PRESTIGE MOTORS CLEANED UP ON PROCESS WATER
Jaguar Land Rover invested in a 120-hectare site for their new low-emission engine manufacturing plant at a business park near Wolverhampton.
Our client's requirements for treated process water at the site included:
- Very specific water quality requirements including parameters for Chloride, Sulphite and Conductivity for over three different processes.
- Requirement to meet variable water demands dependant on manufacturing load.
- Bacteriologically free process water and Biocide free process water.
The plant and equipment was designed for the Jaguar Land Rover engine manufacturing plant to provide a primary source of de-ionized water as well as associated distribution ring-main. This water was to be further treated at various draw off points around the factories.
This is achieved by taking mains water from the towns-main, via a CAT 5 break tank, and passing this through duplexed CAT ION & AN ION de-ionisation streams. Once the water has been de-ionised it is dosed with Chlorine Dioxide to provide disinfection and to reduce the risk of bacteriological contamination in the system.
Over the course of the project, Clearwater faced some specific challenges including, highly flexible flow rates and no drainage. The finished system fully meets all of the clients technical requirements, and the project and management complied with all their site and organisational requirements.
