Wastewater from the industrial and business industries can be contaminated with hazardous solids or chemicals. The term “pretreatment” in wastewater refers to the treatment of wastewater before the discharge has a chance to reach a treatment plant. This discharge may not be adequately treated at a municipal wastewater treatment plant, leading to damage in the environment as the water flows back into lakes or rivers.
Pretreating the wastewater before it’s discharged into the sanitary sewer line is a necessary step in the treatment process. Depending on the application, ParkUSA has a wide range of interceptors and separators to meet your needs in wastewater pretreatment.
When plumbing drainage systems include the discharge of corrosive, toxic and flammable wastes, special attention should be placed in treating the waste. Such untreated waste can physically damage a building’s plumbing system as well as the environment.
The Lint Interceptor, Grease Interceptor, Sand-Mud Interceptor and Solids Interceptor are the four types, which ParkUSA manufactures in house. As the different names of each interceptor already indicates, each of them is used for specific purposes and in certain environments.
Wastewater that contains significant amount of oils or solids, that interfere with the proper drainage and treatment of wastewater, must be treated before being discharged into the sanitary sewer system.
A Sample Well is used in sewer applications to allow for periodic sampling of the wastewater (usually required by the Administrative Authority). Samples are taken from the sample port or by removing the cover.
