Industrial Treatment Strategies


  1. Volume of daily flow
  2. All biological and chemical characteristics of the wastewater, including biodegradability, toxic material content and any material covered by specific environmental regulations
  3. Regulations of the local health department and federal or state Environmental Protection Agency

Typical Solutions:

  1. Site-specific applied equipment such as Bio-Dynamic tablet feeders for disinfection and dechlorination of cooling tower discharge

  2. Site-specific applications for reducing the organic strength, such as Modulair or Travalair wastewater treatment systems used in conjunction with food processing plants

  3. Other site-specific equipment designed by a consulting engineer to treat, recover or otherwise remove specific material

  4. Following pretreatment to remove or control specific characteristics, the wastewater is often conveyed to a municipal collection system for final treatment and disposal

Our treatment systems are designed in accordance with the guidelines set forth in RECOMMENDED STANDARDS FOR WASTEWATER FACILITIES, commonly known as "Ten State Standards."

System Description

Industrial systems treat wastewater from an industrial or manufacturing process such as a cooling tower, food or animal processing plant or any type of manufacturing process that generates wastewater.  The treatment process and equipment is specifically directed to control or remove certain organic or chemical compounds. The flow may or may not contain domestic wastewater and ranges from several hundred to several million GPD.  Industrial applications can present challenges that are specific to the plant or process. Maintenance on these systems is always mandatory and contains specific performance parameters.
