Wastewater Treatment Systems for TanneriesHydroflux Industrial has extensive experience in wastewater treatment for tanneries including all aspects of system design and construction of primary and biological processes and complete sludge management systems.
At Hydroflux Industrial, our engineers are fully conversant with the internal production processes of tanneries and as such, we understand the sources of the wastewater, along with the fluctuations commonly experienced with flow and load. We know the effects that different methods of hide preservation have on the wastewater characteristics and how various chemicals used in the tanning process vastly change the nature of the wastewater stream. Furthermore, we know that accidents do happen and armed with this knowledge, our robust plants are always designed to consistently perform under all conditions.
Our complete knowledge of your process and understanding of your wastewater will ensure that all Hydroflux Industrial wastewater treatment plant designs are optimised and tailored specifically for your plant.
The characteristics of tannery wastewater vary considerably depending on the nature of tanning process. Factors such as, the amount of water used, the methods of hide preservation, and the chemical methods used for tanning the hides greatly affect the wastewater quality.
Treatment of wastewater from tanneries almost always requires screening followed by a chemical physical process to remove solids, grease and some other potentially toxic compounds. If the wastewater is being discharged to the sewer system, then quite often this primary treatment stage will be adequate. If wastewater is being discharged to the environment then a very robust biological system such as MBR, MBBR, multiple SBR units or a hybrid combination will be required due to the resistant and toxic compounds present and the wastewater’s relatively low biodegradability
Hydroflux Industrial has the experience and an extensive product range to design any industrial wastewater treatment plant from 10m3 to over 10ML per day. We will cover all aspects of the design and construction of primary and biological treatment plants and the associated sludge management systems.
We will always ensure full compliance for environmental discharge, or reuse.
Hydroflux Industrial supply a comprehensive range of equipment and process including
- Screens of all varieties including wedge wire, perforated mesh in above ground and in channel designs.
- Effluent storage tanks. High quality glass coated steel tanks or epoxy coated concrete tanks to last a lifetime.
- HyDAF systems. Performance and quality DAF systems purpose engineered by Hydroflux Industrial.
- Chemical storage, handling and dosing systems.
- Biological systems. Stable and robust biological processes based on anaerobic ponds or high rate systems, conventional aerobic activated sludge processes, sequential biological reactors, membrane bio reactors, moving bed and fixed film reactors.
- High efficiency nutrient removal processes.
- Sludge thickening , dewatering , drying and conveying systems for primary and secondary sludge.
DESIGN CONSTRUCTION OPERATION
Engaging a professional wastewater treatment company to look after the entire wastewater project is a convenient, economical and hassle free option for industry.
Hydroflux Industrial can provide all process design works, manufacture and fabrication, construction and even complete operation of your wastewater treatment plant.
When Hydroflux Industrial provides complete solutions, we can either undertake a contract on a turnkey basis or work together with building services engineers and other construction professionals such as architects, structural engineers and quantity surveyors to ensure that the project is delivered smoothly, without interruption and on time.
BUILD OPERATE TRANSFER (BOT) FINANCING
The Hydroflux Group is able to offer a Build Operate & Transfer (BOT) option for water and wastewater assets in Australia and New Zealand. This innovative partnership arrangement strengthens existing strong bonds between Hydroflux and their customers for the long term.
Hydroflux, represented by a special purpose vehicle dedicated to the project, supplies the design, construction, financing, and operation of the water or wastewater plant. The plant is transferred to the client at the end of the contract, which is generally around 10 years.
Hydroflux also purchase existing water and wastewater plants on a similar basis, which releases cash to our clients for either returning or distributing to investors or for funding other investments in their core business.
The multidisciplinary structure of the Hydroflux group including design, construction, equipment supply and operation makes Hydroflux the ideal BOT water and wastewater partner.
Please contact Hydroflux if would like to explore the option of either acquiring a new water or wastewater facility without capital outlay or would like to free up cash by selling your existing water or wastewater assets.
Our employees and clients are our most valuable asset. Individuals make a difference. Knowledge sharing and teamwork make the difference
