Manufacturing, heavy industry, infrastructure and commercial building facilities can be responsible for processing their waste water before releasing it back into the water ways. Water quality charges can be complex and based on water testing at specific intervals.

Technology advances in water processing through UV filtering, reverse osmosis, separators, decanters, presses and so on can be utilised to improve water quality, increase recycle rates and decrease waste water charges.

In addition, some applications allow us to generate energy or create value add products from waste water. For example, biogas from piggery waste or highly fertile organic material for fertilisers.

Who can accurately measure flow without cutting the pipe? Flowservices can

Key Outcomes 

  • Much higher accuracy and repeatability achieved with non-intrusive clamp-on technology compared to the previously installed open channel meter
  • 3 to 4 times more cost effective than in line flow meter options
  • Maintenance-free with no moving parts or water contact
  • Better measurement performance than the other clamp-on flow meters tested by the customer
  • Ability to offer 80m sensor cable without need of a junction box
  • Great local service and support through Flowservices (FLEXIM distributor)

Business Problem 

MidCoast Water wanted to improve the flow monitoring of water that was pumped from their Bootawa dam to the Bootawa Water Treatment Plant. They engaged Floservices to design a cost-efficient solution in the form of clamp-on ultrasound flow measurement.

Meat Production Turning Waste Into Biogas

Key Outcomes

  • Total project value: €3 million
  • ​Implementation of biogas plant where no source of existing anaerobic bacteria was available
  • Full operating load being digested into biogas plant
  • Significant reduction in greenhouse gas, odour emissions and solid waste disposal
  • 70% reduction in bunker oil consumption and market exposure
The Project

Finn Biogas worked with their client to build an on-site biogas plant converting manure, rumen content, fatty waste and blood into biogas which is now used to fire an on-site boiler for rendering operations.

Converting heat waste into energy used for mine cooling

Key outcomes

  • Cost savings of $2.7 million per annum
  • Total project value $5.5 million
  • 18 month payback period
  • Saves 5000 tonnes of CO2 per annum

The ST Barbara mine in Leonora, Western Australia, had multiple gas generators which were producing heat waste. ETS was engaged to design and install an exhaust system which captures that waste heat and turns it into 5.6MW of additional capacity. The mine uses this additional capacity for its underground cooling system which means that traditional and much more expensive methods of expanding the cooling capacity were no longer required.

Superior Belt Cleaning System

Key Outcomes

  • 12-month Return On Investment (ROI)
  • 93% time saving allowing skilled workers to focus on high value tasks
  • 98.5% water and 100% detergent reduction
  • Improved food safety
  • Turn-around time reduced by 100%

Problem Summary
A baked goods manufacturer ("the client") was experiencing bottleneck issues with their conveyor cleaning process. This process was taking three factory staff 80 minutes to complete each day. The process also used 200 litres of water and detergent. This was causing high production, labour and utility costs. The client turned to Bio-Steam to help them improve this process.
