Our technologies provide site-optimized small-footprint solutions that can:

  • Reduce Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
  • Reduce particulate Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)
  • Reduce particulate Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
  • Reduce sewer surcharge fees
  • Reduce loading on expensive wastewater treatment systems such as Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) and anaerobic digesters and maximize their treatment efficiency and capacity
  • Reduce hauling costs and volume of waste materials to create additional use options or reduce disposal costs
  • Replace primary clarification / sedimentation systems in 1/10th the footprint and use half the operating energy
  • Recover by-product materials for re-sale, re-use / re-purposing or electricity generation
  • Maximize the efficiency of water reclamation, recycling, and re-use
  • Remove fine particles and sediment from flow streams
  • Protect downstream processing equipment

What is Industrial Wastewater Treatment?

Most industrial processes use water, and many of them use significant amounts of it. Many types of factory activities such as plant cleaning, material conveying, bottling, and product washing create wastewater. For many industrial facilities this can lead to a tremendous amount of wastewater that needs to be treated before it can be sent to a sewer system, land applied, or discharged into waterways. Wastewater from industrial processing often requires on-site treatment before it can be discharged to prevent or reduce sewer surcharge fees.

The type of industry and specific operational practices determine what types of wastewater is generated and what type of treatment is required. Reducing solids such as waste product, organic materials, and sand is often a goal of industrial wastewater treatment. Some common ways to reduce solids include primary sedimentation (clarification), Dissolved Air Flotation or (DAF), belt filtration, and screening. 

Industrial wastewater processing is a critical operational factor for a broad spectrum of industries. Common to most industrial applications is the creation of wastewater. Even with the strictest water efficiency measures in place and all efforts made to recycle it, wastewater is inevitable. When onsite treatment equipment is needed, Hydro International offers industry leading, liquid-solids separation solutions to solve many of your most challenging wastewater issues.

Our screening and pretreatment equipment is unmatched in reducing loads on your other wastewater treatment processes, recovering by-product, and lowering or preventing sewer surcharge fees and can help with water reuse.
