  • Common Wastewater Treatment Methods

    Wastewater Treatment Methods by Excel Industrial Group

    Water is not only an essential element to the human body and our planet, but it is also a crucial part of many businesses. Water is used for many industrial purposes including:

    • Manufacturing goods
    • Cooling
    • Heating
    • Carrying raw materials or waste matter
    • And much more

    Once the water has been used it is then classified as wastewater and needs to be properly handled and disposed. Wastewater can be a pollutant when entering other bodies of water and when contaminating soil. Industrial process wastewater must be treated before it is discharged, or properly transported and and handled for disposal. There are a variety of ways this can be done depending on the processes of your business.

    Physical Unit Operations – This treatment type uses the application of physical forces and can include:

    • Screening
    • Flocculation
    • Mixing
    • Flotation
    • Sedimentation
    • Filtration
    • Gas Transfer

    Chemical Unit Processes – Contaminants are removed or converted through the addition of chemicals. Common examples include:

    • Precipitation
    • Disinfection
