A manufacturer of air craft components generates a free and emulsified oily wastewater that results from their machining, milling, cutting and other operations.
Presently, they are using skimmers and dissolved air flotation to remove oil from the water.
A backwashable depth filter process removes and destroys these microorganisms with great efficiency.
Tertiary Filtration Piloting conducted at two different WWTPs demonstrate improved performance of large anthracite media compared to dual and single sand media filtration.
As part of Westbrook Factory Stores' commitment to a clean and safe environment, an advanced ZenoGem® on-site wastewater treatment and reclamation system has been installed.
When the Nashville, Tenn., Metropolitan Government needed a cost-effective solution to remove floatables from their the combined sewer overflow (CSO) system, they selected the patented Netting TrashTrap system supplied by Fresh Creek Technologies, Inc.
A three-year test of ozone and direct filtration so convinced the Altoona City Authority (ACA) of its merits that the central Pennsylvania water authority is now installing the technology at six new treatment plants and will retrofit another by 1999.

Granular activated carbon (GAC) has been used in the water and wastewater industries to reduce taste, odors and dissolved organic compounds. GAC filter media in potable water treatment plants serve a dual purpose: filtration and adsorption. This article will focus on potential problems with bacteria in the application of GAC at a potable water treatment plant.
GAC filter media is widely used for filtration and absorption, but potential problems with bacteria in GAC's application need to be explored
Batch system provides solution to the ever-increasing influx of wastewater and more stringent limits in Lenoir, North Carolina.The City of Lenoir, North Carolina, has recently completed an expansion of its Gunpowder Creek Water Reclamation Facility (WRF), that included the conversion of the four existing process treatment tanks to a four basin sequencing batch reactor (SBR) facility. The plant, owned and operated by the City, was originally constructed during 1976 as a 1.0 million gallon per day (MGD) dual-train contact stabilization wastewater treatment plant.
These systems are a potential alternative for domestic sewage disposal at locations where the evapotranspiration rate exceeds precipitation and wastewater inflows.
Many filtration products are available. Asking the correct questions is important in obtaining an optimum product for the desired application.
