Concrete production applications require ongoing wastewater treatment in order to keep operations running. Not only is wastewater treatment necessary to stay within regulatory guidelines, but excess waste can reduce profits, slow down operations, and can lead to environmental harm/damage.
The Basics of Mining Wastewater Treatment is an important topic for most mining operations. Used in mineral processing to recover valuable metals from ore, water is essential to the mining industry. However, using water in this way causes mineral contaminants and other solids to accumulate in your process water supply.
In the past, dry screening was very common and accepted. Today, to meet the needs of advancing world markets, there are now better options. For mining Companies using washing and scrubbing for materials, they can ensure they are producing a silt free product.
A filter press is one of the oldest and most trusted pieces of dewatering equipment. A filter press is used for wastewater treatment across a variety of industries and applications. A filter press works by separating out solids from liquids, removing impurities, and suspended solids from industrial wastewater. This allows plant managers to easily handle and dispose of waste while returning clean water to their systems.
Many industrial plants and facilities use or create wastewater with their processes. The wastewater can be discharged, based on local regulations and permit requirements, or re-used within their process. Most likely in all cases, the water needs to be treated to some degree to meet quality characteristics or regulatory requirements – often referred to as wastewater pretreatment.
The affordability of a Filter Press is a concern for many of our customers, can a Filter Press be affordable. Finding the correct equipment to fuel your operation can sometimes be a difficult task especially for smaller operations with a limited capital budget. Historically, to deal with wastewater, a lot of capital investment was required to keep the plant running smoothly, engineers were hired, and a lot of chemicals were employed.
It is hard to recall the last time this question did not come up during conversations with a customer. “If I buy your equipment, how much is the all-in cost; everything from labor to the price of equipment, and everything in between?” Every job is different and filtering press dewatering solutions are highly engineered and customized to meet each requirement of the customer which makes this question a bit tricky to answer. But generally, we have come up with some basic rules of thumb that will help anyone understand what costs they can expect for each stage of the process to purchase and install a Dewatering Filter Press.
