  • E-Z Trays selected for Large scale project - Case Study

    A former industrial plant and top Superfund site in Sydney, Australia, had been in operation since the 1930s and contained chlorinated solvent contamination. Because of the size and scope of this project packed towers traditionally would have been the air stripping method of choice, but the client was concerned about the ability of workers having easy access to maintain and clean the units. They ...

  • Santa Cruz Meets THM/DBP Challenge with Unique Air Stripping Process - Case Study

    Summary Santa Cruz has successfully demonstrated an innovative way for the City to meet its water quality goals while using process recycled water as part of its supply source. Using the recycled water had caused concern about reliably meeting the U.S. EPA THM/DBP potable water quality standards in its finished water. The City evaluated various aeration treatment processes and chose an E-Z ...

  • Using Air Strippers for Off-gas Treatment - Case Study

    Two pharmaceutical plants in Puerto Rico used large sequencing batch reactor (SBR) systems to treat their wastewater. The primary treatment was an aerobic bio breakdown of the waste. The were forced to change their treament process because of change in treatment regulations. The new regulations required them to treat off-gas that was coming from the SBRs. They were faced with installing a very ...

  • E-Z Trays at Hard-to-Access Site - Case Study

    E-Z Tray® (U.S. Patent Number 5,518,668) Air Strippers have always been known for their ease of access and cleaning, but for this special site, an old industrial building in Brooklyn, New York, they also had to be installed without the use of any heavy equipment. The site was using a competitor's air stripper on the second floor of an older building and the units had become very ...

  • Removal and recovery of N, P and K from urine via ammonia stripping and precipitations of struvite and struvite-K

    This study investigated the recovery of N, P and K from source-separated urine in laboratory-scale combined processes of air stripping and precipitation. Two operation scenarios were carried out to recover N/P (named partial scenario) and N/P/K (named complete scenario). Most of the nutrients were recovered (>70%) by optimising the operation parameters including the increase of air flow ...

  • Simultaneous regeneration of exhausted zeolite and nitrogen recovery using an air stripping method at alkaline pH

    Ammonium nitrogen recovery using natural zeolite from the permeates of anaerobic membrane bioreactors was investigated with batch and continuous experiments. Regeneration of exhausted zeolite was compared between mechanical shaking and air stripping, and experimental results showed the superiority of air stripping over the shaking. Liquid circulation and air flow rates were optimized in a ...

  • From Wastewater Treatment to Sweet Pineapples

    In wastewater treatment, ammonia that is removed from sewage used to be discharged directly to the atmosphere. Nowadays, studies have identified that ammonia emissions are of major concern to air quality. This has led to a new way of thinking. Sulzer offers modern closed-air-loop systems for wastewater treatment that transform ammonia into a common soil fertilizer. This reuse of a waste product ...

  • Groundwater remediation pump and treat carberry, Manitoba case study

    Executive Summary Two of four underground gasoline tanks were removed from an old service station located in Carberry, Manitoba a number of years after the facility ceased operating. Two tanks were left on site and were used until 1985, when Manitoba Environment was notified that a domestic well in the vicinity of the abandoned site was contaminated with gasoline. The remaining tanks were ...

  • Application of ultrasound and air stripping for the removal of aromatic hydrocarbons from spent sulfidic caustic for use in autotrophic denitrification as an electron donor

    Spent sulfidic caustic (SSC) produced from petroleum industry can be reused to denitrify nitrate-nitrogen via a biological nitrogen removal process as an electron donor for sulfur-based autotrophic denitrification, because it has a large amount of dissolved sulfur. However, SSC has to be refined because it also contains some aromatic hydrocarbons, typically benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene ...

  • Aeration and Stripping

    Aeration in the treatment of water is a process that is used for either of two purposes: either to add oxygen (or possibly another gas) to water (adsorption) or to remove an unwanted gas from water (desorption or stripping). It follows that aeration is most likely to be encountered in the treatment of ground waters. Aeration can be carried out in a variety of ways. The most appropriate ...

  • Analysis and optimization of ammonia stripping using multi-fluid model

    Ammonia recovery from anaerobic digestion (AD) is a notably beneficial process for removing excess nitrogen, producing low cost fertilizer and enhancing odor abatement. A process was developed for nutrients recovery by integrating a simple and effective stripping process with AD system. To design, optimize and scale up this system, multi-fluid model was developed to simulate flow, mass transfer ...

  • Application of air stripping to powdered activated carbon adsorption of geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol

    Removal of odor-causing compounds (OCCs) including geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol (2-MIB), well known to cause the musty and earthy odor in drinking water, was investigated using powdered activated carbon (PAC) adsorption and air stripping processes. Removal by air stripping was mainly affected by aeration flow rates with volumetric mass-transfer rates of 0.002–0.005 min−1. Aeration also proved ...

  • Air pollution from air stripping of industrial VOCs: a mitigating alternative using renewable energy

    Four reaction beds (glass, Plexiglas, concrete and metal) exposed to solar (UV) light and coated with titanium dioxide were used for testing the degradation of Dichloroacetic Acid (DCA) in water, with concentrations of 130 ppmv, 390 ppmv and 650 ppmv. The glass-bed reactor showed the highest photonic efficiency followed by Plexiglas, concrete and metal. The 390-ppmv DCA gave the highest rate of ...

  • 3.5` LANPAC® proven superior for removing PCE from groundwater in packed tower air strippers

    The problem Dry cleaning fluids have contaminated groundwater supplies in all areas of the United States. One of the most common contaminants is PCE (perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene, Cl2C=CCl2). As a suspected carcinogen, PCE must be removed from water to very low levels. The US EPA maximum contaminant level (MCL) for PCE in drinking water is 5 ppb (5 parts per billion, or 5 mg/L). ...
