Ardnamurchan Estates own and manage a significant proportion of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula on the west coast of Scotland. Activities include tourism, cattle and sheep farming, sport fishing, deer hunting, forestry and distillery.
Pot Ale is a waste product from the whisky distilling process and is the residue left in the bottom of the copper still after the distillation process is complete. The Clients needs to convert the Pot Ale to Pot Ale Syrup and then use this as a feed for their cattle farm.
The Solution provided
Two units: EVALED RV F 15 and a EVALED PC R 2.
EVALED RV F is a range of mechanical vapor recompression evaporators designed to achieve the most reliable heat exchange with the minimum fouling and scaling.
EVALED PC R is a range of heat pump vacuum evaporators designed to treat liquids with a high content of dissolved solids at low temperature and able to manage a high level of fouling and scaling phenomena (viscous liquids, sediment presence).
The Solution achieved
The solution achieved the production of a Good quality Pot Ale Syrup thanks to a low energy solution and Perfect size of the equipment, suitable for the relatively small quantities of Pot Ale processed daily (traditionally, Pot Ale Syrup evaporators have only been installed in larger distilleries with a higher daily production of Pot Ale). At the same time the solution achieved an effective and automated cleaning system for the evaporators.
PFOA & PFOS have been overlooked as an environmental contaminant until recently. These compounds have been widely used in firefighting foams and consumer products for decades. Similarly to PCBs, PFOA & PFOS spread easily, do not break down, and can remain in water plumes indefinitely. With new regulations requiring treatment down to the parts per trillion range, effective treatment will be a growing concern in upcoming years.
H2K Technologies has treatment solutions Specific treatment approach will vary with concentration and individual site characteristics, but removal can generally be handled by a combination of activated carbon, ionic resin, and solids filtration. While carbon is often the most cost effective option, ionic resins are selective for PFOA/PFOS and can provide better removal when other organic loading is present. Our experienced team of engineers can review sampling data, model treatment performance, recommend treatment approach and estimate the media lifespan for your project. Our expertise will help you provide a custom turnkey solution to provide effective results for the lifespan of a project.

EVALED® Evaporators for pharmaceutical waste water.CASE STUDY
Capsule printing, pharmaceutical waste water.
EVALED PC F / Heat pump vacuum evaporators
The Client is a science-led global healthcare company, with 3 global businesses that research, develop and manufacture innovative pharmaceutical medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products.
In their Polish premises, they use a unique technology to print directly on capsules with a low energy laser. The Client aims to reduce the residue to incinerate and the relevant costs.
To achieve this goal, the solution provided consists of a PC F 4 evaporator with a distillate production capacity of 4 m3/day and a footprint of 3.2 m2.
EVALED PC F is a line of heat pump vacuum evaporators designed to treat liquids with a high content of dissolved solids while minimizing the fouling and scaling phenomena with low temperature evaporation.
