Wastewater Filtration and Treatment


Benefits of Wastewater Filtration and Treatment


Water filtration and treatment allow water sources such as wells, rivers, lakes and streams to be used where raw water quality would normally not meet required standards. Wastewater filtration and treatment reduce plant water expenses by cleaning wastewater to permit its re-use. Wastewater can be reconditioned to make it suitable for use as process water, or for use in cooling, firefighting, washing, plant activities and more.


Recycling industrial wastewater can increase profitability while helping to conserve water – an increasingly scarce and expensive commodity. Deciding how best to use wastewater begins with a laboratory analysis of the substances present in the water. Everfilt® engineers work with each client to specify the laboratory tests that should be performed. Once that information has been obtained, our engineers and the client:


  • Identify the various ways the water can be used in the specific facility.


  • Identify the substances to be removed from the water to make it suitable for each use.


  • Determine the process needed to recondition the wastewater for each use.


  • Estimate how much water consumption would be saved by recycling and calculate the annual cost of the water.


  • Obtain a cost estimate for the required treatment system.



  • Compare the cost savings of reduced water consumption to the capital and operating expenses of the treatment system, to determine whether the investment in recycling is cost-effective.


Some of the substances that can be removed from wastewater include:


  • Suspended Solids

  • Volatile Organics

  • Semi-Volatile Organics

  • Oil & Grease

  • Hydrocarbons

  • Metals

  • BOD

  • COD

  • Color

  • Odor

  • Hardness

  • Minerals and more...
