FAN Separator: a good contribution to environmental protection.
Paper production is water intensive. Water is needed for manufacturing, for auxiliary and cleaning purposes. Modern factories producing - per ton of paper - about 10 to 50 cubic meters of wastewater, depending on whether they produce recycled paper or fresh pulp and paper. FAN equipment separates a high proportion of the solids, including micro plastic purely electro-mechanically out of wastewater streams. Also the amount of flocculent, i.a. made of polyacrylamide, which is conventionally added for the cleaning of the wastewater, can be reduced by usage of FAN separators. Extrapolations showing, that the amount of micro plastics, which gets annually into the soil by sewage sludge only, is greater than the amount that lands in the oceans. The treatment of the wastewater and the environmentally friendly disposal of the sludge, is thus - more relevant than ever - a responsible task.
