The Basics of Concrete Wastewater Treatment ChemREADY

The main goals of treating concrete wastewater are to restore the water’s pH to normal levels and remove aggregate. Depending on the exact application, you may want to employ other wastewater treatment strategies like using coagulants, flocculants, or corrosion inhibitors, if needed.. Restoring your water’s pH to normal levels requires lowering the basic pH of the water to a value around 7 ...

WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Protect the Wastewater Treatment Industry. Corrosion is a relentless enemy at wastewater treatment plants. Constant moisture and high levels of contaminants such as H 2 S work to eat away metal, reinforced concrete, and equipment of all types by causing rust and corrosion. Even corrosion-resistant metals such as aluminum and galvanized steel are at risk.
