Safe disposal of stone and concrete slurry is one of the most important aspects of a successful industrial operation. While many water filtration systems—like filter presses—fill specialized roles within an existing workflow, very few slurry filtration systems are truly capable of processing stone slurry from start to finish. With that in mind, we’re proud to introduce the WAVEXP system from

Exploring the Benefits of Advanced Sludge Dewatering Techniques

Sludge, the liquid produced during stone and concrete processing, is a highly hazardous substance. Because of the environmental threat it poses, sludge needs to be properly disposed of to protect the environment and maintain compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. Ignoring slurry removal laws and discharging into the surrounding area can lead to environmental damage, ecosystem collapse, and hefty

Types of Slurry Stores: An Overview

In the field of wastewater treatment and purification, effective slurry management is important—both for operational efficiency and to safeguard the environment. Whether you’re a business owner looking to maximize storage capacity or a community leader hoping to make local commerce more sustainable, a thorough understanding of slurry storage can help you make informed decisions about your operation.  Types of Slurry

Slurry Tank Applications: Storing, Mixing, and Processing Slurry

Comprehensive water treatment and slurry solutions require an expertly designed system to take in water and purify it so it can be safely reused or disposed of. Slurry tanks play an important role in these systems by storing, mixing, or otherwise processing large amounts of wastewater.   What Is a Slurry Tank?   A slurry tank is a large vessel designed to

Why Slurry Treatment Matters to the Environment

Slurry is a term used to describe a mixture of water and solid particles produced during industrial processes like mining, drilling, construction, and stonework. While slurry is sometimes fed back into a worksite or contained by a fixture like a slurry wall or slurry tank, it is more often transported away from the worksite and disposed of.   Because of its

The Health Effects of Silica Exposure

Every worksite in the stone and concrete industries needs to manage silica particle exposure. Silica is a chemical agent, commonly found in industrial wastewater, that can cause long-term health problems to workers exposed to it. Over time, symptoms compound, eventually leading to serious problems. Taking proper precautions to minimize silica exposure is a critical part of keeping workers safe and
