Water Services, Inc. (WSI) awarded Wastewater Treatment contract from US Air Force for Iraq & Syria
Water Services, Inc. (WSI) awarded Wastewater Treatment contract from US Air Force to supply MBRs (submerged membrane bioreactor) for use in the Middle East region. The MBRs are completely containerized, mobile and can be moved where needed. The effluent produced by the MBRs can be reused with minimal further treatment. The system includes; 1 mm stainless steel screen, equalization tank, aeration tank, sludge tank and an equipment room. The influent is treated using submerged membranes. The membranes are made...
Automatic Sludge Blanket Level Detector
Markland's Detector monitor's solid-liquid interface levels in water & wastewater clarifiers (including lamellas) and settlement tanks, and automates silt/sludge/biosolids removal. It allows operators to program de-sludge pumps to operate only when necessary, to prevent carryover and optimize feed density for enhanced dewatering. These efficiencies in turn reduce wear-and-tear on pumps, downtime for maintenance and ultimately energy use. The slim profile and use of LEDs make it ideal for obstructed/constricted...
2.0 MG Digested Sludge Tank - Albuquerque, NM
The DN Tanks crew applied the architectural paint to the 2.0 MG digested sludge tank in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The tank has a cast-in-place dome roof to allow for an unobstructed interior with a mixing system. Several large openings in the dome accommodate mechanical equipment for the tank.
Sludge Blanket Monitoring Made Easy!
At Partech we understand the need for simple, low cost methods for sludge blanket monitoring in a wide variety of settlement tanks. It its important to have reliable detection in order to de-sludge tanks at the most beneficial time, reducing costs and unnecessary work at a later stage in the cleaning process. A sludge interface that is too high can result in pollution incidents caused by carry-over from a final settlement tank into the final effluent channel. The sludge can also become too thick to extract...
Controlling Sludge in Lamella Clarifiers
This month we are focusing on the control of sludge blanket build up in Lamella Clarifiers. Lamella Clarifiers, also known as Inclined Plate Separators (IPS) are in common use at Waste Water Treatment Sites as small footprint plant settlement units and are often employed in place of conventional settling tanks. Controlling Sludge Blanket Build up Effluent enters the Lamella Clarifier via an inlet pipe, entering the plates through the side openings where the liquids and solids are then separated. The liquid...
