Industry is one of the largest consumers of water. Water is used in a wide variety of forms and in many different industrial activities, resulting in the need to comply with strict obligations, both in terms of water quality and in terms of its availability or quantity.
Often, the quality of water required for the industry is identical to that of human consumption, being able to admit more or less steps depending on its requirement.
The treatment of the produced effluents is also a challenge for the companies, and reuse must always be a point to be studied.
Although, in most cases, the produced effluents present pollutant loads that are much higher than domestic/urban effluents, the associated treatment technologies are similar.
To meet these needs, Moinhos Água e Ambiente develops and implements turn-key solutions, using the processes and technologies most appropriate to each industry:
In the Food sector, Moinhos Group has worked in the most varied industries – dairy, meat, fish, fruit, cellars – in the implementation of the most varied systems:
In the first ten years of its existence, Moinhos Água e Ambiente concentrated its activity in the north of the country, at the time, strongly developed in the textile industry. In fact, there are numerous references of Moinhos in this industrial sector, in the field of water treatment necessary for the different processes and in the treatment of the respective wastewater. Moinhos Água e Ambiente was a pioneer in this industry in the development and implementation of ozone treatment technologies and solutions, both for the removal of the color characteristic of wastewater, replacing physical-chemical processes, and for its reuse for the industrial process .
In the textile sector, the following technologies are highlighted:
Moinhos Água e Ambiente has important work carried out at the level of the chemical industry, and other industries, namely plastics, metal-mechanics or scrap metal. In these industries, treatment plants with the most varied systems are implemented, namely:
Moinhos Água e Ambiente has been developing important projects in refineries in Portugal, namely at the level of:
Replacement waters in marine fish farms and recirculation waters in closed fish farms should be of high quality in order to maintain all biological masses healthy and with good levels of growth.
Moinhos Água e Ambiente has specific technology for this area, which combines oxidation/cracking by ozone and the extraction of particulate matter through skim.
The process unfolds in a MAOZONEtech reactor adapted for this specific purpose, where the way the ozone is applied makes all the difference. Each system is designed according to the flow rate of water to be treated, the dose of ozone to be applied and the need for air to be introduced to process the skimming.
Moinhos Água e Ambiente also designs and manufactures specific oxygen dissolution systems, adapted to the physical conditions of each particular case and according to the needs.
Moinhos counts on numerous references, in this sector, with the following purposes:
