Water Treatment Engineering for the Manufacturing Sector

The UK has a long history of manufacturing from the industrial revolution, through the factory innovation, and the transportation boom of railways and steam ships. Whilst the manufacturing sector’s share of both employment and the UK’s GDP has fallen since the 1960s, as of 2019 the manufacturing sector was worth £393 billion or $514 billion in the UK.

The industry has many sectors including food and beverage, microelectronics, paper tissue and board, chemical manufacturing, as well as textiles. Engineering and connected industries, however, comprise the single largest sector in the industry. Water is used in a variety of processes, and all water brought into a site which is not used in the product, or reused, (or other losses such as steam venting and leaks) is discharged as a waste product. This means there are significant opportunities for our customers to optimise water usage, reduce overall costs, and improve the carbon footprint.

Achieving sustainable cost savings with Hydro-X Engineering

From pure water for parts washing at an engine manufacturer, to the wastewater treatment at a chemical manufacturer, we know the importance of understanding challenging engineered water treatment challenges. It’s why Hydro-X Engineering are fully committed to providing flexible water treatment engineering to match your needs. We start with a good old-fashioned conversation. Not only to discuss the challenges being faced but also to ensure all parties understand the wider logistical, financial, ecological and sustainability issues at hand. This initial consultation is then followed up with a site survey and a meeting with all key stakeholders for additional peace of mind.

Next, it’s time for us at Hydro-X Engineering to get to work. Researching the problem, equipment and process engineering considerations, as well as in some cases carrying out lab work, field tests, and analysis. We can then present our proposal that will include an overview of the challenge and opportunity at hand. We include at this stage an investment figure. This will give us the ability to discuss funding options as well as Return On Investment (ROI) payback.

The implementation of Hydro-X Engineering’s work should be as seamless and low-impact for our customers as possible. This means that we work tightly to pre-arranged project plans, with key milestones and deliverables agreed in advance. All delivered by our project management and installation engineers, who we believe are the best in the industry. Once our bespoke equipment is installed and commissioned, we hand the system over to our customer, safe in the knowledge that all Hydro-X Engineering projects are complete with the long-term future in mind. Because we pride ourselves on the professionalism of our entire team, as well as the quality of the finished project. This commitment to quality and our customers is delivered within our ongoing service and maintenance package, ensuring all cost and performance efficiencies remain at the cutting-edge of water treatment technology.
