Solutions for Your Facility: Industrial Waste Water Treatment Plant Design

Industrial waste water filtration systems are a specialty of Caloris. Maybe you are seeking to reduce the volume of wastewater you are sending to your local municipality, saving you money and helping the environment. Perhaps you want to reuse process water within your plant, conserving a valuable resource. Or you could be interested in recouping valuable product from your waste stream like cleaning chemicals or similar. Our waste water filtration systems may be the answer.

Industrial waste water treatment plant design involves a number of factors. First, we need to determine the makeup of your wastewater feed. If you do not have a comprehensive analysis of the material, we can help arrange for lab testing.

Questions to consider for your industrial waste water treatment plant design:

  • What is your desired result of wastewater treatment (% solids, etc.)?
  • What parameters for disposal have been dictated by your municipal facility?
  • Do you want to concentrate the solids to a powder for disposal?
  • Do you want to reuse the resulting clean water condensate in your facility’s processes?
  • Are there any products in your wastewater stream that you wish to recover for reuse (CIP chemicals, etc.)?

Once we have the answers to these questions, the next step is to run trials on samples of your wastewater feed. This helps us determine which evaporator, membrane filtration system, dryer of combination thereof will work best for you. Caloris has a suite of pilot testing equipment available for this purpose. All units can be shipped to customer plants for on-site testing or you can send us the samples for testing at our warehouse facility.

Additional Industrial Waste Water Treatment Plant Design Factors

Caloris engineers will survey your existing facility (if applicable) to determine the size restrictions for the equipment to be installed. We have many compact options to choose from. If you are planning a new facility, we will work with your architects to make sure the design will accommodate the waste water treatment system.

Is your need temporary? Caloris has several units available for rent or you may wish to invest in a CALORIS AGILIX™ Mobile Evaporator, which is perfect for temporary needs or for treating wastewater in multiple locations.
