A soap manufacturer in the Toronto area had issues with excessive foaming in production areas, wastewater tanks, and sewer systems on their property. They were consuming significant volumes of de-foaming chemicals and still encountering issues. They turned to JNE Environmental for a plant assessment and solution.
After investigating, JNE was able to find several areas of opportunity to reduce air entrainment in the flow boards and piping systems. In addition to this, JNE built a 1:16 scale model of their sewer discharge to test design parameters of foam suppression using specialized sprayers.
