This week marks the annual recognition of Earth Day. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day now includes events in more than 180 countries, and is day dedicated to promote civic engagement and awareness on critical environmental issues and initiatives.
As demand for fresh water grows around the world, and natural resources become increasingly limited, the need for companies to conserve water is extremely important.
John Crane offers a wide range of innovative solutions that increase process efficiency of rotating equipment while lowering costs. Our seal support systems are engineered to reduce contamination and our seals are designed to require little to no external flush water.
The high volumes and abrasiveness associated with wastewater and clean water management pose a significant challenge when it comes to designing the supporting equipment. Because the ratio of water to abrasive material from a single source can change frequently, every component has to be durable enough to withstand extreme abrasiveness and still perform reliably.
Our products provide cost-effective solutions that reduce energy consumption and increase the efficiency of equipment used in all types of clean water and wastewater applications, from filtration to chlorination—ultimately resulting in an uptick in water conservation and a decrease in energy usage.
When it comes to water and energy conservation, it’s important to remember that it’s our responsibility to use the resources we are given in a wise and responsible way. As every individual and entity across the world depends on water for livelihood and operation, we must learn how to use our limited supply of water efficiently and effectively. Keeping our water supply safe and viable will ensure the well-being for generations to come.
