Achieve true ZLD with two forced circulation evaporative crystallizer options: SaltMaker MVR and SaltMaker MSF.
Targeted water solutions
Heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, etc. can be critical components of many wastewaters and often require treatment. Conventional precipitation & coagulation (P&C) processes are well-practiced to treat heavy metals. Saltworks has modernized these processes to reduce footprint, maintenance, and operating costs.
Precipitation & CoagulationIn wastewaters burdened with heavy metals, physical-chemical precipitation converts soluble heavy metals to insoluble salts. The resulting precipitate must be removed by some combination of physical steps such as coagulation, clarification, and/or filtration. There are considerable opportunities in optimizing conventional precipitation & coagulation (P&C) processes.
Meet Treatment Goals
At times, only precipitation & coagulation (P&C) is required to meet a treatment goal, avoiding the need for more expensive desalination technology and/or a brine to manage. Beneficially, a P&C process produces only two outputs: treated water with metals removed, and a solid filter cake containing the removed metals.
There are considerable opportunities in optimizing conventional precipitation & coagulation (P&C) processes to:
- lower installed costs
- save chemicals
- save space
- reduce wastes generated
- ensure compliance, and
- reduce operator burden.
Our BrineRefine system performs chemical treatment in a compact, pre-packaged, and intelligently automated manner. BrineRefine is
- Designed for modularity in factory-built ISO container skids, with built-in redundancy and expansion capability. This lowers installation costs.
- Automated with precision dosing to ensure chemicals are not wasted and excess sludge is not generated.
- A smart system for managing solids that reduces operator burden, as in our leading crystallizer solutions.
- Compact: BrineRefine eliminates the need for large reaction vessels and clarifiers.

XtremeUF ceramic ultrafiltration removes oils, grease, precipitated by-products, particulate, microbes, and suspended solids.
Our UHP RO minimizes brine from tough industrial wastewaters and delivers the highest freshwater recovery in the industry.
Saltworks provides comprehensive solutions for mining waters. We treat water, remove problem contaminants, achieve minimal liquid discharge (MLD) or zero liquid discharge (ZLD), and recover valuable metals as your project needs.
As regulations on FGD wastewater tighten, additional treatment is required. Often, this is chemically intense, and high cost. The best means to lower treatment costs is to reduce the volume of wastewater generated, usually by increasing internal recycle.
Coal ash pond water may require treatment because leached pollutants from ash pond water pose human health and ecological risks. Consider membrane concentrators, minimal liquid discharge (MLD), and zero liquid discharge (ZLD) technologies to reduce brine volumes from treating leachable pollutants.
New modular, intelligent, and automated chemical precipitation with a ceramic membrane filtration system eliminates the challenges of chemical overdosing and large footprint requirements.
