It’s just a fact of life that businesses that have an industrial background need to use a lot of water. In factories that do anything from processing to bottling to food production, water is used at various points throughout the chain.

Even doing something necessary like plant cleaning will use up a large amount of water; water that simply can’t be flushed back into the sewer.

Castle Water’s specialist partners can help businesses, that have to carry out industrial wastewater treatment, lower their water output, use technology to improve water efficiency, and most importantly, keep costs down.

Industrial wastewater treatment process

Industrial wastewater treatment takes a large volume of affected material, processes it through different stages and gets the remaining effluent to a stage where it can be safely disposed of.

Industrial plants and factories tend to have a mixture of liquids channelling through to a central wastewater area for processing, so knowing how to separate materials efficiently and safely is important.

When should a business have an industrial wastewater system?

A business should have an industrial wastewater system if they process a high volume of liquids and need to ensure that wastewater complies with their local regulatory standards.

Businesses that use chemicals en masse would also need to have a strong industrial wastewater system in place; one that reliably keeps water levels to a minimum for processing.

Affordable industrial wastewater treatment

For businesses that have multiple premises, Castle Water provides consolidated billing. This comes in handy if you have similarly sized factories in different locations, as it can help identify where potential water wastage is occurring and create opportunities to lower costs across the board.

Castle Water have specialists at hand to help UK based companies improve how they treat industrial wastewater and can use the systems to their benefit.

Can water be used as a solvent in industrial processes?

Many of the companies we provide business water services for are multi-site customers who work at an industrial level. It comes as no surprise that large scale manufacturing businesses will go through hundreds of litres of water per week. Water usage fluctuates from business to business and different companies will have varying levels of industrial wastewater management and trade effluent considerations.

How can I check if I am wasting water ?

With the right data, you can keep a close eye on your company’s water consumption and use the information to assess how successful any water-saving measures are. The first step is to install an Automatic Meter Reader that will give you real-time data on water usage. The smart technology will give you real-time information, from which you can work out what your expected water usage is in the production process. With this knowledge of what is normal, you can then use the data to assess the drop in water usage whenever you introduce water-saving measures.

An understanding of typical usage will also enable you to identify any leaks quickly. This will allow you to take swift action to get the leak repaired - which will save the potential costs of wasted water and also the expense and disruption of any later structural damage.

How can I recycle wastewater?

One of those solutions has the potential to revolutionise the water cycle all over the world, but you may not like the sound of it. Recycling wastewater from our kitchens, and yes, our toilets, to produce fresh, safe drinking water.

The process works by re-routing gallons of wastewater each day through a three-step treatment. The first is microfiltration of the treated wastewater to remove solids, oils and bacteria, before the resulting liquid goes through reverse osmosis, pushing it through a fine plastic membrane that filters out viruses and pharmaceuticals. The water is then treated with UV light to remove any remaining organic compounds, before joining the main groundwater supply, which must then pass strict quality controls and meet legal standards before distribution to households.

A similar system is already in place in Singapore, and the output surpasses World Health Organisation standards for potable use to the extent that a high proportion of the filtered water is directed for industrial uses requiring ultra-clean water. Over half of the Sub-Saharan African population faces water insecurity, but a wastewater recycling program started in Namibia has proven to have a positive impact on the availability of clean drinking water and a reduction in the spread of disease.

How important is water efficiency in the Industrial Sector?

Water efficiency in the industrial sector is of paramount importance.

Industry uses huge quantities of water and, at the same time, must also ensure compliance with trade effluent standards to ensure that the environment, public health and treatment works are protected.

How can I get a water efficiency audit?

We have produced a free downloadable guide on Water Efficiency designed to help businesses of all sizes to create and implement a water efficiency plan. It covers all aspects of saving water, from staff behavioural changes to recycling and reducing use.

We also undertake water efficiency audits that will take an in-depth look at your water usage and make recommendations for improvements that will save water in the long run, making your business more sustainable at the same time as improving your bottom line.
