City Of Flowery Branch Adds Tertiary Treatment Capability With Kruger's Hydrotech Discfilter Technology

Kruger Inc., the Veolia business unit specializing in water, wastewater, and biosolids treatment solutions for municipalities, was awarded a contract from the City of Flowery Branch, GA to furnish one Hydrotech Discfilter system for their Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP).

Kruger will provide one Hydrotech Discfilter unit with controls system and backwash water pump station to the City of Flowery Branch. The system is designed to treat secondary wastewater to reuse standards by filtering a peak flow of 2 MGD and provide effluent with TSS ≤ 5 mg/L. The Flowery Branch WCPC is using this technology to add tertiary filtration for reuse as part of their overall treatment process capability.

Hydrotech Discfilter utilizes many patented designs, including the oscillating backwash spray header which provides efficient media cleaning while reducing water consumption by 20 percent. Its innovative design and robust construction consistently produce high quality effluent despite high solids loadings and upset conditions. Its compact footprint, simplified control system and straight-forward installation process make the Hydrotech Discfilter a respected filtration technology.

Expected to be operational during the fall of 2016, the Hydrotech Discfilter will give the City of Flowery Branch a cost-effective, state-of-the-art technology that will provide first-rate filtration well into the future.
