Deteriorated cleaning efficiency, few dysfunctional parts, or insufficient capacity of your wastewater treatment plant may not be the reason why you need to set up a brand new WWTP. Many existing wastewater treatment plants which can no longer perform at 100% can continue to function without difficulties if you let them refresh or intensify over time.
Our effort is to apply the latest knowledge of science, scientific and technological development in all projects of reconstruction and intensification of existing WWTPs so that all the capacities of an existing WWTP are used as economically as possible. In addition, Hydrotech is able to provide the reconstruction or intensification of existing WWTPs in full operation so you will not have to interrupt or limit production.
A new IC reactor start-up is planned in PIKA Bzenec cannery in August. The factory is increasing production and the hydraulic loading at WWTP is increasing, too. That is why the customer has decided to intensify their plant, which will include extending the existing anaerobic volume with a new same size IC reactor. Part of the intensification will be the installation of more powerful pumps for IC, new biogas treatment ( gasholder with flare for burning excess biogas), increasing of NaOH preparation unit capacity, waste air treatment and new aeration system in the post-aeration tanks. The WWTP capacity will increase from 733 to 1 100 m3/d. Mass loading will change from 5 000 to 7 500 kg/d with 85 % efficiency of COD removal.
For several months, Hydrotech has intensively dealt with pilot plant testing of food industry waste water with high concentrations of organic compounds (COD), sulphur and dissolved inorganic salts. In the first phase, aerobic bacteria were applied so oxygen was needed for them to be able to treat them. After several important adjustments of technology, the process began to work perfectly and the system treats the waste water not exceeding required limits. In the second phase, Hydrotech made a decision to try to treat waste water in anaerobic way. The high loaded IC reactor parameters and treating limits are determined by gradual system loading. Pilot testing results seem very promising, so far.
A waste water treatment plant construction process in North Dakota for an emerging distillery has reached the point when assembly could begin. The team of Hydrotech´s employees with a chief fitter and technologist left company´s headquarters in Vinosady, Slovakia and started to work on assembly in the USA. The current situation is favourable – the high loaded anaerobic IC reactor has been almost completely finished, as well as the flotation unit for removal of aerobic sludge and the sieve for bigger particles removal at the WWTP inlet.
Hydrotech specialists guarantee high quality solutions to all kinds of clients across several industries.
Starting with design through construction to completition we have been able to deliver more than 700 wastewater treatment plants across Europe, Asia, Africa and Caribbean.
