Recovering a Valuable Nutrient From the Wastewater Stream

 

Published in TPO Magazine, August 2019

 

Phosphate recovery technology offered by Schwing Bioset can be tailored to meet each facility’s specific operating challenges

 

Resource recovery is a major trend in wastewater treatment — to the task of cleaning water, facility teams are adding the capture of energy and nutrients.

One increasingly popular type of technology is the capture of phosphorus as struvite, which has market value as a fertilizer additive. One entry in that sector is Schwing Bioset, which offers a phosphate and nitrogen recovery technology under license from Belgium-based NuReSys.

The offering is unique in that it is not necessarily designed to extract revenue from nutrient capture, although that option is available. The process is designed to be tailored to each facility’s objectives in dealing with phosphate-related issues.

Besides nutrient recovery, the process has the benefits of preventing buildup of struvite scale in treatment equipment and improving dewaterability in biosolids. Wim Moerman, chief technology officer for NuReSys, and Chuck Wanstrom, director of new business development with Schwing Bioset, talked about the technology in an interview with Treatment Plant Operator.

Storage Silos for West Palm Beach Improvement Project

 

Written by Tom Welch

 

The East Central Regional Water Reclamation Facility has a rated treatment capacity of 70 million gallons per day and serves the cities of West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach, and Lake Worth; Palm Beach County, and the Town of Palm Beach.

Prior to the anaerobic digestion improvements, the plant utilized sludge decanting to concentrate solids to 2%, aerobic digestion to partially destroy solids, and belt press dewatering to remove excess water from biosolids, with dewatered cake hauled to the Solid Waste Authority – Palm Beach County (SWAPBC) Pelletizer Facility.

To help improve the plant’s processes, the anaerobic digestion project included mechanical sludge thickening to concentrate solids to 5%, temperature-phased Anaerobic Digestion to destroy more solids, and centrifuge dewatering to remove more excess water. 

Key to the whole process are new state-of-the art sliding frame sludge storage silos from Schwing Bioset that offer the plant flexibility in its operations by providing buffer capacity between the centrifuges and trailers. Sliding frame technology has largely displaced older live bottom truck loading technology at the wastewater plants as it holds many advantages, including; vertical sidewalls, no exterior ribbing required for structural integrity, very few and simple components for O&M activities, and flexible unloading configurations to accommodate variable trailer sizes. Once the dewatered Biosolids are loaded in trailers they continue to be transported to the SAWAPBC. 

Schwing Bioset Sliding Frame Silos           Schwing Bioset Biosolids Truck Loading

 

Schwing Bioset provided a quantity of four, 55 cubic yard silos with a truck loading conveyor for efficient truck loading. Overall the project reduces hauled biosolids by 15,000+ wet tons per year and reduces truck hauling costs and trips from the plant to SWAPBC.

Screw Presses Help Plant Reduce Maintenance Costs

 

Written by Chuck Wanstrom

Version also Published in TPO Magazine, August 2018

 

The city of Bradenton, Florida, operates a wastewater treatment plant that processes roughly 8 million gallon per day. The plant had historically aerobically digested their biosolids and dewatered them to 15% dry solids content using two, 2.0-meter belt filter presses. Due to the age of the belt filter presses, the maintenance expenditures were continually increasing and were creating a burden not only with expenses, but also with personnel time to keep the equipment functioning.

Bradenton began a search to identify new dewatering techniques that could replace the aging belt filter presses.  Several pilot studies were completed, and Schwing Bioset was invited to run our screw press pilot. The pilot proved successful with results of up to 21% dry solids. The Schwing Bioset screw presses were also able to fit within the confines of the available space on the second floor of the existing dewatering building. 

The Schwing Bioset equipment was chosen as the best value and was procured under a sole source contract. The two new FSP902 screw presses were designed into the existing dewatering building and were commissioned early in 2018. The dewatered biosolids exceed the old belt presses cake performance and reduces the city’s hauling and disposal costs while at the same time reducing the amount of wash water required and significantly reducing the maintenance load to city staff.

City Converts Biosolids Processing Equipment After Fire Disaster

 

Written by Chuck Wanstrom

Version also published in TPO Magazine, February 2019

 

Home to both St. Olaf and Carleton colleges, the City of Northfield, MN, is located approximately an hour south of Minneapolis and has a population of 20,000. The wastewater plant is approximately 3 MGD and has historically produced Class A biosolids via an open alkaline and thermal stabilization process. Disaster struck in May 2018 when a fire destroyed all of the Class A biosolids processing equipment, as well as the surrounding dewatering and odor control equipment in the building. 

Rather than simply replace the old equipment, the city of Northfield evaluated current available technologies and elected to convert from belt presses to screw presses for its dewatering needs and has purchased two machines from Schwing Bioset to accomplish this. Additionally, the city will continue with Class A biosolids production, but they are converting to Schwing Bioset's Bioset process. The Bioset process is a closed process that contains odors and dust that does not require supplemental heat and has also been approved by the USEPA through the PFRP process to operate at temperatures below those specified in the 503 regulations. 

Final detail design of this pre-purchased equipment is underway and the plant is scheduled to be operational later in 2019. To help the plant bridge the gap in biosolids processing while the new facility is in being constructed, the city is also renting a mobile screw press and Bioset trailer to process their current biosolids production.

Schwing Bioset Process Helps Community Maximize Beneficial Reuse

 

Written by Larry Trojak, Trojak Communications

Version also published in TPO Magazine, February 2019

 

Too Valuable to Waste

A lime stabilization process helps an Arkansas city meet its goal of producing Class A biosolids to enable the resumption of beneficial use. 

The strength and resilience of the wastewater treatment industry can often be found in the innovative solutions brought to bear to address the challenges it faces. And those solutions are not being employed solely by WWTPs in big cities or even larger municipalities, but often by small or mid-size operations — entities like the Russellville (Arkansas) Pollution Control Works Facility, for example. Faced with a situation in which they could no longer land-apply their Class B biosolids, plant officials looked for alternatives and opted to upgrade their operation to create a Class A product. In doing so, they’re finding value in their byproduct and have eliminated the need to simply waste it or — as they’ve reluctantly done in the past —  landfill it. A big solution from a smaller operation? Not surprising at all.

 

Snapshot: Russellville 

Located midway between Little Rock and Fort Smith, Ark., the city of Russellville is home to several major manufacturing facilities as well as the state’s only nuclear power plant. Owned and operated by Russellville City Corporation, the city’s Pollution Control Works Facility (PCWF) serves a population of 30,000 including all of Russellville and the nearby town of Dover. The wastewater collections system consists of roughly 170 miles of gravity sewer, 18 lift stations of various pumping capacities, and 14.1 miles of force main. Approximately 9,000 homes and businesses, and the service lines connecting these homes and businesses constitute an additional 129 miles of sewers — all of which terminate at the PCWF.

According to Randy Bradley, the facility’s wastewater operations manager, the plant has undergone periodic updates in its 55-year history, but really made a seismic shift in its approach a couple years back.

“Up to that point — and still to a large part today — we were a fairly typical operation,” he said. “The plant is designed for 7.3 mgd, and once wastewater gets here, it first goes through some Duperon bar screens to remove plastics and other products that can’t be broken down in normal treatment. After the screens, it undergoes grit removal and is pumped back through the plant where it goes through the primary clarifiers, then to one of three aeration basins — two 450,000 gallon tanks and one 850,000 gallon tank — and into the final clarifiers. A final stop in a chlorine contact chamber allows us to inject some sulfur dioxide to meet the non-detection limit of chlorine just before it is discharged.”

 

Change in Plans 

In the past, the facility’s primary sludge and the waste activated sludge from the aeration basins was pumped into a digester, then through a belt press for dewatering and deposited onto trucks that would take it for land application on several pieces of permitted property.

“However, in 2014, land ownership changed on one of those parcels and the new owners no longer wanted sludge on their land. So, we lost that piece of property, which was a substantial loss in available area, and were restricted solely to the parcel we owned. At that time, we were generating about 2400 lbs. per day of the Class B biosolids. Ordinarily, we might have been able to make that work, but, at the time, we had just added another aeration basin and clarifier to the front end of the process, so we knew we were going to be generating more solids. Something had to be done.”

Schwing Bioset Class A Biosolids Process 

Seeking Alternatives

Faced with that situation, the facility conducted an intensive study to look at the options available to them. Those included: increasing the digester volumes or improving the existing ones, composting, and the use of sludge dryers.

“What turned us off to drying the sludge was the significant initial investment,” said Bradley. “And, as I talked to people at other facilities, I discovered that there is a fairly high cost for maintenance on that equipment — that’s a one-two punch we didn’t need. And when we went to a northwest Arkansas composting facility, we found that solution to be very labor-intensive and it would demand much more acreage than we had available. Couple that with the fact that we weren’t certain we could ensure a reliable availability of the organic material needed for the process and it was no longer a serious choice. We needed another viable option and learned about it almost in our backyard.”

 

A Good Tip

At about that same time, the Russellville facility was encountering issues preventing them from maintaining the necessary retention time in their digester to meet Class B specifications, forcing them to truck their biosolids to a nearby landfill. It was a situation that ran counter to everything Bradley and his team stood for.

“We absolutely hate to have to send anything to landfill, and not just because of the costs involved in doing so — though those costs are substantial,” he said. “Landfills have space issues of their own and this is material that can ultimately serve a better benefit. But yet, we were at a point where we had no choice, so we contracted with Denali Water Solutions (Russellville, Ark.) to haul off our sludge. It just so happened that they’d been working on some potential projects with Tom Welch, a regional manager from Schwing Bioset, Inc. and told us about the Schwing Bioset process for creating a Class A biosolid.  After contacting SBI, we were intrigued enough that I, along with Lance Bartlett our utility engineer, and Chesley Jackson my senior operator, took a trip to St. Petersburg, Florida to look at their process in operation and saw the possibilities it held for us.”

In the context of what PCWF’s current solution looks like, the Schwing Bioset process to which Bradley refers, starts by taking biosolids that have been dewatered in a BDP 1.5-meter Model 3DP three-belt press and gravity thickener (at PCWF, dewatered to about 18% dry solids) and dropping them into a hopper with a twin-screw mixer in which quicklime and sulfamic acid are added and blended. The mixing effort helps alleviate issues such as unreacted lime in the final product — and the costs associated with it. A Schwing KSP-25 piston pump then sends the blended material into the 35 ft. long reactor where temps in the 140° F range from the acid/quicklime mixture raise the pH level, stabilize the biosolids mixture, and produce the Class A product PCWF needs.

Schwing Bioset Pump and Reactor 

Built for Expansion 

Getting to the point where the Schwing Bioset process was fully theirs and fully online, was something of a departure for all parties involved. According to SBI’s Tom Welch, in a deal that involved the plant’s owners, SBI and Denali Water Solutions, a mobile Bioset system was brought to Russellville to initiate a pilot program in order to prove out the process there.

“The final agreement involved us leasing our mobile Bioset system to Denali which they, in turn, operated for the facility, disposing of the material at an onsite dirt yard. Denali charged City Corporation, the owners and operators of the PCWF, a monthly fee to cover the labor, operation, and lease of the Bioset equipment. However, after the final equipment was purchased and the installation was nearing completion, facility management determined that they had the comfort level to operate the system and manage the disposal of the product themselves. That made good sense since bringing that process in-house would save them a large operating cost.”

Bradley added that the installation process itself was relatively quick and efficient. “Largely due to the help SBI provided — technicians spent the first two weeks with us — the install was very smooth,” he said. “During the design phase, we gave Ft. Smith-based Hawkins-Weir Engineering a projection for where we might be in 10-20 years and they designed the facility for future area development. As a result, the Bioset reactor is sized to handle two belt presses, so, if growth warrants it, we can just move another belt press in without skipping a beat.”

 

Great for the Soil

PCWF went online with the new system in 2016 and has been processing, on average, 81,000 lbs. of Class A biosolids per month since. Once the material exits the Bioset process, it is loaded onto dual axle dump trucks and taken out to an area adjacent to the plant, spread out using a front-end loader and allowed to dry. Once dry, it is moved into piles and — after periodic testing for salmonella — given away to area farmers. 

“We have several farmers competing for it at times, which is great for us,” said Bradley. “While the material has some nutrient value, its ability to boost the pH of soil is its real selling point. Almost all the soil in Arkansas is pretty acidic, so it welcomes that pH boost.

Next spring we are looking at possibly doing some type of bid for it. Simply recouping some of our costs — even enough to pay for fuel for the loader, for example — would be a nice bonus. But right now just having someone haul it off for us and make good use of it a huge improvement over what we did in the past. This entire project could not have gone better nor had better results.”

Sugar Creek WWTP Screw Press Records Impressive Data

 

Written by Tom Welch, November 2018

The Sugar Creek WWTP, owned by the Sangamon County Water Reclamation District located in Springfield, IL, has two Schwing Bioset model FSP 1102 screw presses and our Class B alkaline stabilization process. The screw presses dewater the plant’s aerobically treated biosolids and the downstream equipment produces the alkaline stabilized Class B biosolids. These biosolids are then windrowed in the District’s storage shed and eventually land applied for beneficial use. Data recorded from a recent site visit on a single screw press in operation was impressive and can be seen below.

Incoming Flow: 280 gpm
Incoming % DS: 1.5%
Throughput: 2,100 lbsdry/hr
Polymer Dose: 12 lbs/ton
Output % DS: 22%
Capture: >95%

 

Check out the included photos and operational videos, which show an overview of the installation and the equipment in action.

Schwing Bioset Offers Continuous Flow Option or Pulsation-Free System for Pumps

 

Written by John Brown, July 2018

Schwing Bioset, Inc. is pleased to announce our positive displacement pump with optional continuous flow for a pulsation-free system.

Based on the same technology used to pump concrete, our wear resistant positive displacement mining pumps have been used in both cemented and uncemented tailing applications.

Traditional piston pumps have a momentary pause in material flow through the pipeline while the discharge valve system switches in either a single or twin hydraulic circuit arrangement. In certain situations, this momentary pause in material flow can induce an undesirable water-hammer effect in the pipeline. Achieving continuous flow from the piston pump eliminates the water-hammer created by these momentary pauses in material flow.

Continuous flow is attained by operating each hydraulic cylinder of the piston pump independently.  While one cylinder is discharging, the opposite cylinder retracts at a faster rate to fill its material cylinder, then begins to move forward to pre-compress the product in the cylinder, such that it matches the system pressure. As the pumping cylinder nears the end of its stroke it begins to ramp down to zero speed.

The opposite cylinder during this period likewise ramps up its speed such that the total volume being discharged into the pipeline remains constant. Once the first cylinder arrives at a zero speed, it then retracts at an accelerated rate to charge and pre-compress its cylinder, to begin its pumping stroke again once the opposing cylinder begins to decelerate. This achieves a virtually constant flow rate, only limited by the electronic proportional control.

With this new development, each working cylinder gets a control block to support the required oil flow, independent from the other cylinder. The independently operating hydraulic cylinders are equipped with position transducers which allows their direction, position, and speed to be controlled continuously through a PLC.

Schwing Bioset ofrece la opción de flujo continuo o sistemas sin pulsaciones para bombas

Schwing Bioset se complace en anunciar la opción de flujo continuo o sistemas libres de pulsaciones en nuestras bombas de desplazamiento positivo.

Basado en la misma tecnología usada para las bombas de concreto, nuestras bombas de desplazamiento positivo resistentes al desgate han sido utilizadas en aplicaciones de relaves con cemento y sin cemento.

Las tradicionales bombas de pistones tienen una pausa momentánea en el flujo del material a través de la tubería, mientras la válvula de descarga del sistema cambia en ambos casos, ya sea un circuito simple o un circuito hidráulico doble. En ciertas ocasiones, esta pausa momentánea en el flujo de material puede inducir indeseables golpes de ariete en la tubería. Obteniendo el flujo continuo en la bomba de pistones, se eliminan los golpes de ariete creados por la momentánea pausa en el flujo de material.

El flujo continuo se obtiene operando cada cilindro hidráulico de la bomba de pistones independientemente. Cuando un cilindro está descargando, el cilindro opuesto se retrae de manera rápida para rellenar el cilindro de material, entonces empieza a moverse para pre-comprimir el producto en el cilindro, de tal manera que equilibra la presión en el sistema. Cuando el cilindro de material está cerca del final de su carrera empieza a disminuir su velocidad hasta cero. El cilindro opuesto durante este periodo igualmente aumenta su velocidad hasta que el volumen que está siendo descargado en la tubería permanece constante. Una vez que el cilindro alcanza una velocidad cero, este entonces se retrae a un rango acelerado de carga y precompresión, para empezar la carrera nuevamente una vez que el cilindro opuesto empieza a desacelerarse. Esto logra un caudal virtualmente constante, solo limitado por el control proporcional electrónico.

Con este nuevo desarrollo, cada cilindro de material tiene su propio bloque de control para obtener el flujo requerido, independiente del cilindro opuesto. Cada cilindro hidráulico de operación viene equipado con transductores de posición, los cuales permiten controlar continuamente la posición, dirección y velocidad de ambos cilindros independientemente a través de un PLC.
