Wastewater Plant Struggles With Particulate Contamination

Source: Pentair

A plant in the southwest US commissioning a wastewater plant utilizing proprietary technology for the removal of benzene, toluene, and xylene, or BTX, was experiencing challenges with throughput and elevated operational costs due to the presence of particulate contaminants.

The plant takes the wastewater and processes it, removing the BTX prior to being fed to the conventional wastewater plant. The project was completed as to reduce the amount of BTX in the feed to below their permit limits.
