Veolia Water Technologies - Case Studies - Hydrex reduces steam costs for Tamoin, UK

Client Needs

The Cargenbridge facility has four 17bar shell boilers supplying an average 14 tonnes per hour of steam, 50% of which is returned as condensate. The make-up water is treated by softening and reverse osmosis and the feed water is then conditioned with chemicals.

The treatment plant was supplied and serviced by Veolia Water Technologies but chemicals were supplied and monitored by another supplier. Site Manager, Malcolm Coupe, wanted to consolidate servicing into a single contract to integrate service provision and reduce administration.

Our Solution

Veolia Water Technologies offered a complete bespoke package covering the filter, softener, reverse osmosis plant and the supply of chemicals from their Hydrex range.
