The Problem

 

After decommissioning an existing manufacturing facility in Perth where finishing of stainless water heater components were done, Rheem’s new manufacturing facility at Raydalmere was at the scrutiny of stricter environmental regulations for environmental discharge. Further, limited knowledge about the pickling process and high acid and waste costs were also challenges.

 

The Scanacon Solution

 

Guiding and advising the customer in all aspects of finishing line design to meet the challenges at Raydalmere, Scanacon went on to supply the equipment necessary to maintain the finishing process it’s optimum with minimal waste discharge.

 

The Result

 

Since 2006, the new manufacturing facility at Raydalmere received the approvals of the Paramatta NSW Municipal Authorities for continued environmental compliance. Scanacon equipment continues to deliver value by minimizing quality variations in the finishing process, with zero downtime.
