Basic Dewatering Container Considerations

by | May 16, 2018 | Waste Management

One of the most effective and efficient ways for processing and industrial companies to get rid of wastewater with solid particles, grease or contaminants is to use an on-site dewatering system.

This allows a company to have the dewatering container and system at their disposal. Not only will this reduce the cost of waste disposal as it is only the solids which will be hauled off and not the heavy water, but it also provides the potential to sell the solids for composting.

Having a dewatering container on-site for any plant, facility or business should not be a challenge unless there is limited space or other issues. It is always important to check all local zoning restrictions and ensure all necessary permits are obtained before ordering the unit and having it in place on the property.

Overall Considerations

There are different sizes of units, which are roll-off for easy delivery and pick-up, and a business can choose a smaller or larger size based on their needs. Smaller businesses may want to consider a larger unit and process the wastewater of nearby businesses, which can help in offsetting the costs.

The system will consist of the dewatering container, hoses, a platform for safe and easy visual inspection of the system as well as the polymer mixing and dosing unit and the pump.


These systems, when designed and installed correctly, are a very low-maintenance addition to the business. There will be some basic maintenance of the polymer mixing and dosage units as well as the dewatering tank, and this usually includes general flushing of the system as needed.

Scraping of the unit can be completed as needed to move any material in the tank. This is done from the outside of the tank and only as needed.
