Textile Wastewater Treatment

Sustainability is an important element of success in the textile industry. Water used at a textile factory or facility can contain solvents, metals and compounds that lower water quality and pose a risk to the environment.

SSI Aeration helps increase the sustainability of industrial wastewater by using biological methods to eliminate pollutants. With a full selection of aeration systems, diffusers and membranes available for ETP solutions, SSI can help refine and enhance the textile wastewater treatment process.

Applications

The textile industry is a broad market that covers a wide range of products and processes. A business’s textile wastewater composition may include anything from bleach and dyes to grease and chemical waste. With a wastewater treatment plan, businesses can save money and increase their self-sufficiency by recycling wastewater and using it for other applications.

Textile Processes

Workers in the textile industry may take on all types of work. Some of the processes that are common in textile factories include:

Materials

The types of materials used in textiles can produce contaminated wastewater. Textile workers use a wide range of materials, such as:

SSI clients in the textile industry have access to reliable MBBR systems that treat water while protecting against harmful substances. This can help simplify maintenance, reduce costs and benefit the environment.

Wastewater Treatment Process

SSI Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) wastewater treatment systems support the high demands of the textile industry. MBBR is a biological method of wastewater treatment that includes both aeration processes and biofilm technology.

First, the water is placed in an aeration tank, which contains small plastic chips called media. These media grow microorganisms that remove harmful waste materials from the water. An aeration grid helps the media move around the tank so that it can consume the contaminants more efficiently.

Other processes that can remove waste in smaller textile factories include coarse bubble and rubber diffuser aeration. Diffusers introduce oxygen into the water, eliminating bio-solids and other harmful substances. SSI also offers membranes for disc diffusers and tube diffusers.
