INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER

INDUSTRIAL STORM WATER POND TREATMENT CASE STUDY

PROBLEM

  • Stormwater pond runoff with high TSS and COD from glycol de-icing fluids
  • High disposal cost
  • Hitting discharge specs

PROJECT SPECIFICS

  • Location: Large International Airport in Canada
  • Average Treatment Volume – 90 gpm
  • Seasonal Spring Runoff –  4 months

CHALLENGES

Swirltex was asked to facilitate the water filtration process for a large international airport in Canada. There were a few main wastewater goals Swirltex was in charge of handling, which include:

  1. Filter water to hit discharge spec and government regulated wastewater standards
  2. Reducing disposal costs
  3. TSS < 15mg/L, COD < 100mg/L

PERFORMANCE OUTCOMES

Swirltex’s water filtration process allowed the airport to easily meet government regulated wastewater standards reduce the level of contaminants:
The Swirltex system showed exemplary results in regards to filtering water to hit ESG goals, savings on disposal costs, reduction in TSS and COD.
A reliable water treatment supplier can be hard to find, especially for industries with tough wastewater streams. Swirltex’s expertise in water and waste has allowed us to unlock re-use opportunity and potential across typical wastewater disposal applications. Swirltex technology is only just beginning to make change in the wastewater filtration space.

THE SWIRLTEX WASTEWATER SUCCESS

With a wide variety of water treatment methods available, companies an abundance of options to choose from. The effluent treatment process with the Swirltex technology is easily implemented with high-quality permeate production, along with additional benefits that result in savings for our clients. Membrane technology for water treatment has been the most reliable method of filtration when it comes to handling the wastewater process. Swirltex take an already trusted form of wastewater filtration and makes it even better. Swirltex’s buoyancy enhanced membrane filtration process reduces membrane fouling
