Weir Envig Secures Effluent Treatment Plant
Building on a proud track record and extensive reference list, Weir Envig has recently secured a turnkey contract for the design, supply and installation of an extensive water treatment plant at Iscor’s Vanderbijlpark Steel works in South Africa.
The plant will remove hardness and suspended solids from 2000 m³/h of process water circuit and salts from a separate cooling tower water system through the treatment of blowdown water. The treated water will be recycled for use as general utility water within the steel plant and the concentration process will produce a damp crystalline solid for disposal in a classified landfill site.
Weir Envig (SA), part of the Techna Division of The Weir Group PLC, provides effective and appropriate environmental solutions to the chemical, mining, mineral, pulp and paper and food and beverage industries. Weir Techna is a market leader in the use of membrane, evaporation and crystallization technologies for the recovery of high quality water and solid waste products from industrial water effluent streams.
The project will be executed out of Weir Envig Johannesburg Office in South Africa.
