In the water and wastewater segment, operations tend to be risk adverse. This is because there is little, if any, room for mistakes, says BSC National Accounts Manager Wayne D’Souza. “It’s a segment where all eyes are on it. A mistake could mean the pollution of rivers, or oceans. Or it could mean that the … Continue reading BSC continues to build customer confidence
Tertiary treatment is the final stage of the cleaning process undertaken at a wastewater treatment plant, improving effluent quality before it is reused, recycled or discharged into the environment. This stage of treatment removes remaining inorganic compounds, organics, turbidity, nitrogen, phosphorus, metals, and pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and parasites. The process usually involves physicochemical … Continue reading Getting the most out of belts and drives in tertiary wastewater treatment
Secondary wastewater treatment removes soluble organic matter and suspended solids that remain following primary treatment. This stage involves biological processes aeration for the decomposition of solids and the use of chlorine to disinfect the liquid. During different stages of secondary treatment, the level of oxygen in the wastewater is altered to create aerobic and anaerobic … Continue reading Bearing up in corrosive wastewater conditions: Schaeffler’s FAG Black Series and Split SRB
The initial stage of wastewater treatment – the primary treatment stage – involves the removal of solid material from water by the processes of screening, comminution, grit removal, and sedimentation. Clarifiers, or settling tanks, enable the removal of the solids through sedimentation. While sewage flows through the tanks, the solids gradually sink to the bottom. … Continue reading Robust bearings for primary wastewater treatment
The federal government has announced $6.2 million in funding to Logan City Council (LCC) to develop the Loganholme Wastewater Treatment Plant Gasification Facility at Loganholme in Queensland. Once complete, the $17.28 million project will be the first time gasification has been incorporated into a wastewater treatment plant in Australia. The facility will help to reduce … Continue reading Federal government funds first wastewater plant gasification project
Researchers have developed a new way of tracking sewage sludge flows during thermal treatment that could help engineers design better wastewater treatment plants and boost production of biogas. Researchers at RMIT University demonstrated how the flow behaviour of sludge can be used as a tool to gauge how quickly organic matter is dissolving at high … Continue reading RMIT study demonstrates new wastewater treatment tracking
The rugged ST100 Digester gas flow meter provides accurate, safe and compliant measurement. Engineers and operators responsible for accurately measuring gas production from digester tanks at municipal or industrial wastewater treatment operations can depend on the rugged ST100 series thermal flow meter from Fluid Components International to provide precision mass flow measurement. Digester waste gas … Continue reading Digester gas flow meter provides accurate and compliant measurement
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission has selected Emerson as the design-build contractor for an automation project to modernise its Southeast Treatment Plant. Built in 1952, the Southeast Treatment Plant is the city’s largest wastewater facility, responsible for treating 57 million gallons of wastewater per day. During heavy rains, it has the capacity to treat … Continue reading Emerson win wastewater treatment plant contract
