PROCESS WATER FILTER & CLARIFIER (PWFC)
D02-F1 increases DO at depth which generates a natural circulation of water while minimizing water body disturbance.
Power: Single phase
Filter: 50 microns
Clarifier: Colloidal solids
Winery washdown water is full of colloidal suspended solids. A colloid is a microscopically small substance and in wineries often shows as colour. The second stage PWFC process reduces coloids, result – clearer, cleaner water
What does the PWFC filter do?
The first stage PWFC process separates organic solids and litter to 50 microns, collected solids are extruded and removed as dry cake. Filtered water flows immediately on to stage two for clarification.
BENEFITS FOR WINEMAKERS
The PWFC is designed specifically for the water management challenges faced by the wine industry and completes the two-stage filtration and clarification process as washdown water flows from drains. Bi-products are Class B water and organic cake suitable for composting, maximizing value of processing water.
8 Steps from wasHdown to water re-use
1. Continue wine processing
Easy to install with a small footprint and single-phase power
2. Washdown as usual
Cleaning processes remain the same no additional effort
3. Pump water from sump
Washdown water collected in sump and pumped to PWFC
4 To first stage filtration
Solids are filtered to 50 microns water flows on to stage 2
5. Organic solids are removed
Removed solids extruded as dry cake for composting
6. Second stage clarification
Colliodal suspended solids that discolour water are removed
7. Clarified water flows to pond
Clarified water is safely stored odour-free in ponds or tanks
8. Class B water ready for re-use
Low BOD water can be re-used for washdown or irrigation
Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)
The term biological oxygen demand (BOD) is used to describe and quantify the likely consumption of O2 by that organic matter. In other words, how much DO2 is required to achieve a balance, so that water is healthy, free of noxious odours, aquatic life thrives and is re-useable.
FOOD & BEV process water filters
The Enviro Australis process water filters remove solids down to 20 microns. Bi-products are Class B water and organic materials suitable for compost. The need for pond settlement is reduced.
