Case study details

Case studyDescription
Controlling Rainwater Sediment at a Surface Coal MineThis client is a surface coal mine in the southwestern US. The facility was having logistics challenges with their current chemical supplier, and this was hampering the efficiency of their operation. Brenntag was invited to discuss solving the logistics problems, but to also address the potential for improving the overall water treatment program using better chemistry.
Lowering FOG and TSS at a Frozen Foods ProducerThis facility is a very large food company on the east coast that specializes in various pre-packaged and frozen foods. The plant was experiencing challenges with their wastewater handling process, so Brenntag was brought in to help address a recent reconfiguration of their system, and assist the plant operators with continuing education.
Optimizing Clarifier Operation at a Drinking Water PlantOn a referral from a nearby water plant, Brenntag was asked to help optimize the clarifier operation at a 2MGD conventional plant using very old clarifiers. They were currently using an alum/copper sulfate blend and dosing a polyacrylamide flocculant separately.
Solids Settling at a Food PlantA regional juice manufacturing plant met with Brenntag’s Water Treatment Specialists to discuss challenges they were experiencing with their wastewater system.
Successful Conversion to Liquid Coagulants in Municipal Drinking WaterA current municipal client reached out to see if Brenntag could help them transition from a dry chemical system to a new liquid coagulant. They were ready to simplify their process and get away from using dry products with feed equipment requiring costly maintenance and related downtime.
Successful Phosphorus Removal at a Wastewater PlantThe removal of phosphorus from domestic wastewater is primarily to reduce the potential for eutrophication in receiving waters and is mandated and common in many geographies. Depending on the local restrictions, influent loading and water conditions, this can become very challenging.
Scale Inhibitors and Nouryon PolymersThe Brenntag Water Treatment Team presents the challenges often faced when using scale inhibitors in water treatment applications, as well as helping solve logistic and economic challenges in sourcing these products. Our technical experts discuss various types of products available for scale inhibition and the new LumaTreat™ active tagged polymers from Nouryon.
