Latex Paint Manufacturer-3
Integrated Engineers, Inc. did the following treatability on the wastewater produced at a Latex Paint manufacturing facility. The treatments required no pH adjustment. The best product was treated with 0.3 grams of Floccin-K in a 100 ml sample and required moderate mixing (1 minute). The dosage equates to a treatment of 25 lbs/1,000 gallons. At an end consumer price of $2.00/lb., the treatment costs will be about $50/1,000 gallons = 5 cents/gallon if flocculation alone, less if preozonation steps are taken. The water can be reused in this industry for make up water in the concrete admixture.
