Wastewater Case Studies and Whitepapers

  1. Rumors, Half-Truths, And Truths About Temperature And pH

    A few months ago I received a call from an angry user who was using one of our differential probes and a controller. Embedded in the probe is a thermistor that measures temperature.

  2. The Benefits Of Reusing Wastewater

    Since water is an essential element in food or beverage operations, reusing it can reduce a business’s water usage ratios, help meet sustainability goals, lower supply risk and contribute to cost savings, making it a top priority for many companies today.

  3. The Ultimate DAF System Design Buyer’s Guide: Part 2

    When you buy a DAF system, you want something that is going to hold up in a harsh environment. You’re going to use the thing for the foreseeable future and the last thing you want is something you have to replace because it didn’t hold up.  DAF System design decisions matter!

  4. Restoration Of Chlorine Scrubbers At EMWD Protects Plant Workers And Neighbors

    In October 2014, Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) selected IMS to clean, inspect, and restore four Bulk Emergency Chlorine Vapor Scrubber Systems.

  5. Denitrification Filters Meet Strict, Varying Nitrogen Limits

    The cities of Littleton and Englewood, CO, just south of Denver, share a wastewater plant — the Littleton/Englewood advanced wastewater treatment (AWT) plant located in Englewood. The 7886 m3/hr (50-mgd) Littleton/Englewood AWT plant serves more than 300,000 residents in the Denver metropolitan area. The facility also receives sewage from 21 districts within a 75 square mile service area. Plant effluent is discharged to the Denver metro area’s major watershed, the South Platte River.

  6. Small Wonder: Compact, Reliable Ozone For Advanced Wastewater Disinfection
    Pinnacle Ozone works with many water professionals in North and South America using a wide spectrum of application methods for water and wastewater treatment. One such company using a novel approach to wastewater treatment is BlueInGreen®, LLC, which is based in Fayetteville, Arkansas. By David Carpenter, Pinnacle Ozone
  7. Meeting New Effluent Quality Requirements With MBRs

    When the California Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) issued a new waste discharge requirement, the Nevada County Sanitary District saw that a major upgrade of the existing WWTP's lagoon system would be required. An MBR system was selected due to its capability of meeting new effluent quality using the existing plant footprint and its competitive operating costs.

  8. Mixers Prevent Buildup And Reduce Wetwell Cleaning Charges

    The City of Reno, NV, has long battled the buildup of fats, oils, and grease in the wetwells of wastewater lift stations in the valleys within this high desert city. Recently, the city set out to address the problem and reduce the associated costs.

  9. WWTP Wanted: Total Package, Self-Starter, Willing To Relocate

    When it comes to providing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) solutions for isolated, low-volume applications, it is true that good things can indeed come in small packages. The execution of membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology in compact self-sufficient arrays — including transportable containerized units — now offers wastewater treatment with enhanced nutrient removal for stand-alone applications and remote points of use.

  10. Maximum Water Reuse, Zero Liquid Discharge — A Power Plant Case Study

    ELCOGAS, established in 1992 with the aim of building and operating a 335 MW Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant as well as the commercialization of its technology.
