Does your industrial process use a significant amount of water or have high costs associated with water or wastewater?

Our industrial water reuse customers experience immediate ROI on water costs.

Are you currently treating the purchased water before using it?

Our industrial water reuse customers report that the quality of recycled water is the best they've had for their process and have eliminated their pretreatment system as a result. Eliminating pretreatment means fewer chemicals to purchase and less equipment to maintain.

Do you know of a process or plant activity that could use recycled water?

The recycled water can be purified to the highest quality or to contain essential minerals that help the process to which the water will be fed. The industrial water reuse system is designed to meet your unique needs, not to meet the needs of the majority in an off-the-shelf solution.

Are your operating costs a prohibitive factor in wastewater treatment?

Our industrial water reuse systems are automated and offer web-based remote monitoring, so our reuse customers get more from their current operators without having to increase operating costs. We also offer outsourced industrial water reuse system operations, where we employ the operator so you don't have to.

Is there space available in your facility or outside of it to add an industrial water reuse system?

Our industrial water reuse systems are designed to be integrated into existing wastewater treatment systems and can even be installed outdoors in the open or in an external enclosure. We fabricate the systems in house, allowing us to design the system according to your footprint.

Congratulations to the ProChem, Inc. Water Systems team for a successful system start-up for a leading manufacturing of fiber cement siding and backboard. This system treats and reclaims effluent from the facility's existing wastewater treatment system for reuse in their manufacturing process. It features automation and web-based remote monitoring and utilizes ProChem, Inc. microbiocide, anti-scalant, and pH adjustment products.

This wastewater reuse system allows the customer to reuse 300k gallons of wastewater per day, instead of discharging it from the plant.

Fresh water costs are increasing as the availability becomes less reliable, putting a strain on industrial plant managers who require water for production processes.

The quality of water that is permitted for discharge from industrial manufacturing processes to public treatment facilities is highly regulated and presents a significant environmental liability.

These requirements pose an added strain on operating budgets and plant flexibility. As production requirements grow and processes change, so too will the condition of the wastewater that is generated from the production process. The company's discharge permit, however, is rigid. When a company's wastewater discharge exceeds the permitted limits, fines and other legal consequences may be incurred. One of the most cost-effective ways to reduce such environmental liability is through the implementation of industrial water reuse technologies. These water treatment processes allow for the reuse of industrial process wastewater rather than discharging to the sanitary sewer. Industrial water reuse systems can reduce the need to purchase water for use in production (lowering operating costs) and reduce or even eliminate the need to discharge water from the plant entirely (limiting or eliminating environmental liability). These systems offer a sustainable solution to the industrial water problem using the latest techniques in industrial water technology.
