pH Control in Wastewater

So you’ve run your cement wastewater and slurry through a filter press to clean it, and it’s ready to be reused or dumped—WRONG! You’re on the right path by making sure it’s clean and by not dumping wastewater, but you need to make sure the pH balance of the water is at the appropriate level. This is especially important when

Sludge vs. Slurry: What’s the Difference?

Are you curious about the difference between sludge and slurry? You may use the words interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. They are both by-products of similar processes in industrial, refining, and wastewater industries.   While they might be produced from similar processes, sludge and slurry are different, from their texture to their components.

OSHA’s New Silica Standards

  Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has recently changed the game for silica standards by requesting information of Table 1 of the Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard for Construction. The hope is that, with this extra information, more regulations could be put into place and fewer businesses and workers will feel the regulatory and safety burdens.   Silica, or silicon

What the Mud Hen Can’t Do

If your industry produces slurry as a by-product, you probably know that it’s not always easy to deal with. You have to manage it carefully so that you don’t violate any wastewater discharge regulations. The Mud Hen is a great concrete slurry water system. But let’s talk about what it can’t do.   It Can’t Make Your Slurry Disappear The
