The metalworking industry faces challenging operating conditions on many fronts. Material types are changing; runs are shorter and use a wider range of materials, and coolant types, concentration, and volume change as tooling changes. In addition to these operating dynamics, metalworking companies are also facing changing requirements from publically operated treatment works (POTW). The increasingly stringent requirements cause a rise in handing, haul-away, and treatment. For these reasons, metalworking companies are seeking alternatives to hauling away wastewater.
Industrial Wastewater treatment methods are chemical or mechanical. Chemical treatment methods are an initial lower cost option; however for most metalworking applications the constant monitoring and chemical additive adjustments required to maintain proper discharge or reuse levels become difficult to manage. Hiring this service out to a professional company to manage also becomes costly.
We believe most industrial wastewater treatment applications in the metalworking industry are best served by mechanical filtration as the main method of treatment. We offer the broadest line of equipment designed to handle a full-spectrum of filtration levels. Each level of filtration can work alone or in a series as needed to achieve required cleanliness.
