The mining industry has the potential to use large amounts of wastewater in its operations. Often times these waste streams contain contaminants that require treatment before the water can be re-used or discharged. Biowater has successfully installed highly efficient biofilm treatment processes including our complete mix fixed film (CMFF®) system to remove BOD/COD, and nitrogen from mining waste streams. Biowater’s technologies, such as our CFIC® process, can produce effluent water quality that is...

The Company offers cost-effective solution that allows municipal plants to both increase their treatment capacity and upgrade the effluent quality with minimal civil works.
Automation can save money, optimise a process and give warning of potential breeches of discharge consent. However, instrument selection is fundamentally important if a control system is to function efficiently. The measurement device must accurately and quickly respond to process variations and it must be reliable in operation if the control system is to function as intended. Designed properly, energy and chemical use can be significantly reduced, saving money and ultimately improving effluent quality.
Through experience we have found that when the correct water filtration system is put into place as an integral part of the effluent water treatment process our customers have been able to experience several benefits:- Enabled water to be re-used in other areas of their operations as part of the effluent treatment process.
One of the biggest costs for water-water treatment is energy consumption; the cost of which is likely to escalate with increased demand. Ineffective process control may not only be costly but environmentally impacts though the inefficient use of an un-renewable resource. Furthermore, poor process control in one area may also impinge on neighbouring processes ultimately affecting effluent water quality.
Flexible, turnkey solutions for container cleaning. Cleaning industrial containers such as canisters, vats or IBCs produce large volumes of effluent. The type of impurities in this effluent depends heavily on what has been transported in the containers. That’s why effluent treatment requires a flexible system able to cope with all conceivable contaminants. Reconditioners are increasingly using modern vacuum distillation systems to do this. They work fully automatically, guarantee a high level of process...
Waste water is any water that has been adversely affected in quality by anthropogenic influence. Municipal wastewater is usually conveyed in a combined sewer or sanitary sewer, and treated at a wastewater treatment plant or septic. Treated wastewater is discharged into receiving water via an effluent sewer.
A well-designed wastewater plant starts with your effluent requirements and an energy-efficient biological process. WesTech has multiple biological process options to match your application and preference. From trickling filters to oxidation ditches, WesTech`s biological process equipment will give you the effluent quality you need and the foundation for a successful wastewater plant.
SAF System For Title 22 Wastewater Reclamation / Tertiary Filtration. Heron Innovators manufactures Suspended Air Flotation (SAF) systems for removal of suspended solids from wastewater. SAF solutions are backed up by years of process knowledge and manufacturing ability. This particular project required the removal of specific components – algae and colloidal material – from the pond effluent. The goal was to extend filter cycle times, and achieve <9NTU water clarity prior to filtration for unrestric...
In the marine market, ocean-going vessels and fresh water or inner coastal boats require water treatment technologies to meet drinking water, process water and wastewater requirements. Offshore oil and gas operations and ocean-going vessels generate sewage that can contain contaminants which have a detrimental effect on water quality and the overall marine environment. As a result, marine sewage treatment systems are required to lessen the environmental impact. The MEPC.227(64) effluent standards, adopted by the...
Presence of colouring, additives, nonbiodegradable organic contents or presence of biological process inhibitors. Besides, they are highly corrosive which is why we manufacture our equipments using materials especially adapted to the working conditions. An effluent containing a great quantity of suspended and dissolved organic material.
Paper companies consume large amounts of water in the production process and hence, produce high dumped flow rates. This type of industry also tends to produce the development of filamentous bacteria. The effluent to be treated from wood industries has high loads with elevated solid matter content.
The waste (water) streams from the production of (bio) ethanol or ethanol spirits are generally very suitable for anaerobic treatment, due to their organic compounds. The effluent streams produced by the different production processes are influences by a great number of parameters such as, process design, milling process, type of raw material, etc. This requires special attention in the design of the treatment plant for this type of industry. Typical streams from these industries that can be treated are, whole...
The associated effluents will have a high or low load depending on the specific activity of each company. The processes employed will depend on the output parameters that have to be attained, depending on current legislation.
The food and beverage industry uses water within its production process and for raw material washing, producing large quantities of wastewater. To reduce the water impact index, all the effluents coming from the production process can be reused a second time allowing water saving. IDRAFLOT package flotation units are a technological solution for the separation of suspended solids and oil/fats from a water-based stream.
The water from pharmaceutical companies can cause big troubles because of the high variability in their manufacturing processes. Depending on the kind of raw materials used, the effluents may even be toxic, hence why the most conflictive effluents have to be separated from the rest and not to be sent to the general treatment.
Manufacturing companies today operate in an increasingly challenging environment. These challenges include, meeting environmental obligations, optimizing operational efficiency, and cutting operational and maintenance costs. Additional challenges include, the effects of water scarcity and the increasingly stringent effluent discharge regulations on water-intensive industrial businesses. Effectively managing, reusing and recycling process water and wastewater is one way that has a triple benefit to our industrial...
