“VACUDEST allowed us to reduce the amount of wastewater we produce so much so that the investment paid for itself in just one year. On top of that, we are able to save more than €100,000 each year thereafter,” says Bernd Löffler, General Manager at thermofin.
This success is something that other metalworking companies can also emulate. H2O GmbH will be on hand at Industrie Paris, the international trade show for production technologies being held from 4 to 8 April 2016, to provide answers on how this can be done.
Vacuum distillation systems help deliver these savings by eliminating wastewater and disposal costs. Depending on the level of contamination, 100% wastewater is evaporated to produce 98 per cent pure water, leaving only 2% residue. The quality of the clean water is so high that it can be reused in the process. By recycling the wastewater in this way, it is possible to reduce disposal costs by up to 98%!
What sets VACUDEST vacuum distillation systems apart is the patented technologies from the application centre for wastewater-free technology that guarantee consistent distillate quality. The distillate is virtually free from oils, making it optimally suited for reuse – even in demanding processes.
Any company generating more than 180 cubic metres of wastewater each year can save money. Oily cooling lubricant emulsions, die-casting release emulsions and rinse water used in cleaning parts and in surface treatment processes can be treated, to name just a few examples.
