HRS highlights importance of efficiency in wastewater treatment
HRS Heat Exchangers, Stand E12, Hall 4, SMAGUA 2019
At SMAGUA 2019 Stand E12, HRS Heat Exchangers will explain why resource and energy efficiency is just as important when dealing with wastewater streams as it is for fresh water availability.
Under Article 9 of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD), governments have a responsibility to apply the principle of recovering all costs associated with water services, including environmental and resource costs. These can be wide ranging; from managing abstraction to ensure sufficient flows in water catchments, through to ensuring that any water discharged back into the natural environment does not lead to environmental damage or degradation.
HRS Heat Exchangers produces a full range of heat exchangers and other equipment for the water and environmental sectors. Whether you are looking to recover valuable heat energy from clean water streams, or need a full Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system for industrial sludge, HRS has the solution.
In particular, the Unicus and DTI Series of scraped surface heat exchangers are ideal for the treatment of high fouling sludge and effluents. Applications include pasteurisation of sludge before discharge or further treatment; evaporation to reduce sludge and waste volumes; or cleaning water so that it can be reused. From standard heat exchangers and treatment systems, high levels of operational thermal efficiency are combined with the best materials and heat regeneration to ensure long lasting and efficient operation.
It is almost nine years since the adoption of the WFD and governments across Europe are now well advanced in implementing it at a national level. As a result, it is more important than ever that everyone involved in water use, management and treatment – from industrial and agricultural users through to municipal water and sewerage organisations – is operating not only in the most economically sustainable way, but also with the lowest possible environmental impact.
