RH Sheppard, an engineered products company wanted to double its wastewater processing capabilities.
It replaced an obsolete and energy-consuming evaporator with a Proceco Eco-Smart MVR (Mechanical Vapor Recompression). The Eco-Smart uses a low-energy distillation method that allows the company to recycle up to 98 percent of its industrial process water.
The Proceco Eco-Smart allowed RH Sheppard to increased its throughput by 400 percent over their previous evaporator, cutting the company’s run time by 50 percent and reducing its utilities consumption.
Annual purchases of liquid (including water and process fluids) flow control and treatment products and services in the heavy industrial sector will exceed $18 billion per year, according to a McIlvaine study published last month.
