Industrial water treatment

Meet environmental obligations, improve operational efficiency and cut maintenance costs by managing, recycling and reusing process water and wastewater.

Water scarcity, increasingly stringent effluent discharge regulations and operational efficiency drivers represent real challenges for water-intensive industrial businesses, with process water use, treatment and discharge generating both cost and risk. Surface water, too, represents a risk, acting as a vector that carries potentially harmful materials into the environment.

Our industrial water management products help businesses to use water more efficiently, recover valuable processing by-products, meet regulations and protect the environment—saving money and reducing financial and legal risks.

Rotating belt screens

Rotating belt screens remove a wide range of materials from industrial process water, enabling businesses to recycle materials back into the process train and reuse process water.

Hydro MicroScreen™

  • A low-energy, small-footprint screen that delivers exceptional solids removal from industrial process wastewater across a range of applications. View product

Sand and Grit Separation Systems

Hydro International's industry leading grit separation systems can replace the need for massive sedimentation systems in a fraction of the footprint.


  • Stacked tray grit separation maximizes surface area in a tiny footprint to remove 95% of all grit 75 micron and larger. In many industrial applications, the system can replace the need for sedimentation entirely. View product

Stormwater treatment products


Stormwater filters use custom, site-specific media to capture the environmentally damaging pollutants carried in surface water runoff from industrial facilities, helping businesses to cut effluent surcharges and protecting against costly regulatory breaches.

Up-Flo® Filter

  • An advanced system that combines sedimentation and screening with filtration to capture oils, heavy metals, nutrients and solids from surface water runoff, achieving removal rates of up to 98%. View product


Hydrodynamic separators use vortex forces to separate industrial pollutants from surface water runoff, settling out total suspended solids (TSS), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and solid-bound heavy metals and nutrients, while oils and floatables are captured at the surface.

Downstream Defender®

  • An advanced hydrodynamic vortex separator that provides impressive and reliable removals of sediments, oil and floatables from stormwater runoff. View product

First Defense®

  • A versatile stormwater separator that works with single and multiple inlet pipes and inlet grates. View product
