    Fly Ash - Industrial Vacuum

    Fly Ash can cause many problems. The Vac-Con & Vector Pneumatic Vacuum systems can assist and solve many of these problems. Our high-performance vacuum systems are manufactured in three basic configurations: Truck mounted, Trailer mounted, and Fixed/static installed. Any of these systems can be integrated into the existing power plant design. All of our vacuum systems can be utilized to solve your plant’s fly ash removal/clean-up needs and can assist in many other maintenance projects. All can be tailored to fit into your power plant’s specific needs. Vac-Con Truck mounted Industrial vacuum systems are equipped with large storage debris tanks with self-cleaning intake filter systems. The Industrial Trucks vacuum the waste products through existing manifold piping or with hoses attached directly to the debris tank. When fully loaded, the truck can then drive directly to the disposal site and discharge the waste products. The Industrial Truck offers a great amount of flexibility of operation and can be utilized anywhere in your facility for many different types of normal and emergency maintenance operations. The Vac-Con Industrial Vacuum Truck can be utilized on both wet and dry materials. The same Vac-Con truck can be used for removing Fly Ash from your plant, coal from broken intake belt conveyors, or used to suck wet muddy material from storage lagoons. The Vector Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems are designed to be used in several locations around power plants. The Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems connect to Manifold piping located in key areas within your power plant. The Vacuum systems move the waste products from the plant and deposit these products into moveable storage containers. The loaded storage containers when full can then be moved to the disposal sites for discharge. Vector Static Mounted Vacuum systems are designed to vacuum and remove Fly Ash and other bulk waste products through manifold piping from operational areas of the plant and deposit these waste products into collection storage silos for later transport to disposal sites. The fixed vacuum systems are electric motor driven and are normally installed as a permanent addition to in-plant existing conveying systems. Please contact us with any requirements you may have. We will evaluate your request and respond with solutions specific to solve your problems and fit your needs.

  • Oil water separation for the food industry

    Packaged-food producers frequently use and then must discard large batches of cooking oil used in their process. Usually they drain most of the oil directly from equipment, but they must remove residual oil by regularly washing fryers, ovens, conveyors, and other machinery. 

    The oil mixes with the wash water and becomes part of the plants wastewater stream. Having oil in wastewater complicates the wastewater-treatment process by making it more expensive, more time-consuming, and less effective. Additionally. as with other manufacturers, packaged-food producers want to reduce waste and decrease the environmental impact of operations. That is why removing used oil and solids from wastewater before it is discharged is a priority.

    Water treatment for power plants

    The process of electricity generation from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas is water-intensive. Between 40-50% of all water abstracted and used in developed countries is used in the generation of electricity. Thus, a reliable, abundant and predictable source of raw water supply to a power plant is a critical factor in site selection. Water supplies are required to provide various process waters for the following essential main purposes such as make-up water, cooling water for steam turbine condensers, and auxiliary plant cooling water.

    The primary application of modern water treatment technology is to maintain the integrity and performance of the power plant. Critical plant applications have water purity or conditioning requirements that must be adhered to for safe, reliable and efficient power generation.

    Experience has shown that integration of water technology treatments with power plant design can be very important in reducing operational problems and component failures 

    At power plant worldwide there are increasing limitations on water availability and environmental restrictions on discharges. This is expected to promote measures for water conservation and to have an increasing influence on water treatment decisions. At power plant, the recycling of internal wastewater streams can extend from the recovery of individual high-quality waste streams, which can be reused either directly or after only limited treatment, through to the development of fully integrated water/wastewater treatment systems for zero liquid discharge. However, the application of reuse schemes requires site-specific assessment, as not all waters may be viable options for recovery.

    Solutions for the wastewater sector

    Conventional wastewater treatment systems are focused on efficient removal of polluting components. This is commonly done through aeration and separation of formed biomass from the cleaned water. After treatment the water would be discharged onto surface waters or subsoil irrigation. Introduction of polishing steps after these treatment systems opened up the possibilities to reuse water for either irrigation or even potable water. DMT Environmental Technology also implements these solutions with its MemBioRex membrane bioreactor. Nowadays novel technologies enable reuse of saline water within industries such as unconventional oil and gas, industry, agriculture, and mining. DMT Water Technology develops and realises innovative products to enable our customers to meet these challenges.

  • Residential Areas and Hostelries wastewater treatment

    Residential Areas and Hostelries wastewater, including water generated by domestic use, by shops, restaurants and laundries, must be adequately treated to meet the discharge requirements of public sewers or channel, or reuse as irrigation water mainly.

    This wastewater has the following characteristics:

    • Variations in flow depending on the time of day and season (mainly in tourist areas).
    • High suspended solids content.
    • Presence of oils, fats and detergents.
    • High concentration of easily biodegradable organic matter.
    • Adequate concentration of nutrients.

  • Waste management for ships and sea platforms

    For those who have lived in the arms of the sea, the bond is powerful and eternal. When mariners discharge waste into the sea, it is not carelessness but desperation…a last resort used in the absence of practical alternatives. The waste generated on every ship comes from both people and machinery. People generate garbage and sewage. The various motors and shafts generate used oils, dirty rags and a wide variety of other waste. The mariner has three options for all this waste: (i) store it on board and discharge it at the next port; (ii) treat it on board; or (iii) discharge it at sea. Today, none of these options are practical.

  • Sulfide Oxidation with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)

    Sulfide Odor Control Sulfide is found throughout the environment as a result of both natural and industrial processes. Most sulfide found in nature was produced biologically (under anaerobic conditions) and occurs as free hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - characterized by its rotten egg odor. We are most likely to encounter biogenic H2S in sour groundwaters, swamps and marshes, natural gas deposits, and sewage collection/treatment systems. Manmade sources of H2S typically occur as a result of natural materials containing sulfur (e.g., coal, gas and oil) being refined into industrial products. For a variety of reasons - aesthetics (odor control), health (toxicity), ecological (oxygen depletion in receiving waters), and economic (corrosion of equipment and infrastructure) - sulfide laden wastewaters must be handled carefully and remediated before they can be released to the environment. Typical discharge limits for sulfide are < 1 mg/L. Sulfide Treatment Alternatives There are dozens of alternatives for treating sulfide laden waters, ranging from simple air stripping (for the low levels present in groundwaters) to elaborate sulfur recovery plants (used to treat several tons per day at refineries and coal burning power plants). There are processes based on biology (using compost filters, scrubbing media, or inhibition/disinfection), chemistry (oxidation, precipitation, absorption, and combination), and physics (adsorption, volatilization, and incineration). Each process occupies a niche which is often defined by the scale and continuity of treatment, whether the sulfide is in solution or is a gas, the concentration of sulfide involved, and the disposition of the sulfide containing medium. However, for reasons relating to convenience and flexibility, chemical oxidation (using hydrogen peroxide) continues to grow in its scope of application. Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide While other peroxygens such as permonosulfuric (Caro’s) acid, peracetic acid, and persulfates will oxidize sulfide, their use for this application is overkill. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is considerably simpler and more cost-effective. H2O2 may control sulfides in two ways, depending on the application: Prevention - by providing dissolved oxygen which inhibits the septic conditions which lead to biological sulfide formation; and Destruction - by oxidizing sulfide to elemental sulfur or sulfate ion.
