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