When the efficiency and sustainability of the processes highly depend on the pH value
Wastewater has the broadest scope of operation, as it is present in every industry, and pH is a crucial factor in the wastewater treatment processes
pH in wastewater treatment process
Wastewater is a cost factor in almost every plant. In many cases, it is being processed for reuse to make it more cost efficient. In the pre-treatment phase, pH value is very critical no matter which type of treatment is to be used – biological or chemical. Knowing the pH value of wastewater is crucial to defining the type and amount of chemicals to be used.
Continuous pH control can improve the wastewater treatment process and increase profitability by reducing chemical usage and further costs caused by time-consuming processes.
Wastewater mainly comes from:
- wire and special steel pickling baths, hot-dip galvanising plants, printers;
- anodising plants, power plants, refuse incinerator plants, rolling mills;
- electroplating, chemical plants, textile processing;
- communal sewage treatment plants, sugar factories, pulp factories, breweries, petrochemical plants.
