Are you looking for a more efficient wastewater treatment process for your mining operation? ChemREADY’s online ROI Calculator can help you determine if a custom dewatering solution is right for you.
As businesses prepare for the new year ahead, now is the perfect time to rethink your water treatment plan. With new water treatment technologies and solutions becoming more readily available, it’s a good time to re-visit how to optimize your water treatment plan.
Azoles are used in Water Treatment because they are structured ringed organic molecules which act as corrosion inhibitors for copper and copper alloys in cooling water management plans. If you’re involved with cooling towers or water treatment, you’ve likely heard of Azoles before. Because of the copper alloys used in cooling systems due to their ability to transfer heat efficiently, azoles are used to protect these alloys from potential corrosion.
What is a filter press and how does it work? A filter press is one of the oldest and most trusted pieces of dewatering equipment. They’re 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. Want to learn how the technology or filtration equipment works or how it could help your operation? In this Water Facts, we'll examine these details further.
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.
With so many options for alkalinity adjustment in wastewater treatment, it is hard to know which one truly works the best. There are three main options that are typically represented in the marketplace for Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTP) when faced with this question: magnesium hydroxide, lime slurry, and caustic soda.
