Flexographic Ink / Latex Wastewater Treatment

CLEARWATER TECHNOLOGY FLEXOGRAPHIC INK, CORRUGATED, LATEX WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS
where GREEN CHEMISTRY meets GREEN ENGINEERING

 

Clearwater Technology offers the equipment and chemicals to remove contaminants from water, including suspended solids, oils, dissolved heavy metals and color. If you have an existing system our reactant chemicals may help meet municipal discharge parameters and improve system efficiency.

 

RT-200-HO

FAST
Process an entire batch in less than 45 minutes. Standard batch sizes are 55, 100, 200, 500, 750 and 1,000 gallons. Full-auto and custom systems are available

EASY TO USE
Single chemical process is simple. These systems are designed with custodial personnel as the intended operators.

ECONOMICAL
Low capital cost. Low cost to operate. We will gladly analyze your effluent to determine operational cost and equipment requirements. We will then provide you with a quotation, lab results and a sample of reactant for bench testing.

NO FILTER PRESS REQUIRED
Resultant floc/sludge is separated via a gravity bed filter and sludge is automatically dispensed into the included gondola.

SAFE
Unlike traditional systems requiring pH adjustment with dangerous acids & alkalis prior to polymers, coagulants, filter-aids and lime, our one-step  reactant is non-hazardous and safe to use.

The RT Reactors are the machines at the heart of the system. These machines are designed to mix, separate and discharge effluents. Equipped with many labor saving features, these machines are easy to use. Components include name brands such as Allen Bradley, Wilden, Zoeller and others making these machines dependable and reliable with a three-year warranty. They are available in a variety of configurations with several options including a hands free fully automated version.

We also provide tanks, pumps, transfer systems, pre and post treatment. We offer a full line of equipment to compliment these systems and handle your effluent from generation to discharge.

RT Reactor Process

The following is a description of the flocculation process in one of our RT Reactors:

Stage One:

RT stages new 1

The RT Unit is filled with effluent. The turbine mixer is started and Reactant Powder is added. After (5) minutes of mixing a large floc will form. The mixer is then stopped and settling of the floc to the bottom of the tank occurs, usually in a couple of minutes.

Stage two:

RT stages new 2

Once the settling of the floc has occurred, draining and filtering begins. Clarified water from the upper area of the tank is drained first, followed by the floc. Filter media captures the floc, now sludge, allowing the clarified water through to a clean compartment. A discharge pump automatically transfers the fluids to sewer or recycling vessel.

Stage three:

RT stages new 3

An automated conveyor advances the filter media and sludge as needed. This usually requires only 5 feet of filter media. An included self-tipping sludge gondola captures the filter media and sludge for disposal. The sludge dries to a cake, without need of a filter press. The process is now complete. The water is ready for reuse, or discharge to sewer. The sludge can be disposed of to landfill.
