Barnes International’s solution to wastewater treatment is a chemical water treatment. This solution is simpler, cheaper and more efficient than the current and expensive proposition of paying a wastewater treatment company to haul away (via truck) the hazardous water off-site where they then treat the water before they dispose of it.
What is Wastewater?
Wastewater happens when a company uses the city water supply to support plant operations, including cooling and cleaning operations. This city water becomes contaminated and is considered hazardous and cannot be disposed of by just returning it into the city sewer system, dumping it in ground or to local water sources.
The Barnes Solution
We provide a system that can use mechanical and chemical water treatment to treat the water for proper disposal. If the dirty water has solids it could be pre-filtered and then chemically treated and if the output requirements are still not met, additional filtration can be needed on the output side. Chemical water treatment produces either floated solids or settled solids that need to be dealt with. This recovery can be completed by a de-watering press/separator (stacked press, progressive press, driers, etc.), the liquid is then returned to the dirty water recovery side of the process. Most solutions can be handled by pre-filtration of large solids, chemical treatment of suspended solids and contaminants and settling out solids for de-watering. The decanted effluent is basically pure and meets EPA and local regulations but if more clarity ends up being required, mechanical treatment (Activated Carbon or Reverse Osmosis) is applied to obtain cleaner effluent.
What’s the Difference from Other Treatment Processes?
Our customers own and operate the system. This means that the customer can control the water output, be environmentally sound, be safe and responsible. The biggest factor is that the customers can SAVE money by reusing the treated water and not have to pay to haul away this contaminated wastewater. This industrial water treatment’s return on investment (ROI) is easily and quickly recognized by customers.
