  • Potato Flume Water 1

    This client transports potatoes from their receiving dock to the processing area of the plant in a water flume. This process removes the dirt from the fields. The pH was 6.3 and did not require pH adjustment. The sample was tested with I, H, and K and it was determined that the K was the best product for clarity, reduced dosage and floc size. The samples were treated with 0.13 grams of Floccin-I, ...

  • Potato Flume Water 2

    The facility was paying to have their water hauled off site as a means of disposal. The facility was using an average of 20,000 gallons/day of fresh water to operate the flume system used to transport the potatoes from the dry storage sheds to the processing room. The flume sump would fill up with solids and required weekly cleaning. The settle dirt and organic material created a bad odor and an ...

  • Evaluation of overland flow model for a hillslope using laboratory flume data

    Comprehensive modelling of overland flow requires models for both rill and interrill area overland flow. Evaluation of a physically based mathematical model for simulating overland flow generated on rill and interrill areas of hillslope was done using a data set gathered from a laboratory experimental setup. A rainfall simulator has been constructed together with a 6.50 m × 1.36 m erosion ...

  • A comparison of two infiltration models applied to simulation of overland flow over a two-dimensional flume

    At the hillslope scale, where the rill-interrill configuration plays a significant role, infiltration is one of the major hydrologic processes affecting the generation of overland flow. As such, it is important to achieve a good understanding and accurate modelling of this process. Horton's infiltration has been widely used in many hydrologic models, though it has been occasionally found ...

  • Old mission dam and flume: preliminary findings of new research on the waterworks system of mission San Diego de Alcalá, San Diego County, California.

    The Old Mission Dam and Flume is an historically significant system of water control structures on the San Diego River, San Diego County, California. This system, designed and built from the late 1700s to the early 1800s by Franciscan missionaries and Kumeyaay Indians associated with the Mission, was intended to provide a reliable year-round supply of water to Mission San Diego de Alcalá and to ...

  • Nitrogen Fate in drainage ditches of the coastal plain after dredging

    Received for publication June 14, 2008. Drainage ditches are a key conduit of nitrogen (N) from agricultural fields to surface water. The effect of ditch dredging, a common practice to improve drainage, on the fate of N in ditch effluent is not well understood. This study evaluated the effect of dredging on N transport in drainage ditches of the Delmarva Peninsula. Sediments from two ditches ...

  • Longitudinal dispersion in open channel flow with suspended canopies

    Suspended canopies can cause flow disturbances such as reducing velocities within the canopy, and increasing flow beneath the canopy. Flow modifications by canopies dramatically affect the fate and transport of sediment, nutrients, contaminants, dissolved oxygen, and fauna in aquatic systems. A three-zone model is presented here to predict the longitudinal dispersion coefficient by simplifying ...

  • Effective monitoring improves sewage flow management case study

    SmartScan 50 introduces an effective solution for flow measurement of sewage water in one of Poland's municipal waste water treatment plant. The city of Zblewo, Poland provides waste water treatment services to its inhabitants. The plant sought an ultrasonic measurement solution for monitoring the raw sewage flow during the treatment process. The problems When entering the ...

  • Open Channel Flow - The use of Level sensors for open channel flow measurement

    Open Channel Flow - The use of Level sensors for open channel flow measurement Level sensors from SolidAT are implemented in Open Channel Flow applications. In these types of applications, the level sensor is installed above a special water flow structure and accurately measures level of flowing water or wastewater. The sensor then calculates flow through the structure ...

  • Metalworking reclaim saves $400,000 annually

    The Problem: A Detroit, MI based transmission component supplier was using an extremely large amount of metalworking concentrate. The supplier had 48 independent cutting machines, with a total sump capacity of approximately 13,000 gallons. For these machines, there was an extraordinarily high use rate of coolant product, sometimes reaching as high as 9,000 gallons per week of coolant ...

  • Tomato Processor Pilot Bioreactor

    98% Average Reduction in BOD & TSS A tomato processing facility was required by the city to reduce BOD from 4,000 ppm to 200 ppm. Integrated Engineers proposed a small scale Bioreactor to prove the effectiveness of the activated sludge process on the customer’s wastewater as well as establishing the parameters for a full scale system design. The trailer mounted ...

  • OCF 5.0 open channel flow monitors - monitor infulent at Long Sault WWTP plant

    Greyline Open Channel Flow Monitors were installed at the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Long Sault, Ontario when the SBR plant was originally commissioned in 1995. But after 16 years of continuous service, components for the old models became obsolete. Plant operators Caneau Water and Sewage Inc. decided to replace the instruments and new Greyline OCF 5.0 Open Channel Flow Monitors were installed ...

  • Experimental assessment of Athabasca River cohesive sediment deposition dynamics

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) originating from natural sources, and potentially from the Athabasca Oil Sands development, are of concern for the Athabasca River and Lake Athabasca delta ecosystems. In order to model the transport of fine sediments (and associated PAHs), it is important to describe the sediment dynamics within the river system. Flocs possess different settling ...

  • The role of solution chemistry in the stability and detachment of cohesive kaolinite particles

    The effect of solution chemistry on the behavior of kaolinite in three different situations was investigated: (1) the detachment of kaolinite from glass beads in a fluidized bed, (2) the erosion of kaolinite deposits in a laboratory flume and (3) the determination of the stress-strain rate relationship of concentrated suspensions in a rheometer. The experimental results from these three different ...
