SEPARATION APPLICATIONS

AUTOMOTIVE MAINTENANCE AREAS

Automotive maintenance areas and construction areas often require permitting for their wastewater due to the oil present in the wastewater. In the cases of automotive maintenance, an Oil Water Separator is required to remove the oil from water using coalescing media to agitate the water and weirs to skim the water off of the top. Flo Trend Systems’ Oil Water Separator is an above ground unit that can therefore be easily cleaned and maintained.

CONSTRUCTION DEWATERING

In the case of construction maintenance wastewater is commonly the result of wash pits or hydro-pads which are used to collect the water used to clean off heavy equipment. This water, depending on its content can be sent through dewatering container filters, an oil water separator, or can be reclaimed and re-used using a Water Processing Unit.

PRECIOUS RESOURCE RECLAMATION AND RECYCLING

Dewatering container filters such as Self Dumping Hoppers and Front, Rear, or Side Loading Container Filters are often used in existing industrial processes to reclaim valuable or precious resources from a stream to be reused in the process. The popularity of these smaller container filters is largely due to the ability to their small footprint, the ability to fit them into the tight quarters of an existing process/facility, and the fact that they can be moved by forklift.

AGRICULTURAL WASTEWATER

Poultry, livestock, and grain runoff in agricultural settings each provide their own unique challenges, but can be dewatered using a Poly Mate Polymer Injection Unit and a Sludge Mate Container Filter.

Once matched with the proper polymer and/or other coagulants, the wastewater from Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) can be stored and gradually dewatered for land application in compliance with federal regulations such as National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit, or those set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency.

FOOD PROCESSING

The Sludge Mate Dewatering Container Filter and Poly Mate Polymer Injection Unit are both excellent components for the wastewater management of dairy wastewater, chicken rendering, fish and squid waste processing, and slaughterhouse wastewater.

GREASE TRAP WASTE

Grease Trap Waste is typically lipid heavy and must be treated in a holding tank– in many cases a frac tank– using lime to raise the ph to a level where polymer will be able to bind to it. An alternative is to mix (dilute) it with biosolid sludge. After this has occurred, and the appropriate polymer has been matched to it, the sludge can be pumped through a Poly Mate or Lime Mate Polymer Injection Unit and into a Sludge Mate Container Filter for dewatering.

OIL AND GAS

Valuable hydrocarbons should always be recovered from a waste stream to maximize efficiency and prevent environmental damage. Flo Trend offers an array of products and services intended to make the separation of oil and gas from water an easy, reliable, and fast process.
