  • Research on the treatment of oily wastewater by coalescence technology

    Recently, oily wastewater treatment has become a hot research topic across the world. Among the common methods for oily wastewater treatment, coalescence is one of the most promising technologies because of its high efficiency, easy operation, smaller land coverage, and lower investment and operational costs. In this research, a new type of ceramic filter material was chosen to investigate the ...

  • Coalescence and Size Distribution Characteristics of Oil Droplets Attached on Flocs After Coagulation

    Abstract  The coalescence characteristics of oil droplets which are attached on flocs after coagulation is different from coalescence of droplets which are suspended in emulsions. The droplets attached on flocs are stationary and do not collide as those in emulsions. Objectives of this study were to investigate the change in size distribution of oil droplets that were attached on flocs ...


  • Oil-Water Separator with New Coalescing Media Handles High Load Stormwater at HydroElectric Powerplant to Yield Zero Oil Discharge

    Background Removal of oil from water before the water is discharged into a river or other body of water is an important environmental goal. In order to accomplish this, a major hydropower producer in the southern United States contracted with HydroQuip, Inc.* for the supply of a state of the art oil/water separator. The power plant had several goals, but the most important was that in ...

  • Oil droplets and solid particles removal using circular separator with inclined coalescence mediums: comparison between co-current and counter-current flow

    This research investigated the effects of co- and counter-current flow patterns on oil-water-solid separation efficiencies of a circular separator with inclined coalescence mediums. Oil-water-solid separations were tested at different influent concentrations and flowrates. Removal efficiencies increased as influent flowrate decreased, and their correlationship can be represented by power ...

  • Kimre Inc. LIQUI-NOMIX oil-water separators

    Liquid - liquid mixtures of contaminant oils (or organic solvents) in water (or aqueous solvents) can be separated economically and efficiently with gravity settlers or decanters. To achieve high efficiency separations, the settling unit must include a coalescing stage for removal of small droplets of oil. Kimre Inc.'s LIQUI-NOMIX coalescers provide high efficiency polishing of liquid streams and ...

  • Investigation of the effect of viscosity on slug flow in airlift tubular membranes in search of a sludge surrogate

    The behaviour of three different liquid-gas slug flows (water, carboxymethyl cellulose and activated sludge) in a vertical tube was studied using a high speed camera (HSC). Experiments were performed using different flow rates and two tube diameters (6.3 and 9.9 mm). The observed difference in behaviour of the ascending gas slugs can be explained by the difference in viscosity of the fluids ...

  • A novel application of modified bamboo charcoal to treat oil-containing wastewater and its modified mechanism

    Three conventional coalescence filters including walnut shells (WS), polystyrene resin particles (PR), and quartz sand (QS) were compared with bamboo charcoal (BC) to treat oily wastewater in a coalescence system process. The results showed the order of oil removal efficiency was QS>BC>WS>PR. To improve the oil removal efficiency of BC further, six types of modified BC were ...

  • Basics of Mist Elimination

    Mist eliminators have evolved over the years from packed bed types to knitted mesh mist collectors. Knitted mesh mist eliminators achieve much greater efficiency than the packed bed types where dumped packing is used as a collection device and impingement types where wave-like plates are used to collect mist. This presentation will discuss the basic concepts of mist elimination, whether the ...

  • Groundwater pump & treat and SIPEX skimmimg system

    GRS has supplied and installed a system for the abstraction of free-phase floating creosote contamination. The system comprises frequency controlled submersible pumps for precise hydraulic control and our motorised interface tracking system which, due to large local water table fluctuations, was modified to provide a product/water interface tracking range of 5m.Abstracted groundwater is pumped to ...


  • Highland Tank 50,000 Gallon Oil/Water Separator installed at Con Ed Mott Haven Power Distribution Center

    Before the Brooklyn Bridge spanned the East River, before the Statue of Liberty first graced New York Harbor, and before skyscrapers rose above New York City's streets, the utility companies that would eventually become Con Edison were already building the energy infrastructure needed to fuel and sustain the city's growth. Today, Con Edison operates one of the largest and most complex — yet ...

  • Improved Effluent Treatment Systems: Australian National Railways

      An environmental audit of Australian National Railways' facilities in various States identified a serious problem with the performance of wastewater and effluent treatment systems at several sites. Implementation of cleaner production measures has resulted in improved environmental performance and cleaning efficiencies at reduced operational cost. Background In late 1995, ...


  • Seedless synthesis of gold nanorods employing isopropyl radicals generated using gamma radiolysis technique

    The one step synthesis of short aspect ratio gold nanorods using gamma radiation method by incorporating cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) as a directing agent is reported in this communication. In present method of synthesis, isopropyl radical is selectively generated in the system by carrying out radiolysis of aqueous solution containing 2.75 × 10−2 mol dm−3 of acetone, ...

  • Water security for Kuwait: assessing the feasibility of water imports from Iran

    According to a recent paper by Schwartz and Ibaraki (2011), overuse and depletion of groundwater resources have caused the extinction of whole civilisations. Water–scarce countries seek additional supplies through a variety of methods such as conservation, drilling additional wells, building desalination plants and importing water. Kuwait, where surface water is totally absent, has aquifers that ...

  • Degradation of organic dye using zero-valent iron prepared from by-product of pickling line

    In this study, zero-valent iron (ZVI) was produced using iron oxide that is a by-product of a pickling line at a steel works. The reaction activity of the produced ZVI was evaluated through a series of decomposition experiments of Orange II aqueous solution. The size of ZVI particles increased with reduction temperature due to coalescence. Correspondingly, the specific surface area of ZVI ...

  • 2005 Benchmark Survey of Corporate Sustainability Reporting in Canada

    Gravimetric and chemical treatment with land-farm application discharge had significant design shortcomings during routine process upsets, becoming under-sized as production increased, or as heavy rainfall resulted in uncontrolled storm runoff of the wastewater. API O/W/S technology certainly can’t be expected to be deployed effectively for remote oil and gas fields or offshore sites produced ...
