Wray and Nephew appoint Puresep to help
them reduce effluent and improve efficiencies
at their Jamaican winery
Dwight Bali, Head of Engineering at J Wray & Nephew UK, the distributor of the Appleton range of rums, knew the Jamaican based winery needed to improve efficiencies and productivity in its filtration process and reduce its waste disposal costs. Due to Puresep’s knowledge in the food and beverage industry, they were commissioned for the project.
Not only did the CrossFlow reduce the production time, but through dia-filtration, reduced the quantity of the waste, along with recovering a significant amount of the alcohol and chemicals in the waste stream. This meant the cost of waste disposal was reduced and the environmental impact lessened.
