Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report

Abstract

B-Line manufactures metal supports and channels for cabling as well as racks and enclosures for cabling and telecommunications systems. Their production processes include milling, machining, welding, painting and electroplating metal as part of their production process. In 1994 ISTC Technical Assistance Program (TAP) engineers visited the facility and met Matt Bochantin, the plant's new facilities engineer. That initial meeting led to the implementation of an ultrafiltration membrane system to recover resources and recycle water so that it could be reused in the painting process.
