatment Plant in West Virginia chooses not to fix a broken blower unit, but rather to correct an outdated approach. The result is a savings of $50-60K a year in energy costs.

  • A Comparative Study Of On-Line And Laboratory TOC Analyzers For Analysis Of Municipal Wastewater
    A Comparative Study Of On-Line And Laboratory TOC Analyzers For Analysis Of Municipal Wastewater

    This application note presents comparative data obtained on influent and effluent wastewater samples using laboratory and on-line TOC analyzers employing the heated sodium persulfate oxidation technique in USEPA-approved methods 415.3 and SM 5310C.

  • Non-Contact Radar Level Meter Improves Reactor Vessel Measurement
    Non-Contact Radar Level Meter Improves Reactor Vessel Measurement

    A North Carolina-based specialty chemical manufacturer, a major producer of insect repellent, was looking for a better way to measure the liquid level in its glass-lined agitated reactor. The company uses a number of complex technologies to manufacture sebacates, adipates, isophthalates, catalysts, alkyds, and other natural and renewable chemistries based on castor and citrates.
