For any small to larger sized business where wastewater is an issue, finding an effective way to address wastewater regulations in your area is always a concern. This is true in any type of food and beverage manufacturing, in industrial processing and manufacturing and in the beer, wine and spirit industries as well.
Traditionally, wastewater is sent into tanks and then taken off to specific dump sites. This is a costly process, and depending on the volume of wastewater produced it can have a significant impact on the cost of doing business.
The Dewatering Solution
A better and more cost-effective consideration is to add dewatering equipment at your site, allowing the treatment of the effluent water to allow treated wastewater to be disposed of in the sewer system or over the ground while staying with all disposal and environmental regulations and requirements.
The tank, which is typically a roll-off tank design, allows the treated and clean water to run off while retaining the sludge that contains contaminants and solids. This material, depending on the makeup of the wastewater and the particles in the water, can then be disposed of in a designated dump location or, in many cases, sold as agricultural compost.
Once a company has dewatering equipment, they are able to also provide wastewater processing for other businesses in the area. This can generate a passive income for the company that can offset the cost of disposal of the sludge.
Choosing the best quality of dewatering equipment is important. A well designed and constructed system is extremely low maintenance and can quickly pay for itself by saving on the cost of dumping services. These are systems that have been built to last, even with ongoing use and high volume dewatering requirements for businesses across all industries.
