Water treatment installation for polishing glass
Powder dosing unit
A measured volume of demineralised water is heated with steam to approximately 70°C. The abrasive powder is then precisely weighed using a dosing system and mixed with the demineralised water in the mixing tank. Now the water is pumped into a dosing tank and is ready for use. It is then dosed onto the glass at a certain flow rate.
Wastewater treatment unit
After polishing, this water stream must be treated for reuse. For this purpose, we built the wastewater treatment installation with which we can recirculate the water in a closed circuit. The water is coagulated, neutralised and flocculated, with the pollution forming flakes that settle into sludge. A vacuum belt filter dewaters this sludge in a continuous system with limited manual input. This involves working in a closed circuit.
