ERI supplies systems that control the delivery of carbon dioxide to wastewater pH control systems
ERI supplies systems that control the delivery of carbon dioxide to wastewater pH control systems. Carbon dioxide neutralizes alkaline wastewater without dangerous mineral acids. ERI can supply complete wastewater neutralization systems that feature the use of carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide delivery equipment can also be supplied alone, for retrofitting an existing system. In either case, ERI guarantees the system to be effective in controlling alkaline (high pH) wastewater. Compared to mineral acids, carbon dioxide offers:
- Better control – carbon dioxide cannot cause a low pH, even if too much is added.
- Safety – there is no need for face shields, eye wash stations, or safety showers.
- An environmentally friendly alternative – carbon dioxide is nature's own buffer.
- No extra EPA monitoring requirements – the storage of mineral acids can trigger monitoring and reporting requirements.
We at ERI can help you evaluate the benefits of carbon dioxide for neutralizing your specific waste stream.
