Table of Contents

Wastewater Sludge Centrifugation Before Drying
The decanter centrifuge is an important piece of equipment for sludge volume reduction prior to thermal drying. Understanding centrifuge operation helps
manage drying energy costs

Cooling Towers: Managing Tighter Water-Discharge Regulations
Tightening regulations for cooling tower water discharge quality are requiring plant engineers to evaluate enhanced treatment options, sometimes including zero-liquid-discharge systems

A Primer on Reverse Osmosis Technology
Desalination by reverse osmosis is a key technology for a water-constrained world. Discussed here is its use in industrial water treatment and drinking-water production

Water-Saving Strategies for the CPI
Water savings at CPI facilities depend on effective water management, smart application of technology and corporate support

Biological Wastewater Treatment: Selecting the Process
Basic steps for developing an industrial-water treatment process are given, using an example of a difficult-to-biodegrade wastewater stream

Modern Water-Treatment Challenges
LNG and other facilities that are expanding due to the shale-gas boom face specific challenges when it comes to ensuring the purity of the inlet and outlet water

Challenges of Drying Sticky Wastewater Sludge
In wastewater-sludge drying and dewatering operations, many issues arise from the sticky properties of the sludge. Here are some insights to address them
