Toveko Filter for the Brewery Industry

H+E UK is pleased to announce that it has received an order for another of its TOVEKO continuous gravity self-cleaning sand filters from a brewery company in Southern Poland.

The company and will soon install a new Wastewater Treatment Plant. The discharge limits that it must conform to mean that it cannot discharge more than 5mg/l of suspended solids, a limit that TOVEKO filters have long experience of successfully meeting. For its peak discharge flow rate of 75m3/h, a model T-900 TOVEKO filter was selected, as shown  here in the picture.

Actually, as you can see, the T-900 is effectively two filters that can be operated separately if required. This means that, when occasional maintenance is required, one half of the filter can remain in operation anyway!

There were several advantages for the company in choosing a TOVEKO filter:

1.    The filter is only 2.3m high. This means that incoming flow from the preceding clarifier is by gravity, avoiding the capital, operating and maintenance costs for an inter-stage pumping system.

22  2. Also, the filter’s low height meant that it can be installed in standard- height room, which minimises the investment cost for the plant room.

3.    3. TOVEKO filters monitor the actively monitor the condition of the filter bed. This means that when the occasional problem occurs upstream and the suspended solids load entering the filter increases above normal level, the filter reacts by automatically increasing the rate at which it washes the dirty sand until the situation returns to normal.

The TOVEKO filter’s stainless steel construction means that it will have a long service life without the need for any re-painting etc.

This brewery will join a long list of satisfied clients, many of whom have been enjoying the benefits of TOVEKO filters for more than 25 years!
