Glass Fabrication Wastewater Recycling

Glass slurry fines are dewatered in a filter press to form a filter cake for disposal, while the water is available for reuse.

Benefits of Recycling Water

Glass processing operations are similar to stone fabrication shops in that they usually undertake various tasks that use a lot of water and also produce a lot of wastewater. However, although there are generally less solids to be removed from the glass wastewater slurry, glass shops generally run an even higher volume, higher speed operation.

With stringent regulations and requirements for running fabrication shops, it’s important to ensure you are always compliant while reusing water whenever possible.

Installing wastewater treatment equipment not only keeps you in compliance but also provides a convenient operation in your workplace as well as significant savings. At M.W. Watermark™, we offer wastewater treatment equipment for fabrication shops that helps to reduce costs and eliminate fines.

Many fabrication shops can attest that water bills can be undeniably overwhelming. If your business has limited or no access to an adequate water supply, then recycling the wastewater makes sense. For example, if you operate in a rural setting where you only use water wells, then recycling equipment helps to eliminate the hurdles of working with an insufficient water supply.
