AQUA-SAVE ADDS SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS TO TURNED PARTS PRODUCTION AT H S ROWE & PARTNERS


An Aqua-Save Junior – the smallest waste water recycling unit is now a key processing focal point at H S Rowe and Partners.

The company, which has developed a leading reputation both in the UK and overseas in the production of sub-contracted turned parts, is taking full advantage of the Aqua-Save concept in order to maximise waste water reuse whilst minimising off site disposal costs.

"We have positioned the Aqua-Save Junior alongside one of our main aqueous-based washing stations allowing it to link directly to that process," comments Mark Statham, General Manager at the Ilkeston-based company. "We also bring in a regular series of IBC's from other processing locations around the site and, with the simple switch of a lever, link these periodically to the Aqua- Save facility. The results in both processing and environmental terms are significant to the extent that complete pay back on the installation will be realised, we believe, within little more than 18 months." "We undertake an extensive range of machining operations on site using steels and brass working from bar, rod and forgings," continues Mark Statham, "using multi-spindle CNC lathes and machining centres to undertake complete product machining in a single operation. Some 10 million components per year inevitably produce machining swarf and coolant oil which our wash processes then remove. It is the resultant solution, together with liquids collected from elsewhere on site that have become the focus of the Aqua-Save operation."

"The installation at H S Rowe is an excellent example of both the capability of the Aqua-Save Junior and its simple location within a processing environment," comments Divisional Manager at Aqua-Save Technologies, Paul Jarratt.
