From Waste to Water: Our Industrial Wastewater Treatment Process

How distracted are you by problems with your facility’s industrial wastewater treatment process? As trends for cheese and whey production show steady growth in the market, one indirect consequence is that more water is required for processing these dairy products.

More process water also means an increase in industrial wastewater to be dealt with. Dairy industrial wastewater treatment presents unique challenges due to its high concentration of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), suspended solids and fluctuating pH values. Local wastewater treatment plants are becoming stricter about how much wastewater discharge and set discharge limits on specific parameters such as BOD. When regulations are not met, fines are levied on a regular basis until the issue is fixed.

Our Industrial Wastewater Treatment Process

Caloris has superior process technology with benefits for industrial wastewater treatment in the dairy industry, among others. The CALORIS CONCENTRIX® and CALORIS CUBIX® are industrial evaporators that can handle all types of wastewater streams. These evaporators are compact, energy efficient and have been proven in the field. In addition to our industrial wastewater evaporators, Caloris builds skidded membrane systems that can polish condensate from evaporators for water reuse and concentrate wastewater streams to reduce their volume before discharge.

Benefits of these industrial wastewater treatment system solutions include:

  • Increased water reuse, which saves money through reduced wastewater surcharges and water costs
  • Reduced truck hauling costs
  • Meeting stricter regulations
  • Reduced carbon and water footprint
  • Achieving corporate social responsibility sustainable goals
