Aeration Tank Organic Overload Resolved by Landia Mixers

The introduction of five Landia mixers has brought about significant improvements to the biological and dewatering processes at the recently upgraded Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Milton, Pennsylvania. Serving six municipalities in Northern Northumberland County, the new-look Milton Regional Sewer Authority (MRSA) WWTP has been designed so that it is powered by anaerobic treatment of wastewater from the nearby ConAgra food facility (makers of brands such as Healthy Choice ravioli and spaghetti meals) During the design of the upgraded plant, demand for ConAgra products had led to an increase in its production, which in turn created an organic overload in the treatment plant’s aeration tanks. And due to the anticipated removal of ConAgra’s settling processes, the strength of the food

Pumps & Flow Meters

Submersible Pumps Pump Up the Market

Jets and pumps share a similar function, but the growth of the submersible pumps market is expected to grow owing high demand. Pumps have proved to be more efficient and practical despite having the same function as jets. Submersible pumps are preferred as they do not need suction techniques that are required by jet pumps to pull the liquid. In fact, submersible pumps use direct water pressure to bring the water to the surface. Infrastructural and agricultural development alongside growing urbanization and industrialization have led to the increase in demand for pumps. Demand for submersible pumps is expected to remain significant from agriculture and wastewater treatment industries throughout the forecast period.
