  • Advanced hollow fiber UF membranes improve performance in tertiary water treatment
    Growing global demand for clean water and increasing environmental concerns make membrane filtration the technology of choice for municipalities and industries seeking to reuse wastewater and reduce their water footprint. But how is the technology developing in this field?
  • Advanced Conversion: Maximising the Potential for Energy from Waste
    One of the most readily-available and viable solutions to help address the challenge of our growing energy needs is Energy-from-Waste (EfW) – which has the potential to take a multitude of waste streams (such as municipal solid waste) and convert them into energy. We look at how modern techniques can make the technology more efficient.

  • Repairs revitalize papermill system
    The papermaking industry places heavy demands on liquid ring vacuum pumps to remove water throughout the process and repairs require considerable expertise. One pump distributor and systems builder undertook the repair of a pump which had been operating for over 45 years in a papermill in northern Finland.
  • Plug and play pump benefits printing plant Plug and play pump benefits printing plant
    When a European printing company needed to make major repairs to one of its fixed speed vacuum pumps it reassessed their combined operation to establish potential savings that could be made. They chose a new VSD-driven vacuum pump from Atlas Copco.

  • Load shifting aids energy saving: part 2
    A South African initiative to encourage load shifting prompted an in-depth review of pumping processes at the Tugela paper mill’s water supply plant. After a general overview of the project, the first part of this two-handed case study1 focused on the plant’s high-lift pumping station. In this concluding part, Graeme Harding from the Magnet Engineering Division considers flow control, and assesses the transfer and low-lift pumping stages, and plant piping and instrumentation, before presenting the final solution.
