When it comes to industrial wastewater management, there are a number of factors that you have to consider. Depending on what industry you work in, the particulates and contaminants found in your effluent will be vastly different than if you worked in another sector. For example, food production will produce a number of contaminants that are not found in car manufacturing – but there will possibly be many similarities too.

Essentially, it’s an extremely complicated process, one that requires a bespoke system to ensure that the methods that are being used are appropriate and effective. You’ll often find that multiple systems are used in conjunction with each other to treat the effluent at different stages. One such system used in industrial wastewater management is vacuum evaporation.

Below, we’ll outline how effective it is and where you might use it.

What is Vacuum Evaporation?

Put simply, vacuum evaporation is when effluent is treated using boiling. Separating the water from the particles in it by raising that water to boiling point, which ensures clean water evaporates and the contaminants are left behind.

Why ‘Vacuum’?

The reason it works so well is because the boiling point is reduced by carrying out the whole process within a vacuum.

What does This Type of Treatment Help With?

For industrial wastewater management specialists, vacuum evaporation is a great tool for cleaning the effluent in a number of sectors. You’ll find it used in food production, chemical work, manufacture, and pharmaceuticals. It’s a versatile and effective tool, considering its relative simplicity. In fact, this versatility means that you find it used in all sorts of situations within this area, and for the actual effectiveness of the treatment, it’s highly competitive with other similar methods.

Why Use It?

There are a number of reasons why this method might be employed within a larger system of industrial wastewater management. For starters, the use of a lower boiling point means that your bottom line will thank you for the energy savings. It’s an all-round environmentally friendly method of wastewater treatment – a process that can sometimes be less green than is ideal.

It is a very simple process and, while things can go wrong and equipment can malfunction as with any process, the simplicity means that there are fewer moving parts and more efficiency as a result.

Finally, it is highly effective. You’ll find this technique used frequently across a number of industries because of how effective it is at removing all manner of contaminants and particulates.

Expert Consultations

If you or your organisation are thinking that vacuum evaporation might be right for you, that’s great. But it should never be something you attempt without involving the professionals. It’s hard to overstate the importance of getting industrial wastewater management right – done wrong, and you might have a catastrophe on your hands. If you bring in reliable professionals with years of experience, then you’ll know you’re doing the right thing for the environment, and for your own company’s health.
