Minneapolis Glass has added an IMMMES water filtration system, enabling it to recycle 100% of its processed water and improve operational efficiency and sustainability. Company officials say the addition follows Minneapolis Glass’ move to bring tempering in-house.

Officials say the IMMMES water filtration system features an underground trenching system that collects processing water throughout the facility. The underground reservoir agitates the water before a booster pump pulls water into a 10,000-pound holding tank.

A filter press then forces water away and dries water debris into cakes that are easier and less expensive to haul away. Grey and clean water are isolated and redistributed to various machines. Officials say no water goes down the drain, and almost no new water is needed because the only loss is from evaporation. They add that the cleaned water is purer than the original municipal water, protecting machines and reducing processing imperfections.
