Technologies Used for Industrial Water Treatment Solutions

Wastewater management is an essential step in your manufacturing facility’s EPA compliance. However, some wastewater technologies work better than others for industrial water treatment. If your industrial facility does not use the best filtration technology in the industry, you risk violating essential EPA guidelines. 

At Washington Stormwater, we utilize various wastewater solutions for industrial facilities. Read on to learn more about our highly advanced industrial water treatment solutions, then contact our team to schedule your on-site water filtration consultation. 

Industrial Water Treatment: The Basics

Industrial facilities produce extensive wastewater every day from their manufacturing processes. This water cannot simply return to surface waters untouched. Instead, it must undergo treatment processes to remove pollutants and contaminants that could harm the surrounding surface waters. 

Water treatment technologies use various processes to decontaminate the water before returning it to the ecosystem. Most industrial facilities use on-site wastewater 

plants to ensure the water is free from contaminants before leaving the facilities. Typically, these technologies use several methods to filter different pollutants from the water. 

Types of Industrial Water Treatment Solutions

Over time, researchers have developed numerous processes to filter contaminants from water. Different contaminants require different filtration methods, so industrial facilities often combine several treatment solutions into their water treatment facilities. 

At Washington Stormwater, our water treatment solutions use several advanced processes to remove impurities from industrial wastewater. A few of our most common techniques include: 

  • Reverse Osmosis: Uses a semi-permeable membrane or synthetic lining to filter large particles from water, such as salt, dirt, and chlorine.
  • Primary Ion Exchange: Percolates water through porous beads, then exchanges ions in the water for ions adhered to the beads 
  • Nanofiltration: Separates liquid through a membrane, also to reverse osmosis
  • Dealkalization: Exchanges carbonate ions for chloride ions 

Chitosan-Enhanced Sand Filtration (CESF)

Our most advanced industrial water treatment solutions use chitosan-enhanced sand filtration (CESF). This process uses chitosan, derived from crab shells, to attract the particulates in contaminated water. 

Adding even a small amount of chitosan to turbid water can effectively separate the contaminants and leave the water cleaner than drinking water. However, our systems utilize the optimal amounts of chitosan combined with pressurized sand filtration to clean and filter industrial wastewater reliably.
