Fluid Flow Rate and Mass Loading

Almost all wastewater treatment plants are designed based on the annual average daily flow rate of wastewater being processed. However, it should be noted that every plant has to take into account the actual daily flow rate, characteristics of wastewater, and the combination of flow rate and composition (called mass-loading) of the wastewater steam. In an on-site wastewater treatment facility that deals with wastewater streams from a fixed food processing operation, flow rate and mass-loading are not complicated issues in designing and managing wastewater. But for the waste-water streams from various sources subject to changes in flow rate and mass loadings, the peak conditions, whether it is peak flow rate or mass loading, need to be considered as well.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
