The woven polyester pleated panel design of the Siemens Forty-X™ disc filter provides increased treatment capacity and an ultimate barrier for suspended solids in tertiary treatment processes. Its inside-out filtration design allows for a higher operating headloss capability, ensuring a more sustainable operation in terms of greater throughput, better feed distribution and fewer backwash frequencies. Additional extras include a trash-tolerant filter panel housing designed to prevent entrapment and accumulation of inorganic material, water pressure-assisted seals and wind-safe sliding covers to facilitate accessibility and maintenance.

Easily measure the concentration of sludges or slurries without the reading being affected by color using the Markland Model 502 Suspended Solids Meter. The meter can be used in drinking water plants to measure the concentration of the backwash sludge from sand or membrane filters before it is sent for further processing. In wastewater treatment plants it is used to measure primary, secondary and return activated sludges. The system uses the attenuation of ultrasound to read the concentration.

Coliform detection

Hach’s m-ColiBlue24 Broth simultaneously detects and identifies both total coliforms and Escherichia coli (E. coli). Complete enumeration is accomplished in only 24 hours – no confirmation step is required. Testing with the system requires no fluorescent lamps or color comparators – interpretation of the results is done by visual identification. E. coli colonies are blue, other coliforms are red; total coliforms are the sum of the two. Results are enumerated directly, which is more accurate and precise than statistical-based tests.
