Wastewater Evaporation

Like a pan of water on the stove, wastewater subjected to heat is evaporated leaving the pollutants to be skimmed off or disposed of as sludge. It short, wastewater evaporation safely and naturally eliminates the water portion of a waste stream leaving behind only the gunk—usually about 5%-10% of the total volume—to dispose of.

Evaporation technology is typically either through immersion heating (pan on a stove) or submerged combustion (sending the heat into a tube immersed in water). Water Maze has systems with both technologies.

  • Pro: It effectively minimizes the wastewater so there’s only a fraction left to dispose of.
  • Con: It still requires disposal of hazardous wastes plus heating fuel costs can be expensive.
