Heavy Metals Wastewater Treatment System (Chrome Removal): Chromium is present in the wastewaters of a number of industries, including: stainless steel manufacturing, protective coatings on metal, magnetic tapes, chrome plating, tanneries, textile dyes production, pigments and paint production, production of cement, paper, rubber, etc. Chromium is typically precipitated in two steps: reduction and precipitation.
Countercurrent Decantation (CCD): Rock passes into a dump hopper and is then transferred to a vibrating grizzly screen. The oversized material is sent to a jaw crusher. The crushed product is combined with the grizzly undersize and the ore is conveyed to the coarse ore bin.
Since mankind`s early beginnings, mining, metallurgy and the subsequent processing of natural resources have evolved into one of the most significant industries. Known as `heavy-industry`, this branch plays an important economic role in most countries. The scope of applications for CTP systems ranges from the mining of natural resources (e.g. bauxite and gold-ore mining), through the production of acetylene gas from coal and calcium carbonate, to the aluminium and steel industry and their foundries.
REMOTOX® is a calcium polysulfide based liquid that consists of multiple sulfur compounds, which strongly bond to heavy metals in water. The metal sulfides formed have a very low solubility and persist as stable solids, which allows for a more environmentally sound disposal.

Metals processing industries employ large, critical assets, the reliability of which is absolutely essential to their business model. An undetected failure of a piece of processing equipment such as a rolling mill gearbox, or a 1000 ton extruder press not only involves the cost of equipment repair and line downtime, but the product quality may be severely impacted. Today more than ever, there is also less redundancy. Oil analysis is a critical aspect of a reliability based maintenance program, and for...
Effective cleaning of machined or formed parts is a key step in all manufacturing processes. At IPC, we understand for a surface to be successfully plated or painted, it must first be free of contaminants. Our cleaners remove dirt, cutting oil, metal fines, flux, and other particulates from stamped metal and precision parts without the hazards associated with solvents. An economical 1-2% concentration in water is effective for most cleaning applications. Our cleaners are also proven in removing soils from filter...
The mining industry relies on Calgon Carbon’s Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) to recover gold and other precious metals. Calgon Carbon’s ISEP® Technology is used to recover precious, rare earth and base metals, uranium, copper, nickel and zinc from ore, waste and reclaim streams. Our high-quality activated carbons have been developed and successfully proven to maximize efficiency by reducing the loss of precious metals and the consumption of carbon in three precious metal extraction techniques: Carbon-in-Leach...
The surface treatment and metal finishing industry covers a large variety of activities whose purpose is to treat metal surfaces, protect them from corrosion, enhance their appearances with metallic coatings, or improve their resistance to erosion or wear. Processes include electroplating (nickel-chrome plating, zinc plating, brass plating, hard chrome plating, silver plating, etc.), chromating or passivation, anodising, phosphating, metal pickling, etching, chemical surface treatment, hot-dip galvanizing,...
Our laser profile measurement systems are used for non-contact scanning of the refractory lining in metallurgic reaction and transport vessels, like converters, EAFs, torpedo ladles and steel casting ladles, as well as in open die forging shops. The measurement values detected by laser scanners permit early and effective patching of defective locations and increase the lifetime of the refractory lining. Refractory costs are reduced at the same time operating safety is increased. The product assortment ranges from...
akvoFloat™ is a separation technology based on a proprietary flotation-filtration process. It has been designed for the treatment of industrial process water and wastewater in the most challenging operating conditions. Within the metalworking industry it is the most cost-effective water treatment technology for the reuse and discharge of metalworking fluids.
Wastewater and process water treatment in the metal industry. Industrial waste water or circuit water in the metal industry can be broken down into many comprehensive, subject-specific areas. AWAS has developed various methods of treatment technology for the metal industry in the last 30 years. Generally we accept any environmental challenge and like to respond to individual problems.
Why risk EPA fines and prison terms when you can convert the heavy metal ions in your plating rinse water stream into marketable metal oxides. The metal oxides are hydrophobic and dewater well. Metal oxides can be sold as raw components for new products.
From concept to market, IHS delivers unrivaled expertise and strategic insight to the global oil and gas industry. For decades, EHS and sustainability professionals at IHS have served all kinds and sizes of organizations, worldwide. We pioneered the development of many sustainability information management solutions and continue to lead the way with new innovations.
Quality control of the various metal industry processes. Metal forms an essential material in modern manufacturing, metal products being used everywhere. Using ED-XRF allows to measure a wide range of elements and concentrations - C(6)-Fm(100) - without the need for sample preparations (heating or destroying the sample). Samples can be measured in the form of loose powders or pressed into pellets and ready for measurement within seconds.
For 60 years Shamokin has supplied quality carbon and graphite products for numerous hot metals and industrial applications. Shamokin’s major focus is on the Hot Metals Industry. From Shamokin’s inception Steel Mills, and Foundry Products seemed most logical because they are located directly in the center of the Anthracite Coal Region. Anthracite provides the cleanest and lowest sulfur injection carbon for steel plants.
