  • Solid / gas separation with fabric filters

    A myriad of filter media are utilized today for separation of particulate matter in industrial gas filtration applications. These media range from single use (deposable) to semi-permanent media and include fiber, fabric, ceramic, membrane, metal mesh, and sintered metal media. Semi-permanent media are usually cleanable, either on or off-line, and are primarily intended for long-term (up to ...

  • How to Deal with Drilling Waste

    At present, environmental protection is a basic state policy in China, and it has been a strategic mission and goal for our country to maintain a sustainable development of society, economy and environment. Along with the continuous improvement of environmental laws and the increasing environmental awareness among people, the departments concerned have successively enacted various environmental ...


  • Geotube Dewatering for Lagoon Sludge - Case Study

    Background In many animal waste management schemes it is desirable to separate solids from waste water and/or manures. In cooperation with the Department of Animal and Dairy Science, animal waste specialists from Biological and Agricultural Engineering are field testing a technology new to agriculture, to remove solids from lagoons. The test is currently being conducted at the UGA Dairy ...

  • In Situ Physical/Chemical Treatment for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    The main advantage of in situ treatment is that it allows soil to be treated without being excavated and transported, resulting in potentially significant cost savings. However, in situ treatment generally requires longer time periods, and there is less certainty about the uniformity of treatment because of the variability in soil and aquifer characteristics and because the efficacy of the ...

  • The use of oilfield shale shaker

    Shale shaker for solids control are devices that remove drill cuttings from the drilling fluid while circulating and drilling. There are many different designs and research into the best design is constantly ongoing since drilling fluids solids control is vital in keeping down costs associated with the drilling ...


  • Analytical Solutions for Free-Hydrocarbon Recovery using Skimmer and Dual-Pump Wells

    Accidental release of petroleum hydrocarbons to the subsurface may occur through spills around refineries, leaking pipelines, storage tanks or other sources. If the spill is large, the hydrocarbon liquids may eventually reach a water table and spread laterally in a pancake-like lens. Hydrocarbons that exist as a separate phase are termed light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL). The portion of the ...

  • Processing Wastewater Sludge Using Dewatering Containers

    The relative cost of dewatering equipment varies widely and is directly related to the processing rate. For smaller utilities that need to dewater sludge in batches, dewatering containers are an alternative that can be relatively inexpensive and simple when compared to other technologies on the market. The most common type of dewatering container is based on a roll-off box design, although any ...
