Sugar Production

Being able to focus on the products that make you money, while leaving your wastewater treatment to the experts… what could be sweeter?

Producing Sugar takes effective wastewater treatment.

From the sugar beet operations dotting the Great Plains, to the sugar cane grown in SEC country, water is a critical part of sugar production. Our experts are ready to help your operation with the proven tools and even a full suite of installation and maintenance services so you can stay in your sweet spot.

Reduce the cost of your oxygen.

When it comes to treating the BOD and COD (biological and chemical oxygen demand), the key number is the cost per pound of oxygen. Whether you have lagoons that need optAER fine-bubble lagoon aeration, or you have concrete basins ready for EDI engineered aeration solutions, we can help you cut that cost of your oxygen down by a third of what surface aerators require, with no on-water O&M for things like changing oil. Plus, we have the membrane options to ensure you’ll get longer-lasting membranes that are resistant to things like calcium carbonate fouling.

Our wastewater treatment experts will help you select from our full range of optAER lagoon fine-bubble aeration and related upgrades, or EDI’s series of FlexAir fine-bubble membranes—whether it’s EPDM, HTPE, our proprietary PTFE-embedded Matrix™ and Matrix Plus™ membranes, or a special polymer designed just for you. Our engineers’ final configuration will be designed to keep your fine-bubble aeration system operating at its peak for longer and saving you money.

Look Inside

FlexAir fine-bubble aeration systems consist of variable configurations (like fixed grids or ModulAir), diffusers (like panels, tubes, and discs), and membranes (like EPDM, PTFE-embedded Matrix, and more).

Did you know?

Even if you have existing aeration, efficiency cost savings could pay for the cost to maintain or upgrade your system.

Case Study

Upgrading to FlexAir Streamline® diffusers enabled Lisbon, Portugal’s Frielas wastewater treatment plant to achieve an SOTE of 38.5%, surpassing the the requested SOTE of 37.75%, an efficiency of ~6.6%/m.

We can help you discharge earlier, more, longer.

Every day of wastewater you have to store requires space and infrastructure to store it. Our solutions can help you be ready to discharge earlier, faster, and for a longer season.

The BioPorts MBBR was built for situations exactly like this; by amassing and housing the biology that treats ammonia or nitrates on HDPE media (rather than just wasting it downstream or using a recycle process to recover a portion of it), BioPorts can intensify your treatment. That means you get treatment that is able to handle more (and more variable) loading, in a system that is more reliable, simpler to run, and in tight small footprint.

Look Inside

BioPorts MBBR media has a proprietary design that maximizes durability and protected surfaces.

Did you know?

Because the BioPorts media breaks up bubbles, low-maintenance coarse bubble aeration gets fine-bubble-level oxygen transfer efficiencies.

Case Study

The town of Horse Cave, KY is about salad dressing rather than rare earth minerals, but high-strength wastewater is common to both.

Remove more solids (Even get reuse-ready)

Solids removal can help reduce your municipal treatment surcharges, and could be more economical than you might imagine. With the infini-D Zero-Downtime series of cloth filters, you’ll remove particles down to 5 microns in size, and thanks to our drum filter configuration, smaller plants with flows up to 380 L/min (100 GPM) have a more efficient, small footprint solution.

And because it’s part of the infini-D series of cloth filters, using our California Title 22-compliant cloth media, your wastewater will be one step closer to be ready for reuse. (Of course, whether you’re into the latest trend to make beer out of cleansed wastewater may vary, contact us if you’re intrigued.)

Did you know?

The infini-D cloth disk filter is flexible enough to be installed into concrete tanks, steel tanks, even specific pre-existing tankage.

Look inside

Only infini-D Zero-Downtime filters have individual effluent ports, the key to internal redundancy.

Case Study

Camp Verde, AZ’s little leaguers play on infini-D filtered wastewater, reused to irrigate the town’s baseball diamonds.

Let us handle your dirty work

Even if you have full-time wastewater treatment staff, there are some jobs worth offloading. Maybe its the on-water work of inspecting and cleaning your aeration diffusers. Maybe it’s a big job of replacing outdated, inefficient membranes. Maybe it’s getting your brand new equipment installed by the manufacturer’s own wastewater treatment experts, not just any contractor between paving jobs, and having that single point of responsibility.

It’s worth hiring the right team to get the job done right, done faster, and with a warrantee. That right team is SiteWorks, our elite wastewater treatment squads and your wastewater operation’s new best friends. SiteWorks’ only goal is to ensure your plant is so well installed, serviced, and (should the need arise) repaired, you never have to worry about your wastewater treatment again. 

Did you know?

SiteWorks installs, services, and repairs all makes and models of wastewater treatment plants.

Decide once…

…have it done right forever. Service contracts from SiteWorks ensure your treatment plant gets the attention it needs, when it needs it, without you lifting a finger.

Case Study

Since 1994, Duckett Creek, MO’s 5 MGD plant has saved tens of thousands of dollars annually thanks to upgrades, services, and expansions performed by SiteWorks.
