The process water used as part of their manufacturing process was becoming heavily loaded with small particles of product. In order to deal with this issue, they frequently drained, flushed and refilled the system, which was causing ever increasing water costs for both refilling and the discharge water expense.
With the use of the correct water filtration system, the client was able to greatly extend the use of water leading to a huge saving in water costs and effluent discharge costs. Due to the filtration system used, they are now able to retain the solids removed from the process water and are looking into a method of reusing the solids.
Advantages of the Rotary Drum Filter System for this application:
- Fully automatic self-cleaning system
- Capacity to handle high solids loads
- Robust low maintenance system
- Stainless steel build material for long life
- High quality filtration performance
