Features

  • Customized solvers optimize filtration device design
    With customized solvers, computational flow simulations can be used to optimize the design of filtration devices. This article considers the complex interactions of clogging filters and the changing flow field. With the transport and deposit of solid particles in arbitrary gas or liquid flows, a wide range of applications is covered.
  • Modular waste water treatment works deliver flexible upgrade
    During low flow and colder conditions wastewater treatment works can struggle to cope with high levels of ammonia. One European plant turned to WPL to install submerged aerated filter units to help combat the issue, which could be transported from site-to-site.
  • Compressed air solution helps reduce CO2 impact
    In order to meet stringent carbon reduction targets at its ground stabilisation and soil reinforcement site in Blackburn, UK, Tensar International installed a compressed air system from Atlas Copco. The system is predicted to save over £22,000 in annual energy costs and achieve a 141 tonne reduction in its carbon footprint.
  • Magnetic filter assists cutting tool manufacturer
    In the preparation of tungsten carbide tool blanks, coolant must be suitably filtered to ensure an efficient grinding process. When a UK distributer found its cyclonic filtration device wasn’t working effectively, it installed a magnetic filter to improve contamination removal and overall performance.
