These are proven wastewater and water treatment technologies that utilize magnetite ballast to enhance capacity, performance, stability and control — while minimizing footprint and capital costs.
The Chesapeake Bay is a beautiful body of water, but is under a great deal of stress. Pollutants, among other factors, are threatening its livelihood.
In 2005, Elkton, Maryland, found itself out of compliance with the new, lower nutrient level removal requirements for wastewater treatment effluent. Town leaders needed a solution to upgrade their existing facility that was already at capacity.
The small town of Folkston, Georgia needed to expand its wastewater treatment facility and improve its effluent to meet state ammonia regulations.
The Khon Kaen Brewery was in the process of doubling their production. With the increase in the amount of wastewater they needed to build a state of the art wastewater treatment plant.
The OMNIFLO Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) is a fill-and-draw, non-steady state activated sludge process. In a single reactor basin, the SBR accomplishes equalization, aeration and clarification in a timed sequence.
Located on the banks of the Wabash River is Peru, Indiana. This town of nearly 16,000 needed to upgrade its wastewater treatment facilities to reduce its operation costs and expand capacity to promote economic growth.
Today’s rectangular clarifiers are a vast improvement over those introduced three quarters of a century ago. They have significantly improved service life, while lowering maintenance costs, and reducing operator attention.
The Rim-Flo clarfier will maximize the flow capacity, eliminate short circuiting, produce acceptable effluent suspended solids, and minimize space requirements.
There is too much phosphorous and nitrogen in Chesapeake Bay. 20% of this pollution is caused by wastewater treatment plants.
Kapstone Paper Company is a large paper manufacturer in Charleston, S.C. The mill relies on Rim-Flo Tow-Bro Clarifiers to treat its wastewater effluent from the manufacturing process.
Today, water and wastewater treatment systems are complex. Multiple unit processes must work in harmony to achieve increasingly more challenging treatment objectives. Siemens can help through an approach called Totally Integrated Water Systems.
In Gwinnett Co., GA the Yellow River/Sweetwater Creek treatment facility upgraded their existing rectangular clarifiers to the Trans-Flo technology. The existing clarifiers were not performing well, resulting in high effluent suspended solids.
VLR Systems utilize a vertical loop based design with looped reactors in series that allows DO stratification. As such, it is suited for simultaneous nitrification/denitrification; biological phosphorus removal and storm water treatment.
