  • Investigation of the performance of single and multi–drop hydraulic structures

    In this paper, the work is divided into two parts. First, the hydraulic performance of single and multi–drop structures is investigated and compared using two approaches. In the first approach, the empirical equations found in the literature are summarised and reanalysed to compare the dissipation of energy of single drop and multi–drop structures. The demarcation condition at which multi–drop ...

  • Anaerobic co-digestion of sewage sludge and primary clarifier skimmings for increased biogas production

    The objective of the study was to identify the impact of co-digesting clarifier skimmings on the overall methane generation from the treatment plant and additional energy value of the increased methane production. Biogas production from co-digesting clarifier skimmings and sewage sludge in pilot-scale fed-batch mesophilic anaerobic digesters has been evaluated. The digester was fed with ...

  • Monroe Parallel Plate Modules increase oils and solids removal in existing API Separator

    Challenge A silicone manufacturing plant was increasing capacity production and needed to increase the processing of the accompanying wastewater stream containing tramp oils and solids. If possible, the plant wanted to increase the efficiency and capacity of two existing 140,000-gallon API Separators to handle the additional wastewater. The plant required that the water be clean enough to ...

  • Case Study: Sandy Balls Leisure Centre: Sewage Treatment Plant

    A customer with a tough application for a Positive Displacement RAS (Return Activated Sludge) Pump was experiencing high maintenance with the existing submersible unit, requiring lifting of the pump every 3-4 weeks, usually due to solids blockage. NOT a pleasant task regularly lifting from raw sewage! Triangle replaced it with a self-priming Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump. A useful feature of the ...

  • The Effectiveness of Using Automated Belt Oil Skimmers as a Method of Well Remediation

     ABSTRACT In many sites across the country, groundwater has been contaminated by petroleum products due to leaky underground tanks or past spills. If the leak has gone unnoticed, a considerable amount of product could exist in an aquifer (underground water reservoir), and may be trapped in the surrounding rock. Remediation can take months or years to complete and is frequently labor ...

  • Oil skimmer pays off for paper mill

    Skip Hogue is maintenance manager at St Joe Container Corporation, a paper mill and converter in College Park, GA that produces about 100 tons of corrugated boxes each day. Hogue noticed excessive oil in the wastewater discharge from boxboard operations. This oil comes from the rolls and bearings on the corrugating machines, and ends up in the plant's drainage system. Drainage water empties into ...

  • The development and application of the hybrid centrifugal - dissolved air flotation system for wastewater treatment

    Abstract Solid/liquid separations are integral part of any wastewater treatment system. Particles heavier than water are commonly separated in sedimentation clarifiers. On the other hand, particles with densities lower than that of water are most often separated with flotation systems. This manuscript describes the development of hybrid centrifugal - dissolved air flotation system. The ...
