Industrial waste water treatment and recovery systems are designed to process and clean wastewater generated by industrial facilities. Industrial wastewater can contain a wide variety of pollutants and contaminants, including heavy metals, hazardous chemicals, and oil and grease.
There are several different types of industrial waste water treatment systems, including physical, chemical, and biological treatment methods. The specific type of treatment system used will depend on the nature and severity of the contaminants present in the wastewater, local regulations and the objectives of the company. While chemical / physical pre-discharge systems are still the norm, advances in technologies combined with corporate or municipal mandates and rising costs have resulted in increased interest in systems that are capable of treating the water for reuse in the facility, eliminating the need to discharge entirely.
