WWx technology utilises an electrochemical process which controls, remediates waste effluents and is based on the principal of electro separation enforced by the anode and cathode electrodes when immersed in an ionised solution or suspension. The use of electricity in purifying laden mother liquids, natural and waste waters with different ionic species has proven to be one of the most environmentally friendly processes. Almost all components of treated waste waters are economically separated and reclaimed for further use.
WWx is commercially scalable through a modular approach, processing waste water from 10ltr/day up to 10,000m3/day. This modular approach provides inherent scalability and simplicity, including easy maintenance.
It can be manufactured and implemented rapidly in a full production environment and has low running costs through low energy, negligible chemical input requirement and self cleaning to stop inherent Calcium precipitation or biological fouling and clogging.
Initially incoming waste water is filtered. The waste water then passes through a series of WWx Conditioning Cells where all biological and organic matter is neutralized and microbiological bacteria are reduced or eliminated.
The conditioned waste water then passes into the WWx Separation Cells where the total dissolved solids (TDS) are reduced to the required standard. Any potential solid or liquid materials are recovered. The pH levels in the returning waste water is managed by the WWx system.
The WWx configuration has been designed to allow continued operation and easy & rapid maintenance. In the unlikely event of a problem with one of the cells, it can be simply taken off line for repair or maintenance leaving the rest of the system to operate efficiently and effectively.
