For industrial facilities, complying with EPA and local wastewater regulation has become much easier with more fully automated wastewater treatment systems. Sabo Industrial Corp., a New York-based manufacturer, distributor and integrator of industrial waste treatment equipment and solutions, offers systems that reliably meet regulatory wastewater requirements. The systems also significantly reduce the cost of treatment, labor, and disposal when the Sabo’s Cleartreat separating agents are also used.
In contrast to labor-intensive multiple-step processes, automated wastewater treatment can help to streamline production while lowering costs at industrial facilities. An automated wastewater treatment system can eliminate the need to monitor equipment in person while complying with EPA and locally mandated requirements. Such automated systems separate suspended solids, emulsified oil and heavy metals, and encapsulate the contaminants, producing an easily de-waterable sludge in minutes. The water is typically then separated using a de-watering table or bag filters before it is discharged into sewer systems or further filtered for re-use as process water. Other options for de-watering include using a filter press or rotary drum vacuum. The resulting solids are non-leachable and are considered non-hazardous, so will pass all required testing.
Sabo systems are available as manual batch processors, semi-automatic, or automatic. They can be designed as a closed loop system for water reuse or provide a legally dischargeable effluent suitable for the sewer system. A new, fully customized system is not always required; in many cases, it can be faster and more cost effective to add to or modify an industrial facility’s current wastewater treatment system when this is feasible.
Because of the importance of separating agents for wastewater treatment, Sabo Industrial uses a special type of bentonite clay in its line of wastewater treatment chemicals called ClearTreat. This line of wastewater treatment chemicals is formulated to break oil and water emulsion, remove heavy metals, and promote flocculation, agglomeration and suspended solids removal.
