Wastewater treatment is a critical step for governments and businesses to take to protect and maintain healthy water resources. Human and industrial effluent can cause danger to human health and the environment if left untreated. New technologies are allowing both businesses and cities to gain more benefits from the preliminary and primary treatment stages.
Preliminary wastewater treatment involves the removal of the largest solids, including human effluent and industrial waste such as food particles. For certain businesses, adding a preliminary step to their wastewater can decrease their sewage utility costs, and provide sewage sludge. Another step businesses can take to cut down on water utility costs is to complete primary wastewater treatment. Considered by many to be the minimum effort required to use wastewater for non-food related irrigation, primary treatment removes settleable and floatable materials and collects it as sewage sludge. The sewage sludge can then be treated and turned into biosolids for use in anaerobic digesters. Anaerobic digesters turn biosolids into fertilizer, as well as biogas which can be used to power some Gasmaster boilers.
Wastewater treatment plants require hot water at a number of stages in the treatment process. The heat is required for the activation of the biological reactions which comprise the major portion of the procedure. This requires a continuous flow of hot water. Our high-efficiency stainless steel hot water boilers are an economical way to provide the hot water and heat you need to take care of your wastewater treatment needs.
