What is TSS in Wastewater?
Aug 02, 2016
What Are They?
TSS are solid materials, including organic and inorganic, that are suspended in the water. These would include silt, plankton and industrial wastes.
Where Do They Come From?
Suspended solids can result from erosion from urban runoff and agricultural land, industrial wastes, bank erosion, bottom feeders, algae growth or wastewater discharges.
ALAR's Wastewater Treatment Systems 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.
Wastewaster 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.
ALAR's Wastewater Treatment Systems effectively remove solid particles from the sludge, producing clean/dischargeable water along with dewatered dry solids.
