  • Redi Clean Treatment Case Studies

    This well is unique in the fact that it is only 9 years old. From the date of construction this well produced heavy amounts of sand. Therefore the engineer on record redesigned the well and installed an 8” inner casing, see the drawing for reference. This well has lost production steadily for several years. During the first week of May 2012 this well drew down to the point of surging. ...

  • Validation of Salt Water Disposal Well Treatment Plants with Handheld Oil in Water Sample Analyzer

    Salt Water Disposal (SWD) well operators often dispose a substantial volume of oil inadvertently when injecting salt water, thereby losing the opportunity to sell the oil on the market and potentially reducing the ability to inject water in the well. Injection facilities are typically operated with minimal instrumentation or system optimization, which means the operators don't know how much, or ...

  • Industrial Wastewater Treatment - Paint/Pigment Dye Industry

    Innovation in Industrial Wastewater Treatment - Sustainable Water Reuse Strategies Applied to the Paint/Pigment Dye Industry Introduction The paint/pigment industry is a large consumer of process and wash water to be used in various water based paint pigment products.

  • Reservoir Management - Online Oil-In-Water Monitor - Case Study

    Background Older generation online oil-in-water (OiW) monitors may suffer from fouling of optics due to scales, soaps, emulsions, sludge, etc., resulting in inaccurate (usually low) concentrations. New generation OiW monitors: Yield more accurate O  iW concentrations Improve accuracy of the OiW measurements, allowing operators to optimize water ...

  • Oil Analysis Helps Water Plant Cut Annual Maintenance - Case study

    The city of Chandler (Ariz.) Municipal Utilities Department (MUD) employs coagulation, sedimentation, active flow control and filtration to produce 60 million gal per day (mgd) of water at its surface water treatment plant. In addition, the system includes 27 wells and 21 booster stations controlled by SCADA. Water distribution is provided through more than 1,200 miles of water main, in excess of ...

  • Water Use in Concrete Production Higher Than Expected - Case Study

    Researchers uncover areas where better management may mitigate high water use Although many environmental impacts of concrete production have been well studied, little research has been dedicated to just how much water it uses. But, a study published in the journal Nature seeks to quantify the impact of concrete production on global water withdrawals, and it makes some dramatic ...

  • Organic matter removal in bio-filters to achieve biologically stable water downstream of the process

    Organic removal contaminants reclamation has increased over the past years as it has many advantages over other treatments. Product water from water treatment plants can be chemically complex resulting in physical and biological changes during transportation in the distribution systems. The general aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of biofilters for reducing the concentration ...

  • Anglo Coal - Case Study

    Acidic mine water treatment without lime South African Coal Estates (SACE) is a division of Anglo Coal and operates the coalmine at Landau Colliery in South Africa. Processing of the coal results in a sulphate-rich effluent. Part of the sulphate is removed with lime precipitation but this produces an effluent that is oversaturated with gypsum. As a result, scaling occurred ...

  • FOG Waste receiving and processing facility design considerations

    Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) wastes and high-strength wastes (HSW) are frequently received at municipal water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) as trucked-in wastes. These wastes offer significant benefits in terms of revenue from tipping fees and feedstock for co-digestion in anaerobic digesters that produce biogas, which can be beneficially used as fuel. The number of treatment plants ...
