1. Can WETTTM systems treat leachate water (wastewater generated by landfill sites)?

Chemically, WETTTM systems can treat leachate water to remove heavy metals, oil and a good portion of COD and BOD.  Laboratory tests are required to determine the treatment performance with WETTTM systems.  The leachate flowrate must be able to be treated in a cost-effective fashion with WETTTM, and this also needs to be assessed.

2. What is the capacity of WETTTM systems?

WETTTM systems are modular.  The smallest module can treat up to 1.4 m3/day and the largest module can treat up to 7.2 m3/day.  For larger treatment capacities, several modules can be placed in parallel.

3. How much does a complete WETTTM unit cost?

The cost of a WETTTM unit depends on its treatment capacity and the type of water being treated.  For example, the cost of the base model of a WETTTM-O at 1.4-2.2 m3/day is similar to other products with this capacity for bilgewater treatment.

4. What is the annual maintenance cost of WETTTM?

WETTTM systems do not require significant maintenance. For example, the WETTTM-O system for ships requires a weekly cleaning of the oil content monitor (takes several minutes using soapy water) and an annual cleaning of the system. As well, electrodes need to be replaced (using a 15 minute procedure) after treating approximately 34 m3 of wastewater, although the frequency is somewhat dependent on the application.

5. Do you have a European distributor?

Terragon has sales agents around the world for the marine market.  Regarding distributors, Terragon has a distributor in the Caribbean, and is in discussions with various companies for distributor agreements in various regions of the world including France.  If you would like to enquire about becoming a Terragon distributor, please contact p.tsantrizos@terragon.net.

6. Do you have a detailed description of your WETTTM product?

We have technical brochures for the three WETTTM products: WETTTM-O, WETTTM-G and WETTTM-S and these are available on the website. Contact us to obtain brochures or for any other technical information.lick edit button to change this text.

7. What waste or residual materials can MAGSTM treat?

Paper, cardboard, plastic, wood, rubber, rags, clothing, leather, used oils, contaminated solvents, plastic contaminated with traces of explosives or oil, industrial sludges, food wastes, biomedical wastes, expired pharmaceutical or cosmetic products, etc.

8. What is the 22 kW of electricity used for in MAGSTM?

This is required to power a vacuum pump which keeps the system under vacuum and which also serves to circulate air and water in the system. However the MAGSTM system generates up to 130 kW in the form of hot water depending on the type of waste treated.
