Improving factory output with a new water recycling system

Inadequate water supply hinders production

A lack of reliable, high-quality water can limit production and threaten profitability. As resources become less abundant, manufacturing organizations are finding it challenging to access plentiful, clean, and dependable water sources. An international parts manufacturer for the heavy industry experienced this challenge when their city didn’t supply enough water for their increasing production demand. So, they relied on MacDermid Envio to implement a circular economy strategy to get the most use out of their wastewater.


Growth inhibited by water limitations

Business was good for this parts manufacturer. They were experiencing issues keeping up with the demand product — a problem most companies want to have. To keep up with the demand for their parts, they opened a facility in Georgia. They didn’t realize the facility’s existing permit for 1,500 gallons per day was inadequate. It only provided a fraction of the 30,000 gallons of rinse water required for daily manufacturing operations.

The MacDermid Envio Solution

More rinse water by recycling and reusing wastewater

Using nearly fifty years of experience with industrial wastewater, MacDermid Envio evaluated the parts manufacturer’s challenges. MacDermid Envio’s team of experts discovered that a wastewater batch recycling system would yield the high-quality effluent they needed to reuse as rinse water. The system also automates more concentrated waste streams for separate treatment.

Matching the right technology to the client’s needs to provide a complete solution, MacDermid Envio engineered a highly efficient, cost-effective configuration enhanced with automated controls. Further, the modular nature of the system ensures future growth potential without extensive changes or substantial capital costs.


An industrial water management strategy

Today, the Georgia parts manufacturer can recover 99.8% of its water while using only half of the permitted 1,500 gallons per day. The manufacturer can now focus on making high-quality products and growing its business without the fear of wastewater and recycling constraints.
