The clarification of wastewater can be a real challenge. The objective in proper wastewater control is to remove the harmful impurities so that the system will function properly and the disposed water will meet various regulations in environmental control.

Jar Study Programs
Wastewater usually contains a broad spectrum of impurities- substances in suspension, both colloidal and dissolved. Jar studies, which are chemical tests run on samples using various controls, are conducted during the initial phases to determine the most effective means of clarification. Water Conditioning, Inc. conducts jar studies at the job site and/or collects samples for extended laboratory studies.

Coagulant Aid Programs
The initial stages of clarification often require the use of coagulants. Coagulants facilitate the binding of the charged particles so that precipitation can occur.

Flocculent Aid Programs
Flocculants facilitate the joining process of particles. Often depending on system requirements, flocculants are frequently added in conjunction with coagulants to enhance the precipitation of the impurities. When used together, the two often provide a more potent combination in complex situations. Water Conditioning, Inc. initiates the use of flocculants for wastewater clarification.

Polymer Programs
Polymer usage in wastewater continues to expand. They are often used in conjunction with other materials to improve clarification and de-water sludge. Polymers are beneficial in that they reduce volume of sludge and cost of disposal. Water Conditioning, Inc. conducts tests, studies and evaluates systems to determine the most effective means of clarification.

Odor Control Programs
Water Conditioning, Inc. utilizes special chemicals for odor control because many industries and waste treatment facilities have to control various odors. There are many procedures used to correct this problem. Chlorine dioxide and chlorine dioxide generators are often employed in some types of odor programs due to their cost effectiveness and quality of performance. Of course, Water Conditioning, Inc. studies the systems, odor characteristics, and conditions as well as regulations so that we can design a custom program to fit the specific needs of the facility.

Pollution prevention is the ultimate result of any good waste treatment program. Federal and state requirements need to be known and addressed so that the environment can stay as healthy as possible. We at Water Conditioning, Inc. take our responsibility to protect our natural resources very seriously. The programs we propose should never result in less than the best results for the preservation of our environment.
