When money is tight, companies get creative in solving problems. I had a customer from a food processing plant asking me for a solution to get rid of their waste water stream. Due to new sewage disposal regulations, they are required to monitor and pre-treat wastewater before sending it down the drain.
Being a start-up company in a down economy, they did not have the financial resources for any capital equipment. On the other hand, without a way to dispose of their waste water, they were out of business.
Using our model #6196 Reversible Drum Vac, they pumped their waste tanks into 55 gallon drums. These drums then were trucked to a nearby company that recently installed the equipment to process their waste stream.
This worked out well for both companies. It provided revenues for the receiving company to defray the cost of their new equipment and a window of time for our customer to position themselves financially for the necessary future capital investment.
