#273 Dewatering Water Based Adhesive Residuals

This paint manufacturing facility was incurring huge costs for an outside firm to pick up and process their water based residuals. These residuals were from washing barrels and cleaning the plant. The plant managers felt costs needed to be cut in this area and sought technology to do so. WaterSolve, LLC was contracted to determine if Geotextile tube dewatering technology could provide an on-site process that would save time and money. A sample of the residuals was sent to the WaterSolve lab where testing proved it a viable option. A pilot study was performed on-site to verify the dewatering would work and the cost savings were achievable. The plant has now implemented the technology as a standard practice and enjoys the money saved as a result.
