Al Oxide Powder Separation Project AtSandvik Asia

Al Oxide Powder Separation Project At Sandvik Asia, Pune

The Separator is used for a special application viz. separation of Aluminium Oxide powder from water. The Al Oxide powder is used in grinding processes as an abrasive, due to its hardness & strength.

The Al oxide slurry, after the process, was being discarded to the ETP. This increased the load on the ETP and also amounted to a lot of water wastage. The Separator System is provided with a centralized collection tank. Al oxide slurry, from the process, is collected in this tank. The Separator gets activated when the centralized tank gets filled-up. The slurry is efficiently cleaned by the Separator. The Separator shuts-off when the slurry in the tank reaches the low level.

The Al oxide powder slurry is cleaned efficiently, the dewatered powder is collected and the clean water recycled for process use. Thus effectively reducing the load on ETP and ensuring savings in water and powder recovery.

Aquarius provided a special arrangement to pump the sludge to the ground level and subsequently to dewater it with the Separator system.

The suggested system will help Faiveley to clean the sludge pit with ease and also to reduce their costs on cleaning, disposal and maintenance work substantially.
Repeat Order for Pit-less Paint Sludge Removal System atJamna Auto Industries

Repeat Order for Pit-less Paint Sludge Removal System at Jamna Auto Industries

Conventionally, a multi-booth paint shop would normally have a centralized sludge pit for sludge collection. Among other problems, the sludge pit added to the maintenance woes, amounted to substantial civil cost, created pollution hazard and occupied lot of space. The trend today is to have paint shops without any sludge pits.

At Jamna Auto, the Paint Sludge Separator Systems are a part of the new paint shops coming up at Jamshedpur and Yamunanagar. The compact system is connected directly to 2 nos. paint booths. The Separator cleans the paint booths individually and the sludge is dewatered effectively.

Greaves Cotton Ltd., Pune : GCL has an existing paint shop for their Diesel Engine Unit. Presently, the removal of paint sludge from the paint booths is done manually and quite tedious. Also, they have a requirement of cleaning used oil at times.

Varroc Polymers Order for Automatic Paint Sludge Separator A-25

Varroc Polymers has placed an order for a completely Automatic Paint Sludge Separator System for their new plant in Chakan.

The new paint shop, being put up by M/s Plustech Systems, has a centralized sludge pit. A special floating suction device is provided in the sludge pit for effective collection of the floating paint sludge. The sludge is pumped to an overhead overflow tank. The sludge concentration is increased in the overflow tank. Subsequently, the paint sludge from the overflow tank is pumped to the Automatic Separator.

The sludge is separated from the water at a very high efficiency and also dewatered effectively in the Separator. The dried sludge is automatically removed into a collection trolley. The clean water is returned to the sludge pit.

The separator has advanced HMI system and the PLC controls are with required system safeties in-built. The control panel is connected to the SCADA system of the customer.

New Overflow Tank Design for Paint Sludge Pits

A new Overflow (OF) Tank has been designed for the efficient collection and concentration of the paint sludge from the sludge pit, which can be easily pumped to a centrifuge separator.

The OF tank is designed for those sludge pits, which do not have a skimmer tank or de-sludger system attached to it. Unlike skimmers, the OF tank does not have a skimmer arm and the sludge is allowed to float inside the tank. The trapezoid shaped tank is so designed to collect the floating paint sludge at one end, with the help of a specially designed suction device. The sludge is pumped to the centrifuge separator through this suction device.

The paint sludge sent to the centrifuge separator gets effectively dewatered and the clean water is sent back to the sludge pit.

As compared to the base value of 2011, VW India Pune plant has been able to reduce specific ‘Waste Generation’ by 30.5%.

Volkswagen Pune Plant, one of the 27 Volkswagen automotive manufacturing facilities worldwide, follows the ‘Think Blue. Factory.’ initiative to achieve environment-friendly manufacturing. Through this initiative, Volkswagen aims at reducing the impact of its manufacturing process on the environment by 25% per car globally through its participating facilities.

Three years into the program, the Pune plant has already surpassed the set target in the area of ‘Waste Generation’ and is close to achieving its targets in the areas of ‘CO2 Emissions’ and ‘Energy Consumption’. Rounding off the fruitful results of Volkswagen India was the consistent progress shown in the area of ‘Water Consumption’. Amongst the five key measurable areas, maximum reduction has been achieved in the area of ‘Waste Generation’.
