ChemicalIn chemical production, miniscule deviations can have a disastrous impact. Wastewater treatment is no different.
Keep your focus on the chemistry that makes you money.
Let our experts handle the biochemistry that keeps your plant compliant, efficient, and easy to run.
Everyone has a role to play in the success of your business. As your wastewater treatment requirements grow due to increased productivity, rising rates from municipal treatment plants, or simply the need to replace rapidly-aging equipment, let us be your partner in wastewater treatment.
We supply, install, and maintain proven treatment systems so your facility can run more efficiently.
Whether you need a small-footprint COD removal, an upgrade to an existing activated sludge basin, or are frustrated with aeration membranes that are lasting a fraction of the manufacturer’s promised lifecycle, Nexom has the proven technology and the technical experts to help your engineers apply them at your facility.
And if you want to take the burden off your stretched environmental staff to maintain your system long-term, our SiteWorks aftermarket service squads are specially trained and equipped to do just that.
Keeping things equalized
Unless you’ve reached a scale of production that ensures your using the same amount of water, for the same purposes, every day, chances are an equalization tank can help. By holding and mixing several days’ or weeks’ water in the tank, you can bring down the peaks that cause the biggest surcharges from your municipal plant or cause bigger issues for your existing wastewater infrastructure thanks to feast and famine conditions.
The aeration in an equalization tank is not about treatment; its about mixing the wastewater, keeping solids from settling, and ensuring subsequent treatment process don’t get overloaded one day and starved the next. This is where EDI’s CoarsAir coarse bubble shines; by providing superior mixing with the minimum in maintenance, it’ll keep your equalization tank mixed
CoarsAir mixing comes in multiple forms, including our stainless Max, Wide-Band, Flex Cap, and Hex, so you’ll get the configuration that fits your needs and budget.
Did you know?
CoarsAir mixing can extend the life of your system by equalizing solids and loading and preventing sludge buildup.
More than a decade ago, Leprino Foods, globally one of the largest mozzarella makers, started taking EDI up on our Aeration for life™ promise.
Make your aeration last longer with the right membrane
Your wastewater is not gentle. Not only do your mounting configuration and diffusers need to be made out of materials hardy enough to stand up to your industrial-strength waste, but choose the wrong membrane, and you could end up replacing them in months rather than years.
Our wastewater treatment experts will help you select from EDI’s series of FlexAir fine-bubble membranes—whether it’s EPDM, HTPE, our proprietary PTFE-embedded Matrix™ and Matrix Plus™ membranes, or a special polymer designed just for you—to keep your fine-bubble aeration system operating at its peak for longer and saving you money.
FlexAir fine-bubble aeration systems consist of variable configurations (like fixed grids or ModulAir), diffusers (like panels, tubes, and discs), and membranes (like EPDM, PTFE-embedded Matrix, and more).
Did you know?
Even if you have existing aeration, efficiency cost savings could pay for the cost to maintain or upgrade your system.
Upgrading to FlexAir Streamline® diffusers enabled Lisbon, Portugal’s Frielas wastewater treatment plant to achieve an SOTE of 38.5%, surpassing the the requested SOTE of 37.75%, an efficiency of ~6.6%/m.
Expand your treatment capacity, not your footprint
If you’re like many chemical plants, you’ve had to be at the top of your wastewater treatment game for decades. But as production gets more efficient and regulations on your treated effluent gets tighter, systems that were built to manage yesterday’s wastewater many no longer meet your needs today. At the same time, extra space to expand your treatment may come at a high price, if it is available at all.
You may think that you don’t have the space or money to cut your loading, but you also might not know of the BioPorts MBBR. With its HPDE media providing a perfect home for the bacteria that breaks down your organic loading, a BIoPorts MBBR can handle high-strength and highly-variable wastewater. It does so in a way that’s easy to run, low maintenance, and so efficient on space, it can fit in spaces you might never have considered wastewater treatment could fit.
Did you know?
Because the BioPorts media breaks up bubbles, low-maintenance coarse bubble aeration gets fine-bubble-level oxygen transfer efficiencies.
BioPorts MBBR media has a proprietary design that maximizes durability and protected surfaces.
Leeds, AL was wondering whether their tight site had the real estate to upgrade their treatment capacity. Then they met the BioPorts MBBR.
Remove more solids (Even get reuse-ready)
Solids removal can help reduce your municipal treatment surcharges, and could be more economical than you might imagine. With the infini-D Zero-Downtime series of cloth filters, you’ll remove particles down to 5 microns in size, and thanks to our drum filter configuration, small chemical producers with flows up to 380 L/min (100 GPM) have a more efficient, small footprint solution.
And because it’s part of the infini-D series of cloth filters, using our California Title 22-compliant cloth media, your wastewater will be one step closer to be ready for reuse. (Of course, whether you’re into the latest trend to make beer out of cleansed wastewater may vary, contact us if you’re intrigued.)
Did you know?
The infini-D cloth disk filter is flexible enough to be installed into concrete tanks, steel tanks, even specific pre-existing tankage.
Only infini-D Zero-Downtime filters have individual effluent ports, the key to internal redundancy.
Camp Verde, AZ’s little leaguers play on infini-D filtered wastewater, reused to irrigate the town’s baseball diamonds.
