WESP Treatment

Chemistry to effectively manage
Wet Electrostatic Precipitators

Caustic Soda isn’t Cutting It

Maintaining your WESP system is critical to everyday operations. There are safety and regulatory standards that need to be met.

Traditionally straight commodity caustic soda has been used for treatment, however treating a WESP with caustic soda contributes significant additional system operation and maintenance costs. You just can’t afford to waste time on ineffective cleaning chemistry.

We Keep Your WESP in Optimum Working Condition

Because no operations or systems are the same, we will work with you to develop a WESPGUARD treatment program. By studying your system, we review site-specific challenges including wood species, feed and recycle water quality, waste handling, disposal resources, foam control and overall system design. We find a formulation and site application technique that works for you. Our reps have worked throughout the industry, and are there to support you for servicing and emergency issue resolution. 

Wood Mills and Engineered Wood Products

Constantly Working to Improve WESP Chemistry

Not only does scale impact your WESP system; there are also strict safety and regulatory standards that need to be met.  

We are one of the only companies in North America to have developed a better WESP treatment alternative to caustic soda, as well as scale-reduction chemicals to support existing caustic soda treatments. These holistic systems reduce cycle times and chemical consumption volumes to keep your WESP working at maximum efficiency by:

  • Increasing efficiency of solids removal and centrifuge performance
  • Lowering pH operating parameters which greatly reduce foaming tendencies and defoamer consumption
  • Increase cleaning performance and preventing scaling with sequestrant, surfactant and hard water chelating
  • Improving solids removal with polymers and coagulants
