Wastewater Evaporation Technology

Evaporation technology offers the simplest and most effective approach to industrial wastewater minimization. ENCON Wastewater Evaporators are able to handle a wide range of waste streams simultaneously and are a great option for manufacturing processes that may expand or change in the future.

Many companies that generate industrial wastewater are hauling their water for disposal at a high cost per gallon. Other companies are treating the wastewater, often with labor and chemical intensive processes, and are having to adhere to increasingly strict discharge limits to their local sewer authority.

ENCON Drum and Thermal Evaporators offer an alternative to hauling and treating by safely evaporating wastewater to atmosphere at a dramatically lower cost. ENCON Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC) Evaporators recover and recycle wastewater as distilled water for reuse or discharge to the sewer. ENCON MVC Evaporators are very energy efficient with typical energy costs in the range of $0.01 – 0.02 per gallon of distilled water. Finally, the ENCON Drum Dryer will efficiently dewater concentrated residues to a dry condition, in most cases, for landfill disposal.

All ENCON systems are designed to operate off shift and unattended to minimize manpower requirements and cost. ENCON Sales Engineers will work with you to qualify applications based on ENCON lab and pilot scale testing. The ENCON approach is consultative with special focus on providing solutions with financial justification and regulatory compliance.

MVC Evaporator

MVC Evaporator

The ENCON Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC) Evaporator is a breakthrough in wastewater recovery technology that converts dirty wastewater into a high quality distilled water for only $0.01 -0.02 per gallon.

Thermal Evaporator

Thermal Evaporator

Wastewater minimization with evaporation capabilities ranging from 10 to 400 gallons per hour. Many heat sources to choose from. Can be adapted to capture water vapor as distilled water.

Drum Evaporator

Drum Evaporator

Excellent low cost solution for low volume industrial wastewater treatment. Can be used on tough application like thermal evaporator bottoms as well as water based paint, ink and adhesives.

Drum Dryer

Drum Dryer

NEW PRODUCT! Use as a standard drum evaporator, then set it in dryer mode where the concentrated slurry is heated and gently mixed to a dry residue.

Air Scrubber

Air Scrubbers strip out contaminants from exhaust stacks typically by trickling a stream of salt solution through a bed of media to extract contaminants by putting them into solution.

Compressor Condensate

Compressor condensate wastewater is generated during hot and humid weather as part of the process of condensing shop air to provide compressed air for machine tools.

Dye Penetrant

Dye penetrant wastewater includes the presence of a fluorescent dye at about 2-3% in the wastewater. Dye penetrants are used as a method of testing weld integrity to confirm there are no leaks.

Ink Paint Glue

Ink, Paint, and Glue wastewaters are some of the toughest wastewaters to deal with due to their tendency to coat functional components of the wastewater treatment equipment.

Metal Finishing

There are many types of wastewater generated in metal finishing. These include vibratory / tumbling wastewater, stamping wastewater, die casting wastewater and polishing wastewater.

Part Cleaning Parts cleaning is almost entirely water-based since the Montreal Protocol forced companies to abandon chlorinated fluorocarbons (CFC's) and solvent degreasers.

Plating Rinse

Plating rinse wastewater is one of the most common applications for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. Wastewater from plating rinse tends to be rather corrosive.

Reverse Osmosis Reject

Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology has been used for years in various industries to separate dissolved solids from water by forcing the water through a semi-permeable membrane.

Spent Coolant

Waste coolant or spent coolant wastewater is one of the more common applications for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators.

Zero Liquid Discharge

Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) describes a process that completely eliminates liquid discharge from a system.

Landfill Leachate

Landfill leachate is the runoff water that occurs from operational or closed landfills.

Evaporator Applications

If your waste stream is substantially water, it is likely to be an excellent application for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. Click the link above to see more applications.
