How Does a Dewatering Container Work?

Aqua-Zyme is a trusted manufacturer of dewatering systems in Texas, and our dewatering container options include 15 and 30-cubic-yard units. Let’s look at how a typical Aqua-Zyme system works, and why a wastewater-removal system a might be a good fit for your business.

Separating Solids from Liquids

Liquid waste enters the mixing unit which mixes in the right amount of polymers. Waste treatment polymers work as flocculating agents. The polymers cause sediments to collect together to make the process of filtering easier.

After mixing in the polymers, the waste is then pumped into the dewatering container. Each unit has four 4-inch drain ports at the bottom. They come with cam lock fittings so you can connect a 3-inch diameter hose fitting. The units also have two 3-inch diameter inlet ports.

Once the liquid waste enters the water removal unit, it goes through an extensive filtration process. The liquid separates from the solid,s and drains into the bottom, where water leaves the drain ports. Once the water is separated from the solids, it can be drained into a municipal sewer system. However, it’s always best to check your local regulations about these matters before dumping anything. If sewer drainage is not possible, you’ll need to make arrangements for additional disposal.

Solids Disposal from the Dewatering Container

Solids are easily dumped from our dewatering containers because they are designed as roll-off units. This makes picking up and delivering your dewatering units quick and convenient. The solids are safe enough to pass a common paint filter test, so it should be no problem taking them to a local landfill, but always check out local ordinances first.
