  • Hach releases low-maintenance sludge blanket for level monitoring

    Hach’s SONATAX sc optimizes sludge extraction, manages recirculation, and warns of potential solids washouts that may result in costly permit violations. The SONATAX sc probe stays clean by using a magnetic coupled wiper that wipes the face of the probe. The wiper functions with a magnetic connection and without a shaft so there are no o-rings to replace and no need to open the probe housing. ...

  • French WWTP are using PCME VIEW 370 for sludge dryer particulate monitoring

    The amount of dust produced in the dryer and later processing plant is affected by the type of dryer installed. As sewage sludge dust has a similar range of figures to wood flour, there is the potential for a dust explosion to occur in the main dryer, dust collection and handling plant, pelletiser and final product discharge plant. The material can also self heat leading to ignition and a slow ...

  • Thicker sludge saves time and money

    Recent improvements in pump technology prompted Severn Trent Water (STW) to initiate a de-sludging trial to reduce costs and energy consumption by producing thicker sludge in the Primary Settlement Tank (PST). Advanced monitoring instrumentation from HACH LANGE played a key role in the trial which, nine months after it began, has been heralded a success. STW's Mark Bryan summarises the objective ...


  • MACT standards for sewage sludge incinerators

    EPA announced in the October 14 Federal Register proposed rulemaking to cut emissions of mercury, particle pollution and other harmful pollutants from sewage sludge incinerators (SSIs). According to EPA, SSIs represent the sixth-largest source of mercury air emissions in the U.S. The proposed standards would apply to both multiple-hearth and fluidized bed incinerators. Units incinerating sewage ...

  • Lab Scale Activated Sludge Reactors - EBS - Wastewater Training and Consulting

    Lab scale activated sludge reactors have been employed by those in academia who study wastewater systems for decades to analyze the effects of selected variables on the treatment of many unique waste streams. Their purpose is to mimic the conditions found in full scale systems as closely as is possible in a system that can be confined to a typical laboratory bench top. The advantage of lab scale ...

  • Tensar Enables Extreme Fluid Waste Stabilisation at Knostrop Sludge Lagoon

    To cap a 120,000sq.m lagoon containing ultra-soft sludge at Knostrop Waste Water Treatment Works (WWTW) adjacent to the A1M near Leeds, Yorkshire Water turned to Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) to devise a bespoke solution. MMB based their solution on experience gained from an earlier scheme on a smaller sludge lagoon, at Dowley Gap near Bingley in Yorkshire. In this project, MMB collaborated with ...
