  • Air scrubber wastewater solution - Water and Wastewater

    Air scrubber wastewater solution

    Air Scrubbers strip out contaminants from exhaust stacks typically by trickling a stream of salt solution through a bed of media to extract contaminants by putting them into solution. The salts found in these solutions are typically sulfates, chlorides, and carbonates. Air Scrubber wastewater tends to have high total dissolved solids (TDS) or salts. Air Scrubber Wastewater cannot be simply flushed down the drain. Many companies choose to avoid the headaches of labor-intensive wastewater treatment technologies...

  • Compressor condensate wastewater treatment - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment

    Compressor condensate wastewater treatment

    Compressor condensate wastewater is generated during hot and humid weather as part of the process of condensing shop air to provide compressed air for machine tools. Typically, these waste streams are transparent with a slight floating layer of oil. Compressor Condensate wastewater cannot be simply flushed down the drain. Many companies choose to avoid the headaches of labor-intensive wastewater treatment technologies such as chemical treatment or filtration and simply pay to haul the wastewater. This however,...

  • Dye penetrant wastewater treatment - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment

    Dye penetrant wastewater treatment

    Dye penetrant wastewater includes the presence of a fluorescent dye at about 2-3% in the wastewater. Dye penetrants are used as a method of testing weld integrity to confirm there are no leaks. Dye Penetrant wastewater cannot be simply flushed down the drain. Many companies choose to avoid the headaches of labor-intensive wastewater treatment technologies such as chemical treatment or filtration and simply pay to haul the wastewater. This however, can become quite expensive.

  • Ink, Paint, and Glue wastewater solution - Water and Wastewater

    Ink, Paint, and Glue wastewater solution

    Ink, Paint, and Glue wastewaters are some of the toughest wastewaters to deal with due to their tendency to coat functional components of the wastewater treatment equipment. This type of wastewater is typically treated in the ENCON Drum Evaporator. Qualification of the waste stream for the Drum Evaporator is performed via a bench scale test in the ENCON laboratory.

  • Landfill leachate wastewater treatment - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment

    Landfill leachate wastewater treatment

    Landfill leachate is the runoff water that occurs from operational or closed landfills. This water flows at lower rates on dry days when naturally occurring moisture percolates out and at higher rates on rainy days when the leachate waters are combined with stormwater.

  • Metal finishing wastewater solution - Water and Wastewater

    Metal finishing wastewater solution

    Metal finishing wastewater is a common application for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. There are many types of wastewater generated in metal finishing. These include vibratory / tumbling wastewater, stamping wastewater, die casting wastewater and polishing wastewater. Metal Finishing wastewater cannot be simply flushed down the drain. Many companies choose to avoid the headaches of labor-intensive wastewater treatment technologies such as chemical treatment or filtration and simply pay to haul the wastewater....

  • Parts cleaning wastewater solution - Water and Wastewater

    Parts cleaning wastewater solution

    Parts cleaning wastewater is a common application for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. Parts cleaning is almost entirely water-based since the Montreal Protocol forced companies to abandon chlorinated fluorocarbons (CFC’s) and solvent degreasers. The wastewater is generally brownish gray and translucent with a soapy appearance. It may have trace settled solids and floating oil.

  • Plating rinse wastewater solution - Water and Wastewater

    Plating rinse wastewater solution

    Plating rinse wastewater is one of the most common applications for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. Wastewater from plating rinse tends to be rather corrosive. The chemistries used in the plating process can include a wide range of acids such as nitric acid, chromic acid, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrofluoric acid, as well as other non-acid chemistries like ammonium bifluoride and nickel sulfamate. Typically, the waste stream has a transparent, relatively clean look because they are dilute and the...

  • Using evaporation to dewater Reverse Osmosis reject waste streams - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment

    Using evaporation to dewater Reverse Osmosis reject waste streams

    Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology has been used for years in various industries to separate dissolved solids from water by forcing the water through a semi-permeable membrane. RO is also commonly used to purify drinking water and desalinate seawater to yield potable water. The water and other molecules with lower molecular weight (specific weight of molecules allowed to pass through is dependent on the selected membrane) pass through the micropores in the membrane, yielding a purified water stream called the...

  • Spent coolant wastewater solution - Water and Wastewater

    Spent coolant wastewater solution

    Waste coolant or spent coolant wastewater is one of the more common applications for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. The most common type of coolant is made up of water-soluble oils, but water-soluble synthetics or semi- synthetics are also used. The coolants are used to cool the tool and part to minimize overheating during machining and grinding applications. The coolant is collected in sumps and continuously recirculated. In time, the coolants break down and become less effective. The coolants, now spent, must...

  • Zero Liquid Discharge wastewater solution - Water and Wastewater

    Zero Liquid Discharge wastewater solution

    Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) describes a process that completely eliminates liquid discharge from a system. The goal of any well-designed ZLD system is to minimize the volume of wastewater that requires treatment, process wastewater in an economically feasible manner, while also producing a clean stream suitable for reuse elsewhere in the facility. Interest in ZLD technology has grown in the industrial manufacturing sector over the past decade. Companies may begin to explore ZLD because of ever tightening...
