Industrial Wastewater Treatment
Stay Compliant and Reduce Cost.

The ONLY supplier in the business with 170 years of metal finishing expertise.

To stay within your discharge limits, you have to know what’s in your wastewater and how it got there.  Hubbard-Hall technicians can tell you because we sell chemistry into upstream processes – and have for over 170 years – so we understand how to optimize the downstream effluent.

Do you need to change your waste treatment?
Maybe not.  We can help you identify process changes that can be made upstream, so you minimize the downstream issues. We’ve done it before.  And we help you use LESS chemistry.

  • Metal removal – copper, cadmium, chrome, lead, zinc, nickel and more
  • Oil removal – lubricants, rust preventatives, cleaning solutions and quench oils
  • BOD/COD reduction – meeting biological and chemical oxygen demand levels
  • Nutrient removal – phosphorous/phosphate reduction

Exceeding Guidelines and Reducing Costs in Wastewater Treatment


An aluminum packaging manufacturer was exceeding wastewater limits for fluoride.

Future-proofing Your wastewater System


Don’t worry later down the line if your wastewater system can safely handle that increase in volume.

5 Steps To Compliance

5 Steps To Compliance

Step 1: On-Site Process review
Our tech staff starts upstream to understand your manufacturing processes, chemical usage, and sludge generation.

Step 2: Equipment check
Is your equipment matched to your wastewater needs? Not always. It’s a common issue that causes endless challenges.

Step 3: Jar testing
We sample, benchmark, sample again and conduct thorough treatability studies to identify the optional chemistry dosage.

Step 4: Best process recommendation
You’ll get a customized report, including process recommendations, anticipated costs, and chemical and sludge reduction efficiencies.

Step 5: Implementation and best in class tech support
We will be at your side during implementation and provide staff training, comprehensive documentation and performance tracking.

"We had zero experience using wastewater treatment chemistry. Hubbard-Hall taught us how to use their chemicals, and how to troubleshoot when problems came up. They always picked up my calls and even made onsite visits. Their dedication and quick response has helped us keep our system running almost trouble free."
