WATER AND WASTEWATER SOLUTIONS FOR THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE INDUSTRY

  • Beware Of Problematic Wastewater Aeration Additives

    Too much of a good thing can create new problems as quickly as it resolves old ones. Maintaining a proper balance of antifoaming agents and polymer additives is critical for sustaining the appropriate air bubble size and distribution needed to achieve dissolved oxygen (DO) requirements for neutralizing high biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) in many industrial and food processing wastewater applications.

  • Distillery Wastewater Byproducts Fuel Sustainability

    Every industry’s onsite wastewater treatment has its unique conditions and challenges. For distilleries, high levels of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), nitrogen, total dissolved solids (TDS), and total suspended solids (TSS) put extra pressure on optimal biological treatment requirements. Here are some techniques that can help distillers put a little extra money in the bank while meeting the challenges of environmental discharge requirements.

    It was named by the infamous explorer Captain John Smith after the Massachusett tribe of Native Americans, then subsequently renamed by King Charles I of England after himself. As Boston grew, the mighty Charles River proved a vital force behind its expansion, and its long and winding history a reflection of the city’s own.

  • Headworks Bio Brings Two Stage IFAS To Milk Factory In Nigeria

    Most of us understand little about Africa and less about Nigeria.  Nigeria is the largest country in Africa in terms of population and economy and ranks high globally on both lists as well.  The population of 184 million makes it the seventh largest in the world and the economy is in the top twenty with a GDP of $500 billion.  It is also a very young country and an increasingly urbanized country - more than half the population is under 14 years old and the same percentage live in cities..

WATER AND WASTEWATER SOLUTIONS FOR THE POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY

  • Achieving Ultrapure Water

    It may sound intimidating, but water that has been treated to “ultrapure” condition is more than necessary in many applications. This highly-cleansed product is a fundamental part of many industrial operations, from the medicine we need to get well to the power we rely on in our daily lives. But, as the name implies, it’s no small task to get average influent to the ultrapure level.

  • Selecting An Envirnomentally Friendly Zero Liquid Discharge System

  • El Paso Electric Should Protect The City’s Water And Let Solar Power Shine

    Resiliency is a hot button word right now. Ten years ago, advocates focused on “adaptation,” or the idea of adapting to the coming effects of climate change. Now the focus is on “resiliency,” the ability to bounce forward — not backward — when something disastrous happens.

  • Selenium Removal Technologies: A Review

    Selenium, a contaminant of concern in industries such as mining, oil refining, and power generation, is removed from wastewater principally through either biological or chemical/physical processes. This article will describe those technologies, several technology providers, and other sources of information.

  • The Basics Of Anti-Friction Pump Bearings

    When we think of pumps, we seem to focus on what material is being pumped, how fast, how efficient and overall reliability. However, what we tend to not think about as much are the little heroes inside the pump that are making it all go around, no pun intended.

  • Church Road Transfer Station - Modular MBR Wastewater Treatment Plant

    The Church Road Transfer Station (CRTS) is located southwest of downtown Parksville, British Columbia in the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN). The facility receives organic waste, solid waste, recyclables, and construction/demolition waste from the general public and commercial haulers. Its expansion under the RDN’s Green Building Policy transformed it into a zero-waste facility.

  • Total Systems Approach To Wastewater Treatment

    The total systems approach (TSA) to wastewater treatment is focused on offering industrial clients a fully integrated wastewater solution — one that includes all pieces of the puzzle, rather than simply a set of uncoordinated components and systems.

  • Beware Of Problematic Wastewater Aeration Additives

    Too much of a good thing can create new problems as quickly as it resolves old ones. Maintaining a proper balance of antifoaming agents and polymer additives is critical for sustaining the appropriate air bubble size and distribution needed to achieve dissolved oxygen (DO) requirements for neutralizing high biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) in many industrial and food processing wastewater applications.

  • Hypochlorite Bleaches Market Continues To Thrive On The Expanding Water Treatment Sector

    An inherent vertical of the global specialty chemicals space, hypochlorite bleaches market has been observing remarkable popularity of late. With rising incidences of infectious illnesses on a global scale, the demand for disinfectants, bleaching, and sanitization products is likely to accelerate. Hypochlorite bleaches are popular disinfection products with the ability to terminate a vast array of disease-causing bacteria, fungi, viruses, and fungi, provided they are used with adequate precautionary measures and adhere to specific usage guidelines.
