    Owner/Manager - , Cucumber Facility, Ontario

Read the complete success story

Growing operation at a leading Ontario hydroponic English cucumber farm was held back by the hardness in its groundwater source.

This leading hydroponic farm wanted to reduce energy costs, conserve water, comply with very strict discharge regulations and recycle hydroponic feed water for reuse.

Installation of a Kontek RoKon Reverse Osmosis system with primary and secondary ROKON treatment for source water purification, wastewater treatment and recycling, and boiler source water purification.

The client has benefited from exceedingly high recovery rates and ongoing low operating, repair and maintenance costs. After four years of continuous use, their system’s membranes still appear untouched and consistently regenerate to 100% performance. This benefit alone has saved the customer thousands of dollars in membrane replacement and installation.

Based on the RoKon's exceptional performance, the customer is currently looking at the ConRec Liquid Crystallizer. Adding this component would be the customer’s final step towards gaining Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) certification.

Based on the success at this facility, the client has asked Kontek to help make their manufacturing facilities around the world ZLD locations. Kontek's team is currently determining which processes will yield the best results for each facility, taking the client one step closer to their accomplishing their business goals.
