New Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant
H+E has received an order to design, build, install and commission a new plant to ensure that the client's effluent is discharged well within the Consented limits. We know very well that maintaining production is the most important factor and the treatment plant is therefore simply providing a service.
The plant shown above is a similar, though larger capacity plant installed some years ago. This new plant is being designed to handle up to 20m3/h of incoming wastewater, which is a relatively common flow rate required for many companies. This is the second one of this size that we are currently designing.
Designing for the future
For us, it is very important to know both what our clients’ needs are and also how those needs might change in the future. The required quality of treated effluent discharged has become much more stringent over the years because of increased environmental concerns. BAT (Best Available Technique) is now a very important part of designing plants. Water must be used efficiently to produce less effluent. The possibility of recycling treated effluent is becoming a more important consideration. So, all the plants we design and install take such needs into account, not necessarily by adding in all options now, but by ensuring that they can easily be added in the future.
H+E has been designing, manufacturing and installing such plants for many years. Our roots do actually go back to 1896! We always have at the top of our “wish list” that every single client of ours must be satisfied with what we provide. So, we make sure that the treated wastewater meets the necessary quality requirements and at a reasonable cost. The plant will do this job both efficiently and for many years.
As a matter of course, we offer long-term Service visits and Technical Support to every client. You decide whether you accept this or not and how often you would like them. We do have many clients who do so and, what’s more, many plants which are still working well after 25 years and more. We are currently in discussions with one long-term client to upgrade a plant that was installed in the early 1990s. It is still working fine, although it now needs a bit of “TLC”!
Our wish is to maintain long-term contact with every client.
