Save Water with Wash Maximizer I
Close the plate-washing loop in the dry charge operation by installing
Tiegel's Wash Maximizer I. This will reduce waste water to 40 gallons per
three shifts. Water is saved in three ways:
- Water from the SmartDry is cooled and returned via a cooling tower
or heat exchanger.
- Slow flow is at a minimum while maintaining washing efficiency with
three slow flow tanks. Ninety-nine percent of acid is removed. H2SO4 of
up to 4 percent concentration is recovered for re-use in wet battery production.
- High-flow, salt-free wash water is recirculated through Tiegel's unique
acid-sponge beds. The remaining 1 percent of acid is neutralized and does
not come in contact with the product. The recovered acid and salt-free
water is filtered for any remaining particulates. This produces crystal
clear water for washing plates and elements.
