Hydro MicroScreen™ improves water treatment for Tamil Nadu tannery

A pilot trial proved to a Tamil Nadu tannery that the Hydro MicroScreen™ will cut costs, improve efficiency and reduce pollution. 

Situation

A leather goods producer in Tamil Nadu, India, wanted to improve its process water treatment efficiency. 

Problem

Existing treatment technologies were ineffective, delivering poor TSS removal and generating sludge with only 20% dry solids - increasing disposal costs. 

Solution

The tannery identified the Hydro MicroScreen™ rotating belt screen as a potential improvement opportunity, and ran a pilot trial to determine effectiveness. 

Outcome

The pilot trial demonstrated improved TSS removal, and generated sludge with 40% dry solids - proving that the technology will cut costs, improve downstream efficiency and reduce effluent pollution.
