Chemtech provides Reverse Osmosis systems that are specifically tailored to your chemical requirements. Reverse Osmosis helps meet environmental goals and comply with minimizing water discharge regulations. Most systems recover between 50 and 90 % of the process rinse water. The Chemtech systems also provide the added benefit of adjusting the pH of the rinse water to minimize the fouling and premature failure of the membrane.
Deionizing units are the most economical means to recycle low dissolved solids rinse water. The cost to operate a deionizing unit is directly related to the concentration of dissolved material. A rinse containing very low total dissolvable solids (final chrome rinse in decorative plating) can be recycled using deionization for a significantly lower cost than evaporation or reverse osmosis. The chemicals present in the rinse, the required cleanliness level, and the concentration of ions will determine the right applications for deionization.
The original approach in meeting wastewater discharge limits was simple clarification of a pretreated
wastewater stream, where pH and Oxidation-Reduction Potential adjustments cause the precipitation of various metals within the waste stream. As discharge limits were tightened, more solids were added to the pretreatment regime to create heavier particles which allow for better clarification. Flocculant addition became necessary to create even larger particles. With ever tightened discharge parameters, media filters were placed after the clarifier as a polisher prior to discharge.
