Water Accesses

In leather manufacturing, the availability and/or access of water is crucial. Because the nature of the leather manufacturing needs and uses a lot of water for the production of processes like in washing, flashing and so on. Therefore, the access of water for ELICO is basically from the municipal supply in a holding sump. But since the volume required is insufficient of the operation, water is drawn from natural springs for the manufacturing purposes and additional water is also abstracted from on the river and held in second sump, then used for washing floors and machineries with in the tannery and effluent treatment plant. Hot water recovered from vacuum drying unit is also delivered to this sump.

There is only a cold water supply for chemical processing. This delivered in to 1 m3 feet tanks pleased above the drum axle level for gravity feet, after raising the temperature by direct stream injection. The temperature is checked using calibrating hand thermometers, and the volume for addition is measured using volume markers with in the drum.
