Industrial wastewater comes in various forms ranging from wastes from the mining industry, food industry, energy industry to municipal waste tailings. The wastewater composition depends entirely on the industry and process generating it and can range from transition metals, base metals, heavy metals, salts, acids, organics, microbial matter and other minerals, many of which need to be managed by the use of specific treatment processes and equipment.
For example, wastewater form the mining industry is a metal-rich due to chemical reactions between water and rocks, while that from the food industry is rich in different kinds of fats and proteins. Hence any treatment system that operates on industrial water needs to be robust and applicable to different kinds of contaminants with high efficiency and tailorable output water quality.
Why choose SWT-CDI?
SWT-CDI (Capacitive Deionization) technology works in both faradaic and non-faradaic mode of operations. In non-faradaic mode, it can extract all kinds of charged contaminants, like metal ions, chlorides, sulphates, nitrates, and even microbial matter in water. Correspondingly, in the faradaic mode of operation the system can break down organic contaminants in water, hence it applicable for a wide range of contaminants at low operating cost.
- Low maintenance costs and high durability
- Constant water quality feedback to maintain output water quality
- Remote monitoring and control with data storage facilities
- Performance independent of water temperature
- Tailorable water quality for reuse or discharge
