Upcoming Industrial Wastewater Treatment Presentations

With experts with over 100 years of experience combined, DMP Corporation has had the privilege to present at conferences, including the National Association for Surface Finishing’s annual SUR/FIN show, FABTECH, and other regional shows. Topics ranged from wastewater automation, and IoT applications to wastewater recycle and reuse. We’ve also presented webinars with the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and Engineering 360 powered by GlobalSpec.

These last three months of 2019 will be pretty busy for us. We’ll be exhibiting at FABTECH, the FPSA’s Process Expo, and the Engineers’ Society of West Pennsylvania’s International Water Conference (IWC) again. In addition to that, we’ll also have a booth at SouthTec for the first time this year and we’ll also present at the Railroad Environmental Conference. Visit our tradeshow page to see our schedule.

Presentation: Wastewater in a Circular Economy: Impacts and opportunities
Dates & Time: October 8th at 12:00 PM and October 10th at 10:00 AM

The show organizers thought the topic would be so intriguing that they offered us two slots! You definitely will have to come to see what Chris Dooley has to say about this important topic.

Presentation Abstract:
Circular economy is all about getting rid of the age-old mentality of make, use, and dispose of and embracing the idea of extracting the maximum value of resources through minimizing waste and recycling and reusing when appropriate.

Food producers are one of the most significant users of water. Being good corporate citizens, many have the laudable goal to reduce water usage while simultaneously increasing output. There are lots of opportunities to reduce water usage in operations, but what are the impacts downstream on wastewater compliance? Is zero-liquid discharge a feasible option? How can recycling and reuse of wastewater streams help achieve corporate environmental goals?

Now think about the water used in food production.

  • How much water is going down the drain?
  • How much of that water could be recycled and reused?

In our presentation, we’ll pinpoint ways food and beverage producers can reuse wastewater to maximize the value of their water usage. We’ll cover:

  • Circular economy and how wastewater treatment helps achieve company goals
  • Impacts of water efficiency programs in production on wastewater
  • Best areas in the process to recycle wastewater
  • Areas where you can reuse wastewater
  • How automation reduces labor & operational cost
  • Food safety concerns with reusing food & beverage wastewater

Presentation: ISC Optimizes Cleaning Process in the Rail Industry
Date & Time: October 22nd – Between 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM

Presentation Abstract:

The rail industry has been on the search for better safety in parts cleaning. Using the ISC 18425, a Class I railroad company experienced lower temperature & pH requirements and a shorter cycle.

Using a combination of the ISC 18425 and DF 4030, the fluid temperature was 40-50°F below the previous cleaning process. This dramatic reduction in the input of heat needed corresponded to an equally dramatic decrease in energy consumption.

Furthermore, the sheer amount of chemicals required for the DMP cleaning process is 50% less than the previous cleaning process used by the Class I railroad company. Also, the wastewater treatment facility reported that no neutralizing acid was required to treat the wastewater. This reduction in chemicals needed for the wash cycle and elimination of neutralizing acid during the wastewater treatment process resulted in significant and ongoing cost savings as well as reductions in environmental impact and safety exposure to facility personnel.

This reduction in energy usage, chemicals needed, and the elimination of the need for a neutralizing agent resulted in a direct cost savings of approximately $100,000 per year.

With regards to cleaning performance, the ISC chemicals delivered impressive results. The cleaning quality was reported to be better with the ISC chemicals than with the previous chemical formulae. Each part type was observed to have a better overall appearance after cleaning, and the highly machined parts were even seen to have a more noticeable sheen.

Last but not least, the wash cycle time of the ISC cleaning process was analyzed. While some parts took the same amount of time in the cleaning cycle as the previous process, many part types achieved a faster wash cycle time. Our tests were conducted over a wide range of part sizes and soil loads. From small engine parts to complete locomotive block assemblies and from light oil and grease to baked-on, carbonized soil, ISC’s cleaning process delivered results better than the previous process in cleaning performance.

The partnership of ISC and the Class I railroad was an all-around success demonstrating the success DMP has brought to many industries, including the railroad industry. With the ISC 18425, the Class I railroad company is now realizing a reduction in energy usage, chemical consumption, and wash cycle time with increased cleaning performance and personnel safety. These results also reduced environmental impact.

Presentation: 4 Reasons Why Automation Reduces Wastewater
Dates & Time: Monday, November 11th | Sometime between 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM.

State-of-the-art automation can help take the worry out of your wastewater treatment. Sensors are not only getting cheaper, but they are also getting better. New technologies in treatment systems make it possible for you to save money, avoid downtime and repairs, and uphold quality standards, even in older systems. Automation helps you manage your wastewater more safely and in compliance with your local discharge limits. This presentation will identify four ways adding automation to existing wastewater treatment systems reduces operational costs.

What to Expect:

  • Understand the value of adding automation to existing equipment
  • Learn what to consider when deciding whether you should replace in lieu of upgrading
  • Discover the future of automation for wastewater treatment

Christopher Dooley, CEO, will be doing this presentation as well.

As you can see, we’ll be very busy. If you’re attending these conferences, please stop by our events and don’t be shy! We like meeting people and answering questions.
