Case study - Heat loss - A problem for wastewater treatment & nitrification
Problem: Operators know aerobic and anaerobic systems need sufficient water temperature to keep microbial populations active and working. Heat loss is detrimental to effluent quality and gas production. Both systems can be negatively affected from low daily and seasonal temperatures. Unfortunately, most operators and engineers have no control over water temperature loss in their tanks and basins.A northern Wisconsin cheese plant was dependent upon their anaerobic digester to reduce COD to a level they could...
How to Choose the Best Wastewater Treatment System for Your Plant
For industrial companies producing wastewater as a byproduct of their process, some type of wastewater treatment system is usually necessary. Failing to properly treat your wastewater can potentially harm the environment, human health, and your process, in addition to causing your facility to incur heavy fines and possible legal action if it is being improperly discharged into a publicly owned treatment works (POTW) or to the environment under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES permit). The...
PeCOD Case Study – Industrial Waste Water
Clean Harbors is an industrial wastewater treatment facility in Guelph, Ontario. The facility utilizes highly refined, chemical precipitation processes, which remove heavy metals, suspended solids, and organics to generate safe effluent for discharge into municipal sewer systems. Wastewater is treated to meet municipal discharge requirements for biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5). Since BOD is a 5-day test, the results cannot be used to continuously monitor organic load. Chemical oxygen demand (COD) is used as a...
Case study: Large package sewage treatment plants with MBR technology in Africa
In 2014 DEVISE ENGINEERING S.A. participated in an International Tender to Design and Build seven (7) advanced MBR Package Sewage Treatment Plants for “A.A.W.S.A” (Addis Ababa Water and Sewage Authority) and won the project over strong competition. The aim was to provide an efficient and cost effective solution for the treatment of sewage originating from the new decentralized condominiums in the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, with the purpose of water reuse for irrigation.DEVISE is building...
Case study: Innovative portable package wastewater treatment plants
DEVISE ENGINEERING S.A. has designed, engineered and is currently producing a new series of State of the Art Portable Sewage Treatment Plants (PSTP), incorporating advanced Ultra-Filtration (MBR) technology.These Plants are used for multiple “emergency” & “short-term” purposes with the ability to re-use the treated effluent. The particular Portable STP can be easily installed in the designated site and if needed, it can be swiftly relocated by standard platform trucks, deployed and be...
