Some of the Services We Offer
Routine filter inspections provide an enormous amount of information about the condition of your filters and the effectiveness of your backwash. Optimizing backwash rates, duration and frequency will reduce operating costs, chemical consumption and backwash volumes. Routine filter inspections will prepare you for standard FPPE questions pertaining to filter runs, backwash and filter evaluation. Standard Filter Inspections include: Floc Retention Analysis Backwash Turbidity Analysis Bed Expansion / Fluidization measurement Rate of Rise Filter Coring Gravel Layer Contouring Media Evaluation Uniformity coefficient and effective size Microscopic evaluation and photography also available Trough Inspection Auxiliary Wash Evaluation
Backwash optimization through floc retention analysis, fluidization verification, rate of rise testing and backwash turbidity analysis will help maximize run times and enhance Unit Filter Run Volumes (UFRV).
Our main clientele are consulting engineers, utilities and treatment system manufacturers. We provide an independent and impartial third party evaluation of the processes selected by the consultant, or proposed by a vendor. Consulting engineers find that independent piloting helps them to be more competitive, by adding experience of specific processes to their team, by providing fully equipped and tested pilot and laboratory equipment, and by providing a third-party evaluation of the processes. Vendors find that WSP helps them to be more competitive by providing their clients with the assurance that comes with independent evaluations
Bench level jar testing and pilot scale demonstrations are both cost effective approaches to evaluating changes in process, chemicals or practices prior to initiating permit modifications and full scale system modifications.
Chemical cleaning of filters, tanks and pipes can reduce chlorine demand and reduce the formation of disinfection by-products (DBP’s) through the removal of naturally occurring organic and inorganic deposits.
