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 …
The detrimental effects of poor waste management are visible in many parts of the world. Extensive pollution has forced mainstream industries to be more sensitive about their environmental impact. As a result, many industries are now investing in improved waste management and recycling equipment.
The Dieselcraft OC50 centrifuge is an affordable oil purifying device that works with a wide variety of oils. These include waste vegetable oil, used motor oil and Biodiesel. Read on if you would like to know more about how the Dieselcraft OC50 centrifuge works.
Dieselcraft is a manufacturing company that was established in 2002. The company …
Oil is one of the most challenging environmental pollutants to deal with after disposal. As such, several mechanisms exist to safely eliminate it from the general waste before disposal.
In industrial settings, oil can get mixed up with wastewater through spills, leaks or when cleaning the machinery. Waste oils can also contaminate coolants and other fluids during industrial operations.
Separating oils from other fluids before disposal has several advantages. For starters, it lowers the costs and complexity of disposal. It also enables some industries to recycle waste oil and water. This can significantly lower their overall production costs.
The adverse effects of global warming have promoted the use of renewable energy resources all over the world. The use of biofuels is one of the main ways to reduce carbon emissions in the transport and industrial sectors.
Fuel quality determines the longevity and overall output of internal combustion machines. Many industries use fuel purification systems to keep their engines free from impurities. Interfil is one of the leading suppliers of fuel purification equipment in Australia. Read on if you would like to know about the company’s solutions for biofuel purification.
What are biofuels?
Biofuels are renewable energy alternatives to fossil fuels. …
