Flo-Dynamics Systems has extensive experience in the development of wastewater systems
Waste water flows down daily in drains and toilets in homes, factories, schools, businesses and flows into the city’s sewer system. Excess of rain and snow melting, sidewalk and street washing and other activities stream into a catch basin in the streets, and from there it flows into the sewers. In some neighborhoods, the excess of the street is taken by different sewers to local streams, bay, and rivers. In most areas, industrial and sanitary wastewater, street runoff, and rainwater are assembled in the same sewers, and they are directed to the treatment plants of the cities. This is called combined sewer system.
At times, during intense rain and snow, collected sewer stuff to a capacity and makes it difficult to take the collected sanitary and storm sewage to the sewer plants. When this happens, the amassed excess water and sewage that is untreated, stream straight into the waterways. This is known as sewer overflow (CSO). Around 70 percent of sewers of the city are combined.
During wastewater management process, the wastewater goes into five main processes. The first two treatments take out pollutants around 85% of 95% from wastewater.
In this stage, the wastewater streams into the management plants from the sewers connected to the city’s home, schools, businesses, etc. The wastewater known as influent directs through monitors including vertical bar, placed three inches apart. These vertical bars take out large particles of the trash and protect the sewage pumps and other gears.
Now, the wastewater flows into the primary setting tanks known as sedimentation tanks for about 2 hours. The water flow is reduced so that the heavier particles settle on the tank’s bottom and the lighter particles are left for floating. In the end, the floatable garbage is taken from the surface of the tank.
Secondary treatment is also known as activated sludge process. The reason behind is that the air and the seed sludge from the treatment process are inserted to the wastewater to break the dust particle further. Air is pumped into the huge aeration tanks. This combines the wastewater and mud that increases the oxygen growth with the help of bacteria and other small organisms. The aerated wastewater is then directed to the final settling tanks.
To sanitize and eradicate harmful organisms, the wastewater is put in a chlorine contact tank mixed with sodium hypochlorite for around 15-20 minutes. The wastewater that has been treated is released into the local waterways.
There are three stages in sludge treatment:
- Sludge dewatering
