Water treatment to protect valuable Engineered Wood & Pellet processing equipment

CleanWESPTM is an all-organic, proprietary chemical treatment process designed to reduce TSS, TDS, high chlorides, sodium oxide, and potassium oxide. These particles can be found in water vapor that is transferred from the Wet Electrostatic Precipitator (WESP) to the Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) and become trapped inside the WESP and RTO media. This can plug up the equipment and media, even causing it to become brittle and dysfunctional. To prevent RTO media fouling and buildup in the WESP, ProChem designs a tailored chemical treatment program that will treat the recycle tank water prior to it being used in the process. This prevents harmful contaminants from entering expensive WESP and RTO equipment and piping.

While hydro-blasting and caustic cleaning can clean the equipment and media successfully, these are expensive and are only effective for a few cycles. Another RTO media repair option is to replace the media completely. This can cost millions of dollars, between the materials, production down time, and labor.

Save Time & Money

CleanWESP saves time and money by eliminating the need for hydro-blasting, reducing the amount of scheduled downtime for maintenance, and even eliminating the need to store wastewater onsite and dispose of it. Our customers are reusing 100% of their water.
