What We Do
There are substantial differences between what our system does and what all others do.
In simple words, All other systems use either chemicals or biological systems to reduce the BOD, COD Solids etc. They do not destroy them, we do.
They reduce the BOD COD etc., but that is only to the level that is carried in the solids and does not affect the chemicals, coliform, parasites, bacteria etc., that are either suspended or dissolved in the feed water.
In our process solids removal is only a portion of what is done. Our focus is to purify the water in every sense. Meaning we destroy the chemicals, parasites, coliform, bacteria, viruses and extract the heavy metals all by more than 99%. Plus we reduce the BOD and COD to usually less than 3% of the original amount. This can be down to nearly 0% if wanted but generally that has no added benefit. Also increases the cost when all of the above are already destroyed.
We use up to 9 different technologies to achieve our results. The water could be fed to any domestic water treatment plant and be used as the feedstock. Every other system known will have pollutants in their discharge stream. They leave in the metals, bacteria, parasites, coliform etc., which is what caused the water pollution in the first place. Our system is radically different than the rest and we provide a discharge stream that will contribute to the purification and pollution reduction to all water sources.
VNCAN designs and manufactures wastewater treatment solutions for clients with wastewater that contains high or low levels of:
- BOD - COD
- HEAVY METALS
- HYDRO CARBONS
- FATS - OILS - GREASE (FOG)
- OIL & GAS
- FOOD PROCESSING
- MEAT PACKING
One of the steps in our system that makes us different and better than the other technologies available is the unique electromechanical reactor module, which is a treatment technology that combines ozone with the influent to create a super critical fluid and is an advance oxidation process within the sealed reactor. Creating very impressive new water cleaning and disinfecting capabilities.
Especially beneficial, our process requires no secondary or dangerous chemical handling, nor purchases for disinfection and oxidation purposes is required.
All oxidizing is accomplished insitu, as the continuous flow electromechanical treatment process develops.
Our electromechanical reactor is unique in that it is a "close gap" reactor meaning that we can clean water very quickly. No holding ponds are necessary, the wastewater is cleaned in real time on a flow-through basis. Utilizing amperages that are lower than a car battery.
Firstly, on the surface of the anode, a metal ion is driven into the water. Secondly, on the surface of the cathode, water is hydrolyzed into hydrogen gas and hydroxyl groups. And thirdly, electrons flow freely from the cathode to the anode which destabilizes surface charges on suspended solids and emulsified oils.
This adds substantial operator safety compared to other conventional electrocagulation processes which operate at much higher and potentially harmful level voltages.
Further, our ECR unit has a PLC controlled gap mechanism that maintains this perfect "close-gap" benefit through the complete useable life of the dissolving sacrificial anode; which is addapted accordingly to the water being processed.
Our system will remove total suspended solids, heavy metals, emulsified oils, bacteria, and other contaminants from water which at this stage have been coagulated by presitting processes. We may use DAF units or other systems that are suitable for the water being processed.
As the reaction begins, metal ions complex with hydroxyl groups and form large flocs that include metals and other contaminants. Suspended solids and emulsified oils are readily entrained within the floc because of the destabilized surface charges. Finally, the hydrogen gas bubbles help to separate and lift the flocs. Depending on the application, the final solids separation step can be done using settling tanks, media filtration, ultrafiltration, and other methods.
All suspended and disolved components in the influent, including but not limited to:
- Total Suspended Solids
- Heavy Metals
- Oil & Grease
- Emulsified Oils
- Biological Oxygen Demand
- Chemical Oxygen Demand
- Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)
- Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)
