This technical guide explains what biological wastewater treatment is, how it works, and how it’s used to improve the quality of industrial waste water streams prior to discharge. The guide looks at the main types of treatment including aerobic, anaerobic and anoxic; the importance of Biological Oxygen Demand or BOD, and the different types of waste water treatment technologies currently including various types of bioreactor.

This technical guide explains how anaerobic wastewater treatment works, and how it’s used to improve the quality of industrial waste water streams. The guide looks at where this type of process is used and how it can improve treatment efficiency. It then reviews the most common types of anaerobic digester including the use of lagoons, blanket reactors and filter reactors.
In this article the experts at Water Treatment Services explain how UK water companies calculate business water bills and sewerage charges. The article looks at the different approaches applied to domestic and non-domestic customers; along with small, medium and large water users. It considers the role of the UK’s water industry regulator Ofwat in keeping things fair, and concludes by reviewing the different types of charging tariffs used by water companies.
This technical guide explains the process known as aerobic wastewater treatment, and how it is used to improve the quality of industrial wastewater streams. The guide looks at what the process involves, and how it works. It also considers each of the most popular types of aerobic system used by businesses including activated sludge, fixed bed bioreactors, moving bed bioreactors, membrane bioreactors and biological trickling filters.
Taking steps to improve effluent treatment in the food industry can lead to significant process improvements; it can save businesses money, keep them the right side of the law and improve environmental performance. All good news, but where do you start?
Cooling systems play an increasingly important role in the management of internal workplace environments. In this guide the experts at Water Treatment Services compare two of the most common types of cooling system, adiabatic cooling systems and open evaporative systems. The guide looks at how each one operates and the important differences between the two including the risks associated with legionella, how energy efficient they are, how much water they use, water treatment considerations and annual running costs.
In this article the industrial water specialists at Water Treatment Services investigate the link between legionella, hard water and limescale; asking the question… does hard water increase the risks from Legionella bacteria both at home and in the workplace? The guide explains what hard water is and how it can cause problems in water systems, where it can be found in the UK, if the build-up of scale or limescale increases the risks posed by Legionella bacteria, and what can be done to control its impact.
This technical water guide looks at the options for closed system water treatment to protect all types of heating, chilled and cooling water systems. It identifies the three main problems that can cause closed water systems to perform poorly or even fail and what can be done to prevent it happening. The guide looks at what these problems are, what causes them and what can be done to control their impact and maintain thermal performance, save energy, reduce maintenance costs and down-time, and extend plant and equipment life-cycles.
