To reduce the cost of introduction of its wastewater treatment systems, Kurita has been striving to improve the efficiency of treatment technologies and systems for treatment (software). However, except for some products, our tanks (hardware), which are the main components of the wastewater treatment systems, were custom-made concrete tanks which required on-site construction work. This made it difficult to reduce the cost of introduction of the systems.
The standard-type wastewater treatment system features unified specifications and drawings of its components, including the tower tanks. Its units, including pipes and wires, are assembled at the manufacturing plant before the system is delivered to the customer’s plant. This makes the on-site construction work extremely simple, involving only the allocating of individual units, connecting piping, and electrical wiring work. As a result, the period between the commencement of construction work and completion of test operation, which used to be about six months, has been shortened to around three months. At the same time, the cost for introducing the new wastewater treatment system is 40% less than the previous systems from Kurita.
