Wastewater Evaporation Systems
Dramatically Reduces Disposal Volume & Cost
Eliminates Sewer Discharge Accountability
Easy to Install, Operate, and Maintain
Low Operating costs
Can be Used as a Stand-Alone Solution or as a Complement to Filtration Technologies
Keeps Wastewater Disposal Under Your Control
Evaporation can give you an up to 95% reduction by dewatering the waste stream.
What Does a WasteWater Evaporator Do?
Like a pan of water on the stove, wastewater subjected to heat is evaporated leaving the pollutants to be skimmed off or disposed of as sludge. In short, wastewater evaporators safely and naturally eliminates the water portion of a waste stream leaving behind only the gunk—usually about 5-10% of the total volume—to dispose of.
The technology use in wastewater evaporators is typically either through immersion heating (pan on a stove) or submerged combustion (sending the heat into a tube immersed in water). Water Maze has systems with both technologies.
Case Study & Calculator
A Manufacturing Company that had a waste stream with penetrants and dye:
They were producing 50 gallons a day and paying to have that waste stream hauled off at $1.25 a gallon.
In an average month they were producing 1,100 gallons of wastewater and were paying on average of $1,375.00 per month in hauling costs.
By installing a Water Maze HBG-30 Waste Water Evaporator they reduced the waste stream by 95% saving $1,375.00 a month.
The evaporator uses natural gas and costs about .05 a gallon to operate with gas and electricity so the cost to add back in to operating costs is $55.00.
So the net savings was $1,320.00.
The HBG costs a total of $25,000.00 installed giving it a 19 month ROI. In other words, it paid for itself in just over a year and a half’s time.
* You do have hauling costs of the concentrated 5% sludge that needs to be factored in the above.

Water Blaze (WB) High-Efficiency Wastewater Evaporator
The WB (or Water Blaze) series, introduced in 1994, is the first evaporator to use high-efficiency submerged combustion technology. It works by forcing heat through a submerged tube and releasing it directly into the water for 100% heat exchanger efficiency and dramatic operational and energy cost savings. Two models process waste streams at 60 or 120 gallons per hour.
Featuring top-of-the-line immersion tube jet burner components, with a solid-state flame control monitor, the WB evaporators are capable of creating temperatures of up to 2000°F, releasing hot flue gases directly into the water.
Other features include:
Heat-resistant, heavy-duty stainless steel sparger tube with unique air distribution system;
RF capacitance liquid level assembly for greater safety and enhanced operation;
Nema 4 electrical box with operational controls as well as troubleshooting indicator lights;
Auto purge, auto start/stop and auto fill come standard;
Soft-start ignition system and fast-closing UL, CSA and FM approved gas valve for smooth operation;
Stainless steel steam de-mister box;
Many safety features, including a UV scanner which shuts down the unit when a flame does not appear;
Foam suppression system and easy-to-access sludge disposal valve.

HBG Conventional Wastewater Evaporator
Water Maze offers several models of evaporators that use the conventional hot-plate technology with a unique high-efficiency combustion chamber to dispense of up to 90% to 95% of a waste stream so only 5% to 10% has to be hauled off.
There are three models of the HBG / HBE evaporators, They are capable of evaporating wastewater at 8, 15 and 30 gallons per hour. The natural gas-heated HBG systems have two models. The all-electric HBE, featuring eight 2600-watt coil-type heater, has one model with either 230V 3ph or 460V 3ph configurations.
The combustion box in the HBG models is made of advanced heat reflective material and features a unique energy-efficient design for reflecting the heat directly onto the floor of the evaporation tank for energy cost savings. The unit is made of heavy-duty steel, insulated and double lined for energy efficiency and safety. Other features include:
Heavy-duty tank made of carbon steel with optional alloy upgrades to 316L or AL-6XN stainless steel;
Non-fouling, stainless steel, liquid level assembly prevents damage to the system with a redundant third float for protection against overflowing;
Nema 4 electrical box with operational controls as well as trouble-shooting indicator lights;
High-efficiency burner shoots a flame, fueled by natural gas or propane, into the combustion chamber for unusually high-energy efficiency;
Three-inch, recessed drain port for easy sludge removal.
