Wastewater Recycle System Recovers 84 Million Gallons of Water Annually for Luxury Automobile Manufacturer
New Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP)
WaterProfessionals® has recently completed construction of a continuous flow wastewater recycle plant at a prestigious German automobile manufacturing facility. Already in use, the new wastewater recycle plant is built to replace the German company’s current “batch” wastewater treatment plant which treats the company’s painting process waste. The former batch design required constant employee oversight and supervision.
WaterProfessionals® provided the new continuous-flow plant to treat 300 gallons per minute (gpm) twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week requiring substantially fewer dedicated man hours. WaterProfessionals®’ state-of-the-art system (which includes more than $1.6 million in electronic controls instrumentation) features a cutting-edge high purity water system in the physical-chemical process.
This new high purity water system produces 225 gallons per minute (gpm) of low silica and low conductivity water to the integrated paint process (IPP). Interestingly, the waste plant must have storage and treatment capability to rapidly treat 200,000 gallons of highly acidic “boil out” waste generated twice annually during plant shutdowns and clean up.
Recycle/Reuse system – WWTP
As part of this wastewater treatment system mentioned above, WaterProfessionals® proposed and constructed a wastewater recycle / reclaim system that will recover as many as 84-million gallons of water each year. The manufacturer has previously purchased this water, used it in their processes and discharged it to municipal sewer systems.
WaterProfessionals® provides turnkey wastewater treatment plants, which includes the Manufacture, Installation and Start-Up of these systems. Our systems are built to meet stringent specifications in all regards. In the case study above the waste reclaim / recycling system has a payback to the customer of less than one calendar year.
