  • Moving difficult-to-handle bulk materials with flexible screw conveyors

    Flexible screw conveyor systems can be engineered to transport bulk materials that tend to pack, cake, smear, break apart or fluidize, and can prevent the separation of blended products. Flexible screw conveyors (Fig. 1) are suitable for most bulk materials, from sub-micron powders to large pellets, both free-flowing and non-free flowing. They are capable of conveying bulk materials at any angle ...

  • CORK, Ireland: INNODRY 2E®–Complete sludge treatment solution including dewatering, drying and granulate storage

    Cork WWP (Ireland) was designed in 2000. The specifications did require a complete sludge treatment solution including dewatering, drying and granulate storage. The system was to take maximum advantage of the biogas produced by digesters as well as any surplus heat used for the heating of the digesters. The drying equipment had to be flexible in order to cover the varying production rates and, at ...

  • How LEDs Will Change Water Purification

    Ultraviolet (UV) light has been naturally purifying water for centuries. With clear skies, our sun can inactivate water-based pathogens in six hours minimum. Cloudy skies or unclear water causes imperfect conditions. These conditions allow for bacteria to grow and make natural water sources unsafe to use. Fortunately, we have developed several types of water disinfection, ranging from chemicals ...

  • Enhancing resilience in urban water systems for future cities

    In future cities, urban water systems (UWSs) should be designed not only for safe provision of services but should also be resilient to emerging or unexpected threats that lead to catastrophic system failure impacts and consequences. Resilience can potentially be built into UWSs by implementing a range of strategies, for example by embedding redundancy and flexibility in system design, or by ...
