Request: The products to be treated in the evaporation plant are cutting fluids and water containing hydrocarbons. The facility to treat the aforementioned waste must have a treatment capacity of 1000 L/hour, 24 hours a day. To conform to specific and restrictive discharge limits stipulated by local laws.

Solution: Complete treatment plant with preliminary physico-chemical system phase + main phase with ENVIDEST MVR FC 1500 vacuum evaporator + later refining phase using BIOCARB biological system + peripherals.


Discharge at collector to conform to legal limits, thus achieving very low energy consumption in the plant.
