  • Freytech oil water separators in car wash applications

    Knowing that oil can get into the reclaim water, David F. Roberts, the President of Freytech Inc., recommends the use of an enhanced coalescing oil water separator. “Even trace amounts of oil in the recycled water can diminish the quality of the wash,” he said. “An ‘oil trap’ is not enough since it is simply a tank with baffled walls which does trap some of the oil ...

  • 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 ...

  • “We continue to be stunned at how rapidly the ocean is warming.”

    Oceans have been absorbing more of global warming’s heat and energy than would normally be expected, helping to slow rates of warming on land. But how long will that last? Probing a blue abyss can be an abysmal recipe for the blues. For every 10 joules of energy that our greenhouse gas pollution traps here on Earth, about 9 of them end up in an ocean. ...

  • How to Save with Cooling Tower Credits

    Cooling towers dissipate heat from recirculating water used to cool chillers, air conditioners, or other process equipment to the ambient air. Heat is rejected to the environment from cooling towers through the process of evaporation. Therefore, by design, cooling towers use significant amounts of water. The thermal efficiency and longevity of the cooling tower and equipment depend on the proper ...

  • Balancing growth and conservation - Precast concrete manholes become part of the stormwater solution

    When American Fork, Utah, decided to approve construction of a 175-acre commercial center, the city engineers had to consider the environmental effect it would have on a 45-acre wetland right next door. Under the EPA´s Phase II Storm Water Rules, adapted in late 1999, almost any city large enough to require a storm sewer system must balance growth with the environmental impacts of ...

  • A perfect pair: SBR designs & advanced aeration technology

    Conventional sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) that utilize diffused-air networks have existed in the U.S. for about three decades now. The reliability of controls and instrumentation has significantly improved in the last 10 to 15 years, and as a result, SBR plant designs are becoming more widely accepted. The attractiveness of their compact layout and ease of operation has also helped increase ...

  • The Power to Separate

    Gravity separators are effective and economical tools used to process wastewater and stormwater by removing pollutants such as sediment, hydrocarbons and debris through the process of sedimentation or flotation. Most separators have few or no moving parts, are easy to maintain and have a successful history of use in many different industrial, commercial and residential applications. Specifying ...

  • The natural way to clean wastewater

    John Todd founded Ocean Arks International in the 1980s, where he started to experiment with processes that mimic natural ways to purify wastewater. He built a greenhouse and ran sewage through a series of tanks, with plants suspended in the flowing waters, and constructed marshes made of sand and gravel. No chemicals were added, but plenty of aquatic creatures from snails to small fish were ...
