Filtration systems are essential components of everyday life whether you are at home, driving to work or in an industrial setting. Homes and offices need air filtration systems to keep the air free from dust and contaminants. Vehicles and heavy machinery need oil and fuel filtration systems to prevent the contamination of their engines. Industrial facilities use filtration systems to purify their waste gases and wastewater before disposal.
The efficiency of all filtration devices relies on the quality of their filtration media. Yet, the substance and contaminants you are dealing with determine the type of filtration devices and filter media …
Waste management in urban settings is challenging due to infrastructure limitations. The imbalance between the increasing demand and limited supply of essential services has led to revolutionary innovations. Sludge dewatering systems are among the innovations developed to improve wastewater management in urban areas.
What Are Sludge Dewatering Systems
Sludge is a mixture of liquid and solid waste. Yet, treatment and disposal of the sludge mixture are costly. Sludge dewatering systems separate the solid and liquid elements of wastewater. Separating the two enables both compounds to minimize the cost and complications involved when transporting, treating and disposing of the wastewater.
Here at Interfil, we’re proud to incorporate more renewable products into our range. As you probably know, manufacturing and industrial operations account for a significant percentage of Australia’s carbon emissions, so we want to help our clients take every step possible towards reducing their impact. One of those ways is by using biodegradable filter media.
Have you ever wondered what happens to the average filter material roll once you’ve finished with it? Unfortunately, because many air filter rolls and wastewater filtration rolls are petroleum-based, they can’t be broken down organically. This means they end up in landfill, which is something …
Whether you operate an everyday vehicle, heavy-duty road transport, a shipping vessel or any other craft that relies on fuel, you’ll know that contaminated fuel is never a good thing. Fortunately, help is at hand with the DieselCraft Fuel Bacteria Dip Slide.
What is the DieselCraft Fuel Bacteria Dip Slide?
This handy testing kit allows you to test your fuel regularly, without needing to drain the tank or transport the fuel elsewhere. Contaminated fuel can cause a whole range of problems, so it’s important to know that your fuel is clean.
The problem: In a manufacturing environment, oils, coolants and other lubricants are an essential part of operations. However, when these oils get mixed with water, it can create a range of problems. In order to dispose of used water appropriately, or even to reuse the water, it needs to be free of all contaminants.
In this example, process machinery has been washed down with water, therefore mixing oil and water together. When the water and oil mixture flows to the water collection …
Every manufacturing business wants to find ways to cut costs. Lowering operating costs gives you an overall greater profit margin on everything you make. When it comes to coolant, there’s obviously an expense attached to buying it in the first place. In that sense, you don’t want to waste what you have.
By the same token though, ineffective coolant and lubrication causes wear and tear on machinery. Considering the cost of new equipment or repairs, you obviously want to avoid unnecessary damage. So, here’s what you need to know about reducing costs with coolant filtration.
Why is coolant filtration important?
Coolant controls the …
The filtration of wastewater in industrial, mining and construction industries is a huge consideration in the modern world. Not only is it important from an environmental point of view, but it’s also crucial in maintaining equipment longevity. When we talk about wastewater filtration, we refer to any process that removes solids, oils, or chemicals from water, with a view to re-using that water safely and hygienically.\
There are several different methods used for wastewater filtration depending on the industry, scale, and application. Let’s take a deeper look at wastewater filtration.
Why is wastewater filtration important?
Firstly, the removal of particles and contaminants from …
While it’s not pretty, sludge is a significant part of many industrial processes. Dredging, sewer management, oil refinement, and more all result in some form of a sludge being produced. This solid and liquid mixture needs to be managed before filtration or disposal are carried out for a cost-effective and straightforward process. This process, referred to as sludge dewatering, is essential to waste management and wastewater processing for a variety of industries.
Keep reading to learn how sludge dewatering can help you, and your options for implementing it.
Sludge dewatering is the process of separating solids and liquids from each other. The …
