What Do Waste Water Treatment Plants Do?

Wastewater treatment plants work to analyze water samples and remove contaminants from both industrial and residential wastewater. A variety of physical and biological processes are used to decontaminate the water and prepare it to be returned to the environment.

Wastewater contains residential sewage, industrial runoff, and urban stormwater, which must be filtered and put through a series of chemical and biological treatments in order to remove sludge, oil, grease, bacteria, and other organic and inorganic contaminants.

We manufacture a wide range of waste water treatment lab furniture options equipped with dozens of optional accessories and made using the best and most durable materials.

WWTP Laboratory Casework

When designing a water treatment laboratory, you are going to need plenty of storage for materials, chemicals, testing tools, and equipment. Metal lab casework can help you keep your workstations clean and clear of mess, and offer plenty of space for water treatment lab technicians to work and perform tests efficiently.

Casework can also help you prevent spills, mixing of reactive chemicals, and damage to delicate laboratory tools. If you are performing purification techniques like carbon adsorption and ion exchange processes, we can supply custom benches tailored to your water treatment laboratory equipment.

At OnePointe Solutions, we offer a large range of casework options that can be customized to fit the needs of your lab. Choose from wall-mounted casework, lab islands, corner cabinets, casework suspended under workbenches, wall shelving, mobile cabinets, and more.

Select your ideal materials like solid phenolic compact or stainless steel, and configure your casework to suit your workflow.

Water Treatment Lab Workbenches and Tables

Laboratory workbenches and tables used for wastewater treatment plant lab testing should be carefully selected to ensure safe working conditions for laboratory personnel. Sludge, biological materials, and harsh chemicals present in wastewater can be corrosive or may build up in cracks, crevices, and dimples in the surface of countertop materials.

As such, WWTP lab tables and workbenches should be smooth and non-porous to avoid saturation or bacterial accumulation.

Water-Resistant Countertop Materials

Wastewater treatment plant labs naturally deal with a lot of water during the process of wastewater testing, necessitating that their furniture is water-resistant and hardy against regular moisture exposure and bacterial buildup. Choosing the right materials for your WWTP lab furniture is a vital step in designing an efficient, high-functioning lab.

Materials appropriate for use in wastewater treatment plant labs include:

All three of these materials provide advanced water resistance, are easy to clean, and provide smooth non-porous surfaces where bacteria won’t collect or build. If you prefer a seamless design to further prevent bacteria from building in crevices, choose epoxy or phenolic resin, which can be poured to fit any tabletop configuration without any seams.

Optional Accessories

Along with plenty of countertop material options, we also offer a range of optional accessories you can add to your workbenches and tables. Include extra storage, electrical power, ergonomic features, and much more to help facilitate productivity, comfort, and safety in the work environment.

Some of the accessories you can add on to your custom lab table or workbench include:

  • Computer mounts
  • Drawers
  • Mounted casework
  • Plumbing raceways
  • Pegboards
  • Footrests
  • Casters
  • Edge rails
  • Epoxy Resin Pegboards and Drying Racks

To support the easy cleaning, drying, and storing of lab glassware, we offer custom-built epoxy resin pegboards and drying racks. Built to your desired thickness and with your desired surface area, these super-durable drying racks are ideal for use in wastewater treatment plants or wet labs of any kind.

Choose from black or white, and include a stainless steel drip tray to catch water as glassware dries.
