  • Evaluating alternative aluminium sources for chloride removal from recycled cooling water

    Chloride is important in promoting corrosion in cooling water systems, which leads to reducing the efficiency of heat transfer surfaces and shortening equipment life. Ultra–high lime with aluminium process (UHLA) is a potential new technology that has the ability to remove chloride and sulfate from recycled cooling water in addition to removing the majority of scale–forming compounds. The purpose ...

  • Case study - Filtration for Alcan (France) swarf recovery at an aluminium billet plant

    In 1998 this Glosfume ceramic filter system was originally installed at British Aluminium plant in the UK to filter oily fumes from an induction furnace smelting oily swarf recovered from billet sawing. The filter is injected with 2C talc before being recycled back to the inlet ducting. At a pre-set time, the talc is discharged to a collection drum and the cycle is repeated. During 2006 British ...

  • Optimal heat-reversible snap joints for frame-panel assembly in aluminium space frame automotive bodies

    This paper presents a method for designing heat-reversible snap joints, locator-snap systems that detach non-destructively by heating a certain location of parts. It is expected to dramatically improve the recyclability of aluminium space frame (ASF) bodies by enabling clean separation of frames and body panels. Extending our previous work on the sequential design of the locators and heating area ...

  • A promising approach of reject water treatment using a tidal flow constructed wetland system employing alum sludge as main substrate

    This study examined a novel reuse of alum sludge, an inescapable by-product of drinking water treatment process when aluminium salt is added as a coagulant, as the main medium in a laboratory-scale multi-stage constructed wetland (CW) system for reject water treatment. Such reject water is a main concern in municipal wastewater treatment plant (MWWTP) for increasing the organic and nutrient ...
