Industrial pretreatment is the removal of conventional and toxic pollutants from industrial wastewater before discharge into a sewer system managed by publicly owned treatment works.
Water is an essential substance required for industrial processes. Wastewater is water that has been contaminated from organic, and inorganic pollutants produced as waste products of various physical and chemical processes in industries.
Wastewater from industrial processes contains many organic, and inorganic compounds and particulate matter with potentially adverse effects on the immediate environment and marine ecosystem.
Many industrial plants and facilities use or create wastewater with their processes. The wastewater can be discharged, based on local regulations and permit requirements, or reused within their process.
Industrial pretreatment is the removal of conventional and toxic pollutants from industrial wastewater before discharge into a sewer system managed by a publicly owned treatment works (POTW). It aims to prevent the contamination of public systems which may seep into lakes, rivers, and other water bodies and cause widespread water pollution.
The pretreatment process means the treatment of wastewater by commercial and industrial facilities to remove harmful materials before being discharged to a sewer system under the control of a publicly owned wastewater treatment plant.
1. To avoid interference with your industrial wastewater treatment operations
2. To prevent the influx of pollutants that could pose health and safety hazards to the general public and the environment
3. To encourage and implement the reuse and recycling of industrial wastewater and sewage sludge
4. To prevent the influx of pollutants that could pass through your wastewater treatment plants undetected and contaminate the receiving environment
Wastewater filtration systems can remove suspended solids and larger contaminants from your water.
The three main types of mechanical filtration equipment are:
For filtration pretreatment, one-size-fits-all does not really exist.
The material being filtered plays a large role in the method of choice.
For example, in aggregates and mining, the Filter Press is the likely favorite. In municipal wastewater, belt presses are often employed. And centrifuges used in a variety of non-traditional settings like recycling plants.
