Tri-Tech to aid ZLD status for Mexican steelworks

Beijing based Tri-Tech Holdings announced on 27 March 2012 the award of a contract to provide a preconcentrator mechanical vapour compression (MVC) evaporator system and final MVC concentrator for a Mexican steel plant.

The US$ 3.63 million contract, for a plant in Monterrey, was placed by Ambbio, which is providing other water-processing equipment like reverse-osmosis and ultrafilitration systems to the plant.

The concentrator unit will produced pure distillate from all the treated water from the RO units for reuse as process water and also concentrate the reject water. The evaporator units will eliminate the discharge of any liquid from the steel plant.

Tri-Tech US will provide design, engineering, fabrication, supervision of installation, commissioning, performance testing and on-site training services. The complete unit should be delivered by early April 2013.
