Storing Leachate and Condensate in Poly Processing Tanks

Leachate and condensate from landfills can contain hazardous constituents either as a direct result of the waste disposed in the facility (e.g., household hazardous wastes) or as a result of the breakdown of the chemical compounds found in waste (e.g., leachate derived constituents).

Storing Polymers in Poly Processing Tanks

Polymers are used in the headworks of wastewater treatment plants to facilitate the flocculation or coagulation of suspended solids to produce large curds of solid materials. They also aid in de-watering of digester cake, reducing the water content and permitting easier, less expensive transport of waste materials to the landfill.

Maintaining The Proper Temperature With Poly Processing Tanks

Maintaining the proper temperature of a chemical is often critical for safe storage. With Poly Processing tanks, heat pads and insulation are available to maintain the specific temperature of the chemical being stored. Heating pads and foam insulation combine to maintain the chemical temperature even when the tank is exposed to lower ambient temperatures.

Understanding the Barium Removal Process

Barium is a chemical found at relatively low levels in nature; however, if it seeps into the drinking water and it is consumed regularly, it can cause a variety of potential health problems. Due to these significant health risks, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has ordered all water treatment plants in areas with higher levels of barium to remove its contents from the water prior to releasing it to the public for consumption.

How Hydraulic Fracturing Works

Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking or fracing, is the process of making small cracks or fractures in underground rocks to release the oil or natural gas inside. Scientists must analyze the physical characteristics of the rocks to be fractured before fracking can begin.
