Heavy Metals Wastewater Treatment System (Chrome Removal): Chromium is present in the wastewaters of a number of industries, including: stainless steel manufacturing, protective coatings on metal, magnetic tapes, chrome plating, tanneries, textile dyes production, pigments and paint production, production of cement, paper, rubber, etc. Chromium is typically precipitated in two steps: reduction and precipitation.
Oil sands or, more technically, bituminous sands, are a type of unconventional petroleum deposit. Oil sands represent a vast wealth of energy reserves for the world rivaling traditional sources in quality, availability and the ability to meet the world`s needs for many years into the future. The technologies for extraction of this resource are increasingly efficient, and WesTech has worked with several companies on the leading edge of these efforts and is a ready partner for new projects and plant upgrades.
Cold Lime Softening: Hard water is water that has high mineral content. The name comes from the hard scale that forms when this water is boiled. It is not harmful to human health, but in the industrial setting it causes costly breakdowns in boilers, cooling towers, and other water handling equipment. The divalent cations Mg and Ca are the most frequently found minerals causing hard water. These ions enter water supplies by leaching from minerals in underground aquifers.
Sedimentation, flotation, mixing, pulp separation and chemical recovery systems are among the myriad of process equipment WesTech supplies to the pulp and paper industry. Customized to the unique needs of operating plants, WesTech liquid/solids and liquid/liquid separation expertise is built upon years of working with plant operators and owners. The result is a working relationship and reliable process.
Modern Portland cement is made by mixing substances containing lime, silica, alumina, and iron oxide and then heating the mixture until it almost fuses. During the heating process dicalcium and tricalcium silicate, tricalcium aluminate, and a solid solution containing iron are formed. X-ray Fluorescence (XRF), a standard technique across the cement industry, is used to determine metal-oxide concentrations and oxide stoichiometry. The Rigaku NEX CG advanced Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer,...
Countercurrent Decantation (CCD): Rock passes into a dump hopper and is then transferred to a vibrating grizzly screen. The oversized material is sent to a jaw crusher. The crushed product is combined with the grizzly undersize and the ore is conveyed to the coarse ore bin.
Envirotac line of polymers have been used to construct roads around the world. Our polymers cross link the soils at a nano level creating a tough durable surface that will stand up to Heavy Haul trucks and the daily grind of vehicular traffic. If you are using Chlorides, Lignin`s, or Enzymes, make the switch to a superior road stabilizing technology.
Wet scrubber sludges are dewatered and washed with K-S Rotary Drum Vacuum Filters and K-S Horizontal Vacuum Filters to produce dry filter cake and marketable by-product gypsum. Continuous operation, minimal operator attention, and low maintenance cost make vacuum filtration an ideal choice.
The K-S Rotary Atomizer produces optimum reagent (lime slurry) droplet size in dry (semi-dry) scrubbers used for acidic flue gas neutralization. The K-S direct drive design provides the reliability needed in this critical...

Many industries are aware of the opportunities to recover valuable resources from process and bleed streams. This combines creating revenues from waste streams with environmental sustainability. Even low concentrations of dissolved base metals can be economically recovered.
The treatment of raw material, the supply of local energy, and the core production process in the pulp and paper industry means a wide range of wet and dry applications for DISAB vacuum system solutions in the pursuit of reduced downtime, improved quality, and the recycling of valuable material.
High quality paper, coupled with lower production costs, is the formula for profitable paper making. Accurate and reliable metering of additives and colors is a necessity for today’s successful paper maker.
The best reason for the use of Albin Pump Hose pumps in this industry is the low maintenance of the pump. This industry readily accepts an average hose life of 1,500 - 3,000 hours in continuous duty and this hose life will provide much lower maintenance costs and repair time than with other pumps.
The chemical industry has some of the most demanding pumping requirements there are. This industry routinely has to pump aggressive and corrosive fluids that include slurries, suspended solids, and abrasive materials. Peristaltic hose pumps have no seals or stuffing boxes that present challenges and added costs. Because the reinforced hose inner liner is the only component in contact with the pumped fluid, an Albin peristaltic hose pump offers the lowest life cycle cost compared to other pump technologies....
Lime slurry can be easily applied to rough terrain with a fine spray, minimizing waste and dust migration while providing a much safer, cost effective alternative. Flue gas treatment for industrial facilities and hazardous waste incinerators.
Lime treatment has several beneficial effects on soils and industrial sludge wastes that in turn provide benefits to other commercial sectors such as agriculture, landfill operations and land development.

As a primary industry, the mining industry faces the needs for optimizing the management of its resources. Exploration and excavation activities should be as efficient as possible. Companies also aim to maintain water resources while at the same time controlling the environmental impact of their activities.
