Some of our units that have been in operation for the past 8-10 years treat oil, grease and sludge, truck wash-down water, septic, grease trap from restaurants, rinse water from metal plating, municipal waste water, manufacturing waste water, mining waste and drinking water. You can use the same module to treat different waste streams, and you can also treat multiple waste streams

It can be used as an effective way to treat drinking water to remove silica, arsenic, uranium, Perchlorate, MTBE, virus and bacteria including E.coli.
