Fibremakers is part of Godfrey Hirst Carpets, Australasia’s largest carpet manufacturer, and specialise in the manufacture of carpet fibres.
Humidity control is critical to their processes to ensure the fibres are wound correctly and aren’t fraying. For industrial humidity control systems clean water is vital to ensure micro stability, minimal corrosion, and to avoid blocking the very fine spray nozzles used to create a mist. Fibremakers asked BHF to develop a solution that would provide clean water for their new humidity control units.
A reverse osmosis system was configured to Fibremakers’ needs for flow rate, conductivity specification, pre-filtration, control settings, and chemical cleaning and dosing ability. Additional UV disinfection units were supplied to add another level of protection against microorganisms in the water. The skid-mounted system was delivered to the site and simply tied in to the appropriate pipework, drains, electrical, and signal wiring. Commissioning was completed by BHF Technologies internal engineers, and the system is being serviced by our specialist service technicians.
