When the subject of Wash Water Recycling comes up there are many questions that can arise. The following are a few that are frequently asked are:
– Will it have an odor?
– What will its’ clarity be?
– How much is recycled?
The above questions seem very basic but can at times create a complex response because of the specific application. Let’s explore each question independently.
Question: Will it have an odor?
Response: The wash water being processed through the GSMS or HSMS Series has no odor because of the micro bubble transfusion taking place inside of the Biological Tank. The transfer of oxygen to the aerobic microbes helps assure the environment stays above 12 mg/L of Dissolved Oxygen so the aerobic microbes can breakdown the organics in the waste stream (ie. oils, greases, etc.).
Question: What will its’ clarity be?
Response: Before answering this question, the term clarity should be scientifically defined as Turbidity. Turbidity is the measure of relative clarity of a liquid and is an indicator of the amount of suspended sediment in the water. A widely used measuring system of Turbidity is Nephelometric Turbidity Units (NTU).
For example, when a grab sample is conducted from a traditional biological wash water treatment system, the water tends to be a “Tea” colored water that grab sample could be 250-450 NTU vs. a grab sample from the GSMS or HSMS System have a 20 – 50 NTU. The difference is the introduction of Clarifloc before entering the Inclined Plate Clarifier of the GSMS or HSMS unit that allows the non-organic suspended solids to drop out prior to entering the Biological Area of the System.
Question: How many gallons of wash water are being recycled?
Response: A key consideration for recycling wash water is the sustainability aspect. The GSMS and HSMS come standard with a Flow Accumulator Meter that digitally illustrates how many gallons have been recycled by the System. This can assist in Corporate Sustainability Reporting (CSR) or determine how many gallons of wash water is being used per day/week/month/year.
As you can see with the introduction of the ESD Waste2Water, Inc GSMS and HSMS Series Recycling Systems, the answers to these questions become have become “clearer”.
Now the only question that begs to be asked is, how can ESD Waste2Water, Inc help you?
ESD Waste2Water Inc.’s next generation Wash Water Treatment System is here. A combined TWO-PHASE System that is designed to separate the solids in an Incline Plate Clarifier making it easy for the operators to remove the sludge all while the Biological Treatment System consumes the organics (oils, greases, fuel residue, etc.) converting it into carbon dioxide and water. The incredible bi-product of this process is a clear “grey” water.
The ESD Waste2Water, Inc. Combo Unit is ideal for:
Golf Maintenance Facilities
Forklifts / Scissor Lifts
Heavy Mud Equipment (bulldozers, scrapers, dump trucks, front end loaders)
Solid Waste Haulers
Additional advantages for this remarkable breakthrough:
Small Equipment Footprint Size
Ease of Operation
High Volume Water Cannon Option
Low Consumable Costs
The Combo Unit can easily be paired with an Above Ground Wash Pad System (Containment Island) for a portable closed loop system. Consult with your local ESD Waste2Water, Inc. Regional Manager to learn more.
ESD Waste2Water, Inc is excited to announce the NEW Solids Management System (SMS) designed to handle solids above ground while recycling the wash water. The new wash pad design eliminates large in-ground sumps and drive-in pits saving on space and messy clean outs. The SMS is designed to process large amounts of sludge, mud and solid waste generated from washing in a closed loop recycling system. The waste is then placed into any easy to empty Solids Hopper. The SMS 700 & 800 are designed to greatly reduce operator maintenance for heavy wash applications so cleaning your equipment can be the main objective.
The Benefits of the ESD Waste2Water, Inc. SMS Package are too significant to ignore. But, here are just 5 of the benefits.
Solids handling. Instead of the messy process of cleaning in-ground sumps or having to remove soupy solids from a drive in pit, the sludge is above ground where it can be dumped into a frontend loader or skid steer bucket.
The Cost per gallon of water is impressive. Consider the idea of processing millions of gallons of water per year in a full close looped water recycling system. Your dollar will stretch with our environmentally friendly system.
Reduced infrastructure, the below ground impact is minimal and the ESD Waste2Water, Inc. SMS Package, eliminates the possibility of leaking sumps, which could potentially create an expensive environmental clean-up.
Our system produces high quality grey water.
A small Equipment Footprint. Because space is a commodity.
ESD Waste2Water, Inc. builds Above Ground Portable Wash Pads for a myriad of industries. We can review your business process and procedures to maximize your throughput and then engineer an Above Ground Wash Pad System to meet your needs.
