GLRPPR Sector Resource: BOC Edwards - Enclosed Automated Wash System

Title:
BOC Edwards - Enclosed Automated Wash System

Abstract:
To improve quality of service and environmental, health and safety performance, BOC Edwards installed an enclosed, automated wash system and closed-loop wastewater treatment unit at its pump-remanufacturing center in Wilmington, MA. The new system recycles nearly 100% of the process water used to clean pump components and decreases waste sludge by approximately 80% compared to previous operations.
