Technical Brief: Eliminating Soluble Heavy Metal Ions From Industrial Wastewater by Precipitation and Ultrafiltration

Download Introduction Today’s manufacturers should be keenly aware of the problems—and especially the penalties—associated with discharging industrial wastewater into sewage treatment systems. The removal of soluble heavy metal ions from wastewater is a common industrial treatment requirement in modern manufacturing.   Some of the processes that generate waste streams containing heavy metals are: Electroplating Electroless nickel plating Printed circuit board […]

Blog: Ultrafiltration and Precipitation: The Most Effective Methods for Removing Heavy Metals from Industrial Wastewater

Electroplating, electroless nickel plating, metal-forming operations, battery recycling and other such operations all generate wastewater containing soluble heavy metal ions. Ultrafiltration and precipitation are the most effective methods for removing these metal ions. Both help manufacturers avoid the costly consequences of non-treatment, that can include corrosion to systems, toxic pollutants passed into surface waters, sludge disposal, and more. Finding […]

Blog: Feasibility Study: Oil Emulsion and Rinse Water Waste Treatment with Vacuum Evaporation

Mechanical and surface treatment processes in the automotive, aviation, and appliances industries require large quantities of water and produce highly pollutant wastewater that cannot be discharged directly into the sewer without proper treatment. This requirement can easily increase a company’s operating costs. A feasibility study in each case for treatment of these wastes is recommended. This study was used for […]

Blog: Why Companies Should Care – Industrial Water & Wastewater Management

For World Water Day 2017, the United Nations put the focus on the importance of reducing and reusing wastewater. According to UN.org, more than 80% of all the wastewater from our homes, cities, industry and agriculture flows back into the ecosystem via lakes, rivers and other bodies of surface water, polluting the environment while losing valuable nutrients and other […]

Blog: Making Wastewater Compliance Part of a Profit Strategy

Modern manufacturing operations are constantly looking for ways to innovate and increase productivity. This means making the most efficient use of any resource essential to the process. These resources, which can be finite commodities whose prices can fluctuate dramatically each year, often can be the drivers for increasing unplanned expenses, lowering efficiency, and impacting annual profits. Water is considered an […]
