Remove Heavy Metals and Organic Compounds from Wastewater to Comply with POTW Discharge Regulations
PRAB works with many customers who produce wastewater that is either too acidic or too alkaline to be discharged into the public sewer. In these cases, a reliable pH adjustment system like the fully automated, skid-mounted systems offered by PRAB, could be the solution. The pre-packaged pH Adjustment Systems treat a wide variety of industrial waste streams and are configured to neutralize and automatically adjust the pH of wastewater, greatly reducing labor costs, eliminating accidents and potential illegal discharge violations.
PRAB starts with a review of the application and then focus on which pH adjustment system will be best suited for the process. Customizable options are offered, which makes the selection process less challenging. PRAB has streamlined this process with its new water/wastewater analysis instrumentation and complimentary lab with pH testing equipment.
pH is the measure of free acidity or free alkalinity of water. This is measured on a scale of 0-14 where solutions with a pH of less than 7.0 are acids while solutions with a pH of greater than 7.0 are bases. Bases (i.e.- Sodium Hydroxide, etc.), which are alkaline in nature are used to neutralize acids, while acids (i.e.- Sulfuric Acid, etc.) are used to neutralize alkalis.
Having a reliable, automatic monitoring system is essential to ensure that the wastewater treatment system is satisfactorily controlled to obtain the desired results. PRAB offers a Continuous pH Adjusting System for higher flow rates (> 10 gpm) and batch pH Adjusting System for a lower flow rate (typically less than 10 gpm).
Before discharging the effluent from a wastewater treatment system to a publicly owned treatment works (or sewer) there is a specific pH range that must needs to be met for compliance as pH is constantly monitored.
Key benefits include: Reduced risk in overfeed or underfeeding of the pH adjust chemistry, assurance that discharge requirements are met, improved efficiency of system operation, and reduced labor expense by not having a worker constantly monitoring.
