Industrial Waste Landfill Leachate Treatment Train #2

After the success of the Industrial Waste Landfill Water Treatment Train #1, it was decided to add a second processing plant.  See Industrial Waste Landfill Leachate Treatment Train #1 Project Description.  Although Train #2 is similar in many respects to Train #1, Train #2 includes many improvements and additional capabilities.  The process flow was redesigned to reduce equipment and control complexity.  The equipment layout was redesigned to improve operator and maintenance procedures.

Price Technology was pleased to work with many of the same consultants, engineers, and contractors that were involved with Train #1.    Price Technology was asked to assume  additional electrical design responsibility.  This allowed a cleaner motor starter cabinet design with reduced installation time and costs.

Price Technology designed interlocking control circuits to allow Influent Pump control from Train #1 Control Panel and Train #2 Control Panel.  Influent is pumped to Train #1 and Train #2 treatment plants by two diesel-driven pumps located in a remote location approximately 2500 feet from the treatment plant location.  A special control scheme was installed to allow selection and control of the remotely-located diesel-driven Influent pumps.

Status and alarm indications are also displayed at both Train #1 and Train #2 locations.

This project was completed with system start-up, testing, commissioning, and training in October 2008.



Assuming additional electrical design responsibilities also allowed a more coordinated electrical equipment installation with the equipment supplier.  Much of the electrical device and sensor wires were prewired to junction boxes located at convenient locations on the equipment structure prior to shipment saving onsite installation time and costs.
