OilTrap Environmental, a leading manufacturer of electrocoagulation (EC) wastewater treatment systems, has introduced a new generation of electrocoagulation wash water treatment systems designed for wash water generated from washing vehicles and equipment. The EP-1WR and EP-2WR are economically priced and easy to operate.

ElectroPulse will process up to 100 gallons per minute (GPM) of wash water and is of a quality that can be recycled or discharged to a sanitary sewer. Average treatment cost is only US $0.003 per gallon or $3.00 per 1,000 gallons.

ElectroPulse system uses electrocoagulation, an electricity-based technology for wash water economically and on-site. The EC treatment process has proven successful in removing a variety of contaminants that are impossible or too expensive to be removed by filtration or chemical treatment systems. Among these contaminants are emulsified oil, TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon), suspended solids and heavy metals. Generally heavy metals are reduced to a hydroxide, allowing sludge that is separated through the ElectroPulse treatment process, to pass a TCLP (Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure) test.

The ElectroPulse wash water systems require small footprint and is modular for accommodating limited floor space. Systems are being used in many applications, including heavy equipment washing, marinas, military wash operations, forest products processing, aircraft refurbishing, auto auctions, equipment washing, and metal finishing and deburring.

Packaged with on-board automation, the ElectroPulse system is fully automated, which dramatically reduces the cost and time of maintenance often associated with on-site wastewater treatment systems. Also, there are no filters to clean or replace.

OilTrap Environmental, which has been manufacturing electrocoagulation water treatment systems since 1993, provides not only highly effective technology but a total solution approach through system design to meet your specific needs and requirements. OilTrap Environmental offers a free waste stream feasibility study using a representative sample of wastewater from your facility.
