Manufacturing Wastewater
Treatment Services

The manufacturing process utilizes the most water among any other industrial sector. Due to the large amount of water needed to pursue operations, maintaining proper water quality is a top priority. Pre-treatment is necessary to ensure proper water standards and permit levels are met prior to discharge.

Some of the most water-intensive manufacturing sectors include Paint and Coating, Alkalis and Chlorine, Agricultural Chemicals, Toning, Adhesives, Industrial Gas, Metal Processing and Poultry Processing. All of these manufacturing industry sectors, and more, face difficulties within their facilities, including:

  • Sludge production
  • Coagulation
  • Improper Maintenance
  • Toxic Contamination
  • Infrequent Facility Water Testing
  • Precipitating out heavy metals via chemicals or pH adjustments
  • Removing oil and grease with separators

Wastewater treatment, reuse and recycling are critical to controlling costs and meeting environmental regulations and laws. Process wastewater can contain harmful heavy metals such as lead, copper, chromium, manganese and zinc, as well as chemical emulsions such as formaldehyde and methanol. These hazardous pollutants are extremely harmful to the environment.

By monitoring factors such as oxidation reduction potential (ORP), temperature, pH, conductivity (CON), dissolved oxygen (DO) and turbidity, manufacturing processing facilities can find possible residual contaminants and can ensure their water is treated in accordance with federal and local regulations.

Utilizing Operators Unlimited’s experience in the manufacturing process and treatment services, your process can experience operational efficiency, compliance, eliminate down-time and maintain cost predictability.
