Tackling wastewater challenges system-wide

Sulzer and Nordic Water: delivering technologies to solve wastewater problems, not just shift them

Blockages in municipal wastewater systems are costly for utilities, inconvenient for users and potentially harmful for the environment. This increased stress on the system leaves the operators to find a smarter approach to ensure network-wide reliability.

A broad range of solutions are required to ensure reliable wastewater treatment processesA broad range of solutions are required to ensure reliable wastewater treatment processesMunicipal wastewater systems are now receiving less water and more waste. This shift is a subtle one, but it is having a profound impact on network reliability and maintenance costs around the world. On one side of the equation, the desire to reduce excessive water consumption is encouraging households and businesses to change their behaviors, shifting towards more water-efficient appliances and machines. On the other, significant quantities of difficult, solid materials continue to find their way into wastewater systems.

For utilities, tough fibrous wastes are particularly problematic. With less water flowing through the system, materials such as rags, nappies, wipes and face masks are more likely to drop out of the flow and accumulate. This can cause blockages, requiring expensive and inconvenient unplanned maintenance, potentially leading to environmental damage and significant fines due to sewer overflows.

Another challenge for many operators is handling the “first flush” of rain after an extended dry spell. This can be the trigger for a host of problems, as large volumes of solid material are imposed on network pumping stations and other vulnerable points in the wastewater system.

Stopping the block

One way to protect wastewater networks is to stop damaging solids reaching the places where they are likely to do most harm. Installing screens in network pumping stations to protect the pumps is one way to do this and such decisions should be supported by experts that can help with selection and dimensioning of the equipment.

An alternative approach involves the installation of equipment that is designed to cope with difficult solids. Clog-resistant wastewater pumps with large free passage can handle high levels of solid contamination thanks to a combination of clever geometry and robust materials. In the most challenging applications, grinders can be used to crush and shred solids in the flow to reduce the impact of the hard-to-handle material.

Any of these technologies can offer an effective and sustainable solution to blockage-prone pumping stations. However, focusing on the local fix sometimes produces new problems elsewhere. Fitting a clog-free pump in a small pumping station at the edge of the network might create a free pass for solids that will eventually settle and accumulate, causing problems further downstream.

Reducing the size of the solids too much, meanwhile, can have implications for wastewater treatment facilities as well. Screens at the beginning of the wastewater treatment process are a cost-effective and reliable way to capture and remove solids prior to treatment. If the solids are too small to be captured, that increases the load on subsequent sedimentation processes, driving up costs for the operator.

Networks that work

To avoid unintended consequences like these, utilities need to take a system-wide approach to the engineering of their wastewater networks. That requires a clear understanding of the loads imposed on the system, and access to a wide range of different types of equipment.

As one of the world’s largest suppliers of wastewater treatment technologies, Sulzer has long been a proponent of this approach. Every day, the company’s wastewater specialists work with customers to develop detailed risk profiles of assets and devise effective, cost-efficient solutions to address performance and reliability challenges.

Sulzer wastewater products are developed with network-wide performance in mind. Take the Monster Stack system used in the Muffin Monster grinder range, for example. The cutters in the stack are carefully sized to match real-world wastewater requirements. Larger cutters at the bottom of the stack make short work of heavier debris, while smaller cutters at the top give good results on lighter materials that tend to rise to the top of the flow.

Most importantly, however, Sulzer’s broad range of solutions means that the company’s experts are not tied to any single technology. They can work with customers to specify grinders, heavy duty pumps or specialized screens from the Nordic Water brand. They also have the skills to tie all those components together with smart control technology and provide support for installation, commissioning and maintenance activities.

The demands placed on wastewater networks are constantly evolving. For utilities, the key to their operation is a holistic, end-to-end design approach. With decades of expertise, a wide range of technologies and an open mind, Sulzer is the ideal partner to help deliver a reliable, sustainable and cost-effective system.

Worn Again Technologies’ demonstration plant will be constructed near to one of the startup’s technology partners, Sulzer Chemtech, in Winterthur, Switzerland. This represents a crucial step towards upscaling and commercializing the company’s recycling process technology.

In particular, the new industrial-scale infrastructure will help validate the closed-loop chemical recycling solution that has been developed by Worn Again Technologies and its strategic partners. The process obtains polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and cellulose from non-reusable, hard-to-recycle textiles that constitute a post-industrial and post-consumer waste. Additionally, the Worn Again Technologies process purifies the products by removing dyes, contaminants and impurities, a step forward from traditional recycling methods. As such, it delivers high-quality, virgin-like materials that can be reintroduced into supply chains to become new fibers, textiles and other products.

AHLSTAR peak pumping performance

Responding to our customers’ needs, we have developed additional features for the AHSTAR A pump series, and new options are also now available for demanding industries.

In the new ASTM A395 60-40-18 construction, the volute case and case cover of the pump are made of ductile iron. AHLSTAR A pumps in ductile iron have a maximum working pressure of 16 bars, with a temperature limit of 180°C.

Furthermore, a heating jacket option is available. The concept consists of a heating jacket and a jacketed case cover. The heating jacket is easy to install and maintain, providing evenly distributed heating across the entire pump. The solution is cost-effective because a standard AHLSTAR A pump can be used, and the same spare parts as for other AHLSTAR A pumps in the mill will fit. Proper temperature of the pumped liquid prevents undesired sedimentation, crystal growth, or solidification of the fluid handled.

2022 06 01 093116

Moreover, a case cover with internal recirculation has been developed for AHLSTAR pumps. In this design, an internal recirculation flushing fluid channel is integrated inside the case cover, enabling seal flushing without external piping.

Along with the new features, our AHLSTAR pumps have been assigned the Food Contact Materials Certificate (EC) 1935/2004. Food contact materials (FCMs) are widely used in food transfer equipment, packaging, etc. AHLSTAR pumps compliant with this regulation are the ideal solution for various food and beverage applications, from raw material production to processing and packaging.

Sulzer’s pumps are helping to optimize oil recovery while reducing greenhouse gas emissions in a pioneering project in the Middle East. As part of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques, captured CO2 emissions that have been converted into supercritical CO2 are pumped into depleted oil reservoirs to push the remaining oil to the riser, allowing much higher recovery rates. The pumped CO2 is then stored in the underground oil field, providing a perfect storage medium for the greenhouse gas. This groundbreaking circular process has the power to transform the oil and gas industry by reducing CO2 emissions while simultaneously maximizing recovery from existing oil fields – reducing the need for further oil exploration.

It is widely acknowledged that the traditional primary and secondary recovery methods for oil can leave up to 75% of the oil in the ground. Oil production from mature fields has therefore been declining and discoveries of new reservoirs will be insufficient to match growing energy demands. To reduce the need for further oil exploration, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques are now coming to the fore, with this method using captured CO2 emissions that have been converted into supercritical CO2, showing particular promise.

2022 05 17 104600Sulzer’s highly specialized pumps allow the CO2 to be pumped like a liquid, sweeping through a reservoir to push the oil to the riser with much higher efficiency than traditional methods using water. At the same time, the depleted oil fields then provide a perfect storage medium for the CO2, ensuring that it is not released into the atmosphere.

This pioneering process could therefore be a major benefit for the oil industry, providing new technology to help maximize recovery from existing oil fields, thereby reducing the need for further oil exploration, while also cutting CO2 emissions. Sulzer’s expertise is critical to the process, as the lightness and extremely high pressure of supercritical CO2 have a significant impact on the design of the pump, with most manufacturers steering clear of such applications.

Frederic Lalanne, CEO and President of Sulzer’s Flow Equipment Division commented: “As global demand for energy and materials continues to rise, it’s becoming ever more important to optimize the use of existing resources and work towards increasing renewables while also expanding the circular economy. Sulzer is committed to accelerating this transition using its engineering expertise, and this innovative process is one more example of how our technology can help to sustainably transform CO2-emitting industries”.

Sulzer is forced to wind down its two entities in Poland following a decision on an interpretation of the Polish sanction regulations, which were recently unilaterally introduced by Poland. It is Sulzer’s firm belief that the sanctions against its two entities in Poland are erroneous. Sulzer will use all legal means to dispute the decision, but is nonetheless forced to wind down the entities with immediate effect.  Sulzer reiterates that it is not affected by any other sanctions and is free to develop its business globally.

2022 05 17 104600Sulzer’s urgent request for removal from the Polish sanctions list, based on an OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) license granted in 2018 clearly confirming that there is no control by Mr. Vekselberg over any Sulzer Group entities, including Sulzer Pumps Wastewater Poland and Sulzer Turbo Services Poland, was denied yesterday evening by the Polish Interior Ministry. The decision was based on an interpretation under Polish law of the sanction regulations that were unilaterally introduced by Poland.

Sulzer will use all legal means under national and international law to remove its entities from the sanctions list. However, due to the company’s inability to conduct its business as a result of the sanctions, Sulzer is forced to wind down its two Polish entities with immediate effect.

Sulzer has 192 employees in its two Polish entities, all of whom are affected by the closure, along with revenues of CHF 21.5 million that will be impacted, representing 0.6% of total sales in 2021.

Sulzer confirms that the company has not been sanctioned in any other country, and Sulzer is not affected by any other sanctions. The Polish interpretation of sanctions regulations against Mr. Vekselberg therefore runs contrary to all other existing sanctions regimes as recognized under international law.

Sulzer has to temporarily suspend the activities of its two legal entities in Poland due to sanctions levied by the Polish government. The Polish sanctions apply to Sulzer’s minority shareholder, Viktor Vekselberg, and have been expanded over Sulzer’s two Polish entities, even though Mr. Vekselberg has no control or ownership of any Sulzer entity and is deprived of all his economic rights at Sulzer. The company is not sanctioned in any other country or legal entity and is consequently able to continue to develop its business globally. The potential impact on sales, if the suspension were to last, is limited to CHF 21m, representing 0.6% of Sulzer's total sales in 2021.

2022 05 17 104600It is Sulzer’s firm belief that the sanctions against its two entities in Poland are erroneous. Sulzer therefore continues to petition for urgent removal of its entities Sulzer Pumps Wastewater Poland and Sulzer Turbo Services Poland from the Polish sanctions list. Interactions with the Polish government are ongoing, with the support of representatives of the Swiss government administration.

Based on an OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) license granted in 2018, Sulzer is free to operate globally, independent of its sanctioned minority shareholder.

Sulzer has a total of 192 employees in Poland, all of whom are unfortunately affected by the Polish sanctions. We deeply regret this devastating situation, and the wide-ranging effects that the suspension is having on our employees and their families, as well as on the network of trusted customers, suppliers and partners that we have built up over many years of business in Poland.

Sulzer will continue to do everything in its power to petition for a removal from the sanctions list, while fully complying with the sanctions currently levied against the two entities. Sulzer Group continues to provide support to the families impacted by the local Polish sanctions.

The internet of pumps

Smarter control of wastewater pump networks transforms performance, reliability and cost-efficiency

Data flows faster than water, providing a stream of optimization opportunities. The latest in control technology allows pumping stations and wastewater treatment facilities to talk to each other, providing a better picture of real-time conditions and enabling smarter, more proactive management of the whole network.

A modern municipal wastewater system will rely upon numerous pumping stations and typically each one in the network contains its own control logic. Wastewater levels are detected by ultrasonic, radar or pressure sensors, backed-up by float switches. To prevent flooding, or damaging and wasteful dry running, the controller in the station switches the pumps on or off, based on the data from those sensors.

This distributed approach is simple and robust, but what is best for one pumping station might not be optimal for the whole network. If multiple upstream stations all switch on at the same time, for example, their combined flows could overwhelm the capacity of the next station downstream. That situation is especially likely to happen if a blockage or mechanical problem temporarily reduces downstream pumping capacity.

Making the link

Today, larger pump networks are addressing this challenge by taking a smarter, more proactive approach to control systems. Sulzer pump controller technology, for example, allows every station to connect with the treatment works using secure, two-way communications. Stations can report real-time local levels, flow rates and operating conditions with the central controller issuing commands to adjust pump control parameters as required.

This interconnected approach gives operators a much more detailed picture of the real time status of the wastewater network. They can spot increasing flows earlier, allowing them to take preemptive action to prepare the treatment site for a spike in demand. They can also reduce the severity of these spikes by instructing pumping stations to delay their activation, taking advantage of the storage capacity within the network.

Intelligent pump control enables a network of pumping stations to work more efficientlyIntelligent pump control enables a network of pumping stations to work more efficiently

From reactive to proactive

Sulzer’s smart control approach even allows operators to take proactive steps to meet demand before it hits the network. Take the example of a large, but intermittently used facility such as a sports stadium. Around the time of a big match, that stadium might impose a significant additional load on the network, while for the rest of the time it produces relatively low flows.

With a smart control system in place, the pumping station closest to the stadium can detect the initial increase in flow that indicates a forthcoming spike in demand. That signal can automatically trigger a series of actions. Stations downstream of the stadium can switch to a lower “start” level, emptying the well and increasing their available storage capacity. Other stations in the network, meanwhile, can be instructed to store more wastewater temporarily, releasing it into the system when the local peak has passed.

The same approach can help operators handle other transient events, such as intense local rainfall, or regular demand peaks when many people use their showers at the beginning or end of the day. In addition, the system enables energy consumption and costs to be optimized. If storage capacity allows, for example, the activation of pumps can be delayed until times of the day when low-cost electricity is available. Alternatively, stations with multiple pumps can cut the number of units in operation to reduce flow rate and energy consumption as demand tapers off after a peak.

Same assets, more value

Best of all, smart control doesn’t require a mass of costly new hardware. Sulzer pump controllers generate their data from the standard sensors already installed in the pumping station. Outflow rates are a function of pump capacity and run time, while inflows can be calculated from the rate of level change reported by the level sensors, multiplied by the well’s cross-sectional area. If a pressure sensor is added to the outgoing mains, this reading can be used to further increase the pump capacity and forward flow calculation accuracy as well helping to determine problems such as partially clogged mains.

For these systems to operate effectively, the station’s sensors do need to provide reliable, consistent data, however. The experience of one major water utility in the UK suggests that radar sensors tend to be less dependent on optimal setup and maintenance than ultrasonic sensors, for example.

Whatever technology is used, built-in features of the Sulzer controllers can monitor sensor performance and alert operators if a sensor becomes faulty or poorly calibrated. This is achieved by comparing the level reported by the sensor to a known reference point, such as the activation of a float switch. The system can also warn of other problems in the station, such as a potential blockage, pipe breakage or pump fault. That allows operators to deploy field maintenance resources quickly and cost-effectively.

Sulzer’s smart pumping station controls can deliver truly significant savings and system performance improvements. At the UK water company mentioned earlier, for example, the introduction of this approach led to a 45% reduction in operating costs and a 75% reduction in potential environmental impact costs. The payback period for the entire new control and monitoring system was only two and half years.
