  • VSEP beats decanter centrifuge at solids removal from ethanol biomass

    As the world searches for fuel alternatives to gasoline, a clear candidate to lead the way has emerged, Ethanol. Ethanol production for use as a fuel additive (or to be used directly as a fuel source) has grown in popularity due to governmental regulations and in some cases economic incentives. Both regulations and incentives seem to be based on environmental concerns as well as a desire to ...

  • Common challenges relative to the use of Decanter Centrifuges for barite recovery in the oil & gas industry

    When centrifuges are properly deployed, they can have dramatic effects on drilling performance. In fact, without them, many of the advances made in drilling would not have been considered achievable. Classically, we believe that centrifuges can achieve two common goals: Reduce the content of drilled fines, specifically colloidal solids, and Perform barite recovery in order to reduce ...

  • Biochemical, morphological, and yield responses of lady's finger plants to varying ratios of palm oil mill waste (decanter cake) application as a bio-

    Background:Decanter cake is produced in large amounts, and its disposal is a major concern in palm-producing countries. Growth morphology and biochemical responses of lady's finger (Abelmoschus esculentus) plants grown on soil amended with different ratios of decanter cake (0%, 10%, 20%, and 30%) were investigated. Results:The soil pH decreased (unamended soil), whereas the electrical ...

  • Environmentally friendly sequencing batch reactor design keeps noise, energy & capital costs low

    Perry Township in Fayette County, Pennsylvania is one of the first SBR plants to utilize a surface mounted process aerator/mixer, which is a significant improvement over the traditional diffused air network designs. The new layout offers substantial capital investment savings as well as significant reductions in noise, operations/ maintenance, and energy consumption. KLH Engineers, Inc., ...

  • Efficiency of conventional drinking water treatment process in the removal of endosulfan, ethylenethiourea, and 1,2,4-triazole

    The aim of this work was to study the removal of three pesticides using conventional drinking water treatment (DWT) processes. These methods are the most used in Brazil, and include coagulation–flocculation of water. The pesticides/metabolites evaluated were: endosulfan, ethylenethiourea (ETU), and 1,2,4-triazole. The laboratory tests were carried out in triplicate using the jar test. ...

  • Kimre Inc. LIQUI-NOMIX oil-water separators

    Liquid - liquid mixtures of contaminant oils (or organic solvents) in water (or aqueous solvents) can be separated economically and efficiently with gravity settlers or decanters. To achieve high efficiency separations, the settling unit must include a coalescing stage for removal of small droplets of oil. Kimre Inc.'s LIQUI-NOMIX coalescers provide high efficiency polishing of liquid streams and ...

  • Salmon Processor

    The water is from a salmon processor where they are using an Andritz 3 phase decanter centrifuge to recover the oil in the salmon parts after packaging the salmon for human consumption. The oil is very valuable for use in the health food industry. The Andritz centrifuge recovers 90% of the oil from the wastestream, but leaves a residual oil emulsion that needs to be treated prior to discharge to ...

  • Pollution reduction and biodegradability index improvement of tannery effluents

    Al2 (SO4)3, 18H2O, FeCl3 and Ca (OH)2 were used for the treatment of tannery wastewaters. The influences of pH and coagulant dosages were studied. Conditions were optimised according to the pollutant removal efficiencies, the volume of decanted sludge and the biodegradability index improvement. The results indicate that 67-71% of total COD, 76-92% of color and 79-97% of chromium can be removed ...
