Oil Recycling - Case Study
The problem: Waste oil recycling contributes very much to climate protection through (CO2) energy saving. Compared to the production of base oil the re-refining of waste oil uses 34 % less resources. In the sixties the German government was subsidising the re-refining of waste oil. Because of that the use of waste oil as a fuel was neglected. The used oil re-refining is the process of restoring used oil to new oil by removing chemical impurities, heavy metals and dirt . Used industrial and automotive oil is...
Using a Walnut Shell Filter as an RO Protection Filter
The purity of boiler feed water can be a critical part of the manufacturing process. This water needs to be free from contaminants in order for the boiler to operate correctly, without frequent shutdown for maintenance. For this reason, a membrane filtration train is frequently used. Unfortunately, the exposure of plant water to the manufacturing process means that the feed water can be contaminated with both high levels of oils and solid material. Frequently, the membrane filtration will need an upstream filter,...
Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?
Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency and/or cutting operational costs. Once installed, MF/UF systems are generally inexpensive to run, demanding minimal energy, with maintenance...

99% of Oil from Leaking tanks remediated - Case study
Spills and leaks from domestic and commercial oil tanks are a very common occurrence, caused either by the refilling of tanks or as the result of leaks. Very often old metal tanks corrode and start leaking oil onto the ground around the tank. Also the tanks themselves become covered in dried hydrocarbons and become significantly discoloured, even black. Spilled oil can seep into the ground, damaging the concrete or contaminating the soilaround the tank., killing grass and plant life. If this leak is not dealt...
