Another Toyota facility gets fluid-recycling system

Toyota's new Bodine Aluminum Inc. casting plant will sport a mechanical vapor-recompression-based fluid-recycling system designed and put into service by Houghton Fluidcare.

Toyota's new Bodine Aluminum Inc. casting plant in Jackson, Tenn., will sport a mechanical vapor-recompression-based fluid-recycling system (MVR) designed and put into service by Houghton Fluidcare, a division of Houghton International, Valley Forge, Pa. The Bodine plant die casts engine blocks for various Toyota vehicles and aluminum cases and housings for transmissions. The MVR system processes 15,000 gallon of liquid waste daily and expands as production needs increase. Houghton Fluidcare claims the system uses less than 2 cents/gallon of energy to recycle fluids and eliminates industrial wastewater-treatment systems. The MVR system will treat the plant's waste streams, which contain hydraulic and die-casting fluids, producing better than 99.9% pure water that’s reusable in die-casting processes. It also recovers at least 65% oil by volume that can be sold for further refining and reuse. More information is available at houghtonintl.com.
