Variable Wastewater Flows No Match For Fixed-Film Treatment System Variable Wastewater Flows No Match For Fixed-Film Treatment System

Fed up with a wastewater treatment system poorly equipped to deal with variable flow conditions, one retreat and camp facility thought FAST® and found a more effective and operator-friendly solution.

AccuFAS Aeration Pattern AccuFAS Aeration Pattern

The Brentwood-engineered AccuFAS Submerged Fixed-Film system adds a fixed-growth surface for biomass to provide enhanced biological treatment and increase capacity for municipal and industrial wastewater. Composed of Brentwood’s structured-sheet, fixed-film media, AccuFAS was developed to optimize airflow and mixing while maximizing contact between the waste stream and biomass.

LAGOON MASTER™ Sludge Activating Aerator LAGOON MASTER™ Sludge Activating Aerator

Recreational ponds, wastewater lagoons, fish grow-out ponds and small, shallow lakes have always exhibited the problem of organic matter collecting on the bottom and eventually becoming polluted. Wastewater lagoons are especially fraught with problems because their purpose is to clean the wastewater to the point that it can be released back into the environment. Over the years many different things have been attempted to assist in degrading the organic matter that builds up in the “sludge” on the bottom of these water bodies.

Sludge Sucker Sludge Sucker

The Sludge Sucker™ unit is a cable-driven sludge removal mechanism that provides cost-effective and efficient removal of lightweight sludges, such as alum or ferric hydroxide, or light iron and manganese precipitates from rectangular settling basins.

Granular Activated Carbon Pressure Contactors Granular Activated Carbon Pressure Contactors

WesTech granular activated carbon (GAC) pressure contactors are an effective means for removal of various-molecular-weight contaminants from aqueous solutions. They are especially suited for the removal of dissolved organic compounds responsible for poor taste and odor in drinking water, as well as removal of a variety of contaminants that can be found in industrial and municipal waters.

BIOSOLIDS CASE STUDIES

  • BioCon®: A Class A Solution

    The Picnic Point Wastewater Treatment Facility was faced with reaching their plant processing capacity. The plant was sending its biosolids to be incinerated and part of this challenge was to find a way to manage the biosolids produced by this facility. Hauling and disposing of this sludge was difficult and becoming expensive. It was desirable to have a Class A biosolid to alleviate this concern and be more environmentally conscious.

  • SRT Solar Dryer Uses The Sun To Reliably Produce Biosolids

    A water reclamation facility needed to improve their biosolids handling process in their planned expansion. The solution needed to reduce sludge volume, produce reusable material, be simple to maintain, and provide cost effective operation.

  • Water Supply Needs At Odds With Regional Demands To Lower Power Use

    The shoreline of the Red Sea is a dazzling destination for tourists and locals to experience the beach and enjoy marine activities. In Egypt, the shoreline sprawls from the Suez Canal in the north, down to the southern part of the country bordering Sudan.
