Waste water treatment units

A manufacturer of modular partitions finally treats and recycles his rinsing water from gluing machines through a sustainable system

In France, a manufacturer of modular partitions has 2 lines of decor gluing. Throughout the day, both gluing machines apply BOSTIK white glue on laminated surfaces. The gluing machines are cleaned at each end of the process with hot water, which generates 600 to 800L of dirty water daily. 

A latest-generation microstation and a suitable coagulant/flocculant formulation to ensure responsible wastewater management

In France, a manufacturer of modular partitions has 2 lines of decor gluing. Throughout the day, both gluing machines apply BOSTIK white glue on laminated surfaces. The gluing machines are cleaned at each end of the process with hot water, which generates 600 to 800L of dirty water daily. The discharge of heavily polluted water was done into natural environment. Concerned about his corporate image and the ecological consequences, the industrialist approached Niskae, seeking a solution for the treatment and the recycling of wastewater that is both sustainable and economical.

We have installed a semi-automatic SW200 water treatment microstation, which is perfectly adapted to the daily flows of wash water. Wastewater samples analyzed in the laboratory allowed us to formulate a coagulant and flocculant reagent specifically adapted to the contaminants that were found. The installation includes;

  • A wastewater storage tank that can collect up to 1000L of wash water; The tank is equipped with an agitator to prevent any decantation.
  • A reactor associated with two filtration bags for the physicochemical treatment of water and the sludge processing by coagulation and flocculation;
  • A clear water storage tank with a capacity of 1000L equipped with an electrical resistance for hot water and a temperature control at 40-45 degrees Celsius;
  • Powerful pneumatic pumps associated with water level control systems.

No wastewater destruction costs and protection of the environment

The water treatment station was set up in the center of the workshop at an equivalent distance from the two gluing machines. For each of the gluing machines, we installed a utility hole for the collection of dirty water and a lift station equipped with a pneumatic pump and a water-level management. A piping system of about 50 linear meters per installation allows the transfer of dirty water from each gluing machine to the treatment station and the wastewater storage tank.

The same piping circuits incorporate a return of clear water, previously heated and pressurized, to ensure the cleaning of the gluing machines. Dirty water is thus continuously treated and recycled, using reliable, industrial and easy to use equipment.

The NISKAE micro-station, autonomous and reliable, is totally respectful of the environment. The manufacturer has freed himself from the cost of destroying pollutants while enhancing his brand image. The Niskae team is happy to support a new customer towards the responsible management of wastewater!
