The automotive industry is a major consumer of water. According to some estimates, producing a car uses an astonishing 40,000 gallons of water. Water is used in nearly every stage of the auto manufacturing process and water treatment for the automotive industry must be reliable and sustainable. Metal finishing, boiler feed, cooling tower makeup, and the paint shop all require large volumes of water. Top performing auto manufacturers now set water efficiency goals as low as 1 m3 per unit. In order to reach these sustainability goals, organizations need to source highly efficient forms of water treatment technology to remain competitive.
Our Systems can achieve up to 98% while operating under real-world conditions, a mark that most other reverse osmosis systems have not achieved. Generally, our systems operate in the 90-95% range. Each individual’s maximum recovery is based on the chemistry of its feedwater, and the only real limiting factor is the feedwaters scaling potential.
CCRO allows plant operations to focus their attention on more critical matters as the systems automatically adapt to varying feed water and allow for remote control of the system if there are changes that do need to be made.
