Aquarius H2O Dynamics, an Indian OEM focusing on wastewater treatment, recently selected NX Filtration to supply its hollow fiber direct nanofiltration (dNF) membranes for a water recycling application at Kewal Kiran Clothing Limited (KKCL), a leading denim jeans company in India. Aquarius H2O Dynamics will develop a water recycling plant at KKCL with a capacity of 700 m3 per day based on 32 dNF40 membrane modules of NX Filtration, that remove color completely and reduce large parts of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and total dissolved solids (TDS) partially from wastewater. This enables the reuse of this wastewater in KKCL’s facilities.
Sandeep Patel, director of Aquarius H2O Dynamics, said, “Earlier this year we piloted with NX filtration’s unique hollow fiber direct nanofiltration membranes, which impressed our customer KKCL with the superior water quality that we could produce. An additional benefit is the compactness and ease of operation of this solution, which can easily be integrated in their operations. The system based on dNF technology enables the direct treatment of the wastewater without intensive pre-treatment and can lead to over 95% recycling of the wastewater stream.”
Manish Ghogle, sales manager of NX Filtration in India, said, “Our innovative hollow fiber direct nanofiltration membranes enable this simple and sustainable process of reusing industrial wastewater, significantly reducing the water footprint of KKCL. Compared to traditional wastewater treatment methods, we reduce the number of filtration steps, avoid the use of chemicals in the pre-treatment of the wastewater and significantly reduce energy use.”
