EC System gets rid of water contaminants, reduces operator monitoring time by 95%
Sep 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Stormwater Management Inc announces the new Electrocoagulation System (EC System), its electrocoagulation water processing system for industrial, marine, and transportation applications with a high concentration of contaminants. The EC System uses controlled electrical current to remove multiple contaminants from industrial wastewater, washwater, and stormwater.
A programmed technology, the EC System is monitored and maintained by an onboard control system, reducing operator time by nearly 95%. Operators only need to make routine checks once or twice a day.
This system draws only about 15 amps on a 230-volt, three-phase circuit at 5 gpm. Quality of the treated water is up to 10 times better than that of mechanical systems, and nearly 100% of the cleaned water can be recycled. In washwater treatment or wash rack applications, detergents and soaps remain in the water for reuse.
The EC System meets all discharge requirements under the NPDES regulations in many industry applications, especially where the particles being filtered are either so small that they would pass through a typical filtration system, or so numerous that they would overwhelm the system.
Stormwater Management's new industrial system separates oily wastewater, emulsified oils, suspended solids, total petroleum hydrocarbons, and heavy metals. It can be used in conjunction with other systems, such as the company's StormFilter, to treat “hot spots” in applications where greater quantities of contaminated water must be managed.
