Wastewater processing equipment is an essential part of protecting, conserving and managing the community water cycle. Equipment for processing wastewater helps to collect, store and treat rainwater (also called tank water), or that which falls from buildings and other structures.
Wastewater processing also involves water recycling. Wastewater process equipment is used to reclaim water that may contain processing chemicals from home and industrial use. Special equipment for processing wastewater can effectively reclaim water from residential properties and entire urban municipalities. This wastewater process equipment helps determine whether treated water can be returned to the environment or not. Proper wastewater treatment requires:
1. Choosing the right wastewater processing equipment to handle the primary treatment phase.
2. Understanding how adding oxygen to the treatment process facilitates breaking down organic matter.
3. Following up wastewater treatment with disinfection to reduce the incidence of waterborne diseases.
Choose effective water processing devices for the primary stage in water treatmentThe primary stage of the wastewater process removes the majority of coarse particle matter, like stones, sand and gravel, using filtration equipment. This process removes around half of the solid particle matter, reduces the biological oxygen demand (BOD) and removes 10 percent of present oxygen and nitrogen.
Use wastewater process equipment process to help break down organic materialThe second stage of wastewater treatment involves stabilizing ponds and lagoons by slowing, and in some cases suspending, the growth rate of certain organic matter. During this stage, sludge technologies and trickling filters allow some organic matter in the wastewater to remain an energy and food source for microbial organisms, while the rest of the matter is oxidized into carbon and water.
End the wastewater treatment process with disinfectionThe disinfection of community wastewater is necessary to ensure safe, portable water supplies and healthy lakes and rivers. Disinfection process tanks help control the large number of microorganisms present in sewage treatment facilities, which are linked to waterborne disease outbreaks.
