  • Experimental study of the effect of temperature on the flow behaviour of oil-based muds in Niger delta formation

    The behaviour of the drilling fluids under high temperature is extremely important for drilling deep wells. Most commercial oil-base drilling fluid systems have limitations such as reduced rheology and filtration control if the fluid is exposed to higher temperature for prolonged periods of time. Formulating a drilling fluid system that can adequately withstand drilling in a high temperature ...

  • From Pilot Studies to Full Scale Plant

    Natural gas is widely used as a primary energy source and is one of the most efficient fuel source. For this reason, more and more gas is utilized exceeding existent production facilities. Oil and gas companies therefore expand there measures and step behind borders finding and exploit new resources. One area of major interest is the Barents Sea, a remote area far from industry and civilisation. ...

  • Water Treatment Plant: Benefits of Underwater Cameras

    Before fresh water can be made safe for human consumption it must go through a treatment process eliminating bacteria and any other elements deemed unsafe to drink. How does such a process occur and why is it relevant to us? We’ve written about the use of Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles and pipe crawler systems in storm water systems, sanitation pipes, and water storage basins. A ...

  • Primary Drinking Water from Wastewater Effluent: Pilot Test Experience at the Miami Dade South District WWTP

    ABSTRACTThe Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (MDWASD) owns and operates the South District wastewater Treatment Plant in Goulds, Florida. This is a 225 mgd peak flowrate secondary oxygen activated sludge treatment facility that discharges effluent via deep injection wells. Based upon the detection of nitrogen species in the monitoring wells for the deep injection well system, MDWASD entered ...

  • Humanitarian efforts application case studies

    Challenge A leading provider of safe drinking water to Haiti's under served communities through water kiosks had several water quality issues to deal with upon implementing their pilot program of 10 water kiosks. There was discussion of using surface water or deep well bore water, however, both were unsuitable for drinking water purposes due to microbiological and mineral contamination. ...

  • In Search of Ideal Groundwater Treatment

    As surface water supplies become increasingly polluted and difficult to treat, the use of groundwater continues to increase. Every day, more than 77 billion gal of water are withdrawn from aquifers for a variety of uses including human consumption. Worldwide, groundwater makes up 95% of available freshwater, and nearly half of the U.S. population receives all or part of its drinking water from ...

  • State of the art treatment for Arsenic, color, and Hydrogen Sulfide - Case Study

    New Arsenic Regulations How meaningful to the average water customer are µg/l or parts per billion? Not very. How about the word “arsenic”? That will ring some bells as the mystery novel poison-of-choice. But with new, lower EPA arsenic standard of 10 ppb that went into effect Jan. 16, cities with ...

  • Continuous fibres lead to successfuI filter

    An improved design of wound string filter has doubled contaminant holding capacity and avoided the shedding of small fibres bad into the fluid. Tom Shelley investigates Wound string filters are setting new benchmarks for efficiently catching large amounts of dirt, without risk of introducing stray fibres or other contaminants into the fluid stream being filtered. Initially ...

  • Building a filter defense against Zebra and Quagga mussles

    Tiny mussels can create massive problems for intake structures, vaLves, pumps, screens and other water infrastructure around the US. Some filtration systems can provide chemical-free protection against invasive zebra and quagga mussels, but it is vital to understand the problem and develop the right system to avoid being overrun by the alien species. Zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) and their ...

  • The Future of Drinking Water

    Predicted future growth in population numbers and rising sea levels mean demand for drinking water will continue to increase just as the natural availability of freshwater decreases. It is likely that brackish groundwater will be an important source of drinking water in the future, but the current methods used to produce fresh water from this source are expensive in terms of their energy use and ...

  • One process removes arsenic & iron from water in small Utah town

    The Safe Drinking Water Act brought with it tough arsenic compliance standards, forcing cities large and small to comply with a maximum contaminant level of 10 parts per billion (ppb) or face stiff fines and even the potential shutdown of wells. Smaller towns such as Cannonville, Utah, face the most difficult challenge, due to manpower and budget constraints. Cannonville turned to Filtronics, ...

  • Solving waste oil management and removal problems in power generating plants

    If your plant is like most, it is doing a good job of preventing oily water waste and waste oils from escaping into the environment. But at what cost? As labor resources dwindle, operating and maintaining drainage systems, oil separators, and sometimes inadequate oil removal equipment is expensive. Paying higher than needed costs for waste oil disposal, filtration and water treatment due to these ...

  • Vapor Steamers for Tile and Grout Maintenance

    Tile and grout cleaning is undoubtedly a tiresome and time-consuming job. Tiled floors are normally used in areas that experience heavy traffic. As a result, the floors can get quite dull and dirty at the end of the day. Then, there is the issue of grout, a highly porous surface that quickly absorbs dirt and develops stains. Rigorous scrubbing can wear away the grout and spoil its appeal. For ...
