Merseyside-based company sign £120,000 filtration contract

A Merseyside-based company has signed a £120,000 contract to provide a water filtration system to be used in the paper recycling process.

Industrial Purification Systems (IPS) will install the advanced media filtration system at Billerud Beetham’s Cumbria paper mill to be used in the production of recycled packaging.

IPS managing director Steve Cupples said: “This advanced media filtration has been specially developed for use in all types of water filtration systems, including intake waters from rivers, lakes and canals and is particularly effective in the removal of algae and other organic material often found in raw water supplies.”

The system will allow the company to use 200,000 litres of river water per hour in the production of packaging material for the food and healthcare markets.

Billerud Beetham project engineer Matthew Bradbury said: “By utilising river water we will significantly reduce our demands on the more expensive mains water supply. This will both reduce our operational costs and significantly reduce any impact on the environment.”

IPS will work in co-operation with their specialist paper industry distributor Premier Filtration to deliver the system.
