  • Clarifier maintenance

    Clarifiers are expensive, to buy or repair, and their downtime can be costly in fines imposed by regulatory agencies and in community ill will. Regular maintenance, an annual inspection of the mechanism and an occasional touchup of the paint or coating system are simple and inexpensive proactive steps that will usually prevent most problems. Three components of all clarifiers require maintenance: ...

  • Future-oriented further developments: wastewater heat utilization plants with a return on investment (ROI) of 2 - 6 years

    Sewage is dirty and stinks. Out of sniffing distance – out of mind. Up until the 1980s sewage was taboo and not given the attention it deserves. One cold winter morning in 1988, 23 years ago, Urs Studer stopped beside a steaming manhole cover and wondered how such a source of heat could go untapped. Ever since he has been dedicating himself intensively to the recycling of sewage heat. At ...

  • How to treat radioactive NORM sludge with VacuDry

    NORM doesn’t sound like a big thing. But Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material might let the alarm bells ring. Everyone has heard of “radioactive material” and that sounds dangerous. However, most of this material is trapped deep in the ground beneath our feet. From there it reaches the surface, for example via the water cycle. Another possible pathway for NORM to reach the ...

  • Innovation risk slows offshore wind foundation development

    As offshore wind technology develops ever more gigantic machines further from shore into deeper waters, it is common wisdom that new foundation technologies are needed. But are they? Monopile, and some jacket foundations, still dominate the offshore wind market in commercial operation. Prototype floating foundations are performing well in demo or pilot projects, but scaling up is only ...
