  • Wastewater Treatment Process

    The wastewater treatment process is complex and critical to civilization. In simplest terms, wastewater is water that has been mixed with waste matter. Wastewater can be classified as domestic, municipal, or industrial based upon the source of generation. For instance, domestic wastewater comes from everyday liquid waste, including water used to flush the toilet, to shower, or to wash dishes. ...

  • Shrimp Processing Wastewater Treatment

    These jars show the treatibility with Floccin J and wastewater from cooked shrimp. The initial untreated water had a TSS of 1,230 ppm and a BOD of 3,000 ppm. The addition of 0.10 grams of Floccin J in 100ml (8.34 lbs/1,000 gallons) created a tight flock and a very clean effluent water quality. The treated TSS was less than 10 ppm and the BOD was 200 ppm. There was a significant amount of oil ...

  • Peach Processing Wastewater Treatment

    A major fresh pack operation of peaches and nectarines needed a screening system to remove the labels and peach fuzz from their wash water before it was pumped from the pond for irrigation use. Flow to the pond is a steady flow of 50 gpm, rising to 600 gpm during periodic draining of the peach coolers and washing systems. The water is a combination of wash water, labels and fuzz from the fruit, ...

  • Milk Processing Wastewater Treatment

    A milk processing facility was using a 800 hp evaporator to dispose of their 0.75% solids concentrated milk waste stream. The staff was interested in evaluating the effect of using the Floccin products to capture the majority of the BOD and send this higher % solids/BOD sludge to the evaporator. The idea was to reduce the electric hp by reducing the volume of water going to the evaporator. Their ...

  • Cavitational technology in wastewater treatment process

    Cavitation is one such recent technique which has been found to be substantially beneficial in wastewater treatment. Cavitation can be described as formation, growth and sub-sequent collapse of cavities releasing large magnitudes of energy locally, creating conditions similar to hot spots, and also generating strong oxidizing conditions by way of ...

  • Wastewater treatment in a milk-processing company

    Description of the plant The accruing wastewater from the production of cheese and milk products is collected in a centralised pump sump and given to a first pre-treatment step. This step includes a separation of bigger parts by a sieve and a flocculation step with a dissolved air flotation for elimination of fats and cheese particles. After that, the pre-treatened water is buffered ...

  • Integrating anaerobic processes into wastewater treatment

    Over the past decade, the concept of anaerobic processes for the treatment of low temperature domestic wastewater has been introduced. This paper uses a developed wastewater flowsheet model and experimental data from several pilot scale studies to establish the impact of integrating anaerobic process into the wastewater flowsheet. The results demonstrate that, by integrating an expanded granular ...

  • Poultry Processing Facility Wastewater Treatment

    This chicken slaughter and processing facility has a wastewater system that treats 1.2 MGD. Their process uses ferric chloride as the coagulant, caustic to stabilize the pH and an anionic polymer prior to separation in the DAF units. The facility also does some further processing with addition of seasoning and brines which add TDS/EC to the water. The ferric/anionic polymer combination is ...

  • Oily Wastewater Processing Facility Wastewater Treatment Case Study

    Impressive Oil Water Separation This is the result of our Floccin 1105 product treating a sample from an oily wastewater treatment facility. As you can see, the Floccin 1105 was very effective at clarifying the waste as well as capturing all of the oil. These results were achieved with no pH adjustment and minimal Floccin addition (~ 1g/1000ml). The client is going to purchase and ...

  • A comparative treatment of bleaching wastewater by physicochemical processes

    The bleaching effluent discharged from a pulp and paper mill contains chlorinated organic compounds which are toxic to living matter. Physicochemical treatments such as coagulation and different advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) were employed for combined bleaching effluent generated from the first two stages (i.e. chlorination and alkali extraction) (pH = 3.5, chemical oxygen demand (COD) = ...

  • Wastewater Treatment for a soft drink processing company

    Description of the plant The wastewater from production and filling of mineral waters and soft drinks is pre-treated mechanically by a screen and buffered in an aerated mixing and balancing reactor. After equalization of flow and load the wastewater is given to the biological reactors where organic substances as sugar and other organic compounds are decreased by biological activity of ...

  • Domestic wastewater treatment with CEPT-wetlands process

    This study aimed to develop an effective process with less construction and operation cost and with flexibility of meeting different temperature requirements, namely CEPT-construted wetland processes. To reduce the chemical cost for the CEPT process, fly ash was firstly utilised to develop an efficient compound coagulant. The lab-scale experimental results showed that with low Fly Ash Coagulant ...

  • A momentary look on food processing wastewater treatment

    The qualities and volume of wastewater released from food processing industries have created significant concerns for ecologists all over the world. However, the amount and quality of wastewater vary from industry and food processing types. While some food organizations prefer to discharge the wastewater in a particular period, some go for dispatching polluted water all over the year, which has ...

  • Removal of Cryptosporidium by wastewater treatment processes: a review

    Cryptosporidium is a protozoan parasite that infects humans and various animal species. The environmental stability and the low infectious dose of Cryptosporidium facilitate its transmission by water and food. Discharge of untreated wastewater may result in waterborne or foodborne Cryptosporidium outbreaks, therefore a suitable treatment may prevent its ...
