An updated wastewater treatment plant called Industrial Wastewater Treatment Facility Phase 1 is nearing completion for the Port of Sunnyside in Sunnyside, Wash. Among the facilities designed by Earth Tech's Bellevue, Wash., office are two 1.5 million gallon pre-stressed concrete Sequencing Batch Reactors, or SBRs. These open-top tanks from DYK allow aeration and clarification to take place sequentially in the same tank. The main advantages of SBRs are their flexibility and efficiency.

GTI's insulated floating cover systems control odor in wastewater treatment lagoons, sludge ponds, aeration basins and flow equalization tanks. Its floating covers also are insulated to reduce heat loss and control algae by blocking sunlight. These durable, UV protected covers can be installed quickly without disrupting plant operations and are easy to maintain while in service. These floating covers are safe and strong enough to safely support foot traffic, light vehicles and snow loads. For anaerobic digesters, they're gas-tight to capture odorous biogas.

CPVC products

Corzan™ Industrial Systems – comprised of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) pipe, sheet, duct, fittings, valves and tanks – are resistant to highly corrosive fluids in a wide range of environments. By replacing conventional metallic systems with CPVC, engineers can extend system service life and reduce maintenance, while minimizing process life cycle costs. CPVC is inert to most mineral acids, bases, salts and aliphatic hydrocarbons and compares favorably to other non-metals in these chemical environments. The material provides exceptional mechanical strength, flame spread and smoke performance characteristics. Corzan CPVC is available in a complete line of process components, including pipe and fittings, sheet, valves, pumps, strainers, filters, ducting, storage tanks, fume scrubbers, tower packing and process vessels.

A new mixing and flushing unit for cleaning retention basins has been introduced by ITT Flygt. Designated as the Flygt Hydroejector, the unit acts as a mixer when water levels are high, keeping solids in suspension so they can be readily pumped away. When basin water levels are low, the unit automatically becomes a flushing device, with water discharged through the ejector pipe in a powerful jet which removes organic matter from the basin floor and walls.
