Learn About the Wastewater Technology that’s Available for Your Municipal Plant or Industrial Facility

If you need to remove pollutants from water, there’s a wide variety of wastewater technology available to help you accomplish the task. Understanding these different types of equipment is the first step toward building a system that will meet your specific needs.

A type of wastewater technology that’s used early in the treatment process is an equalization tank. These tanks serve the important function of regulating the flow rate and solids concentration of the wastewater entering the treatment system. After leaving the equalization tank, wastewater will typically enter a mixing tank. There, an automated chemical feed system will release pH neutralization chemicals or coagulants/flocculants to alter the wastewater so that the treatment process will yield the best possible results. A propeller-like agitator in this tank will help disperse these chemicals throughout the wastewater.

There are different types of wastewater technology available for separating solids from water. One is a sedimentation tank, which causes solids to settle to the bottom of the tank, where they can be removed. For some applications, a flotation system may be preferable. Flotation tanks lift solids to the surface of the water using tiny air bubbles, so waste can be skimmed away there.
