  • Waste Water Treatment Plants

    In 1980, Los Angeles began exploring alternatives to control the H2S concentration in the digester gas produced at the Hyperion Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP), which treats nearly 420 MGD, wastewater generating over 475 tons of raw sludge per day. The digester gas H2S concentration had to be controlled so that the SOx emissions from the on-site combustion of the gas could be kept within ...

  • Waste Water Treatment Plant City of Oakley, UT

    The City of Oakley was very happy with their new MBR facility except for the filter bag sludge dewatering system that was very labor intensive and usually didn’t produce an adequately dewatered sludge. Scott Rogers of Aqua Engineering and Bob Johnson, the Operations Mgr., chose to replace the bag system with a 0.9 meter model DDP belt press system from BDP Industries. The DDP belt press ...

  • Case study - Deodorization at waste water treatment plants

    The presence of microorganisms in wastewater causes a decrease in dissolved oxygen levels due consumption by the organisms’ metabolic processes. The more microorganisms there are, the greater the biological demand for oxygen. When this demand exceeds that which can be provided by the exchange of air, an anaerobic process begins, thus creating a reducing environment that favours the ...

  • Municipal waste water treatment plant case study

    A municipal WWTP in the North of England was experiencing significant problems with accumulations of FOG in the Wetwell at the head of the treatment plant. The FOG would form a solid cap over the well several feet thick. This put considerable strain on the pumping gear, interrupted the performance of the float switches and required regular manual intervention from the staff. High costs were also ...

  • Online Odors Monitoring in Waste Water Treatment Plants

    Odors are very distinct air contaminants as they generate nuisances (see note at the end). The factors playing a role in the determination of odor annoyance are : odor concentration and intensity, frequency, appreciation, duration, synergy and location. Chromatotec proposes an automated solution to well identify the origin and the level of odors. Technology Description We offer a ...

  • From Waste in Anodising Plant to New Chemical Product in Sewage Treatment Plants

    Aluminium containing caustic soda used as a pickling agent in the pre-treatment of aluminium before anodising and aluminium containing sulphuric acids used as electrolytes for the formation of oxide layers in anodising plants can be utilised in municipal sewage treatment plants to reduce phosphates and improve precipitation. From the anodiser's point of view, these products are spent once they ...


  • Microfiltration for treatment of waste filter washwater at water treatment plant

    The North Jersey District Water Supply Commission (Commission) serves about 2 million consumers from its 210 mgd water treatment plant (WTP) in Wanaque, New Jersey, about 25 miles northwest of Manhattan.
