Industrial wastewater solutions for crack detection wastewater - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment

Tracking the tiniest cracks – with H2O wastewater treatment. Heavy use, material fatigue and material faults can cause tiny cracks in plastic and metal parts. These are so small that they are invisible to the naked eye. But they can still be relevant to safety, e.g. on the wings of passenger jets. That’s why these parts are regularly checked for micro cracks. One way of doing this is the dye penetration process, where the part to be checked is first thoroughly cleaned. Applying a special dye and using a suitable developer, the tiniest cracks become visible on the surface, enabling defective parts to be easily identified and replaced. If the crack check reveals no problems, the transfer agents are washed and approved for further operations.

But what happens to the resulting wastewater? It cannot be discharged into the public sewer system due to chemical contamination. It usually has to be disposed of with specialized waste management companies at high cost.

The VACUDEST vacuum distillation system is an economical disposal alternative. This internal wastewater treatment enables zero liquid discharge crack checks. And you’ll save up to 98 percent in disposal costs!

The rapid return on investment is another advantage: Thanks to VACUDEST’s low operation costs and sophisticated energy recycling, the investment in the vacuum distillation system usually pays off after 2 years.
