  • Model Testing Optimizes and Verifies Design of a 200-MGD Trench Wet Well for the Sugar Creek WWTP

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities (CMUD) and CDM are currently involved in the design of several treatment plant upgrades at the Sugar Creek wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Charlotte, North Carolina. Implementation of this project, which includes a 200-million-gallonper- day (mgd) screenings and influent pump station with dual self-cleaning trench-type wet wells, will provide CMUD with the ...

  • Wet Dust Collectors: Options and Operations

    A wet dust collector comes in the choice of three variations and these are: gas/liquid contact, gas/liquid separation and gas humidification. The difference between the three is based on how the dust is collected and separated inside the system. A wet dust collector, also known as a wet scrubber, ...

  • Deep Well Measurement

    Pulsar's superior echo processing was proven once again in this difficult very deep Welsh wet well application featuring a 23m 'shot' that needed to follow the level between the heads of two submersible pumps. The reliability and versatility of the advanced echo processing technology in Pulsars non-contact ultrasonic range has been utilised at the SwanseaWasteWater TreatmentWorks, in a 23m deep ...

  • Wet Scrubbing HCL & SiCl4 Fumes

    This two-stage scrubbing system utilizes a jet venturi scrubber in conjunction with a counter current packed tower including entrainment mist eliminator. It was designed to eliminate the HC1 (hydrochloric acid) fumes generated when S1C14 (silicon tetrachioride) comes in contact with moisture cluring processing operations at a zirconium processing tank farrn, and also the remaining smail amount of ...


  • Horizontal Wells - Technology Overview

    Horizontal well technology has been incorporated into many current environmental remediation applications (and associated contaminants), such as in situ bioremediation, air sparging, vacuum extraction, soil flushing, free product recovery, etc. Ac cording to information reviewed, this technology is most applicable to sites with relatively shallow soil and/or groundwater contamination, and can ...

  • Catalytic wet hydrogen peroxide oxidation of a petrochemical wastewater

    Continuous Catalytic Wet Hydrogen Peroxide Oxidation (CWHPO) for the treatment of a petrochemical industry wastewater has been studied on a pilot plant scale process. The installation, based on a catalytic fixed bed reactor (FBR) coupled with a stirred tank reactor (STR), shows an interesting alternative for the intensification of a continuous CWHPO treatment. Agglomerated SBA-15 silica-supported ...

  • Treatment of hydraulic fracturing wastewater by wet air oxidation

    Wastewater produced by hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas production is characterized by high salinity and high chemical oxygen demand (COD). We applied a combination of flocculation and wet air oxidation technology to optimize the reduction of COD in the treatment of hydraulic fracturing wastewater. The experiments used different values of flocculant, coagulant, and oxidizing agent added to ...

  • An Update on the Columbus Wet Weather Management Plan

    ABSTRACTUndergoing a system wide program for a metropolitan area of over 1 million people to address SSOs is a challenge. The same can be said for addressing CSOs throughout a system. Columbus is addressing both at once, creating a particularly daunting challenge. Columbus submitted one large report, the Wet Weather Management Plan (WWMP), to the Ohio EPA on July 1, ...

  • Keep your air clean with Wet Dust Collectors

    Wet dust collectors use liquid — often but not always simple water — to capture and separate dust, mist, fumes, and other particulate matter from a stream of flowing gas — often but not always simple air. Some wet dust collectors spray liquid in a sheet across the stream of gas; others bubble the gas through ...

  • Wet electrostatic precipitators: A preferred technology for emission control

    The basic science behind electrostatic precipitators is as familiar and as simple as static cling. But today, this elemental force has been harnessed to a technology that is helping to remove millions of tons of toxic chemicals from our atmosphere; saving billions of dollars annually in pollution-related physical damage; and averting costly impacts on health and mortality rates for millions of ...

  • Innovative wet electrostatic precipitators assure competitive edge in acid marketplace

    The unsteady global economic recovery continues to subject many core industries to persistent volatility in profits, prices, markets and capital investments. However, some analysts remain optimistic about the global international trade in sulfur in all forms, particularly sulfuric acid. This versatile mineral acid is both the world’s most widely used chemical, and the one with the highest ...

  • Whirl/Wet Dust Collectors Preferred for Pharmaceutical Overspray Collection

    A major multi-national manufacturer of pharmaceuticals and vaccines chose Whirl Wet technology for a new pill coating operation. The aqueous-based sugar solution created heavy loadings of sticky overspray in the 3 micron range. This blinded the existing baghouses after just six batches despite the use of PTFE cartridges – (the best available option for baghouses used in this type of application.) ...
