From waste water to feed water
All nurseries have to contend with waste water, which is often caused by traditional filters, such as sand filters or automatic filters. They produce large amounts of rinse water. A vibrating sieve separates this wastewater flow into a solid waste material and into a water flow, which can be 100% reused as feed water.
Have you prepared your company for the change in legislation and regulations? High costs are charged for the discharge of waste water. With a water recycling installation you are definitely prepared for the new legislation and regulations, you avoid significant recurring costs and you benefit from the other advantages of this particularly efficient method of water recycling.
AMKCO Europe is regularly asked by companies how they could improve their water recycling installation’s compliance with legislation in the near future. Kwekerij Zeurniet – a well-known pot plant nursery in Honselersdijk – was one of the companies that submitted its problem question to AMKCO Europe.
In 2016, nursery Zeurniet invested in a water recycling installation with a sieve bend. This installation resulted in the necessary savings, but they noticed that the system still entailed a lot of costs in terms of discharged water. AMKCO Europe tested various filtration systems for the company and eventually arrived at an AMKCO vibrating sieve. Now Kwekerij Zeurniet has a highly optimised, cost-saving and environment-saving system. This has reduced the amount of water discharged by 100%. With this installation, the nursery took a very big step with a view to the upcoming legislative change.
An existing water recycling installation with a combination of a screen bend, sand filtration/automatic filter and UV treatment already results in less waste water. However, a water recycling installation can be made even more efficient by adding an AMKCO vibrating sieve.
By placing a vibrating sieve early in the water recycling process, almost all solid particles are filtered out immediately with a high capacity. The result is only solid matter and a water stream that can be 100% reused as feed water. The addition of the AMKCO vibrating sieve to the water recycling installation means a significantly more efficient way of treating water. Less pollution, more reuse, less costs and less time!
