Among the components of keeping a shop clean is having an efficient water recycling system. But when it comes to making such an investment, some fabricators might not know what exactly makes a system complete and which one is best for their shop.
Manufacturers of fabrication machinery continue to research and develop new equipment to satisfy the needs of fabricators. As technology continues to advance it leads to innovative stoneworking machinery that results in better efficiency and less labor in the shop.
Stone World asked representatives from several manufacturers of water treatment systems to discuss the latest technological advances of this type of equipment and how a fabrication shop benefits from recycling water.
The Ebbco Cyclone Filtration System from Ebbco Inc. is designed to filter and deliver uninterrupted gray water to the entire shop. The system’s closed-loop design reuses 99% of shop water, eliminating daily fresh water consumption and consolidating waste disposal into easily manageable bags.
For stone fabricators, water is a tool. Just as you wouldn’t be likely to throw away your knife as it dulls, water can be easily rejuvenated to work for you as it did when it first entered the fabrication shop.
It may seem like there are a lot of choices for water use and recycling, but in reality, there are few that actually comply with today’s discharge regulations and the specific water quality requirements of select fabrication equipment. Before making the investment in a water treatment system, here are some options to consider.
Founded in 1992, Jianming Stone Group has set out on a course to improve its processes for stone production, including becoming "green." The company, located in Xiamen, China, has recently installed a new water filtration system at its plant to help improve operations and the environment.
For this issue of Stone World magazine we take a look at the Fabricator Forecast where fabricators let us know what they believe is the state of the industry. We also go one-on-one with Summer Kath of Cambria and take a look at the latest technology.
