Tightening environmental standards and the rising cost of tankering wastewater mean more and more industrial process companies are taking control of their own treatment systems. We work closely with our clients to identify the optimal whole lifecycle, future proofed solution for each site, whether new build or asset replacement . We also provide portable units to manage short-term compliance issues, pilot trials and sedimentation tests.

Pilot trials and sedimentation tests

WPL can provide a pilot unit to conduct onsite tests that will identify the precise equipment required for your operation.

We offer simple sedimentation tests onsite or at our in-house laboratory. This makes it possible to verify settling capability of the system and the chemical dosing rates or polyelectrolytes required to optimise effluent quality and settling rate. WPL’s own pilot plants can be hired with trained operators, or training can be given and operated by site. As the plant doubles as emergency hire, it is designed for ease of installation and operation.
