Industrial Effluent: The Problem
Discharge of VOCs into wastewater is an endemic problem in engineering, chemical processing, food and beverage production and other industrial processes. Spills can lead to illegal discharges, pollution, fines and PR disasters. For this reason, some industrial facilities have purification plants to remove the bulk of these contaminants from the water before it is discharged, but even these suffer from failures and can be over run.
The cost of not monitoring your effluent
When spills happen large fines can be issued by the Environmental Agency and local, national and social media can turn an accident into a PR disaster with long-term implications. Additionally it is likely that regulatory bodies will ask for expensive on-line TOC analysers to be installed, which require a lot of reagents and maintenance at a very high additional cost.
By installing a VOC Drain and Effluent Monitor at the effluent, you can be notified as soon as the values start to increase and take appropriate action, avoiding all the problems associated with unexpected pollution events. The VOC Drain and Effluent Monitor is used to check the industrial effluent from industrial facilities and business premises to ensure that it is complying with environmental regulations. Its contactless measurement technique means that:
- It does not need reagents
- Requires little or no maintenance between services
- It’s robust and reliable
- It is cost effective
