Engineers at Wastech Design Effective Heavy Metal Removal Systems

To ensure the presence of heavy metals in wastewater is reduced to safe and EPA-compliant levels, industrial companies count on Wastech Controls & Engineering, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When using a pump lift station system for wastewater treatment and many other industrial and laboratory processes, it is necessary to work with heavy metals like Nickel, Chrome, Zinc, Cadmium and Copper, among others. Yet, these common industrial byproducts can pose considerable health risks. That's why there are various local, state and federal regulations and restrictions that require the presence of these heavy metals in wastewater to be reduced before the water is discharged into the environment. For this purpose, engineers and other industrial professionals often use the heavy metal removal systems from Wastech Controls & Engineering, Inc. The highly regarded company is widely known for their effective pump lift station and process system integrator offerings, and their team brings remarkable expertise in engineering to a variety of heavy metal removal options.

Heavy metal removal systems from Wastech utilize both precipitation and ion exchange technology. In ion exchange removal systems, resins are designated as either cation resins – which remove positively charged components like metallic components, or anion resins that remove negatively charged elements. Mixed bed ion exchange systems, meanwhile, remove a wide variety of components. Many engineers prefer these ion exchange systems for their environmental benefits, since they return high quality de-ionized ultrapure water to the manufacturing process, instead of throwing away water waster.

Each heavy metal removal system from Wastech includes a UL listed control panel, NEMA 4 powder coated steel control panel, PLC-based control system with color touchscreen HMI, chemical feed metering pumps, seismic tie-down brackets, and other features. Wastech understands that wastewater removal needs can vary for each company or laboratory, which is why they offer the choice of heavy metal removal systems that can remove all metals in small batches, or batches as large as 2000 gallons at a time. Industrial and lab professionals can also choose between various holding tank and reaction tank volumes, filtration options, chemical storage, control options and power requirements, among other sizes and features.

Depending on a company's specific needs, their systems also include optional features such as:

  • Epoxy coated metal skids
  • Heat exchanger systems for concentrated wastes that generate excessive heat during Treatment
  • Extension legs and raised platforms for filter presses
  • Post treatment pH adjustment
  • Double containment for skid – including leak detection
  • Discharge flow meter with totalizer
  • Digital data logger for effluent pH and/or flow

Improper wastewater treatment can lead to dissolved metals in harmful concentrations in groundwater that can eventually lead to drinking water supplies – an issue that can negatively affect the environment, and reflect poorly on industrial firms. To ensure your company is effective in removing heavy metals from wastewater, contact Wastech Controls & Engineering, Inc. by calling (818) 998-3500 or going online at www.wastechengineering.com. Their application engineers will discuss the usefulness of their processes as they relate directly to your company.
