Electroplating

ELECTROPLATING PILOT STUDY Application Electroplating is a widely used process across many industries. Electroplating companies create wastewater containing heavy metals and activated carbon particles which cannot be directly discharged or sent to the local POTW without proper treatment. The challenge is that the wastewater contains very high suspended solids, and the polymeric membranes currently in…

Anaerobic Digester

Anaerobic Digester Pilot Study Application On average, a brewery will produce 3 barrels of wastewater for each barrel brewed. Brewery wastewater includes high biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), high chemical oxygen demand (COD) and high total suspended solids (TSS), which cannot be disposed to the public sewer system when produced in high quantity. A common way…

Vibratory Wastewater

VIBRATORY WASTEWATER CASE STUDY Application: Rinse water from vibratory finishing processes contains heavy metals, chemicals and oil & grease. The wastewater cannot be discharged into the public sewer system, and requires to either be disposed of with specialized waste management companies or be treated onsite. Waste management companies are very expensive, thus used by companies…

Algae Dewatering

ALGAE DEWATERING PILOT STUDY Application: Nutrient (nitrogen and phosphorus) pollution is one of America’s most widespread, costly and challenging environmental problems, stated The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Consequently, wastewater containing high amounts of nutrients cannot be disposed without first being treated. Current means to remove nutrients involve the use of chemicals and additional…

Automotive Collision Center

AUTOMOTIVE COLLISION CENTER CASE STUDY Application: Automotive collision centers create wastewater that can have a bad impact on the environment if not properly managed.  Contaminants in wastewater include oil and grease, metals, detergents, phosphates, chemicals, etc. One of the largest automotive collision centers in North Carolina needed a wastewater treatment system before their opening in…

PROTECT+ion Extends Life of Shaker System

PROTECT+ION EXTENDS LIFE OF SHAKER SYSTEM Application The Electrodynamic Vibration Test System developed an issue with high conductivity of the cooling water, causing a lot of corrosion and a yearly replacement of expensive components within the shaker system. Our Ion Exchange Filter (IEX), PROTECT+ion, keeps the conductivity low and therefore prevent corrosion. Operation Conditions Filtration…
