Effluent from wash systems creates production downtime, incurs high labour costs to dump, clean and refill process tanks, demands high energy costs to reheat the solutions and incurs a high disposal cost, which in some cases requires storing the effluent in containers for collection by a contract disposal company.
The Aqua-Save system continuously recovers and re-uses the wash water in parts cleaning systems. The need for disposal is significantly reduced. Water quality is maintained throughout production ensuring that parts exit the system in a clean condition, without contamination with oily residues. The only effluent resulting from the system is a concentrated waste, consisting of the oils washed from dirty components, which represents typically less than 5% of the total water volume.
