Industrial wastewater is a byproduct of commercial production and manufacturing processes across many industries, from metalworking to food and beverage production. These industries employ a wide range of processes. As a result, their effluent and waste streams carry a dizzying array of pollutants: microorganisms, heavy metals, chemicals, organic compounds, suspended and dissolved solids, proteins, oils, dirt, and more. This makes disposal or reuse a challenge.
There are innumerable filtration and purification approaches. Each has its strengths and notable weaknesses, especially when dealing with variable influent flow and sludge content. A solution that efficiently captures contaminants and dewaters sludge today may seem to abruptly stop performing tomorrow. You need flexible, cost-effective solutions—and a strategy for monitoring those solutions and making adjustments before they tip into failures.
With Trucent’s wastewater purification technologies and services, your wastewater’s cost and burden can be significantly lowered. On-site wastewater treatment can save money and help your plant remain environmentally compliant. Removing the contaminants means lower waste transportation costs, easier reuse of treated water, and increased safe disposal of water into the municipal water treatment system.
A Process-Oriented Approach to Industrial Wastewater
The secret to keeping your wastewater treatment facility running efficiently is to go upstream in your process and attack potential UF foulants before they reach your wastewater treatment facility’s ultrafiltration banks. Our approach is to identify each membrane foulant and implement a cost-effective way to remove it before it enters the waste stream.
To do this, we draw from an arsenal of filtration strategies and separation equipment (e.g., non-disposable media filtration, centrifuges and separators, membranes, flocculation). The teams using these tools understand fluid separation and chemistry at a fundamental level—and understand your specific fluids, processes, and industry. Then, just before the stream reaches your ultrafiltration membranes, we can add additional dialysis on your UF concentration tank, removing oils and particulate foulants that may have bypassed the upstream point source approach.
Finally, we can help you manage the waste streams generated during this process. When managed properly, ultrafiltration can be a highly effective, efficient, and effortless finishing step in your wastewater treatment process.
And we can go one step further. Our operations team can maintain the entire solution on an ongoing basis. With the largest fleet of separation assets, including ultrafiltration in North America, we are ready to take care of your needs as they arise.
No one else offers this level of comprehensive service for wastewater purification.
Every solution begins with a conversation. Contact us today to begin that conversation, or to schedule a no-obligation on-site consultation. We’ll walk your entire plant, sampling fluids throughout, then take them back for lab analysis before designing your solution. We’ll trial that solution at your site with your membrane system or ours to be sure it is proven out in the real world before you commit to it.
Wastewater Treatment Systems, Solutions, & Services
Proper wastewater handling can significantly reduce costs—once you have the right solution in place. We can help you with your existing centrifuge—or design an entirely new sludge dewatering system. We can install one piece of equipment, or connect you with your team of service technicians for long-term support. The goals remain the same: effective, efficient, trouble-free wastewater treatment.
Many of the problems associated with dirty or contaminated oil can be solved through onsite centrifugal purification to purify oil. This technology can positively impact production, quality, costs, waste disposal, and environmental issues.
In this case, the emergency oil remediation service saved $17,300 in oil costs, reduced downtime and saved tooling and allowed for continued production.
