Industrial Water Copper Removal and Recovery - Water and Wastewater - Water Filtration and Separation
Pure copper is soft and malleable; a freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color. It is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, a building material, and a constituent of various metal alloys. Recycling is a major source of copper in the modern world. A combination of economic and regulatory factors are now at work to make metal recycle and water reuse very attractive.
- This recycle consists of a series of chemical, physical, and electrochemical processes.
- Methods have evolved and vary depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors.
- Ion exchange is a major step in the recovery / purification of metals.
- By using the ION-IX continuous counter-current ion exchange technology, the recovery / purification of metals is done in the most economical efficient way, which reflects its benefit also to the environment.
