Reduce Costs of Chemicals for Wastewater Heavy Metal Treatment

“We were spending right at $86,000 per month prior to the installation of the Maelstrom Oxidizer®. For the 6 months following the install, we averaged $34,000 — a 60% savings! The Maelstrom performed as advertised.”

Lower Your Costs for Acid Mine Water Treatment

After installing a carefully sized Maelstrom Oxidizer®, chemical costs are typically cut between 40 and 80 percent. We have seen budgets scaled back significantly and, in a few cases, a complete cessation of chemical use!

Save Money on Chemical Costs for AMD Wastewater Treatment

Sludge Reduction

Land area can be reduced up to 90% on passive sites and by up to 50% on active sites, which accommodates smaller ponds and lowers the cost of sludge removal.

Maelstrom Oxidizer® Advantages

Our system increases pH and the oxidation rate of AMD water in seconds.  Therefore, costly chemicals needed to raise pH can be greatly reduced. Sludge generation will drop accordingly and thereby reduce your costs even further.  Additionally, land area can be reduced up to 90% on passive sites and by up to 50% on active sites, which accommodates smaller ponds and lowers the cost of sludge removal.  Annual maintenance costs are low compared to most other systems.
