Process and Water Selected by Whelen Engineering to Provide Innovative, Closed-Loop Wastewater Recycling System
Process and Water, a leading manufacturer and designer of advanced water purification, filtration and chemical treatment systems, today announced that it has been selected by Whelen Engineering to provide an advanced wastewater recycling system. Whelen Engineering is a leading U.S. manufacturer of safety and emergency warning systems for industries including aviation, automotive, emergency response, marine and transportation. The new wastewater recycling system being provided by Process and Water will enable Whelen to virtually eliminate all environmental impacts on water resources from the company’s manufacturing and production processes.
Custom-designed for Whelen’s specific requirements, the new system is among the most advanced developed by Process and Water to date. It will enable the Whelen team to effectively handle the challenges of dealing with metal-bearing wastewater streams in efficient and environmentally friendly ways. The ‘closed-loop’ system will utilize several proprietary Process and Water components and subsystems including a unique ion exchange treatment, chemical regeneration, and patented evaporation technology. Once installed, the system will enable Whelen Engineering to meet its goal of completely eliminating all discharge of wastewater from its plating, etching, and other processes into municipal water systems/
“After an extensive evaluation process, we selected Process and Water as our wastewater recycling system provider for three reasons. First is their expertise in delivering innovative, sustainable water systems that safeguard our critical water resources, which is a priority for us,” said Eric Soderberg, Sr. Mfg. Engineer and Alex Stepinski, PCB FAB Division Manager second. “Second is their value-based approach and the resulting cost-effectiveness of their products. The third important consideration was that like us, Process and Water is U.S.-based firm with a strong regional commitment. These factors made it an easy decision for our team.”
“Whelen Engineering sets a high bar for quality and innovation in everything they do, so we’re pleased that they saw the value in working with our firm,” said Process and Water CEO Tom Belmont. “We’re confident that our distinctive manufacturing and service capabilities will align with the Whelen team’s approach and meet their expectations.”
