Natural odor control for wastewater treatment processes. Industrial and municipal wastewater treatment generates odors that can be strong, persistent, and a nuisance to employees, residents, businesses, and industries located near the wastewater treatment plant.
Automation can save money, optimise a process and give warning of potential breeches of discharge consent. However, instrument selection is fundamentally important if a control system is to function efficiently. The measurement device must accurately and quickly respond to process variations and it must be reliable in operation if the control system is to function as intended. Designed properly, energy and chemical use can be significantly reduced, saving money and ultimately improving effluent quality.
One of the biggest costs for water-water treatment is energy consumption; the cost of which is likely to escalate with increased demand. Ineffective process control may not only be costly but environmentally impacts though the inefficient use of an un-renewable resource. Furthermore, poor process control in one area may also impinge on neighbouring processes ultimately affecting effluent water quality.
Odor from industries is a growing problem as cities are expanding closer to industrial areas. The production at food processing industries, fish factories, biodiesel plants and the like can create odors that might be a nuisance to the surrounding area. Odor control systems has thus become important to industries located closed to urban areas.
Control of wastewater is increasingly becoming important to avoid potential environmental and increasing legal consequences. Accurate pH, O2, conductivity and turbidity measurements are critical in modern wastewater treatment. METTLER TOLEDO offers reliable, cost-effective solutions to control industrial effluents.
Most food processing facilities currently use a combination of different chemicals for all surface and machine disinfection. They periodically rotate the use of different sanitizers to prevent the harmful microorganisms from building a resistance to their killing properties. Unfortunately facilities are still experiencing pathogen outbreaks. Chlorine dioxide’s unique killing ability does not allow for the build up of resistance or mutation, and therefore eliminates the need for all of the other chemicals....
Wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are subject to large variation in flow and load, not to speak of uncertainties on the composition of the incoming wastewater. On top of that, the activated sludge treatment process, as used by the vast majority of treatment plants, is difficult to control due to the complex behaviour of the biological process. Nevertheless WWTPs are run 24/7, with operators and management challenged to meet ever tightening environmental regulations.
In order to meet the operational demands of...
Aeration Process Introduction: Waste Water Treatment removes impurities and contaminants from a com¬munity`s sewage utilizing a number of different processes and a variety of equipment. One of the processes is the use of surface aerated basins that use aerobic micro-organisms to remove 80 to 90% of organic matter in waste water. Oxygen concentration in the water basins is a critical factor to promote the optimum micro-organism growth rate needed to treat the water in the shortest amount of time. As a result,...
CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide can safely be used for washing fruit and vegetables, seafood, meat, mushrooms and many other foodstuffs. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide destroys bacteria including potentially harmful pathogens such as E.coli, as well as controlling fungi and fungal spores ensuring reduced risk for the consumer and increased shelf life for the produce. Residual chlorine dioxide left on the produce degrades rapidly leaving no harmful residues.
Context & Challenges Globally, the wastewater treatment is the first public health issue. Urban development leads to urbanization near waste water treatment plant and extension of sewerage network. These aspects induce to an augmentation of sulfur compounds (H2S, mercaptans and sulfides) which are very corrosive, odorant and toxic. To monitor this compounds online CHROMATOTEC® offers high meteorological solutions. At the entrance of the waste water plants, where the waste water arrives, strongly smelling...
Excessive algae growth can throw even the best water treatment processes out of balance. Algae can clog intake screens, fluctuate pH levels, increase chlorine demand, and negatively affect the taste and smell of water.
By blocking sunlight within water treatment tanks, you can stop algae growth, reduce chemical usage, and minimize the formation of disinfectant by-products (DBPs). Temperature is better controlled and maintenance associated with algae cleaning is simplified. The results? Better water treatment and...
GE Analytical Instruments offers several Sievers TOC Analyzer models designed specifically to simplify monitoring of drinking water treatment plants. Always knowing the TOC levels throughout a water treatment plant, and improving TOC reduction, can help a plant not only control DBPs, but also implement efficient and potentially cost saving treatment processes.
This section contains applications relevant for compliance, water treatment, drinking water and natural sources.
Collecting, treating and distributing water to consumers and industry, in compliance with quality standards, means a challenging task to water companies. Both private as public water treatment entities have to manage carefully and sustainably their sources, processes and even distribution networks. AppliTek supports them not only with an extended portfolio of analyzers but also with its experience in...
By controlling algae, cyanobacteria and fouling LG Sonic can efficiently reduce taste and odor problems in a treatment plant. The performance of a drinking water treatment plant is consistent with the amount ol contamination in the water. Growth of algae and other fouling in and before a treatment plant can cause various problems within the process. In general, these issues are related with taste or odor of the water. Growth of algae, cyanobacteria and bacteria within the basins of the plant itself, increase the...
The pharmaceutical market is at the center of personal care, serving to protect public health and improve the quality and span of life. This global market requires treatment technologies to disinfect, measure, control and filter process water and wastewater generated from production.
The EPR regulations have replaced the IPPC regulations and are effective from May 2009 for qualifying companies within the industrial sector and October 2009 within the water sector. They will progressively require industry to minimise waste, reduce product loss and implement improved process control. The legislation will require the operator to self monitor processes and discharges, to demonstrate effective control with particular emphasis on EPR compliance and prevention. The regulating Agency will operate a...

A brewery process presents one of the biggest challenges possible to a microbiological control program. Microorganisms are responsible for both the production and the degradation of the product. Microbial control is also critical for production and filling equipment. A brewing environment offers various applications where chlorine dioxide may be employed, like as terminal sanitizing rinse in the CIP systems or sanitizer for pasteurizers or filler head assemblies.
Water is indispensable for the mining industry. Water is both in the process and also generated by the process. Controlling the quality of the water and treating the waste waters for reuse is essential to this industrial market.
