Unitop makes in roads into new markets

The company has ahas a patented coagulation technology that can remove the colour impurities such as starch and other dark colours and size impurities such as Starch, wax, oil from caustic so that the recovered caustic has improved properties.

An ISO 9001:2015 certified company, Unitop Aquacare is a trusted name in the field of caustic recovery plant and zero liquid discharge system with more than 550 clienteles worldwide and a number of repeated orders. The company is one of the leading engineering firms with four decades of experience in chemical recovery and Zero Liquid Discharge systems for design, manufacturing, supply, installations and services. Unitop Aquacare Ltd is promoted by S M Mondkar, a chemical engineering graduate from IIT Mumbai, having experience of over 55 years in the process engineering industry. The company is now run under the able engineer from Mumbai university.                                                                 

Speaking on the quality control and international certification, Ashish Mondkar in an interview with the ITJ, said, “Allour manufacturing set-ups are ISO 9001-2015 certified by DNV as well having fabricated equipment under stringent standard of consultants like EIL, L&T, AKER solutions, TCE, Jacobs etc. Our manufacturing setups are equipped with automated machinery to cater to our customer’s needs, ensuring quality. Our manufacturing system are approved/certified by international standard such as CE, SELO (China) NR 13 (South America) and ASME Section VIII. 0n manufacturing facilities and fabrication capabilities: Ashish said, “Our manufacturing unit is spread over 50,000 sq. ft. and located in Thane, a close suburb to Mumbai.  The fabrication, specialised QC and safety personnel are supported by skilled and semi-skilled labour enabling us to meet time bound deliveries and quality standards.  With a view to add to the growing demand of Zero Liquid Discharge across all industries we have recently expanded to new Unit over a sprawling 28000 m2 large area in Umbergaon Gujarat hardly 140 km from Mumbai. Both these units together have a manufacturing capacity of up to 15 Evaporations plants every month.”

Advanced technologies and automation

Unitop Aquacare designs tailor-made systems to suit individual customer’s need and the local condition like quality of water, environmental impacts, space constraints, operational conditions, etc. Solution include:

  • Total one-touch operation plant involving minimum manual intervention
  • MIS daily reports in real time or history charts or graphic
  • Plant analysis and troubleshooting module
  • Report alert on mobile or email
  • Remote-controlled operations
  • Mobile based service app, which helps customer to generate service call and to get solution faster.

Unitop Aquacare has an in-house developed programme for absolute tailor-made designs and ensuring optimum number of effects based on prevalent utility costs and its availability of the area. Customised designs ensure optimum operating and utility costs. Hot condensate is flashed in successive effects and the waste flash steam is used to preheat the weak lye resulting in major steam savings.

Market presence

Unitop Aquacare have made deep inroads in the European, Chinese, Turkish Bangladesh and Indonesia markets. In Turkey particularly, Unitop Aquacare’s plants are successfully working at Oztek Tekstil, Kipas Denim, Arta Denim, Palmiye Textile, JNR Mensucat, Gozde Boyahanesi, Norsel Textil. All these customers were either using European or Turkish Equipment’s due to service comfort or quality, however since they have used our system, they find it much more convenient for the application. Based on our presentation on steam saving they prepared to change the system to our CRP saving a lot of money due to lower operational cost, user friendly operation, reliability of performance and good local after sales service. In fact, not just Turkey but Bangladesh, China, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand has an over 70 per cent share of the market for CRP

Ashish further quoted, “We have got business from clients who were traditionally European machinery buyers and this was possible due to superior technological advancements & low utility costs.”  He adds, “We follow textile industry and our customers very closely. We identified that most of the textile are facing challenges to supply a constant higher pressure steam to any machine for that matter CRP. We have optimised our design to operate our CRP at low pressure keeping in mind interest and benefit of customer. We are always focused to design CRP it operates at low steam consumption and I proudly say that we are around 15 to 20 per cent lower than European competitor. We do it in an innovative way by washing steam condensate to generate steam which is a heat source for preheating the feed.”

“Traditionally European CRP generates a lot of hot water, which around 2.5 times the feed capacity but since now-a-days most of the processing machines have in-built heat recovery systems, so consumption of all the hot water may be practically impossible. We even found that customers are draining the hot water which eventually spoils the ETP parameter. For such situation we offer customer CRP with Adiabatic System in that case CRP will not generate excessive hot water,” added Ashish.

New product development

Ashish was happy to share information on company’s new product plan with us. He mentioned that Unitop Aquacare has a patented coagulation technology that can remove the colour impurities such as starch and other dark colours and size impurities such as Starch, wax, oil from caustic so that the recovered caustic has improved properties. Unitop Aquacare Ltd has now even started its Total Zero Liquid Discharge systems from Effluent Treatment Plants, Reverse Osmosis Systems to Evaporation and drying system to be able to recovery over 99% water and eventually offer client the salts in form of solid waste with hardly 10% moisture. This baggable salt can either be reused or taken to a solid waste disposal site. We are looking forward to support our customer to achieve the elusive Zero Liquid Discharge to be able to follow Pollution norms and help form a cleaner world.
