Evoqua to upgrade Dayton Water Reclamation Facility in Ohio

Evoqua Water Technologies has been chosen to provide clarifier upgrades for the Dayton Water Reclamation Facility in Dayton, Ohio.

For this upgrade project, Evoqua has worked closely with its sales representative, Henry P. Thompson Company.

The Dayton Water Reclamation Facility is responsible for meeting high water quality standards before treated wastewater is discharged into the Great Miami River.

The facility's clarifier equipment reached the end of its useful life.

Evoqua was selected based on product performance, quality standards, and the ability to retrofit existing equipment without major structural changes.

Eight 160-ft. clarifier tanks will be replaced by Evoqua's Medical Division with stainless steel secondary clarifiers featuring the advanced Tow-Bro Hydraulic Sludge Removal System and FEDWA Energy Dissipating Inlet (EDI), both part of the Envirex product family.

The FEDWA EDI cuts down flow velocities and boosts flocculation for more efficient solids settling and increased treatment capacity. The Tow-Bro System quickly and effectively removes settled solids with a hydraulic unitube header.

For municipalities requiring high water quality standards, upgrading with the FEDWA EDI and Tow-Bro system is claimed to be the suitable clarifier solution. These technologies together help to reduce sludge retention time and boost effluent quality, significantly reducing the potential for denitrification and phosphorus release.

Evoqua has more than 100 years of experience with high performance clarifier technologies through its Envirex family of products.
