Dulux Group Water Treatment Installation

Customer: Dulux Group

Completion Date: 31/08/2011

Location: Rocklea, Queensland

Specifications & Features:

The plant uses Ultra‐Filtration and Reverse Osmosis technology to treat 200KL/Day. The plant was installed and commissioned in August 2011.


Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment have designed and installed a demineralisation plant comprising of an Ultra‐Filtration and Reverse Osmosis system for the Dulux Group for use within the paint manufacturing plant.

With the Queensland State Government's SEQ Water Grid now in place Dulux is encountering fluctuations of conductivity in the feed water used in the paint process which is effecting the paint quality.

These spikes in conductivity have exceeded 800 uS/cm at times.

Although the water is used for process and not drinking it does effect the paint quality and thus a treatment plant to reduce excess conductivity was required to improve quality and reliability.
