Industrial Water Treatment

From upgrades to existing facilities, to new systems, EA has consulted, designed systems, and/or constructed projects for aerospace, mining, and oil and gas.  In addition to upstream water systems, EA has experience in the treatment of contaminated water such as potable water, wastewater, groundwater, mining, oil and gas, refining, food processing, garment washing, train washing, rendering, and kill plants. Our EA professionals have expertise in the removal of hydrocarbons, fats, oils, grease, solids, metals, and has hundreds of systems that were designed, managed, and started-up by our staff.

Water treatment, optimization, and upgrades

EA provides all aspects of industrial water treatment, optimization and upgrades including process design, project management, start-up, and training. With significant hands-on experience in the operation of many water treatment systems, EA’s engineers and staff can help your organization to determine the lowest capital and operational cost alternatives for your site.

Electrical system design and management

EA offers expertise in project management and design of commercial and industrial electrical systems, including preparation of drawings and specifications. Our expertise includes MCC design, equipment layouts, loading calculations, grounding systems, resource utilization, load flow analysis, fault current studies, protective device coordination studies, equipment selection, and arc flash evaluation and mitigation.

Instrumentation and controls design

Instrumentation and controls are the foundation of a well-designed facility and can improve reliability, lower operating costs, and avoid unwanted downtime.  EA has designed and installed hundreds of systems to date from simple level and flow controls to site wide automation.  EA’s engineers are skilled in process design, loop drawings, control logic, motor control, plant instrument layout, distributed control system (DCS), programmable logic controller (PLC), specifications, data sheets for instrumentation, and sequential flow charts.

Pipeline design and upgrades

In addition to our immense process piping experience, EA has also designed, specified, and project managed hundreds of miles of buried and surface pipelines for our industrial customers. Through hydraulic modeling, blending, pumping, and gravity flow, EA has helped its customers meet their regulatory and process requirements across their operational areas.

Tank and pond storage

Storage by either pond or tank is a critical process step in the treatment, disposal and/or recycling of mine waste water. With experience in the design, secondary containment, selection of materials, leak detection, etc., EA has helped its customers determine the best storage option for their specific needs and location. EA’s civil engineers have substantial experience in the design of grading, ring walls, prefabricated and site welded tanks, and outlet structures.

Bench and pilot testing

EA has provided both bench and pilot testing for many industrial customers and has the expertise to help you find the lowest capital and operational expense options to meet your discharge or reuse needs. With expertise in filtration, lime and soda ash softening, clarification, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, solids dewatering, etc., EA can help your site find the best options in the shortest amount of time.
