Wastewater Treatment Applications

Archimedes / Screw Pumping

Originally applied for drainage and irrigation, today Archimedes screws / screw pumps are commonly used in sewage treatment plants because they cope well with varying rates of flow and suspended solids.

 
Biological Wastewater Treatment System

Biological wastewater treatment uses microorganisms to break down complex materials present in the wastewater. It can aid with BOD reduction, odor control and more.

 
 
BOD & COD Reduction

Having a safe BOD level in wastewater is essential to producing quality effluent. If the BOD level is too high then the water could be at risk for further contamination, interfering with the treatment process and affecting the end product.

 
Wastewater Clarification and Sedimentation

Wastewater Clarification, or sedimentation, is a common and essential process in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants.

 
 
Wastewater Disinfection

Wastewater disinfection systems prevent the growth of microorganisms, or pathogens, that produce human diseases. Careful measures must be taken when trying to do away with these microorganisms.

 
Dissolved Metals Removal from Wastewater

Industrial wastewaters containing dissolved metals are treated to reduce the metal contaminants to meet discharge requirements and/or achieve the water quality level needed for reuse and recycling.

 
 
Hazardous Waste Treatment

Hazardous wastes are generated as the result of treatment steps performed on industrial wastewaters prior to discharge, or contaminant-containing groundwaters. The treatment process produces a residual waste, including sludge and spent media.

 
Hexavalent Chrome Removal from Wastewater

The US EPA has established standards that require the destruction of chromates prior to discharge to avoid the potential risks of surface and drinking water contamination.

 
 
technologies for Industrial wastewater pretreatment

Industrial wastewater pretreatment is the first step in wastewater treatment. Many industries use water directly or indirectly and produce a wet waste. Water sources can be different and impurities in the water will differ also.

 
Nutrient Removal

Nutrient removal is achieved by reducing the levels of nitrogen and phosphorus levels with advanced wastewater technologies. Higher quality wastewater effluent is the result of this process.

 
 
Primary Wastewater Treatment

Primary wastewater treatment, the second step in the wastewater treatment process, involves the physical separation of suspended solids from the wastewater flow using gravity filters.

 
Secondary Wastewater Treatment

Secondary wastewater treatment is the 2nd stage of wastewater treatment that takes place after the primary treatment process.

 
 
Tertiary Wastewater Treatment

Tertiary treatment is the next wastewater treatment process after secondary treatment. This step removes stubborn contaminants that secondary treatment was not able to clean up.

 
TOC Reduction for Wastewater

Trace organics are a key challenge facing the wastewater industry

 
 

The right treatment technology package for your water needs is dependent on a number of factors, including raw water source, flow rate and effluent requirements.

 
Wastewater Treatment Water Quality Analyzers and Process Control

Keep up with increased regulatory and quality control drivers that require better analytical and control techniques to stay within regulated, permitted and/or control limits. See how...
