The Importance of Water Reclamation in Industrial Operations

Water Reclamation

Access to clean and safe water is essential for the daily operations of large organizations and job sites, particularly in the hospitality industry. Water reuse, also known as water recycling or water reclamation, is crucial for providing fresh water for various purposes, including consumption and cleaning. Everfilt® assists organizations in conserving water resources and cutting operational costs through innovative water reclamation technologies.

Benefits of Water Reclamation

1. Conservation of Water Resources

Water reclamation enables organizations to recycle and reuse water, significantly reducing the demand for fresh water. This is especially important in regions facing water scarcity. By treating and repurposing water from various sources, companies can ensure a sustainable water supply for their operations.

2. Cost Savings

Reusing water helps organizations reduce the need to purchase fresh water, leading to substantial savings. Additionally, it lowers wastewater disposal costs, as less water is sent to treatment facilities. Investing in water reclamation systems offers long-term financial benefits.

Applications of Water Reclamation

Dust Control

Dust control is a vital procedure on almost all job sites. Water is typically applied using large impact sprinklers or water trucks, sourced from wells, rainwater, streams, ponds, or recycled water. To prevent clogging of sprinkler heads or nozzles, the water must be filtered. Filtering source water helps eliminate downtime and unexpected maintenance, ensuring efficient dust control operations.

Sand & Silt Removal

In the oil, gas, and mining industries, removing sand and fine silt from water sources is a significant challenge. These particles can cause premature wear or damage to machinery and equipment. Sand and silt can also clog pipes, lagoons, ponds, and pumps. Preventative water filtration systems remove Total Suspended Solids (TSS), protecting equipment and maintaining operational efficiency.

Tailing Pond Water Treatment

Tailing ponds are used in mining operations to separate water from tailings. The water from these ponds is recycled back into the extraction process, reducing freshwater use and lowering operational costs. Depending on the process, filtration systems may be needed to remove high-volume solids.

Heavy Metals Recovery

Removing heavy metals from wastewater is crucial for environmental protection and regulatory compliance. Methods such as membrane filtration, media filters, adsorption, and ion exchange are employed to treat contaminated water. Adsorption is particularly effective due to its availability, lower cost, and eco-friendly nature.
