In 2012, Rolls-Royce, invested in a new factory in Rotherham (UK) dedicated to the advanced casting technologies for the production of aircraft engine blades.

Manufacturing operations cover all aspects of blade production:  Shell, Wax, Casting, leaching, etching, NDT, vibro-finish.

The Challenge

Puretech Env. Was appointed for the design, installation and commissioning of the complete waste water management and on-site effluent processing system including the storage and distribution of the process chemicals.

Due to the great variety of effluent and the high contamination loading of certain streams, the effluent segregation was a key part of the project and essential to its successful delivery.

Puretech Solution

The project included 13 pumping stations, the complete transfer pipework in dual containment with leak detections, the process and effluent treatment chemicals storage and the effluent processing system based on a conventional physico-chemical system: A complete turn-key package.

All the pumping stations are networked with the effluent plant control system which, in the frame of the maintenance agreement with RR, can be remotely accessed by the operators. Puretech Support Team can access the PLC to facilitate troubleshooting operations.
