Penn State selects Evoqua technologies
nited Utilities has invested in DynaDisc disc filtration technology from Hydro International to improve phosphates removal at its Congleton and Saddleworth wastewater treatment works in the UK and to meet Urban Wastewater Directive water quality targets. The DynaDisc units have been installed at both plants in a project to supplement secondary trickling filter beds treatment. Nomenca Ltd, a specialist mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control and automation contractor, also installed new dosing systems and integrated the equipment with existing instrumentation systems as part of United Utilities’ AMP5 investment programme. DynaDisc comprises modular discshaped screen cassettes covered with fine woven filter media to specified pore sizes, suspended on a rotatable shaft within a drum. Key benefits include a very compact footprint, low head requirements and high suspended particle removal.
ittsburgh-based Evoqua Water Technologies is helping Penn State University and the State College region manage their growing clean water needs by supplying adsorption systems and coconut shell-based granular activated carbon. The Evoqua adsorption systems remove organic contaminants through 12 12-foot diameter high-pressure vessels (HP1230SYS). Evoqua will also provide approximately 360 000 pounds of its Westates AquaCarb (AC1230C) virgin coconut shell-based granular activated carbon for use in the systems. The selection of Evoqua’s adsorption and granular activated carbon is part of a US$62 million water investment at Penn State that includes a new water treatment plant and water distribution system upgrades. Installation of the Evoqua adsorption systems is scheduled to begin in January 2016. The work is expected to be completed by October 2016.
