What You Should Know About Phenol Oxidation

water treatment plantPhenol oxidation is employed by many wastewater treatment companies. This blog from Sandling Industrial Service is going to look at what you should know about it.

Let’s define phenol oxidation before we go any further so that we’re all on the same page. Having a common definition to work from will eliminate the chance of any misunderstandings or misconceptions. So, let’s begin by breaking the term into its component words.

Oxidation is simply the gain of oxygen in a substance. On the other hand, phenol refers to an aromatic organic compound that is also known as carbolic acid. It is usually in the form of white or colorless crystals. Phenol oxidation, as practiced by wastewater treatment companies, is used to meet the stringent regulations that are in place to oversee the treating of industrial effluents. This chemical oxidation method is used to destroy harmful phenols and remove them from wastewater before it can be made safe for discharge into the water system.

How Belt Filter Presses Work in the Water Treatment Process

belt filter press rentalWater treatment is a crucial step in protecting the environment and the general public by ensuring biosolids are disposed of properly. The water that is removed during the dewatering process can then be further treated before being returned to the system.

Sandling Industrial Services offers belt filter press rental to companies. In this blog, we’ll describe in general terms how those filter presses work.

Essentially, the process works by using two belts into which is fed biosolids from a supply mix tank or another source. belts are then passed through a complex system of rollers of various diameters. It is in this network of rollers where the filters are placed under high pressure to extract the water from the solids.

A sludge stream  from a mix tank or other source is fed to the belt press by a slurry pump included on the unit. As the unit is distributed to the top of machine a polymer solution is fed to flock the material. This flocked material is rolled in the first stage of dewatering in what is called the gravity zone. From the gravity zone, material enters the wedge zone of the press were the two belts come together, subsequntly starting the “press” part of the process. The material now between two belts is routed around the dewatering drum and then proceeds into the higher pressure zone of the press. Here, a series of rollers puts compounding pressure on the material to further release pressure.  Existing the high pressure zone, the two belts begin to open/come apart to allow the know dewatered “cake” material to be distributed from the press. Water that is removed during this process is caught by a series of pans and distributed to the bottom pan to be pumped were needed.

Belt filter presses can dewater most biosolids in municipal wastewater treatment facilities and are common equipment used in the mechanical dewatering process.

This type of press has many advantages as it requires a small workforce to operate and maintenance is simple and fast. The equipment is relatively quiet and can be started and shut down quickly.

Renting the 1.7-Meter Belt Press

Wastewater Treatment CompaniesWastewater treatment companies that offer rental services have made it easy for many businesses to augment their environmentally-conscious practices. One piece of equipment, the mobile 1.7m belt press, is revolutionizing how companies treat and dispose of sludge.

A key component of the wastewater treatment process is sludge dewatering. This process separates solids from water, allowing them to be compressed for disposal. The 1.7m belt press makes the dewatering process simple.

One of the most prohibitive obstacles for many businesses is having a wastewater treatment facility at their location. It could be unfeasible to establish such a space, or the upkeep costs would make it unmanageable. The 1.7m belt press is mobile. It is set up as a semi-truck trailer, and most of its functions and controls are contained entirely within the unit. This allows for quick assembly and setup. Also, its relatively compact footprint means that only a few people are necessary to run it.

Additionally, renting the equipment allows you to take advantage of a well-trained and experienced support team. The crews that deliver the belt press handle the maintenance requirements and delivery, which will free up your staff for other roles.

Altogether, the mobile 1.7m belt press provides a convenient and cost-effective solution to treating sludge. By renting this piece of equipment through a wastewater treatment company, you will find it easy to honor your commitments to your environment—while also protecting your bottom line.

Why Renting Sludge Dewatering Equipment is Important

Sludge DewateringEnvironmentally sound industrial practices leave a lasting impact on the community and the future. Businesses and industries that produce sludge or treat wastewater must adopt procedures that facilitate the sensible disposal of waste. The logistics behind such an undertaking can be prohibitive for many factors. In these instances, renting sludge dewatering equipment has become a popular and accessible option for many companies.

While sludge dewatering has become an important component of the wastewater management process, it is cost-prohibitive for a variety of reasons. It requires specialized equipment, sufficient training of personnel, and a means to transport the resultant sludge. As you can imagine, not all businesses may have the equipment or resources on-hand to have a dedicated sludge dewatering sector at their facility.

Renting equipment can be a cost-effective option for many businesses. This allows dewatering processes to occur as needed, reducing upkeep and operating costs. The rental company handles the delivery, operation, and maintenance of the equipment. In turn, these services will keep your operating costs manageable while helping your organization reach its goals to remain environmentally responsible.

Sludge dewatering can protect the environment and upholds the safety of your waste management processes. By renting the equipment, you have access to advanced technology and machinery that will streamline your operations.

BP16_1.7m Roediger refurbish

The refurbishing of our 1.7m Roediger unit is nearing completion. The press has been gone through inclusive of roller re coating and  bearing replacement, even a new paint job!  BP16 has been a favorite of our operators and rental clients alike over the years. It is a three belt system with an independent gravity zone that allows, for some sludge streams, a quicker processing rate and better gravity zone dewatering.  Place your rental orders now for when it is ready to go to work!p1070016

TCEQ Environmental Trade Show and Conference

We would like to thank all of you who stopped by and said HI at the TCEQ show this year in Austin. We had a lot of productive conversations. We would like to congratulate Cindy with Invista; lucky winner of our Samsung Tablet drawing. Hopefully we’ll see you all next year!
