Fresh water factory’s filter plant under investigation Delfland’s Water Authority is developing a fresh water factory to improve the bathing water quality of the Krabbenplas, a local water body. Therefore tertiary ozone treatment in combination with continuous sand filtration is projected at wastewater treatment plant De Groote Lucht near Vlaardingen, the Netherlands. The existing continuous sand filter plant, with a design capacity of 1 m3 per second, built in 1998, will be refurbished to meet the present requirements for nitrogen and phosphorus. We are now executing a full inspection of all filter components to upgrade the plant and guarantee operations
Dashboard of Sand-Cycle
Successfully refurbishment water utility’s assets in Wales Brightwork Products successfully completed the refurbishment of the tertiary filter plant at the Whitchurch sewage treatment works in Wales, UK. The filter plant, with a capacity of 7,000 m3 per day, operated by Welsh Water, has been equipped with new internals and is consistently monitored using the Sand-Cycle remote dashboards. After commissioning early September this year, the filter plant has been operated continuously 24/7 for over three months, achieving excellent filtration results. “We are finally using these assets to its full capabilities, after we almost lost confidence in the technology”, one of the client’s
Micropollutant removal at Stengarden wastewater
IVL published results of full-scale trials for micropollutant removal at Stengarden wastewater plant. The Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL Svenska Miljöinstitutet recently published the results of extensive trials at a full scale tertiary DynaSand filter plant at Stengarden wastewater plant, operated by Simrishamns kommun in South-East Sweden. The research was a joined effort by IVL, Simrishamn Kommun, Xylem Inc., Nordic Water Products and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The plant consists of both sand and granular activated carbon filtration and focuses upon the removal of pharmaceuticals. We are proud that all filters have been successfully monitored by our Sand-Cycle technology. According to the research team: ‘’Sand-Cycle generates
