Saves money, eliminates the need for polymers and effectively acheives up to 99% removal of waste products.
Electrocoagulation uses a proprietary treatment chamber and electricity to treat a wide range of differing waste streams containing heavy metals, virus, bacteria, pesticides, arsenic, MTBE, cyanide, BOD, TDS, and TSS. Electrocoagulation is used to treat Municipal, Industrial, and Commercial wastewater.

How Electrocoagulation Works
Electrocoagulation uses a treatment chamber housing a series of vertically mounted iron blades and electricity to treat a wide range of differing waste streams. The process separates solids from the water molecule and can treat for example heavy metals, virus, bacteria, pesticides, arsenic, MTBE, cyanide, BOD, TDS, and TSS. It is used to treat Municipal, Industrial, and Commercial wastewater (eg; sewage treatment, dairy, plating shops, contaminated soil, steam cleaner and car wash water, mining, laundries, and textile dye).
Solids that are normally held in solution by the hydrogen bond in the water molecule are “shocked” in a chamber of electrified iron blades mounted vertically. This reaction breaks the hydrogen bond, and the solids drop out of solution. This removes and destroys contaminants in the water, and allows the solids to be filtered. What is left is the water molecule and solids in suspension.
Typically, the overall operating cost for operating EC is about .25 cents per 1,000 gallons. Some of our units that have been in operation for the past 8-10 years treat oil, grease and sludge, truck wash-down water, septic, grease trap from restaurants, rinse water from metal plating, municipal waste water, manufacturing waste water, mining waste and drinking water. You can use the same module to treat different waste streams, and you can also treat multiple waste streams.
Electrocoagulation can be used to replace chemical treatment and reduce/eliminate the use of polymers at a POTW. The treated water is suitable for irrigation and the biosolid suitable for compost. This could reduce the need for variances, and divert typical ocean discharge because it kills all virus and bacteria, creating instead treated water suitable for landscape irrigation. It can be used as an effective way to treat drinking water to remove silica, arsenic, uranium, Perchlorate, MTBE, virus and bacteria including E.coli.
