Industrial Water Treatment

COAGULATION

Our Organic Coagulant polymers are specifically formulated and designed to promote rapid removal of the wide range of suspended solids typically found in raw waters, including: Colloidal particles, color bodies, microorganisms, and other dispersed material which can adversely impact finished water quality. These highly cationic, relatively low molecular weight polymers offer superior charge neutralization.

Our Inorganic Coagulants are formulated to optimize in Solids and Color Removal. WaterSolve will work to identify the best product to provide removal of contaminants at lower metal dosage rates, without the substantial pH adjustment needed with traditional coagulants, and with less sludge generation. This in turn should provide the overall lowest use cost.

Our products will also help to insure that your plant meets the D/DBP Rules for enhanced coagulation.

SEDIMENTATION

WaterSolve flocculant-grade polymers are specifically formulated and designed to promote solids capture, increase floc formation rates, and to produce a denser, faster settling floc.

FILTRATION

WaterSolve filter aids added just prior to filtration, maximize solids capture, minimize fines carryover, and quickly produce a floc that is more filterable; Yet, still prevents head loss by offering good media penetration of the solids. By preventing premature solids breakthrough, the polymers allow filter runs to be extended, optimizing efficiency and cost of operation. Another benefit is reduced filter recovery time following backwash.

SLUDGE DEWATERING

Efficient removal of water in the liquid solids separation is key to overall use cost analysis. WaterSolve is keenly aware of the value and cost of producing solids to be removed from your site. WaterSolve dewatering polymers are used in a variety of equipment:

BELT FILTER PRESS

WaterSolve polymers play a critical role in optimizing performance of filter belt presses.  They produce the type of floc needed to maximize water release in the gravity section and prevent sludge extrusion in the compression zone.  They also reduce the risk of filter blinding.

SIEVE DRUM CONCENTRATORS

WaterSolve polymers offer excellent floc qualities that allow for a tough floc required to handle the movement of the solids through the drum, while retaining the solids for optimum solids capture.Sleve Drum Concentrator

CENTRIFUGES

These polymers are designed for rapid floc formation needed to accomodate a relatively brief conditioning time.  They also produce the tough floc required to withstand the high gravitational forces encountered.  These polymers can increase recovery efficiencies and throughput and accomodate wider variations in sludge treatability.

Centrifuge

DRYING BEDS

WaterSolve polymers are formulated to accelerate free water release, speeding drainage and evaporation which significantly reduces drying time.  They can dramatically increase surface loading rates and reduce the surface area required to dewater a given volume of sludge.

GEOTUBES®

WaterSolve polymers offer excellent solids retention and high filtration efficiencies in dredging operations where the floc formation time is often limited and the time to specified cake dryness is critical.

VACUUM FILTERS

Our polymers are uniquely formulated and produced to provide the broadest product line to choose from.  These dewatering aids are designed to promote rapid formation of dense, strong, shear-resistant floc that readily releases water.  Depending on your particular operating conditions and operational goals, we can provide:

  • Optimal Cake Dryness
  • Reduced Sludge Treatment Costs
  • Assure Process Reliability
  • Enhanced System Performance
  • Reduced Chemical Treatment Costs

THICKENING AIDS

GRAVITY BELT THICKENERS

WaterSolve high performance polymers promote formation of larger, heavier floc which settles faster and produces a denser sludge…and to maximize fines capture, producing a higher clarity supernatant that minimizes risk of recycles fines buildup.

DISSOLVED AIR FLOTATION UNITS

In dissolved air flotation units, WaterSolve polymers and Inorganic Coagulants effectively flocculate biological solids from secondary clarifiers to produce masses to which rising bubbles can adhere.  The surfactant properties of these polymers also serve to promote strong attachment of the air bubbles to the floc, promoting it’s efficient flotation and removal.
