Commercial laundry application

H20 Industries’ High Turbidity GreyWater Treatment System has been able to successfully treat greywater collected from commercial laundries, residential and office buildings to class A+ quality.

Since early 2008, it has provided Princes Fabricare (Burleigh Heads) with a recycling system that is treating approximately 15,000 litres per hour of laundry raw water. Permeate recovery for this site has been in the vicinity of 9000–12,000 litres per hour. As the re-used water is returned hot through each washing machine by reticulating the water within seconds, energy consumption is also minimised.

A rigorous testing regime conducted by the Queensland state government for accreditation purposes, and to meet commercial laundry usage, has ensured the reticulated water produced by H20’s technologies is suitable for washing purposes without degradation of linen cleaning quality.

The greywater laundry industry is just one of the many industries that consume large amounts of water. Government regulations are now forcing all large commercial water users, including new high-rise buildings (class 3 to class 10), to conform with new legislation.

H20 Industries is looking forward to the commencement and completion of several projects in 2009, one of them being the AMP Six Star Green Star Building located at 31 Little Cribb Street, Milton, Brisbane, to start in July. The system provided at this location will treat all handbasin and shower water for re-use through toilets and irrigation.
