  • Use of Soil Filtration and UV Disinfection for Advanced Wastewater Treatment

    Abstract While guidelines exist, currently there are no federal regulations governing treatment requirements for reclaimed water. In their absence, many states have adopted California’s reclaimed water regulations, found under Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations (CCR) as well as the UV Disinfection Guidelines for Water and Water Reuse, published by the National Water Research ...

  • Oily Water Treatment: How to treat using Advanced Electrocoagulation Technology

    Oil....We cook with it. Use it for our skin and paint with it. We use it to fuel & lubricate our cars. Our own bodies even produce it. But something doesn’t quite add up here. Clearly, you wouldn’t cook with motor oil and you wouldn’t put olive oil in your gas tank. So why do we call these different products by the same general name? What oily water treatment is used to ...

Improved Water Quality A good arsenic filtration system ...

  • Advanced phosphorus removal via coagulation, flocculation and microsieve filtration in tertiary treatment

    The applicability of microsieve technology together with coagulation and flocculation for advanced phosphorus removal was investigated. A pilot unit including a microsieve with 10 μm mesh size was operated continuously with secondary effluent from Ruhleben wastewater treatment plant in Berlin. By applying a pretreatment of 0.07–0.09 mmol/L (as metal) coagulant and 1.5–2 mg/L cationic polymer, ...

  • Treatment of leather industrial wastewater via combined advanced oxidation and membrane filtration

    The liming/unhairing operation is among the important processes of the leather industry. It generates large amounts of effluent that are highly loaded with organic hazard wastes. Such effluent is considered one of the most obnoxious materials in the leather industry, causing serious environmental pollution and health risks. The effluent is characterized by high concentrations of the pollution ...

  • A brief history of water filtration/sedimentation

    For millennia the search for ‘pure’ water has been pursued by humans. Criteria for purity have become more complex, more rigid, and more quantitative over time; however, the principles, methods, and material for purifying water have remained remarkably similar from the earliest recorded information of 2000 BC. The scope of this paper is to present a brief history of water ...

  • High-speed filtration using highly porous fiber media for advanced and compact particle removal

    Since its recent introduction to the filtration industry, one of the major concerns about the use of fiber in water treatment has been its applicability for high-rate filtration while minimizing the build-up of headloss. In this study, a compact, modular filter employing non-woven, highly porous polypropylene fiber as filter media was investigated for the treatment of turbid water under high ...

  • Advances in String-Wound Sediment Filter Cartridges

    In the mid-1930s, the first string-wound depth filter cartridge entered the U.S. market. It was made from a woven wire mesh core surrounded by a cotton yarn, which was wound to form the depth filtration medium. The yarn itself was a tightly twisted medium and the major filtration essentially took place at the points of crossings of the yarns- which formed a diamond-shaped pat-tern-rather than ...

  • What are the different types of water filtration systems?

    These days’ people are looking for more and more effective ways to make their lives a little healthier and hygienic than it used to be.

  • Dyed viruses and metal particles for advanced separation studies

    Single nanometer sized particles are poorly retained by conventional water treatment methods and are hardly detectable in water samples. The particles present a separate class of pollutants and their transport and fate cannot be studied by tracking bacteria, turbidity, free dyes or ions. Dyed bacteriophages and gold nanoparticles are two novel tools that facilitate the studies of virus ...
