New waste wash water recycling website launched in time for MACH

Aqueous parts washing specialist, MecWash, is delighted to announce that it has launched a brand new website for its wash water recycling operating division, Aqua-Save Technologies, in time for the company's attendance at MACH 2014.

Aqua-Save was established in 2006 to help maintain wash machine water quality and to solve the issue of disposing of industrial waste water - from both a production and environmental point of view.

The systems have been developed for the treatment and recycling of industrial waste water, including wash water from parts cleaning equipment, dye penetrant and waste coolant from metalworking operations.

The new website has been designed to reflect MecWash’s main site and provide customers with all of the details they may need to make an informed decision about Aqua-Save’s products and services - including details of government funding available which enables businesses to write off 100% of the cost of qualifying plant and machinery against taxable profits in the year of purchase.

Aqua-Save units that reuse more than 40% of the recovered waste water are eligible for the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme. ECA offers a 100% first-year allowance for investments in certain water efficient plant and machinery.

Aqua-Save machines can be fitted to any aqueous cleaning machines to effectively separate the coolant and other dissolved / emulsified contaminants (removed from components during the cleaning process) from the water; enabling the cleaned water to be returned to the process or to be reused elsewhere and vastly reducing the volume and cost of waste disposal.

Effluent can be reduced to under 5% of the original volume, and costs of more than £10,000 pa can be saved by using an Aqua-Save system - making the machines extremely popular with engineers around the world, as MecWash Managing Director, John Pattison, explains, “With environmental issues and associated legislation playing an increasingly important role in manufacturing, the Aqua-Save systems are becoming more and more popular – especially as there is currently funding available which effectively reduces the capital cost.

“We wanted a new website which would adequately reflect the scope of the machines in terms of their capability and the potential savings they can generate for customers. As a MecWash company, it was important that the new website fitted with our main site and we are very pleased with the results.”

Both wash water and waste coolant cost saving calculators have been included on the new site to provide customers with an idea of how much they could save, and it also includes a number of case studies outlining how Aqua-Save systems are used.
