RE: Latex Paint Brush Wash



In Washington State, evaporators cannot be used for wastes containing
organics. 

Wastewater from water-curtain paint booths is sometimes treated with water
additives that cause the paint to clump and settle.  Perhaps that would work
in your case.

Possibly a wastewater evaporatoe would work.

Use the IWRC vendor database to locate the companies that make them:
http://www.iwrc.org/newvendor/index.cfm
Select wastewater from the dropbox
then select wastewater evaporators from the dropbox

Good luck,
