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 waste 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 (coalescing media) and then removed from the water by a large disc skimmer. A industrial stainless impeller pump transfers the waste water through high-flow industrial multimedia filter (if equipped) to remove 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.‚Äč
