Reduces water consumption
06 July 2015
Washing the Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) used extensively in the BioTech, Pharmaceutical and Food processing sectors can mean high energy and water consumption.
With an eye on sustainability for manufacturing, IBC cleaning specialist Suncombe has introduced a new version of its IBCWashBooth which is able to recirculate the washing solutions, thus reducing water consumption by up to 80%, as well as offering additional benefits.
Users can choose to recirculate the washing solutions or maintain single pass cleaning. The choice of recirculation or single pass can be switched on or off within every step of every wash programme (recipe), allowing companies to achieve a fully repeatable, validatable recipe while, at the same time, minimising water usage without affecting the washing quality.
Suncombe has also incorporated its Spurge Bar technology into the booths to minimise liquid flow-rates, whilst consequently reducing consumption of cleaning additives, energy usage and effluent generation.
