WESCOR supplies a complete line of water treatment chemistries for
use in most water treatment applications. We conduct a no-charge wastestream
evaluation to determine the appropriate chemical treatment program
for each wastewater. As no two waste streams are identical, our ability
to supply custom formulated liquid and dry chemistries permit optimization
of the water treatment program.
WESCOR treatment programs are designed to meet our customers' needs
with a focus on exceptional effluent quality, minimal chemistry usage,
sludge reduction and ease of use. Our water treatment chemistries
Clay-based flocculants couple the principle of conventional treatment
technology with the simplicity of a single addition chemistry. A conventional
approach to wastewater treatment applies a multistep, and often time
consuming process for removal of suspended solids, oils, and metals
from wastewater. This complex process requires multiple pieces of
equipment which consume significant floor space.
Clay-based flocculant is supplied in granular form and comprised
of a mixture of bentonite clay, ph adjusting compounds, coagulants,
and flocculants. Each of the additives are carefully selected to create
a customized treatment formulation specific to the wastestream being
treated. The clay flocculant treatment process conducts each of the
steps that a traditional system would use, however the process occurs
quickly and sequentially. The treatment can be conducted in a single
tank with minimal supervision.
After being introduced to the wastewater the clay flocculant is agitated
for a few minutes. Following agitation a large, robust floc is formed
which has captured the contaminant and removed it from the wastewater.
The large floc quickly separates from the water permitting efficient
filtration by means of a simple filter such as a gravity filter bed.
The bentonite clay component of the material has a high ion exchange
capacity which is capable of capturing contaminants within the matrix
of the clay structure. Due to this attribute, the filter cake produced
encapsulates all contaminants which were removed from the wastewater;
resulting in a non-hazardous solid waste which is suitable for disposal
to a non-regulated landfill facility.
As no two wastewaters are equal, WESCOR supplies custom formulated
clay based flocculants which are developed based on the characteristics
of the wastewater sample. A treatabillity study is conducted on each
wastewater sample, and a clay based flocculant is formulated to produce
the most effective treatment.
Polyelectroytes (Polymers) are commonly used in the water treatment
process to flocculate solids in order to facilitate solid/liquid separation.
Polymer treatment is capable of handling a wide range of treatment
applications including: wastewater treatment, sludge dewatering and
WESCOR supplies polymers in both liquid and powdered format. We offer an extensive range of cationic, and anionic charged polymers with various molecular weights. WESCOR will help determine the proper polymer for your system ensuring your equipment operates with peak efficiency.
Coagulants are an integral component of a treatment systems ability to produce effective and reliable results. WESCOR carries coagulants effective for emulsion breaking/oil removal, phosphate treatment, suspended solids and metals removal. WESCOR will determine proper coagulant selection to improve system performance and minimize operating costs. In order to optimize treatment results, many of our coagulants are custom formulated to meet the demands of the wastestream.
Waste solidification is a common method of processing liquid waste
materials which are not fit for wastewater treatment, or recycling
processes. WESCOR Solidification materials are capable of quickly
and safely absorbing free liquids, organics and heavy metals, producing
a non-leachable solid waste which can be easily handled and removed
for off-site disposal.
Solidification agents are available in powdered, semi-granular and
granular form. Our specialized formulas have the ability to absorb
liquid up to 300 times their weight in water, providing exceptional
results with minimal chemical additions. Conventional solidification
material such as fly ash, cement, kiln dust and saw dust require large
quantities of material to adequately absorb free liquid which significantly
increases off-site transport costs of shipping the material to landfill.
WESCOR solidification materials are suitable for use in solidification/stabilization of:
