Recycling the water for production process
publié le mardi 30 juin 2020
Since Krones over the course of time has already optimised its individual machines for enhanced efficacy, the complete-system vendor has now expanded the horizons of its corporate capabilities to factory level: a treatment concept has been developed for converting wastewater from the production operation into new process water.
This covers all the process steps involved that give rise to wastewater in production. In the concept, all the wastewater from the production is passed through the existing network of gullies into a central storage basin. There, any solids it contains are sieved out, whereupon the wastewater is neutralised in a collecting tank. Once all the residues have been removed from the wastewater, it need to be treated to make it suitable again for use as process water. This closed-circuit concept enables the water consumption in the production operation to be substantially reduced: up to 80% less water is now required.
