Industrial Process Water and Wastewater System
Process Wastewater Distillation / Stripping. Many industrial and pharmaceutical processes generate wastewater with volatile contaminants that increase the chemical and biochemical oxygen demand (COD and BOD) to a point where discharging to municipal wastewater is very costly or not an option. MEGTEC stripping and distillation columns can remove and recover many contaminants and solvents, including ammonia, hydrocarbons, ketones and alcohols. The wastewater can be suitable for discharge to most municipal wastewater treatment plants and, in many cases, the removed components can be further purified and reused in the process.
