Advantages of using Improved Ultrasonic Metering in Water and Wastewater Applications

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

The Covid Pandemic has affected everyone. Water and Wastewater operators and maintenance personnel have an urgent need to improve resource management, increase revenue, and re-use water while meeting ever-increasing regulatory requirements at the same time reducing operational costs.

Clamp-On Ultrasonic flow measurement is a good choice for meeting the requirement. Ultrasonic is quickly becoming the most commonly deployed type of flowmeter. This is due to new developments in the technology that enable the ultrasonic meters to accurately measure very low flow rates from 0.003 ft/sec velocity and very high flow rates 80 ft/sec velocity on pipes that range in size from 0.5” to 120 inches both old and new. With the ability to measure bi-directional flow, pulsating flow and multiple pipes with a single meter FLEXIM can measure everywhere in drinking water production, treatment, and distribution, as well as wastewater collections, treatment, effluent and environmental monitoring. 

Please join FLEXIM's John Van Nostrand for a Webinar illustrating how these technology improvements enable ultrasonic flowmeters to be used in places never dreamed before. Learn how you can accurately measure the flow of liquids non-intrusively through proven clamp-on transit-time correlation technology and how it plays an important role in the water and wastewater operations.

Tuesday, September 1, 2020 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

Making the most of your liquid treatment process requires getting the best performance out of your most important resource – your “bugs” (or Biomass)!  When managing your bugs, you need to know the following:

  1. How much biomass (bugs) are there in the system?
  2. Where are they?
  3. How long are they here?

This eShowcase will discuss some of the most critical process control parameters, like SRT, Wasting (WAS), RAS, F/M, and SVI and what tools and tactics can be utilized to ensure your process remains stable and efficient.  Specific tools include online monitoring for real-time insights and automated systems that can guide decision-making for best results.  Understanding and using these tools and tactics can result in:

  • Improved compliance – BOD, TSS, Ammonia, and Nutrients
  • Decreased OPEX – Reduced energy and sludge disposal costs
  • Stabilized Process – Year-round reliability and reduced stress

The Tale of Two Systems: 2PAD & 6-Pack, Effectively Using biological Hydrolysis to Enable Co-digestion

Tuesday, June 23, 2020 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

Throughout the United States, over 1,200 wastewater treatment plants are equipped with anaerobic digestion to stabilize sewage sludge into biosolids. With rapidly increasing populations, municipalities need to increase the existing capacity of biosolids treatment.

This webinar will present two technologies from SUEZ that alleviate the stress of overloaded digesters. Both the 2PAD and 6-Pack have been developed to easily fit into existing infrastructure, reduce the required hydraulic retention time in the mesophilic digesters and free up volume for additional treatment.

Not only can these technologies enable additional treatment capacity, but they also enable the plant to import organic wastes, such as residential source separated organics; food waste collected from industrial, commercial and institutional sources; and high strength liquid wastes. This webinar will introduce these enabling technologies and their capabilities to convert wastewater treatment plants into renewable energy facilities.

Additionally, attendees will hear first-hand from two facilities that have used SUEZ’s Biological Hydrolysis to maximize their digester utilization and import organic food wastes one through co-location and one through co-digestion. Each guest speaker will provide insight in their vision, plant operations and performance, as well as key considerations when importing external waste sources.

Solving Phosphorus Removal Challenges with Magnetite Ballasted Technology

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - 1:00-1:45 PM ET

Standards for advanced total phosphorus (TP) levels in different types of water bodies continue to evolve, whether from point or nonpoint sources. As a result, many water pollution control plants (WPCP) may have to undergo major upgrades to meet TP discharge limits, some as low as 0.04 mg/l. The CoMag® system from Evoqua Water Technologies is a high-rate clarification unit operation based on chemical coagulation-flocculation which uses particles of magnetite to ballast the inorganic flocs generated. Magnetite is a naturally occurring iron ore (Fe3O4), fully oxidized, completely inert and non-abrasive. With a specific gravity of 5.2 and an affinity to be embedded inside the flocs magnetite significantly increases settling rates. Due to its ferromagnetic properties, magnetite can also be recovered in excess of 99% via rare-earth magnets installed in the waste line.

The innovative application of magnetite has been utilized in the mining industry for decades. Since its introduction in the early 2000s, the CoMag system has gained acceptance in the wastewater industry. To date, there are more than 40 plants that have selected the CoMag system to cost-effectively address their phosphorus and solids removal needs.

Join us to learn how the CoMag system can help municipalities meet stringent phosphorus permits without tertiary filters, and provide process resilience for wet weather flow management and high solids excursions.
