We make sure the customer discharges clean water

A large chemical concern in the Rotterdam port area started producing a number of new products in mid-2020. This has changed the composition of the total wastewater stream. It is therefore possible that after treatment in the on-site WWTP, the effluent contains too high levels of suspended solids and heavy metals.

In order to still be able to meet the discharge requirement, an engineering firm has been engaged to review the issue. It became clear that treatment with ion exchange resin is needed to remove the heavy metals from the water. A so-called IX-filter ensures that the heavy metal ions are exchanged for non-harmful ions, making the treated effluent suitable for discharge. In order for the resins to perform optimally, a good pre-treatment is required, removing both suspended matter and any hydrocarbon residues.

Before embarking on a project for a permanent new WWTP, the engineering firm contacted Logisticon Rental to provide a rental solution.

Logisticon Rental has delivered a mobile installation in containers consisting of a sand filter system, a fine filtration, activated carbon filtration and finally the IX-filter. All installation parts, including the mobile buffers placed in drip trays to catch any leaks.

An effective modular and temporary installation that guarantees the client's discharge requirement, allowing them to focus on their core business.
