ABB I-R Waterjet Systems combines the robotics and motion expertise of ABB Flexible Automation with high-pressure intensifier/pumping technology from Ingersoll-Rand to provide and continue to develop innovative waterjet cutting systems for global markets.
The purpose of this assignment is to develop a process water purifier. The purifier should be applicable as an option to ABB I-R’s production cell Cutting-Box.
At first hand the process water should be purified well enough to let out in the municipal sewage system, but the ultimate solution is purifying the process water to the range that recycling is possible.
When investigating the different principle of purifying water, a research of different products and their manufactories was done.
These different products were compared and the principle of filtration was the most applicable, as most of the products were designed for far larger applications.
As the process water contains quite large amount of particles, it is necessary to perform the filtration in different steps.
The process water purifier is therefore composed of a module of coarse filtration and one of micro filtration.
In the module of coarse filtration the mainly amount of fibres and particles are eliminated. They are kept back in the container unit with the larger fragments and dumped with these when the container is emptied.
In the module of micro filtration the filtration is performed in two steps.
In the first step particles larger than 50m are eliminated, in the second step the micro filter is setting the range of purifying, in this case 10m. The purified water is led on either for recycling or the municipal sewage system.
