Designed to remove extensive contamination, our heavy-duty, multi-stage, discharge treatment systems treat wash water so it can be safely discharged to the sewer or, in many cases, the surroundings.

Stage 1 – Solids Settling 

Multi-Media Sewer Discharge Water Treatment

Almost all commercial washing operations produce some solids so the first stage of our filtration process is the solids handling system. We help you develop site-specific solutions to eliminate as many solids as possible before running the water through to the next stage of filtration. Solutions include custom-designed sumps, basins, trenches or screening systems.

Stage 2 – Oils & Solids Separation 

After the coarse solids settling, the water is processed through either a multi-compartment stainless steel oil water separator or a stainless steel clarifier oil-water separator, which separates out smaller suspended solids, oil and water. In the first compartment of the clarifier oil water separator, free oils float to the surface.  In the second section, the stainless steel clarifying plates remove coarse amounts of oil from the waste stream and remove as much Total Suspended Solids (TSS) as possible.  The angles of the non-clogging plates are 55° which will allow any solids to slide down the plates into the solids hopper, where they can easily be pumped out.   Finally, the coalescing media removes essentially 100% of all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils so the FOG effluent concentration can be as low as 5 ppm.

Stage 3 – Water Filtration & Polishing

After the clarifier oil-water separator, the water is pumped though a multi-media (sand, gravel, anthracite) filter and then safely discharged to the sewer or surroundings. Processed water passing through the system will be free of substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds with only limited soaps and detergents remaining in the treated water. If needed, a blended activated carbon or a carbon/clay mixture tailored to a particular waste stream can be added as an optional polishing filter.

Robustly designed and manufactured for commercial and industrial washing applications, our heavy-duty, multi-stage, closed loop treatment systems treats the wash water so it can be used continuously without any discharge to the sewer or surroundings.

Stage 1 – Solids Settling

Wash Water Treatment System For Commercial Trucking Industry
Many companies choose to haul this water away, but a more efficient way of removing this cost is by recycling and reusing the water.

Many commercial washing operations produce a generous amount of solids so the first stage of our filtration process is the solids handling system. We help you develop site-specific solutions to eliminate as many solids as possible before running the water through to the next stage of filtration. Solutions include custom-designed sumps, basins, trenches or screening systems.

Stage 2 – Oils & Solids Separation 

Truck Wash Water Treatment System
Our Commercial Truck Wash Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems, engineered and manufactured for the trucking and transportation industries.

After the coarse solids settling, the water is processed through a multi-compartment stainless steel clarifier oil-water separator, which separates out smaller suspended solids, oil and water. In the first compartment, free oils float to the surface.  In the second section, the stainless steel clarifying plates remove coarse amounts of oil and as much Total Suspended Solids (TSS) as possible.  The angles of the non-clogging plates are 55° which allows solids to slide down the plates into the solids hopper, where they can easily be pumped out.   Next, the water goes through our coalescing media which removes essentially 100% of all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils so the FOG effluent concentration can be as low as 5 ppm.

Stage 3 – Water Filtration, Odor Reduction & Polishing

After the clarifier oil-water separator, the water is pumped though several filtration steps including multi-media (sand, gravel, anthracite), blended activated carbon, polishing filter, and corona discharge ozone. These filters reduce odors and any contaminants to fewer than 10 microns in size, including emulsified oils, waxes, and other volatile organic compounds. The amount of media, carbon, ozone and water storage volume are typically customized to meet your particular application.

demucking-treatment-system-1280x529-1280x529.png

We have developed a revolutionary heavy-duty wash and treatment system by integrating our demucking system with our clarifier oil water separator system.

Using low flow pumps, moderate pressure and specialized nozzles, our robustly- designed demucker systems can quickly clean large trucks, tracked vehicles or any heavy equipment caked with mud, clay, ice, or muck – using only 20 gpm of water.

After washing, we can then process this water through our stainless steel clarifier oil water separator to reduce your environmental liabilities. Even though full of solids, oils and grease, our separator will effectively treat this wash water for re-use or discharge. 

Fast and effective cleaning with low water treatment costs – definitely a win-win situation!

MM Series Water Filtration System
MM Series Water Filtration System

The MM-Series Water Treatment System is a complete self-contained, extremely efficient filtration system consisting of a fully automated multi-media filter and carbon polishing filter.

Processed water is initially filtered to contain no particles greater than 40 microns in size. It is then filtered further so that it is free of substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds. Limited soaps and detergents may remain in the treated water. Processed water shall be acceptable to discharge to the sewer.   The carbon or carbon clay mixture can be tailored to meet specific local effluent requirements and adjusted based on the testing results.

The filters are programmed to automatically backwash back to the wash bay using domestic water. It is designed to be simple to operate but very effective in its ability to meet today’s environmental requirements.

STANDARD FEATURES:

  •  Automated Self-Cleaning Multi-Media Deep Bed Filter
  •  Carbon polishing filter
  •  Tailored media to meet compliance standards
  •  High Efficiency Self-priming Filter Pump
  •  Automatic or Manual Control System
  •  PLC controller for back wash operations and valve actuation
  •   Stainless Steel frame
  •   Skid-mounted for easy portability
  •  All controls, and level switches
  •  Low operating and maintenance costs

OPTIONAL FEATURES:
