Industrial Wastewater Disposal and Treatment Process

ALAR separates solids from water, the sources of which are not limited to: industrial waste, food processing, chemicals, metal finishing, grease and septic, and flexographic ink. Unless properly treated, wastewater can harm public health and the environment.

Wastewater is mostly water by weight. Other materials make up only a small portion of wastewater, but can be present in large enough quantities to endanger public health and the environment.

One of the most common needs in today’s manufacturing environment is sludge dewatering and meeting discharge limits. To achieve individual disposal requirements of industries worldwide, ALAR custom designs and manufactures the most advanced water filtration equipment.

ALAR's Flex-O-Star®, Auto-Vac®, and Micro-Klean™ systems effectively remove solid particles from the sludge, producing clean/dischargeable water along with dewatered dry waste.

Removal of contaminants from water typically involves a two-step separation process:

  1. Chemical Separation
  2. Mechanical Separation

The first step, Chemical Separation, breaks the solids and liquids apart by automatically adding chemical pre-treatments such as pH adjusters, polymers or clays. The second step, Mechanical Separation, physically removes the precipitated solid particles from the sludge through filtration.

ALAR custom builds both the treatment and filtration equipment to provide a complete solution to a variety of applications that include, but are not limited to:
