Filamentous Identification Lab Service. One reason to identify filaments is to determine the filaments characteristics and then determine the type present. If the type is found out, a root cause can usually be associated with a particular filament. If the cause is known, then a correction can be made to alleviate problems. Chlorination is only a quick fix. Without process changes, filaments will grow back after chlorination.
Wastewater Biomass Analyses and Cooling Tower Analyses also available
Training is an integral part of any job. Not everyone is at the same level of training. Many people want beginning concepts and basics. Some need technical information or troubleshooting. Some want equipment, technology or process information.
We have developed a full set of Basic training, Advanced training, Filamentous Identification the Easy Way as well as custom training CD's Manuals. We also provide hands-on training classes and soon will have an Online "E-University".
Audits and Consulting:
At Environmental Leverage® Inc., we have a team of experienced individuals who come into your plant with a fresh pair of eyes. The system is checked from influent to effluent. System optimization, equipment efficiency and operational excellence are key components explored. Key Benefits Equipment efficiency Total Cost of Operation reductions Reliability and safety
An onsite audit is conducted to examine system parameters, process controls, and current monitor and control procedures. A physical walk-through is conducted, process flow diagrams are examined, previous design criteria are examined and current standard operating procedures are evaluated along with data logs.
Troubleshooting Algae in Lagoons
We have just added "Virtual Audits" to our capabilities. Check out our new Services. We are in the process of developing an ""Online E-University" in order to meet the needs of our global customers that cannot travel to our public classes. Stay tuned for details and updates.
Pests or natures helpers. . . . .
Well, there are mixed opinions on Algae- are they truly pests or do they help clean up some of the excess chemicals found in our waterways and provide a food source for aquatic life?
Algae can be found growing in ponds, lakes, in clarifiers,
de-chlorination tanks, etc.
With summer time here, and lots of plants, ornamental ponds, lakes and lagoons having difficulties with algae control, we are going to put together a few pages on plants and their issues. Then we will put together the types of algae that can be found as an fyi, because in reality, most of the algae that are growing in your plant, regardless of species, need to be controlled and removed!
Problems associated with Algae:
These photomicrographs were taken from many wastewater treatment plant Lagoons.
Canadian Geese control is one way to keep out excess waste in lagoons that can add supplemental nutrients that cause algae growth.
Here you can see the wires stretched across the lagoons. Geese need a long runway to land and take off, so the wire stops them from visiting the lagoon.
Duckweed can grow very quickly if there is sufficient BOD and nutrients available
Aeration is a must in large lagoons.
