Why Treat Wastewater?

Aug 03, 2016

Wastewater, also written as waste water, is any water that has been adversely affected in quality by human influence.

Industrial wastewater treatment covers the workings and process used to treat water that has been contaminated in some way by industrial activities prior to its release into the environment or its reuse.

Most industries produce some wastewater although recent trends in the populated world have been to minimize such production or recycle such wastewater within the production. However, many industries remain prone to processes that produce wastewater and have a need to obtain very high quality water for demanding purposes.

There are several different types of wastewater treatment equipment available; two most known are the rotary vacuum filter and the plate and frame filter press.

Alar builds the: 1) Auto-Vac Rotary Vacuum Drum Filter; 2) Micro-Klean Plate and Frame Filter Press; 3) Flex-O-Star Solid Liquid Separation System; 4) and the Slurry-Klean Automatic Plate-n-Frame Filter Press.

The Alar systems work remarkably well in many industries; Concrete, Flexographic Printing, Food & Dairy, Grease & Septic, Metal Finishing, Paint & Coatings, Oil Rig Drilling Mud, Flowback and Produced Water as well as many other industries.

Wastewater treatment applications include but not limited to: Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Metals, Fat Oil & Grease (FOG), Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), pH (potential Hydrogen).
