General Manufacturing and Industrial processes involve chemical, physical, and mechanical steps to manufacture the goods used by society. With that activity comes numerous solid and fluid waste streams that plant operators must account for and manage for either treatment and disposal or reuse. Management of an industrial wastewater treatment system by screening out solids as well as managing solids with an industrial waste grinder are all critical operations to an efficient industrial facility.
General manufacturing covers a broad scope of applications across the automotive, metals, textiles, pharmaceutical, and pulp & paper industries. Each application has its own qualities that present unique wastewater treatment challenges. Whether that be recovering oil for reuse or removing targeted metal compounds that inhibit the effectiveness of biological treatment processes, whatever the specific need of the application, JWC Environmental can deliver the right solution.
Industrial wastewater screening is the process of removing solids that can clog or damage pumps or interfere with subsequent treatment processes. Screening in a wastewater treatment system is also done to recover valuable resources that can be reused or recycled. Screens are an effective and efficient method to remove suspended or floating solids, heavy inorganic solids such as sand, gravel, metal or glass, or excessive amounts of oils and grease from industrial wastewater.
Industrial wastewater can further be cleaned through the use of JWC’s IPEC Internally Fed Rotary Drum Screens, Externally Fed Rotary Drum Screens as well as Sidehill Screens for a variety of industrial wastewater applications. Screens are customized to target exactly what is being screened out and ensure a high capture rate.
Some industrial processes can have raw materials or produce waste that contains numerous tough solids. These solids can clog pumps and create other problems in production. JWC’s SHRED and HYDRO industrial shredders can be used to grind up solid waste as well as other debris to protect pumps and process equipment. Grinders can also be uses to reduce the volume of waste and minimize transportation costs.
A closed-loop industrial process utilizes production or waste from another process to make new products. Loops may be closed, for example, by recovery, re-use or recycling. Recycling has become a familiar tool for sustainability but is often defined as conventional off-site, third-party approaches. Some of the most innovative and effective recycling programs are on-site, where packaging, waste or by-products from one step are used as materials for another. Monster Industrial Shredders can take by-products, grind them down, and then have them put back into the process, instead of throwing these by-products away.
