Have damage from a leak? Looking to renovate a kitchen or washroom? Want to design a space to support any mechanical equipment and noise? Hometech Environmental Ltd. has you covered.
At Hometech Environmental Ltd., we know how important water is to your everyday life. It’s one of the most popular substances for everyday cleaning, transferring energy, transporting harmful substances and other industrial processes. To make sure your water works best for your activities, we offer water treatment in Aurora and surrounding areas.
Industrial HVAC & Water Treatment around Aurora
Water is immensely important for the performance of your heating and cooling systems. When you have a high-quality water treatment program, you can expect the performance of your heat transfer equipment to go up. The same goes for cooling systems.
Industrial HVAC and water treatment can apply to the following equipment:
To make sure your steam boiler has the best steam quality and protection against corrosion and scaling, you need a water treatment program. If you properly maintain your steam boiler and treat it well, you will improve your operational costs as your heat transfer and fuel consumption capacities will be well taken care of.
Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers
Your cooling tower is there for you as an open system that rejects heat by evaporating water. The evaporation and exposure to outdoor elements can leave this system vulnerable to scaling, fouling and microbiological growth, including Legionella bacteria. You can avoid this potential problem by using our well-designed treatment program.
Closed Loop Heating and Cooling Systems
To keep your closed loop heating and cooling systems properly regulating your temperature, you need to make sure they receive appropriate treatment programs for controlling corrosion, fouling and harmful microbiological growth. You should keep an eye on your closed loop heating systems in particular as heat transfer fluids, such as glycols, can perform poorly without proper maintenance.
Waste Water Treatment for Aurora’s Surrounding Communities
We all want to make sure we can happily live on Earth, and part of keeping that a reality is making sure we minimize the waste we leave around the environment. One possible way of doing this is by removing contaminants from our waste water.
Waste water treatment can apply to the following substances:
Oil and Grease
You might not realize it, but oil and grease are not uncommon contaminants in waste water. They can come from a variety of sources, including food and beverage processing, industrial manufacturing, metal preparation and metal working, lubricants, cleanings and many others.
While gravity pits and traps are used to remove oil and grease, these contaminants can often be found as an emulsion in water. When that happens, you need a chemical treatment to break up the emulsified oils.
If you discover COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) and BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) in your water, you should turn to Hometech Environmental Ltd. right away! These two chemicals are considered to be general indicators of pollution.
You should also be on alert for problematic substances like TSS (Total Suspended Solids) and the chemical phosphorus/phosphate.
The best way to control the acidity and other chemical-related issues with chemical water is through neutralization. This water treatment involves adding an acidic or caustic agent to decrease the pH of water until it is at an appropriate level.
Coagulation and Flocculation
Wastewater streams can eventually form coagulation, which is when the stability of charges present in the water break up and form a pin-floc. A pin-floc is a tiny particulate that is barely visible, and once enough of them start bridging links together, they create flocculation, resulting in larger particulates that can settle or float better. Both of these activities can affect pH, so it’s best to look for a specialized treatment to make sure they don’t negatively affect your water.
Sometimes found in wastewater, water-based paints have pigments and dispersants that can make treating the water they’re in more difficult. However, it is possible with coagulation and flocculation!
When you spot the following heavy metals in your wastewater, you should look for water treatment:
Treatment for heavy metals includes the coagulation and flocculation process, controlled precipitation from pH or specialized polymer chemistry that targets specific metals or ion exchange resins.
As with any liquid-solid separation process, there will always be a given volume of sludge that you’ll have to manage. But using a dewatering process can help lower the moisture content of the sludge you get, which can help reduce handling and disposal fees. One of the more popular but work-heavy dewatering processes involves using a filter-press, belt-press and centrifuge. A simpler option is to use gravity filters and containers.
Hydrocarbon Absorption Polymer
You can remove hydrocarbon-based oils with a highly specialized filter media that absorbs stable, inert solid polymer. It can capture oils that are one to three times its weight and will keep all the oil when satured.
Such technology is perfect for removing motor oil, heating oil, kerosene and other fuels from wastewater.
