George Koch Sons, LLC has introduced the Koch Rejuvenator, a stand-alone system that can link to new or existing processing lines to optimize cleaning chemical costs, reduce waste disposal expenditure and enhance production quality.

 

“The Koch Rejuvenator, which effectively cleans the cleaning solution, removes over 99% of oil and dirt from the cleaning stage and returns up to 97 percent of the solution back to the system for re-use,” says Sam Woehler, Vice President of Sales for George Koch Sons, LLC.  “It captures both floating and emulsified oils while reducing chemical costs by minimizing the need for chemical dosing.”

 

The skid-mounted Koch Rejuvenator is simply located alongside and connected to the cleaner process tank.  It utilizes a ceramic membrane and highly efficient, ultra-filtration technology to remove waste materials from the wash water before returning it to the process.  Because it maintains an extremely high quality level of wash solution, it benefits both production efficiency and effectiveness, helping the component or parts cleaning operation to be optimized.

 

“Since the rejuvenator continuously cleans the cleaner bath, the cleaning process is much more consistent, parts emerge cleaner, and tank dumps are greatly reduced,” adds Sam Woehler.  “Also, because the focus is on recovery and re-use at the source, early in the process, in many instances waste treatment at the end of the process is reduced.”

 

Payback can be achieved in less than three years with savings also arising from the need for only minimal maintenance and cleaning, and the fact that that waste oil can also present an opportunity for onward selling.

 

“This is a significant step in an important area of the metal treatment and finishing sector and one that has already been proven in typical installations in America,” comments Tom Neeley, Product Manager at George Koch’s global headquarters in Indiana.
