  1. Pros And Cons Of Different Types Of Ultrafiltration Technology Configurations

    Ultrafiltration systems can be engineered and designed in several possible combinations based on the application and source water quality. There are different membrane materials, membrane shapes, flow types, and configurations.

  2. Ultrafiltration vs. Microfiltration

    Which process should you choose for your application?

  3. Smart Water Networks And The Choices Ahead

    Many water utilities continue to evaluate the costs and benefits of investing in smart metering to reduce operational costs and help recover revenue from water losses. Smart metering can also provide customers with more granular consumption data to help them protect their property from water damage and better manage their water expenses.

  4. Common-Sense Perspectives On Waste Treatment — With A 'Western' Flair

    I have been in the waste treatment business for some years now, and I am continually surprised with what I see promulgated by the people that do this every day and should know better. Out West (Texas, actually), we see life as a more or less continual struggle with all kinds of adversaries. Collectively we call them varmints, and they are ever present as we go about our daily duties. There is much to be learned from folklore in establishing a common-sense perspective, and the convergence of Texan culture and waste treatment technology (and even water treatment) are cases in point.

  5. EPA Reveals The Key To Clean Water

    Water and wastewater treatment plant operators may not always love regulators, but they should love what the U.S. EPA water chief had to say about them. Speaking at the “BusinessH20 Water Innovation Summit” in September, the EPA’s assistant administrator for water, Dave Ross, referred to those who clean our country’s drinking water and wastewater as “silent, everyday unsung heroes.” While not as celebrated as others who dedicate themselves to public service, such as police officers, firefighters, and teachers, they are every bit as essential — if not more so.

  6. Moneyball For Water And Wastewater Treatment

    The movie and sports term has infiltrated the business world and has important implications for the water/wastewater industry.

  7. Common Problems Of Ultrafiltration System Operations

    One facet of technological advancement is attempting to mitigate the more glaring issues that consistently crop up due to the nature of a system process. Of course, even with decades of improvement nothing is infallible. In this article, we will discuss the common issues that can occur using UF filtration systems.

  8. Urgency Needed In Advancing Water Infrastructure Projects

    How frightening is it to imagine a day without adequate water supply? Or, a time when drinking water is no longer safe?

  9. How To Choose A UF Water Treatment System For Your Facility

    Ultrafiltration (UF) water treatment systems have many possible combinations between the types of membrane configurations, flow patterns, aeration, and submergence. Each design consideration for a UF system has its own benefits that would work for a particular industrial/commercial application, and disadvantages that would work against it.

  10. An Improved Approach To Water Quality

    Fine bubble diffusers in water treatment operations can be problematic. In addition to their tendency for fouling and gasket failure, they can foster less-than-ideal bromate conditions. Using sidestream injection technology for delivering ozone, by comparison, offers a significant reduction in bromate formation while allowing easy access to key process components for maintenance and eliminating the need for contactor shutdowns.
