Case study - Primary Clarifier: Additional pre-treatment capacity


A refinery close to the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) had a major Turn Around. The challenge was to send the waste stream from the cleaning activities during Turn Around completely to the WWTP.

Case Study - Aeration Pond: Supply of emergency standby power

CITGO has an aeration pond that is used in their Waste Water Facility. The aerators must stay running at all times to provide  movement and oxygen and all the aerobic bacteria to breakdown organic sediments in the waste water.

Case study - Secondary Clarifier: Mixed Containment of excess biomass


At a wastewater treatment plant, the Clarifier was producing more sludge than could be processed and dewatered on site.
