Using Filter Presses in Flue Gas Desulfurization Wastewater Treatment

Coal-Fired Power Plants are Producing Over Half of Our Nation’s Electricity

Coal is the primary resource in the U.S. for producing electricity, and is currently generating over half of the electrical power used in our nation today. Coal offers over 274 billion tons of untapped supplies, which according to Industrial Water World, is enough to energize America for 250 years. New coal-fired power plants are being built and existing U.S. plants are being retrofitted for environmental compliance.

Coal combustion results in energy release, solid waste produced as bottom ash and fly ash, and flue gas emissions to the atmosphere. These gas emissions are made up of sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide and other pollutants. About two thirds of SOx and a quarter of all NOx in our atmosphere come from the generation of electric power from coal and other fuels. SOx causes acid rain, and NOx creates atmospheric ozone.

SOx compliance requires the use of flue gas desulfurization (FGD). One of the most effective methods used in the U.S. to desulfurize flue gas is wet scrubbing, which can achieve SOx removal efficiency of greater than 90%. (Source: waterworld.com).

Flue Gas Desulfurization Wastewater Treatment

Following the wet scrubbing FGD process, the resulting wastewater must be treated before being released to surface water. FGD wastewater is highly complex, and its composition can vary significantly between plants. Flue gas desulfurization wastewater is often made up of multiple key contaminants, including high concentrations of TDS and TSS, nitrites and nitrates and trace amounts of heavy metals.

Because of its unique composition, FGD wastewater requires several steps to meet National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) requirements prior to discharge. This treatment typically includes the following steps: Calcium sulfate (gypsum) desaturization, primary clarification, equalization, trace metals precipitation, secondary clarification, filtration and solids dewatering. (Source: powermag.com).

While the design of a FGD wastewater treatment system can vary by power plant due to differences in contaminants, a filter press is commonly used for the separation of solids from liquids in the waste stream. After dewatering in a filter press, the solids are discharged as a filter cake for disposal in a landfill. The treated wastewater is either discharged to surface water or polished with a gravity filter to further reduce suspended solids prior to discharge.

Top Sources of Industrial Wastewater

A Look at Wastewater-Heavy Industries

Almost all industries produce some form of wastewater. Equipment designed for solid-liquid separation, such as a filter press, provides for the reuse of water and cost-effective disposal of dewatered solids. Here are some wastewater-heavy industries in the U.S. today.

Pulp and Paper

Paper manufacturing is an energy-and water-intensive industry. From biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) to chemical oxygen demand (COD), solids to chlorinated organic compounds, the pulp and paper industry generates a high volume of wastewater.

Mines and Quarries

Mining of metallic ores and precious metals can produce wastewater contaminated by rock particles, metals, acids and salts, as well as hydraulic oils.

Slant Plate vs. Low Profile Clarifier

SLANT PLATE CLARIFIERS (SPC)

M.W. Watermark Slant Plate Clarifier (SPC)

Slant plate clarifiers (also referred to as “inclined plate clarifiers”) have been used in industrial wastewater treatment processes to provide efficient solids removal across a wide range of applications.

One of the main advantages of SPCs over conventional horizontal clarifiers is the use of a series of inclined plates. This inclined plate design allows the settling area to be as much as 10 times more than the actual floor space occupied by the clarifier.

This helps you to achieve the maximum square footage out of your production floor space, which translates into greater efficiencies and cost savings for your operation.

M.W. Watermark Slant Plate Clarifier Floor Space Requirement Diagram

Another advantage of SPCs over traditional clarifiers is the general lack of moving parts. Oftentimes the only electrical/mechanical components are the influent pump and flash/flocculation tank mixers. This translates into less chance for mechanical failure, a safer environment and cost savings in energy.

Learn more about slant plate clarifiers.

LOW PROFILE CLARIFIERS (LPC)

M.W. Watermark Low Profile Clarifier: LPC-4-330

The low profile clarifier design also utilizes inclined plates to achieve a significant reduction in floor space. The LPC design increases in width as the design flow rate increases, without increasing the height of the tank. Because the height of the tank does not change, the LPC is ideal for low ceiling installations.

The LPC can also handle flow rates up to 1,100 GPM, which makes it ideally suited for low profile applications.

LOW PROFILE CLARIFIER PRODUCT FEATURES

  • Standard models up to 300 GPM (LPC-4 Series) and up to 1,100 GPM (LPC-8 Series).
  • Compact size minimizes floor space requirements.
  • Heavy duty steel construction, welds are dye penetrant tested.
  • Carbon steel units are sandblasted and two coats of epoxy applied to ensure full coverage and superior chemical resistance.
  • 1/8″ polypropylene plates standard.
  • Sludge outlet flanges.
  • Access hatches standard.

LOW PROFILE CLARIFIER OPTIONS

In addition to the standard features, our low profile clarifiers can also be equipped with:

  • Chemical Addition Tanks (CAT) – Chemical pre-treatment for optimal solids removal. Tanks include mixers, chemical pumps and NEMA 4X UL-508A labeled panel.
  • Influent feed, sludge discharge and effluent pumps.
  • Custom designs available.
  • PolyMark™ polymer delivery systems.
Low Profile Clarifier (LPC) Diagram
M.W. Watermark offers two series of low profile clarifiers, depending on ceiling height and design flow needs.

The LPC-4 Series offers a design flow maximum ranging from 30 to 300 GPM. – Download brochure

The LPC-8 Series ranges from 165 to 1,100 GPM. – Download brochure

WHICH TYPE OF CLARIFIER IS BEST SUITED FOR MY OPERATION?

Both M.W. Watermark’s slant plate and low profile clarifier series are designed to be tough and dependable, while at the same time being sensitive to tight budgets and maximizing production space.

Generally, the type and size of clarifier needed depends on the specific application and location, including design flow needs, floor space and ceiling height.

How a Commercial Car Wash Can Reuse Water and Save Money

Each time you wash your car, wastewater is created – it’s unavoidable. However, using a commercial car wash (either automatic or self-serve) rather than washing your car at home can help save water thanks to water recycling processes integrated into modern washing systems.

Automatic Car Wash Water Consumption

While it might seem like automatic car wash systems use excessive amounts of water, updated technology has made it considerably easier for owners to use water reclamation systems. These systems are designed to cleanse used water of debris, making it suitable for reuse. This helps minimize the amount of freshwater lost during each wash cycle – something that is simply not plausible during an at-home car wash.

While the average amount of water used by automatic car washes fluctuates, the water reclamation systems used in many washes help keep numbers quite low. According to the International Car Wash Association’s report, Water Conservation in the Professional Car Wash Industry, on a gallon-per-vehicle (gpv) basis, professional car washes use between 30 gpv for in-bay automatics to 70 gpv for frictionless conveyor car washes. However, the actual amount of water lost can be much less, depending on several factors, like the car wash design and season.

M.W. Watermark filter presses can be used to recycle car wash wastewater
Click to view our Recycle and Save infographic.

Self-Serve Car Wash Water Consumption

According to the Southwest Car Wash Association, a self-service car wash uses roughly 17-18 gallons of water per car – which is in stark contrast to the average 100 gallons or more of water used in standard home car washes as cited by the Western Car Wash Association. This is likely because, as a business, commercial washes are faced with not only the rising cost of fresh water, but also disposal costs along with rigid environmental regulations. To run their operations more efficiently while complying with regulations, wash owners can integrate a wastewater reclamation system.

Environmental Responsibility

Aside from repurposing valuable water, water reclamation systems used in car washes reduce disposal costs while helping to prevent detergents and other chemicals from polluting the environment. One method of water reclamation involves using a filter press, which is available through M.W. Watermark. Designed to remove solids from wash water while allowing soaps to be reused, our filter presses offer an easy opportunity to reduce the environmental footprint of your wash while maximizing its efficiency.

Using Filter Presses to Recycle Flowback and Produced Water

What is Hydraulic Fracturing?

Hydraulic fracturing (informally referred to as “fracking”) is an oil and gas well development process that involves injecting water, chemicals and additives (known as proppants) under high pressure into a shale rock formation. To keep fissures and fractures open, proppants such as sand or ceramics are commonly used. This process is intended to create new fractures in the rock as well as increase the size, extent and connectivity of existing fissures to reach oil and gas deposits. (Source: USGS.gov).

The hydraulic fracturing process requires the management of a great deal of water for the extraction of oil and gas. First, a substantial amount of water is used for the initial injection process. According to the USGS, water use can range from 1.5 million to about 16 million gallons per hydraulically fractured well depending on the nature of the rock formation and other factors. Next, the issues of flowback and produced water must be considered.

Flowback Versus Produced Water

Flowback water is a combination of the water, chemicals and proppants pumped into the ground that return to the surface over time as a result of pressure. Most of the flowback occurs in the first seven to ten days, while the rest can occur over a three to four week period. The flowback can be anywhere from 20 to 40 percent of the volume initially injected into the well. The remaining fluid is absorbed into the rock formation. (Source: idl.idaho.gov).

At some point in time, the water recovered from the well makes a transition from “flowback” to “produced” water. Produced water is composed of the minerals, petroleum residue, salt and other contaminants already present in the ground.

While flowback water can be considerable, it is the produced water that creates a much larger challenge for producers. On average in the U.S., between five and six barrels of water are produced for every barrel of oil that comes out of the ground. The Permian Basin in West Texas produces an even greater amount of water, at six to eight barrels of water per barrel of crude. This is equivalent to over 1,000 Olympic-size swimming pools full of water coming out of the Permian Basin alone each day! (Source: rbnenergy.com).

When collected from a well, the combined flowback and produced water contain a high amount of contaminants along with the original proppants. Producers must first clean and then either recycle or dispose of the water in a safe, environmentally responsible manner. Because of the sheer volume of water resulting from hydraulic fracturing operations, along with the need for a substantial amount of water on the front end of the process, many companies are now treating this water for reuse.

The Role of Filter Presses

Filter presses are often used as part of the water treatment process, separating the solids that are precipitated out of the water. A filter press can capture the majority of the particulate matter, and then the clean water can be routed back to the beginning of the process.
