Industrial Wastewater Treatment Systems
Wastewater is any water that has been adversely affected in quality by natural or anthropogenic influence. Included in this definition is industrial wastewater that is generated for a multitude of sources, including manufacturing processes, cooling water, large scale food preparation facilities, plating, aerospace and semiconductor production. In Los Angeles alone, millions of cubic feet of wastewater are generated daily that require some form of treatment to meet internal or agency standards.
Pure Effect, Inc. has over 30 years of experience in Industrial Wastewater Treatment with the goal of reduction of waste, reuse/recycling, water sustainability and discharge compliance with sewer and storm drain [NPDES] discharge permits.
Wastewater chemistry is complex and requires numerous types of treatment to reach the desired treatment goal, including:
- Adjustment of pH using both chemical and natural additives
- Precipitation of heavy metals
- Removal of dissolved volatile organic compounds
- Control of color, odor and temperature
- Purification to remove chlorides and dissolved solids
- Reduction of nitrates and sulfates
Our treatment technologies include:
- Absorption media
- Chemical precipitation
- Ion exchange media
- Advanced reverse osmosis
- Electro-chemical dialysis
- Micro & ultra filtration
