Heathrow Airport Water Services Department trialled and installed Xylem's latest Flygt wastewater pumping system in an effort to solve chronic clogging issues at one of the airport's wastewater pumping stations. As well as delivering consistently clog-free pumping, the system also reduced energy consumption by 53% at the pumping station.
Emerson Process Management is replacing an outdated SCADA system and remote terminal units (RTUs) used throughout Hampton Roads Sanitation District's (HRSD) vast wastewater collection system.
An upgrade by Richmond Valley Council of its Casino sewage treatment plant (STP) has paid immediate dividends by withstanding the fury of June's storms and flooding without suffering any polluting spills or odours.
ACTI-Mag is a concentrated, stabilised suspension of magnesium oxide. It is particularly effective for neutralisation and heavy metal capture in industrial wastewater treatment plants, municipal wastewater treatment plants, flue gas treatment (sulfur dioxide, chloride removal), sugar and chemical processing.
PROTECTA-Mag is a concentrated, controlled-viscosity, stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide. It prevents corrosion by raising manhole surface pH, thus inhibiting the formation of acid-producing bacteria.
The GHSVSD+ vacuum pump is a dry pump that does not require any sealing water. It features Atlas Copco's latest variable speed technology, providing the ability to match the vacuum pump's speed to the demand of the sewerage system.
The SX Series Vacuum Pumps are operated by compressed air, offering an innovative solution for transferring solids and abrasive materials. The range's ability to handle solids of up to 80% of the pump's inlet/outlet diameter, with transfer distances of up to 1000 m on larger units, makes it a smart solution for difficult material transfer.
The portable Cerlic MultiTracker has helped busy plant operators greatly reduce their daily lab work by providing fast and repeatable measurements for MLSS/RAS/WAS/sludge blanket profile and dissolved oxygen, without having to step into the lab.
Veolia has been awarded a contract to design and build a wastewater treatment system integrated into a greenfield oleochemical production plant in Indonesia.
"If you're not processing your wastewater and getting all the energy you can out of it, it's a waste and you're losing out," says Wiley Process Engineer Heath Barker. In this article, he talks about the latest trends in covered anaerobic lagoon (CAL) systems and how they need to be nurtured and optimised to achieve maximum benefits.
