Water is on our minds. Increased instances of drought and fracking and a growing population have exacerbated the concerns. This worry is enhanced in the industrial world.
Be in refineries, chemical plants, or construction sites, water is used on a regular basis. In its different uses, it gathers dust, debris, and other items during circulation. This detritus congeals and becomes a sludge. The more sludge in the water, the less liquid which can be saved.
This liquid, in the form of waste water, can be reused by the industry for other operations. Or, it is sent to water treatment plants. There, it is purified and utilized for irrigation and other land uses. So, dewatering sludge is of great importance.
There are many companies, like Sandling Industrial Services, which handle the process of sludge dewatering for all industries. To do this, they incorporate sophisticated methods into their belt filter presses, centrifuges, and chamber filter presses. These mechanisms separate solids from liquids in an efficient manner as possible.
In some situations, companies are hesitant to invest in these machines. They feel the amount of dewatering required won’t match their Return on Investment (ROI). However, in the end, whatever investment they make will help out their bottom line.
It comes down to recycling and lowering their carbon footprint. As long as the liquid removed isn’t toxic, the dewatering process can be a purifying agent. Not to the point of potable, but certainly reusable as an agent. If water needs to be trucked in, the dewatering process helps lower costs of transportation.
These machines don’t need to be purchased outright. They can be rented for time needed. This is helpful for construction agencies in a temporary area. The machinery can be rented for the time needed. Then, when the project is over, the waste water can be transported away and the machinery returned.
To do this for your own company takes a simple step of research. Contact other industries in your area which have used De-watering organizations to see what they have done. Next, make a few calls to have them come out and review your area. When they see your operations they can determine the size and nature of the equipment. They’ll also offer a quote on rental versus outright purchase.
