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...

GPC Clear Solutions Are In The Medway Messenger

A chemical specialist cleans up in complex waste issues. GPC Clear Solutions, based on Medway City Estate, supplies chemicals for industrial effluent treatment and sludge de-watering. Founded by Griff Crouch in 2003, the family-run business supports customers in laboratories and on-site. " We work with our customers to ensure local authority compliance and improve plant operations," Griff said. GPC works with gas extraction pipe sealing in landfill and has developed a system that captures oil and releases water. It has also run successful trials at filling station forecourts. GPC, an approved supplier to UK Power Networks, is currently developing cushions and booms to combat waterborne contamination. When a long-term supplier stopped producing am in-demand chemical. GPC installed its own blending plant to make it. Griff said: "Having very little spare space, we had to carefully design the plant to ensure a safe working environment while maintaining product quality." GPC employs eight people, including an apprentice. It assigns top priority to workplace health and safety, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health...

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...

H2S Removal

H2S Removal

H2S Removal - Problem and Solutions Hydrogen Sulphide also known as H2S 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 levels...

Case Study 3 – Ready Made Meal Manufacturer

Foaming Issues A ready-made meal manufacture were having issues with excess foam at the effluent discharge point. Cleaning chemicals washed down from the CIP (cleaning in position) can contain cleaning agents that can cause foaming issues at the plant. This can also cause slip hazards and level sensor problems. GPC Clear Solutions Limited were able to identify the problem promptly and supplied them with a foam control system. The foam sensor was carefully installed to detect foam just prior to discharge. When foam was detected, a laboratory selected anti foam from our no foam range was added at the DAF outlet after the addition of GPC's coagulants and flocculants resulting in elimination of the foam at discharge. Our customer now has a fully automated foam control system that only uses anti foam when needed and has totally eradicated the issues they had with foam being discharged to the sewer. Overview Customer     Ready made meal manufacture Issue                Excessive foaming Action...
