Sludge Dewatering

Sludge dewatering is the process of removing water from the sludge i.e. generated by DAF or clarification. The sludge produced from a DAF or clarifier will often still contain a large amount of water, this means that significant amount of storage area your sludge holding tank is now full of water that could go to sewer. This water along with the sludge is typically pumped away from the site in tankers at significant cost to your business. GPC’s high molecular weight flocculants in conjunction with a screw press can greatly increase the efficiency of the treatment process, often eliminating the need for tankers saving your business thousands of pounds a year as well as reducing your carbon footprint!* The use of an organic primary coagulant in conjunction with a flocculent can greatly enhance the results given on a belt press or plate and frame press. Sludge dewatering is effective for recycling water and the process will also reduce disposal costs. Key Benefits Reducing your carbon footprint. You can reduce your carbon footprint with sludge dewatering. Transport accounts...

Foam Control

GPC Clear Solutions Limited can offer a complete range of anti-foam products together with a unique foam control system. Foam can cause many problems within a process. It can cause slip hazards by overflowing onto the floor. It can block filters, cause pumps to air lock and confuse instruments such as level sensors. GPC Clear Solutions Limited can provide a complete range of anti-foam products that will deal with foam in any industrial application. A common problem with foam is that it can be unpredictable. This often means overdosing with anti-foam products “To Multi-sense Probebe on the safe side”. GPC Clear Solutions Limited can provide a completely automatic anti-foam dosing system. This unique system detects the level of foam in a vessel and will only dose anti-foam when it is needed. The sensor is designed to discriminate between the residual deposits of foam that build up on the sensor itself and the foam being created in the process. No matter how much the...

Smell Eggs At Work? Could be H2S. H2S Removal Experts GPC.

H2S Removal – Problem and Solutions Hydrogen Sulphide also is known as H2S and is a colourless gas that produces a foul-smelling odour similar to rotten eggs, It is extremely poisonous, corrosive and flammable. Hydrogen Sulphide results from the microbial breakdown of organic matter this can include human and animal waste, sludge storage tanks, sewers and associated pipelines. H2S is heavier than air and can often fill a building from the ground up. The mixture of H2S air is explosive and burns with a blue flame. Consequences of Corrosion Hydrogen Sulphide forms acidic gases that are very corrosive to most metals. Copper is particularly susceptible to attack resulting in damage to costly electronics and electrical components. Hydrogen Sulphide, when combined with water vapour, leads to the creation of Sulphuric Acid that attacks concrete in sewer lines causing severe degradation that can lead to sewer collapse and rapid system failure. Symptoms of H2S Poisoning H2S irritates the mucous membranes of the body of the respiratory tract, following short term exposure to low PPM...

Wastewater Treatment with PolyClay

Wastewater Treatment with PolyClay

GPC Clear Solutions limited Wastewater Treatment with PolyClay Excellent filtration of your wastewater can be achieved through flocculation treatment using PolyClay. Wastewater treatment using the PolyClay products is fast and easy. PolyClay wastewater treatment products are based on natural minerals and work by pH adjustment, precipitation, ion exchange, coagulation and flocculation. The PolyClay wastewater treatment system offers many advantages over traditional treatment methods. These advantages include: Wastewater treatment with PolyClay can eliminate the handling of strong liquid acids and alkalis. PolyClay typically eliminates the need to pre-mix polymer solutions prior to waste water treatment. PolyClay usually encapsulates the contaminants to prevent them leaching back out of the sludge at the landfill site. This reduces the hazardous classification of the sludge and hence substantially reduces disposal costs. PolyClay significantly improves the dewatering of the sludge produced after wastewater treatment and prevents blinding of the filter press or filter media. Filter press cakes will typically contain 50 - 60% solids. PolyClay is usually more efficient than conventional chemistry in...

COD Removal – Chemical Oxygen Demand

What is COD in Wastewater? COD or Chemical Oxygen Demand is the total measurement of all chemicals in the water that can be oxidized. TOC or Total Organic Carbon is the measurement of organic carbons. How is COD measured? At the GPC Clear solutions Laboratory, Our trained laboratory technicians test for Chemical Oxygen Demand using a spectrophotometer. The method involves using a strong oxidizing chemical, potassium dichromate Cr2O72-, to oxidize the organic matter in solution to carbon dioxide and water under acidic conditions. Often, the test also involves a silver compound to encourage oxidation of certain organic compounds and mercury to reduce the interference from oxidation of chloride ions. The sample is then digested for approximately 2 hours at 150°C. The amount of oxygen required is calculated from the quantity of chemical oxidant consumed. Why is the reduction of COD important? The reduction of Chemical Oxygen Demand is important because Higher COD levels mean a greater amount of oxidizable organic material in the sample, which will reduce dissolved oxygen...
