Paint & Coatings Wastewater Treatment

Worldwide commercial production and manufacturing increases the levels of hazardous wastewater. ALAR Engineering Corporation provides a full line of industrial paint and coatings wastewater pretreatment, chemical and mechanical dewatering filter solutions.

A wide variety of paint and coating manufacturers and industries performing paint and coating operations are regulated by effluent guidelines that cover wastewater discharge. The water-based paint process wastewater is often discharged into a Publicly Operated Treatment Works (POTW’s). Some companies opt to pay an industrial liquid waste hauler to dispose of the wastewater; usually at a high cost.

Environmental regulatory agencies established pretreatment programs in order for municipalities to perform permitting, administrative and enforcement tasks. These programs are designed to protect the POTW’s infrastructure and reduce toxic pollutant levels of wastewater discharged by the metal finishing industry into municipal sewer systems and the environment.

The wastewater from manufacturing water-based paint and coatings or from industrial facilities that utilize the product, typically contains color (pigments and dyes), heavy metals and suspended solids. The industrial user may also generate wastewater containing trace oils, and/ or adhesives.

To comply with effluent guidelines, an industrial facility needs to review the category of wastewater pollutants discharged, the wastewater treatment technologies, and management techniques used to control these discharges (including landfill disposal).

ALAR Engineering Corporation is a direct-manufacturer of chemical treatment and mechanical dewatering equipment for the Paint and Coating Industry. ALAR’s industrial wastewater technology can integrate into an operation as a complete system or retrofit to existing machinery. These custom-built systems specialize in meeting environmental discharge and disposal compliance regulations for: Metals, Oil & Grease (FOG), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), and pH.

ALAR Engineering designs and builds proven wastewater treatment systems that produce cost effective results and environmental compliance. ALAR provides access to a full line of continuous flow or batch chemical pretreatment, mechanical liquid-solid separation, and sludge dewatering equipment. Let ALAR guide your industrial facility in determining which method offers the best solution.
