ZS VSD screw blower technology hade made the Sandoz effluent treatment plant in Navi Mumbai, India, reduce their total carbon footprint with 1.5% and their energy usage with 17%. Bonus: they benefit from substantially lower noise levels too, now. The aeration process in Sandoz’s effluent treatment plant used to be managed by conventional lobe blowers. After experiencing reliability problems, the company decided to shift to state-of-the-art screw blowers. Atlas Copco’s ZS screw blower with variable speed drive have proven to guarantee reliable performance and energy savings.
“Our structured approach to minimize our environmental impact has helped us make considerable progress. Our waste management strategy is to prevent, reduce and recycle waste before treatment, incineration or disposal”, says Nitin Chaudhari, Assistant Manager, Engineering, Sandoz Pvt. “The effluent treatment plant is very critical for us to ensure that we walk our talk. Atlas Copco’s low-pressure screw blowers have helped us take an important step towards reducing energy cost and keeping the plant operating efficiently.”
