Metal Pretreatment Recycling Systems

Riveer Treatment Systems

The heart of every Riveer metal pretreatment systems is the ability to capture, recycle and re-use the fluid used in wash applications.

Regardless of the task, Riveer has a complete lineup of world-class water treatment systems that capture, control, contain and re-use solution to operate in a zero-discharge process.

Applications cover degreasing, pretreating for coating applications, cleaning vehicles and material handling equipment, maintaining and washing dies. Built-in filtration processes separate oil via coalescing, inject ozone for inhibiting bacterial growth, and completely filter for particulate removal.

Additional Riveer filtration modules remove dissolved solids, heavy metals and salts.

Riveer offers a host of options to exactly meet your cleaning requirements. From hot water high-pressure manual washers to automatic high-flow articulated and spinning washers, Riveer can provide a system that will meet your cleaning, quality and repeatability requirements.

RTS-500 Light Solids/Oils

The RTS 500 is a compact, efficient wash water filtration system designed to handle waste streams containing light solids and oils, such as industrial parts degreasing and maintenance equipment washing. The RTS 500 filters and treats water for reuse or proper discharge in compliance with EPA and municipal regulations. The all-stainless steel filtration system features inclined plate separators to settle solids in a large initial settling chamber. Oil is coalesced by passing through a cube of porous polypropylene and then removed from the water by a large disc skimmer. High-pressure, high-flow multimedia filtration removes suspended solids, heavy metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This filter is automatically back-washed when needed. A final absolute polishing filter cleans the water to 5 microns before sending it to a holding tank. Water in the system is continuously circulated and injected with ozone or bacteria to prevent the onset of unwanted odors.

RTS-1000

The RTS 1000 wash water reclamation and recycling system was designed to deal with light to moderate dirt loads. Built entirely in stainless steel, it is ideal for phosphate pretreatment applications, die washing, and dirty equipment. A prefilter and media filter can be added to the RTS 1000 to increase its dirt handling.

The all stainless steel RTS 1000 comes with a regenerative blower to suck up wash water from Riveer above ground racks, shallow in ground sumps, or from a mat. This is the only system of its kind, and more than 600 of these units are in operation around the world. Standard filtration with this system includes an inlet screen basket to capture gross contaminants prior to the filtration chamber, oil coalescing and oil skimmer, ozone injection, 24/7 recirculation, back washable media filtration and absolute filtration.

RTS-3000

The RTS 3000 was designed to handle moderate to heavy mud loads. This all stainless steel filtration system features inclined plate separators to settle mud in a large initial settling chamber. The chamber is sloped to a valve that automatically purges settled solids every night. Oil coalescing and removal in conjunction with ozone or bacteria injection completes the initial stage. Wash water is recovered with a run dry diaphragm pump or sump pump where appropriate (this sump pump is capable of pumping a golf ball). High-pressure industrial media filtration removes suspended solids, heavy metals, and VOC’s. This filter is automatically back washed when needed. A final absolute polishing filter cleans the water to 5 microns before sending it to a holding tank. Like all Riveer systems, all water in the system is continuously circulated and injected with ozone or bacteria to prevent the onset of unwanted odors.

RTS-5000

The RTS 5000 is designed for tough to handle, heavy mud applications. After years of problem solving for various heavy-duty applications, the engineering team at Riveer has come up with the best filtration system yet for heavy dirt operations. A stainless steel filtration chamber incorporates inclined plate separators that drop solids but instead of going to a valve for purging, the RTS 5000 has a built-in conveyor to drag the mud to an external hopper for easy disposal with a forklift. No other company has anything like this. After the 850 gallon settling chamber, the wash water passes through oil coalescing media and is then pumped through a high-pressure auto back washing media filter and then through an absolute 5 micron polishing filter. The RTS 5000 is used in applications where water cannons are knocking hopper loads of mud off of construction equipment. The RTS 5000 is frequently used with Riveer’s above ground wash racks with optional built-in conveyors or with Riveer designed concrete pads.
