Digester Boiler Replacement

Wastewater Treatment Facility: Hutchinson, Kansas

Project Owner City of Hutchinson Project Delivery Method Design-Bid-Build Completion Date / Total Time for Project March 2018 / 6 months Project Value $1,100,000

Project Overview

The city of Hutchinson wastewater treatment facility is a state of the art secondary treatment facility treating approximately 5 million gallons a day of domestic and industrial wastewater to EPA and KDHE specifications. Treatment is accomplished through a series of processes and allows the recycled wastewater to be returned to the Arkansas River without harm to aquatic life or the environment.  These processes include physical processes in which debris, grit, and sand are removed from the wastewater and organic solids are settled out of the raw wastewater, and biological processes.

UCI was brought on board to replace the existing boiler system for the digesters at the facility. This new system consisted of installing two new boilers along with two new heat exchangers. This was accomplished by erecting a new boiler building and completely re-routing all process piping. The project required a completely new power feed supply along with switch gears and starters. The entire system is completely automated and tied back to the existing plant control room. UCI was able to accomplish this project by coordinating with plant operating personnel in a logical order to maintain the process flow throughout the plant.
