Monroe Environmental

Monroe Environmental designs and manufactures water and wastewater clarification equipment as well as odor control and gas scrubbing systems for municipal and industrial use. Monroe shop assembles, pre-fits, and tests equipment before it is shipped to the job site. This unique business process, “The Monroe Method”, maximizes uptime by eliminating field misfits that can delay the project and drive up cost. Equipment installs quickly the first time so your plant can be up and running at full capacity in the shortest amount of time possible.

Monroe’s equipment designs are tailored to meet the needs of your specific application. Materials of construction can include mild/coated steel, stainless steel, PVC, polypropylene, polyethylene, FRP, and many others. They can inspect, analyze, and make recommendations for existing systems as well as completely design new units for your next project. Monroe Environmental is registered ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 company.

Water and Wastewater Clarification

Circular Clarifiers and Thickeners – Conventional gravity settling circular clarifiers for use in primary, secondary, solids-contact (flocculating), and sludge thickening applications

  • New, rebuild, and retrofit services
  • Sludge Collection Designs – Scraper Rake, Spiral Scraper, Suction Header, & Riser-Pipe
  • Sizes from 10’ – 250’ in diameter

Lamella Plate Vertical Clarifiers – This unit is typically used to remove solids from industrial waste and process waters. For municipal treatment plants, they are often used to clarify and remove solids from sand filter backwash water and other filtration processes.
Optional equipment includes skimmer, drag conveyors, chemical treatment, flocculator, thickener, and control panel.

Horizontal Plate Clarifiers – The Monroe Horizontal Plate Clarifier is one of the most versatile clarifiers available on the market. Because the unique Monroe parallel separator plate design effectively separates both settleable solids and floating materials, the Horizontal Clarifier can be used in place of a circular clarifier for nearly any application. This allows for significant cost savings and reduced space requirements versus traditional clarifiers.

Sludge Collection System – Efficient collection of flocculated solids and settled sludge with many designs available.

Plate Settlers – Monroe Environmental Parallel Plate Settlers can greatly increase the effective surface area of the existing clarifiers and sedimentation basins at water treatment facilities. New tanks can be greatly reduced in size when designed to include plate settlers as well. This is because suspended solids removal in gravity separators and clarifiers depends primarily on the surface area for settling and the multiple parallel plates provide a large surface area in a small space.

Air/Gas Cleaning & Odor Control

  • Air Stripping Towers – VOC and odor removal from a variety of water sources using clean air
  • Carbon Adsorbers – Dry scrubbing via activated carbon and other dry media for removal of VOCs, odorous compounds, oil vapors, and gas phase hydrocarbons
  • Packed Bed Scrubbers – Chemical scrubbers for removal of VOCs, odors, and acid gases such as H2S, HCL, NH3, and many other soluble pollutants
