Boost in Efficiency for Top Chemical Distribution Company

07 August 2014

When Brenntag, a global market leader in chemical distribution needed to replace its effluent monitoring and batch control systems, it turned to Bürkert for the complete solution. The end of life equipment was in need of replacement and improvement at the same time; a task that required expert knowledge of both design and installation. The result was a more efficient plant which complied with local water authority requirements as well as a recommendation to repeat the design at another facility.

For a company involved in chemical storage, manufacture and distribution, the relationship with the local water authority is understandably well established. Brenntag is required to provide regular pH and flow readings for its discharge of effluent, however this had become a very time consuming and inefficient exercise. As a company that takes its responsibilities to the environment very seriously, Brenntag decided that a new system was required that would provide automatic pH readings, pH adjustments and flow readings - all of which could be logged and reported to the local water authority.

Furthermore, possible improvements were also identified with the batch control systems for producing Sodium Hypochlorite, Sodium Hydroxide and Hydrochloric acid. These systems also needed to be replaced with a design that improved efficiency and productivity. The entire project was awarded to Bürkert Fluid Control Systems; as a leading manufacturer of measuring and control systems; it was ideally placed to provide a turnkey solution.
