This Kemco CMF/RO filtration system is designed to treat waste water from a Dairy’s evaporator and dryer CIP system. This waste stream contains a mix of residual milk product, water, and CIP chemicals with very high levels of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS). Prior to filtering this waste water with the Kemco CMF/RO filtration system, it was being hauled offsite for disposal.
As shown in the table above and photo below, the Kemco System proved to be very effective in removing the contaminants that prevented this waste stream from being discharged to the municipal treatment system.
The Kemco CMF/RO has reduced the haul costs by 75% and the filtered water is currently being recycled as cooling tower make-up water, or being safely discharged to the municipal system.
