  • Caustic Recovery Using Membrane Filtration

    Abstract Food and beverage processors that use dilute caustic solutions for cleaning process equipment have shown increased interest in recovering the used caustic. The primary reason is that the price of caustic has increased significantly in the past year or so. Membrane filtration technology can be used to remove suspended solids (clarify with microfiltration) and/or dissolved ...

  • Clarifiers-No, Filtration-Yes: A Case Study

    Problem Twenty miles southeast of Coos Bay, Oregon situated at the conjunction of the North and South Forks of the Coquille River lays the town of Myrtle Point. Just five years ago this community of 2670 residents was facing a large potable water problem with an even larger price tag. The town feeds its water treatment plant from the North Fork Coquille River. Prior to the 1990s the water ...

  • Impact of Corrosion on Electronic Equipment

    Corrosion is the destruction of metals through reaction with compounds in their environment. It is a natural process because compounds such as oxides, sulphides and chlorides are formed and these are stabler than pure metals. Electronic circuits and components are omnipresent in our environment. Until recently, the thousands of soldered joints that an electronic circuit contains were ...

  • Case study - Organic particulate filtration

    Overview A food products company that mixes various types of waxes and other components to make the base for chewing gums was faced with the issue of cleaning up a slightly odorous, visible emission being exhausted from two of their process lines. The components of the emission were hot particles of chewing gum and some volatile organic compounds (VOC's). The particles would quickly clog ...

  • Nan H2O filtration Drinking Water Production – Membrane Filtration Municipality of Lac - Bouchette

    Located in Lac-Saint-Jean, Quebec, Lac-Bouchette is a municipality of 1,400 inhabitants. For its supply in drinking water, the Roche Ltd Consulting Group recommended the municipality to call on H2O Innovation’s services. This, following a pilot study executed on the water of the Ouiatchouan lake that has been carried out from May till October 2003. The nanofiltration treatment system called ...

  • Seven Maintenance Considerations for Stormwater Filtration Systems

    All stormwater BMP’s will require maintenance at some time or time interval. Long-term maintenance costs and maintainability are very important considerations. Here are some other things you should consider when discussing maintenance of your stormwater filtration system. 1. Evaluate availability of maintenance contracting. It is the nature of filters to occlude with ...

  • Water filtration media: Talking about a revolution?

    Developments in any field of endeavour are nearly always evolutionary, not revolutionary. It is normal to expect advances in manufacturing equipment, process control and chemical science to facilitate product improvements. In the field of liquid filtration there is frustration at the seemingly unbreakable linkage that exists between increasing pressure drop and lower flow rates as gains are made ...

  • POE sediment filtration — your first line of defense

    Around the country, our aging water delivery infrastructure is coated with sediment and scale from a century or more of buildup. Those same tuberculated pipes are constantly challenged by daily tie-ins, repairs, flow tests and fire hydrant use in most cities and towns. The result is that drinking water that left the municipal treatment plant at top quality arrives in users’ glasses — or in their ...

  • Reverse osmosis followed by activated carbon filtration for efficient removal of organic micropollutants from river bank filtrate

    Drinking water utilities in Europe are faced with a growing presence of organic micropollutants in their water sources. The aim of this research was to assess the robustness of a drinking water treatment plant equipped with reverse osmosis and subsequent activated carbon filtration for the removal of these pollutants. The total removal efficiency of 47 organic micropollutants was investigated. ...
