  • Separation

    Introduction: Ex situ separation can be performed by many processes. Gravity separation and sieving/physical separation are two well-developed processes that have long been primary methods for treating municipal wastewaters. Magnetic separation, on the other hand, is a much newer separation process that is still being tested. Gravity Separation Gravity ...

  • Not all oil water separators are created equal

    Efficiency is meaningless unless engineers and maintenance professionals are able to sustain it for a long periods of time. This webinar addresses three major questions: How do I prevent my company from incurring fines and citations? How do I increase the time between maintenance/cleaning schedules and stMl produce satisfactory effluent? How do I save my company money in regard ...

  • The application of flotation for the downstream separation of metal-loaded microorganisms

    The studied innovative wastewater treatment process involved the initial abstraction of heavy metal ions onto fungal or stalks biomass (biosorption), followed by the application of a typical flotation stage for the efficient downstream separation of metal-laden biosorbent particles. The ability of microorganisms to remove metal ions from dilute aqueous solutions is a well-known property. ...

  • Dyed viruses and metal particles for advanced separation studies

    Single nanometer sized particles are poorly retained by conventional water treatment methods and are hardly detectable in water samples. The particles present a separate class of pollutants and their transport and fate cannot be studied by tracking bacteria, turbidity, free dyes or ions. Dyed bacteriophages and gold nanoparticles are two novel tools that facilitate the studies of virus ...

  • Electrokinetic Separation

    Introduction The principle of electrokinetic remediation relies upon application of a low-intensity direct current through the soil between ceramic electrodes that are divided into a cathode array and an anode array. This mobilizes charged species, causing ions and water to move toward the electrodes. Metal ions, ammonium ions, and positively charged organic compounds move toward the cathode. ...

  • The Power to Separate

    Gravity separators are effective and economical tools used to process wastewater and stormwater by removing pollutants such as sediment, hydrocarbons and debris through the process of sedimentation or flotation. Most separators have few or no moving parts, are easy to maintain and have a successful history of use in many different industrial, commercial and residential applications. Specifying ...

  • Separation of metals and phosphorus from incinerated sewage sludge ash

    Microbial acidification of incinerated sewage sludge ash and dissolution of metals from the acidified ash were investigated using a semi-batch reactor at different solid retention times (SRTs). The average pH values ranged from 0.91 to 1.2 at SRTs longer than 10 days, whereas the reduction of SRT to 4 days resulted in an increase in the pH value to about 2. The dissolution efficiencies of Al, ...

  • The true value of magnetic separators and metal detectors in bulk handling

    Introduction The purpose of a bulk material handling may be to transport material from one of several locations to an ultimate destination or to process material such as ore in concentrating and smelting or handling materials for manufacturing. The handling of dry materials in loose bulk form involved the extensive use of static machinery such as belt conveyors, screw conveyors, and various ...

  • Explaining magnetic separators

    What is Magnetic Separation? Magnetic Separation is one of the most common and important physical separation techniques.  The basic concept of a Magnetic Separator is that magnetically susceptible particles or bodies are separated from non-magnetic particles.  However, the simplicity stops there.  To enable different levels of separation from a wide range materials, there ...

  • Separation of some heavy metal species from electroplating rinsing solutions by ion exchange resin

    A strongly basic anion exchange lewatit MP 600 resin was tested to separate metal species from electroplating rinsing wastewater. An azo resorcinol 4–(2–pyridylazo) dyestuff was used as a complexing agent. Adsorption isotherms were modelled in an ethanol/acetic acid/water media. The loaded resin is regenerated using 4 M HCl whereby the eluted metal species are recovered. Results revealed that ...

  • Recovery Of Metals Using Combustion

    Process industries generate a number of hazardous waste streams containing metals bound with organic components. These metals can be quite valuable if they can be separated from the organic components and recovered. Four projects are discussed. ...

  • Scrap Metal Recycling 1

    Integrated Engineers provided treatability services for the facility for three areas onsite: the oil water separator, tin baler effluent water, and aluminum shavings/cutting oil runoff. The facility processes and bales scrap metal for recycling. The three different waters were treated with Floccin J. Oil Separator The oil separator water is used to remove any free oil that is floating on top of ...

  • Sintered Metal Manufacturing 1

    This facility generates 2 waste streams from their metal sintering operations. The first waste stream comes from their cutting oil operations and rinse water. The wastewater is then stored in several tanks and allowed to partially separate with some of the floating oil skimmed off. The residual wastewater (3,000 gallons/week) is then hauled off site for disposal at $1.15/gallon. The treatability ...

  • The dangers of separating science and environment

    We need to figure out a better way to communicate science that balances technology and nature. Does the natural world have any relevance to modern science? Of course it does; but sometimes it seems like that’s not the case. This is a myth perpetuated directly and indirectly through media, policy decisions, academic disciplines, even some science engagement initiatives: ...

  • Source separation trends in the UK

    THE past 15 years have seen significant investment and development of the biowaste collection and treatment industry in the United Kingdom (UK), which has gone from virtually zero to an industry worth over £160 million (264.6 million USD). Driving this investment have been a number of regulatory and fiscal measures such as the first set of Landfill Directive targets due in 2010. Since 1999, the ...
