When you work in the concrete and stone industries, wastewater is inevitable. It’s a byproduct of the work you do. While you can’t change the fact that wastewater is going to be produced, you can change how you deal with it—for the better. Properly handling wastewater isn’t just about complying with local and federal regulations. It’s also about doing the

Snow Pollution

Picture it: the snow is falling, creating a beautiful dusting on the road. The problem is, this almost never happens in Minnesota. Normally, Minnesotans and other Midwesterners receive massive amounts of snow at once that require big plows to go out and not only clear the snow out of the way, but to spread salt on the road. What happens

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. Sludge is thick and

Do I Really Need Dewatering Technology?

If you’re in an industry that deals with slurry as a by-product of grinding, cutting, polishing, or another method, you may be wondering if you need dewatering technology. Dewatering is the process of removing water from solid material or soil. The process can be completed several different ways—some easier than others—including wet classification, centrifugation, filtration, or another solid-liquid separation process.

Wells Precast – Case Study

In September of 2018, Wells Precast, a precast solutions provider in Albany, Minnesota had come to a crossroads with their efforts to deal with their slurry water generated from washing down their equipment. Their old filter press was no longer keeping up with their demand, and it was also in a separate building a few hundred yards from where their

Lack of Best Practices

It’s an unfortunate but true fact. There is a lack of industry standards when it comes to not only wastewater discharge, but a slew of other best practices. Best practices maintain a standard of quality. Best practices may be methods or techniques that are accepted as superior when compared to all other methods and techniques. These best practices produce the

Brewery Wastewater

Beer, or some form of it, can be traced back as far back as 5,000 years. From the beer of Medieval Europe during the Middle Ages, to the craft beer we know and love today, that’s a lot of beer consumption. Most people enjoy a good brew—it’s the third most consumed drink in the world—but many don’t realize that there’s

Settling vs. Filtration

When it comes to slurry and wastewater, there is no one size fits all treatment plan. The composition of slurry differs from industry to industry, whether it’s petroleum, stone fabrication, concrete, glass and tile, or something more unique like the food or brewing industry. Slurry should be treated on a case by case basis to determine whether a settling or

What Can Happen if You Discharge into the Storm Drain?

Dumping or discharging wastewater into storm drains is not only wrong—it’s illegal. Industrial wastewater, especially slurry, often contains contaminants or toxins that are harmful to both plants and animals. If sludge or slurry makes its way into rivers and lakes, it can wreak havoc on the environment and the natural ecosystems we all rely on.   One of the most common ways
