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.

‘Think Blue. Factory’ award for Volkswagen India Pune Plant, with major contribution of Centrifuge Separators

Volkswagen India, (Pune) plant has received the prestigious ‘THINK BLUE. FACTORY’ award for the greatest progress in waste reduction.

One of the main measures contributing to this reduction was the recycling of paint sludge. This reduction was achieved by cutting down the moisture content from paint sludge using centrifuge Paint Sludge Separator.

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’.
