Industrial wastewater is waste water or process water from industry that requires on-site treatment before it can be discharged or reused, or that requires pre-treatment before discharge to a sanitary sewer. Because industrial wastewater characteristics vary widely, the type and degree of treatment will also vary. The types of contaminants and degrees of wastewater strength require a step-wise engineered approach to determine your best options for treatment. Wilson Environmental specializes in industrial wastewater treatment. We provide wastewater consulting, treatability testing, wastewater treatment equipment, treatment system design, treatment system design build and pre-engineered systems and components.
Removing Heavy Metals from Wastewater
The Heavy metals are elements with high atomic weights, such as cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, silver and zinc. Heavy metals are often found in industrial wastewater, and if not removed, can damage living organisms — even at low concentrations — and tend to accumulate in the food chain. Let us help you remove them effectively and affordably.
Oil Water Separation
A standard oil water separator works by gravity separation. The oil water separator provides a wide area where the rate of wastewater flow is reduced significantly to allow the oil droplets a chance to rise to the surface instead of being carried along by the wastewater.
Wastewater Pre-treatment for Lowering BOD & TSS
Are you paying BOD and TSS fees? By lowering biological oxygen demand (BOD) and lowering total suspended solids (TSS), you can also lower fees charged for higher levels.
Industrial Wastewater Treatment Using Clay-based Flocculants
Clay-based flocculants are sodium bentonite clays or calcium bentonite clays that are premixed with various polymers and chemical coagulants. Manufacturers of the clay-based flocculants offer several off the shelf blends for treating industrial wastewater.
Wastewater Treatment for Aerospace and Air Craft Stripping & Painting Operations
Hazardous compounds such as Hexavalent Chrome, Phenol, Methylene Chloride and Formaldehyde are found in aircraft washing, stripping and painting operations, and must be safely removed so that the treated water may be re-used or discharged to the city sewer.
