Concentrating High-Strength Wastewater for Easier, Cost-Effective Disposal

Processors often find themselves grappling with wastewater streams loaded with high concentrations of dissolved solids, organics, and other contaminants. These high-strength streams cannot simply be discharged or disposed of through typical municipal sewers due to their potent nature. Caloris offers advanced treatment technologies for concentrating high-strength wastewater into a smaller volume.

Disposing of such waste effluents requires special handling and processes, which can be extremely costly if not properly managed. By reducing the overall volume, you minimize disposal costs and make it far easier and more economical to discard the concentrated remnants properly. In certain circumstances, the concentrated solids may have value as animal feed or fertilizer.

At Caloris, we offer proven membrane filtration and evaporation solutions designed specifically for concentrating high-strength industrial wastes like those produced in food processing plants. Our innovative systems significantly reduce wastewater volumes while meeting all environmental regulations.

Membrane filtration utilizes semi-permeable membranes to separate clean water from concentrated waste solids and contaminants. Depending on your unique waste composition, we can deploy specialized membrane configurations to optimize the concentration levels achieved.

For dissolved solids and other difficult waste streams, Caloris evaporation technology provides an efficient means of distilling clean water vapor from wastewater–leaving behind a concentrated liquid residue at just 5-10% of the original volume. Our evaporation systems run reliably with minimal operator intervention required.

Whether you need to process 1,000 gallons per day or 10,000 gallons per hour, Caloris has compact, skid-mounted wastewater concentration systems tailored to your throughput needs. We guide you in selecting the ideal membrane filtration, evaporation or combined solution to cost-effectively manage your toughest high-strength waste challenges.
