We all look for better ways to improve our manufacturing processes without creating additional environmental issues. No one wants to be the source of environmental damage. But the processes we often use to create the products that run the globe aren’t always environmentally friendly. Often the process of manufacturing must grapple with energy usage and waste effluent, leading to environmental criticism. But environmentally conscious practices don’t have to mean less efficiency and market share.
For example, the way companies treat wastewater, such as effluent, can actually decrease overall waste and improve production efficiency at the same time. Waste water is a particular target for environmental protection groups because of its ease of detection in our water reserves as well as the visceral reaction the public has to th sight of it. It is a “necessary evil,” so to speak – both for the environment and for the manufacturer! In the past, neutralizing wastewater has been a multi-tank endeavor that takes a lot of space, time and energy. However, with innovative equipment, that no longer has to be the case. Komax’s Teflon and Kynar static mixers drastically improve this process with a simple addition to the pipeline.
The lined mixers transport this process with no moving parts or electrical input or additional maintenance, meaning the cost is much lower. This is good news for those in the industry trying to reduce energy costs and their energy footprints. All mixing takes place within the unit, so no need for downstream pipes or additional tank space – great news for places with limited space but that still need an upgrade in equipment. The Teflon or Kynar coating means that over time, concentrations aren’t corroding the tank, saving the business money and the environment a potential leak.
Partnering with an innovative manufacturer like Komax can mean you don’t have to compromise on your bottom line when it comes to environmental responsibility. Satisfy your production requirements and fulfill your best practices to produce responsibly.
