Save More with Media-Less Fluid Filtration Options

Fluid recycling systems utilize several different technologies to separate solid matter and contaminants from used metalworking fluids so that coolants and oils can be reclaimed for future use. The benefits of this process is a drastic reduction in new fluid purchases and improved working conditions for staff due to the bacteria that is eliminated. For certain equipment, filter media is […]

How Vacuum Evaporation Can Lower Multi-Stream Wastewater Treatment Expenses

Treating industrial multi-stream wastewater is a complex and expensive endeavor for many commercial operations. The high flow rates associated with multi-stream wastewater have traditionally required costly, sprawling treatment systems that occupied a lot of precious floorspace and consumed energy. Fortunately, using vacuum evaporation and distillation technologies as part of a comprehensive treatment system addresses these issues. With that in mind, […]
