Clearmake Waste Water Treatment and Recycling Solutions has added a cost effective and highly efficient water treatment technology to its range of water treatment units.
This patented water treatment technology, called Clearmake Electropure, is chemical free and ideal for most traditionally difficult to treat waste waters. The following is an outline of some of the water treatment projects Clearmake Electropure has already been applied to.
Amcor was struggling with the treatment and disposal of wash down water from cardboard manufacturing equipment at its Enmore plant in Sydney. Water from this equipment contained large quantities of ink, glue and grease, which meant it had to be tankered offsite as liquid waste. As a solution, a Clearmake Electropure waste water treatment system was installed, which treats volumes of up to 300 litres per day for sewer discharge. This unit requires approximately 15 minutes of maintenance per week and by reducing waste water disposal costs by more than 90%, it had paid for itself in six months.
Sydney's Randwick Council used wash down water for cleaning their garbage trucks, street sweepers, beach cleaners and other Council vehicles. However, due to the high pathogen cell counts (faecal coliforms of 210,000 cells/100ml) in the waste water, it could not safely be discharged to the sewer system. Here, a Clearmake Electropure waste water treatment system manages up to 4kL a day, costs a little over $1 per kL to operate, and by enabling recycling has cut its use of potable water by 80%. An additional benefit of this water treatment system is Council does not have the additional employment hassle and expense of a traditional waste water treatment plant, reducing maintenance hours from 38 hours to about 1 hour a week.
The Yarraby Caravan Park in Echuca, Victoria installed four Clearmake Electropure waste water treatment units in parallel to clean river water for drinking, cooking and bathing. The capacity can be adjusted to suit current guest numbers simply by turning the units on or off, and it costs less than 40c per kL to run.
