What is the AquaDrain?
What it does
The AquaDrain filters waste water, typically backflush water from water recycling equipment such as the BlueOcean filter, the AquaBatch, the AquaMiser or the AquaHeater Plus P. This backflush water contains all the sand, hairs, fibres, lint and other solid particles already filtered out of your process water. Collecting all this dirt means it can be disposed of separately. The filtered backflushwater can be re-used in your washing process if required. Either way, the AquaDrain means that your pipes will no longer become clogged by the solid dirt particles from your customer’s textiles. Cleaner discharge water means lower COD and, depending on your regulations locally, potentially a big reduction in disposal charges.
Clean up the dirty end
Cleaning your backflush water with the AquaDrain gives multiple benefits: lower COD values of discharge water, fewer clogged pipes and (optionally) recycled water for re-use. And all this for a very modest investment.
How it works
The AquaDrain filters all solid dirt particles out of the waste (backflush) water using a specially designed bag. The choice of filter bag (range of 3 grades of fineness available) determines whether the filtered water can be re-used in your process. Even choosing the lowest grade gives you water clean enough to discharge in almost all instances. (You do need to check with your local authorities for the regulations applying to your situation.)
Crucial to the design of the AquaDrain is its action; the filter bag is activated to swing back and forth when working. This gives optimal filtration and flowthrough. Designed by us exclusively for Ecolab, the AquaDrain is a low investment product with a big impact.
