New RO system brings extra benefits for GestampLlanelli-based Gestamp ( — a leading designer and manufacturer of metal automotive components — is benefitting from significant environmental and process improvements after a decision to invest in ‘reverse osmosis’ technology for its low-conductivity process water generation requirements.

As part of its vision to promote sustainable economic and social development, the company was primarily looking for a cleaner and more cost-effective water treatment process to replace an ageing chemically activated ion-exchange system.

It contacted Swansea-based filtration specialist Axium Process Ltd (axi to discuss the suitability
of reverse osmosis (RO) for the application and — after careful investigation — decided to purchase a standard Axium RO system.

Plant technician Simon White said: “We chose an Axium RO system because the technology is safe to operate, eliminates bulk chemical and disposal costs and does not present a toxic pollution hazard to the environment.

"After using the plant for a number of months, we are happy to report unexpected benefits such as enhanced paint finish resulting from improved water quality, as well as less down-time because the system requires minimal maintenance and has been programmed to self-clean.”

Designed for ease of operation and low maintenance, Axium’s standard RO systems primarily remove salts and particulates from a variety of water sources, providing a reliable source of high-quality water that can be used for many industrial and process applications.
