Next Filtration Next-F.O.G.Stop

Next Filtration’s Next-F.O.G.Stop is molecular kinetic technology that optimizes aerobic MLSS operation and increases wastewater throughput up to 40%. It promotes biostimulation of indigenous microorganisms through the uncoupling of microbial metabolic pathways. Trials demonstrate that it amplifies the metabolic rate of organic carbon degradation and lowers the amount of biomass produced. The excess carbon is metabolized and off-gassed in the form of carbon dioxide rather than being converted to biomass or biofilm. Specifically, results show feeding it into the inlet stream of municipal and industrial wastewater facilities led to a decrease of biological oxygen demand and total suspended solids, and an increase of dissolved oxygen. Indirectly, this leads to reduced energy consumption, due to reduced aeration blower rates. 800-783-0310;

Evoqua Water Technologies OMNIFLO SBR MAX

The OMNIFLO SBR MAX system with Jet Tech technology from Evoqua Water Technologies combines the benefits of a true-batch SBR with those of a continuous-fill batch reactor process to treat wastewater influent flows to over five times design. The system optimizes hydraulic handling during storm flows, reduces equipment sizing and cost, and can trim energy costs over 15%. At low flow rates, the system operates in the true-batch mode, and during peak flow events, the system automatically switches to operating as a continuous fill batch reactor to dissipate peak flows and slash hydraulic overflow rates. It allows for the treatment of storm flows while maintaining excellent effluent quality. Quiescent settling is preserved at all flow rates up to storm flow. Influent velocity dissipation prevents sludge disturbance and short-circuiting. There is no need for additional EQ basins or oversized reactor basins. Simple automated controls make necessary adjustments easy. 800-466-7873;
