  • Maximizing EDI With 3M Liqui-Cel
    Maximizing EDI With 3M Liqui-Cel

    Electrodeionization (EDI) is a cutting-edge water treatment process that is now used all over the world. While it’s become the solution of choice for countless operations, it’s not exactly worry-free to utilize. When complications arise with performance optimization, it can be difficult to know where to turn.

  • Lessons Learned From Flint
    Lessons Learned From Flint

    We all hope that the Flint Water Crisis – where cost-cutting measures led to the drinking water supply to become severely tainted with lead – was an isolated incident. However, it is not impossible that a similar event could happen again, especially in a similarly  desperate city with limited financial resources. Here are a few key points that should be considered to avoid repeating such a tragedy.

  • Using AMERICAN Products, Champlain, NY, Prepares For Business Boom Near US/Canadian Border
    Using AMERICAN Products, Champlain, NY, Prepares For Business Boom Near US/Canadian Border

    A key driver of economic development is the availability of water and wastewater services. For the Town and Village of Champlain, NY, this is no exception. To capitalize on the region’s economic potential and make more land available for new businesses, the Town and Village of Champlain are working together on the Shared Water Project, a major water system upgrade that includes installing 44,000 feet of AMERICAN ductile iron pipe.

  • The Power Of Reclaimed Water
    The Power Of Reclaimed Water

    The population continues to grow, demanding more output from fewer resources. This strain is felt acutely in the power industry. New plants are built to accommodate the growing population’s power needs, requiring more water than ever for power generation and cooling. As freshwater resources continue to dwindle, more plants are turning to reclaimed water.

  • Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.

  • Activated Carbon And Ion Exchange Resins Compared
    Activated Carbon And Ion Exchange Resins Compared

    Andy McClure and Jim Knepper of Jacobi Carbon recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the differences between activated carbon and ion exchange resins as mediums for water purification. The interview covered recent developments such as the lowering of the EPA’s health advisory level for perflourinated compounds and cyanotoxins from algal blooms to the more traditional concerns of taste, odor, disinfection byproducts and TOC reduction.

  • Cuts In Water Usage, Cuts In Utility Bill
    Cuts In Water Usage, Cuts In Utility Bill

    Santa Cruz, California – A small city of about 60,000 people at the northern tip of the Monterey Bay, normally heavily reliant on groundwater and reservoir water sources, is facing a serious water shortage during California’s latest drought years. Santa Cruzian’s are being advised to limit their water usage and not forget about the ongoing drought.

SHS & SHP Sidehill Screens SHS & SHP Sidehill Screens

Simple And Economical Solids Separation
The simplicity of the SHS and SHP Sidehill Screens make them an excellent choice static screening applications. With no motors or moving parts the Sidehill Screens let gravity do the work as effluent flows down the screening media.  The screening elements are fixed, curved, slotted, wedgewire screens oriented horizontally across the direction of flow. The screening surface is positioned at a steeply sloped angle providing an effective means of quickly stripping of liquid and allowing the solids to slide off the bottom of the screen.

Injection Skids Injection Skids

Mazzei injection systems are designed using the Mazzei’s patented technologies to obtain the most efficient mixing and contacting of air, oxygen, ozone or chemicals into a water stream.

Buffered pH Control Buffered pH Control

It’s no easy task to run your water treatment facility as efficiently as possible while still meeting capacity demands and environmental regulations. But, at Praxair we can help. We have extensive experience in using carbon dioxide to reduce pH in alkaline water for the water and wastewater industry. Replacing mineral acids with CO2 for pH reduction offers many benefits. By no longer buying or storing chemicals that can do more harm than good, you are making your site safer while also reducing costs. This improved process can help you manage peak demand and capacity increases, increase plant flexibility, and lessen your impact on the environment. And when you’re supplied by one of the world's largest carbon dioxide suppliers, you can explore this alternative with confidence.

  • 5 Burning Questions On Uranium And Radium Removal
    5 Burning Questions On Uranium And Radium Removal

    High levels of radionuclides (uranium/radium/etc.) in drinking water aren’t very common, but they are very dangerous. If you’ve long dealt with radionuclides, you’re familiar with the treatment requirements — but are you treating as cost effectively as possible?

  • Is Water Shortage The Next Big Short?
    Is Water Shortage The Next Big Short?

    At the end of The Big Short, a postscript stated that one of the story's protagonists, Dr. Michael Burry (played by Christian Bale), was now focused on investing in only one commodity: water. That got my attention.

    Why California's Cannabis Industry Will Lead Water Innovation

    For years, I’ve been standing on my deck in San Francisco, looking south to Silicon Valley for innovation in water efficiency. But I’m starting to realize that I might have been gazing in the wrong direction. Maybe I need to turn around and look north, over the spires of the Golden Gate Bridge, toward the Emerald Triangle in Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties, the hotbed of California’s newly legalized commercial cannabis production.

    Can Innovation Be Achieved With A Tried-And-True Disinfection Technology?

    Since chlorine technology was first used to disinfect drinking water in Jersey City, NJ, in 1908, most waterborne diseases have been eliminated in the U.S. Chlorine is still the most common disinfectant for drinking water and wastewater. Chlorine is also used for disinfection and as a biocide in numerous industries.

    ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?

    There have been many publications lately that claim universal appeal of the ORP sensors and their applicability across the board. This concerns me, because the authors sometimes forget to mention some well-known practical limitations of the method, let alone the realities of water treatment applications potentially influencing the sensor performance.

    Power Plant Water: Wanted Dead And Alive

    Water is the lifeblood of electrical power plants, whether they are water-cooled steam plants or turbine-spinning hydroelectric installations. Regardless of how the facility generates electricity, there is a growing awareness that each power plant is part of its own, unique industrial watershed — drawing water from the environment, altering its contents and temperature, releasing some to the atmosphere as steam, and returning the rest to receiving waters.
