Case Study For Apollo Cleaning Systems

Join the water revolution, unleashing efficiency with Apollo 

Cleaning System for the Industrial Filter Cleaning Sector.

How can Apollo Engineering help:

  • Reduce your wash time by 75%
  • Reduce your water consumption by 83%
  • Increase your Productivity by 200%

The correct equipment and chemical relationship is vital

for optimum performance.

Equipment and Chemical Relationship​

For years, Apollo Engineering has stood as a trusted supplier in providing cleaning equipment to the industrial filter cleaning sector. Industrial filter cleaning facilities often face the challenge of frequent and costly restarts of hot tanks and spray washers, resulting in downtime, reduced output, substantial disposal costs, and excessive water consumption for customers.

Apollo Engineering’s mission has been to demonstrate that the right combination of equipment and chemical technology can significantly reduce the need for chemical disposal, effectively increasing production while reducing water consumption.​

Challenge​

Challenges associated with Industrial Filter Cleaning:

  • High-water consumption
  • High chemical usage
  • Frequent costly downtime due to tank pump out/clean out of the machines and the inefficiency of the existing cleaning process on site

 

Apollo endeavoured to optimise the process, creating a water-efficient and streamlined cleaning system. This system integrates Apollo Hot Tank technology and specialised chemical solutions available from Apollo Engineering.

Trial Solution

In response to the challenges, Apollo Engineering proposed a trial of our small AT800 hot tank equipped with our centrifugal filtration system and recommended Apollo EziWash chemical.​​

Our innovative approach aimed to:​

  • Reduce the frequency of tank dumping ​
  • Reduce chemical consumption​
  • Reduce water consumption ​
  • Enhance overall efficiency in ​
    the cleaning process​
hot tanks

Trial Result

During the trial, our small AT800 hot tank with centrifugal filtration and EziWash demonstrated remarkable results.

Initial Trial Results:

  • Significant reduction in the frequency of tank restarting, over 3 weeks without restarting for exceptional savings in disposal costs​
  • Considerable increase in cleaning performance which improved efficiency on site
  • Substantial reduction in water & chemical usage

Equipment and Chemical Technology Relationship​

The synergy between equipment and chemical technology is crucial for optimal cleaning solutions tailored to industry requirements.

  • The larger capacity platform, tripling the filter capacity per batch. This strategic upgrade resulted in a significant threefold increase in cleaning performance per hour, showcasing the effectiveness of the Apollo Hot Tank in optimising operational efficiency.
  • Apollo’s EziWash chemical and advanced filtration system were instrumental in expanding platform capacity by effectively managing elevated contamination levels per batch. Notably, a larger platform alone would not have achieved comparable results.

Targeted Results

  • Reduced Filter Wash Time: The new system enabled a reduction to the wash time by an impressive 75%, enhancing overall operational efficiency.​
  •  
  • Reduced Water Consumption: Monthly water consumption was significantly reduced by 83%. This not only translates to enhanced operational efficiency but also carries a substantial environmental benefit by conserving a significant volume of water and reducing the ecological impact associated with water consumption.​
 
  • Increased Production: With the streamlined cleaning process and reduced downtime, there was a 200% increase in production output, contributing to enhanced overall productivity.

Downstream Results

The outstanding performance of Apollo Hot Tanks with Apollo EziWash has triggered positive ripple effects, including:

Cleaner Running Facility: The overall cleanliness of the facility has improved due to our system removing maximum contamination from the filters and not transferring it to the next stage.

Increased Efficiency for Spray Washers: The excellent cleaning capabilities of our system result in cleaner running spray washers, contributing to a more efficient and overall improved cleaning process with fewer tank restarts required. EziWash can also be used in the Spray Washers.

Resource Optimisation: The Apollo System enable resource optimisation by streamlining the cleaning process, reducing water consumption, and minimising chemical usage. This not only enhances operational efficiency but also aligns with sustainable resource management.

Energy-Efficient Design: The incorporation of heating timers and industry-leading design in the Apollo Hot Tank range not only enhances performance but also reduces energy consumption, contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly operation.

Sodium Hydroxide Elimination: The superior cleaning power of Apollo Hot Tanks with Apollo EziWash have removed the need to use Sodium Hydroxide chemicals on site, promoting a safer and more environmentally friendly workshop.
