Wastewater purification from galvanic production

Общие данные

Cleaning of electroplating waste: wastewater purification from galvanic plants

The UKOS-PROM block-modular water treatment complex (BMWC) is designed to purify galvanic drains and other categories of industrial wastewater.

Using the technology implemented in the installation to upgrade and reconstruct the existing treatment facilities or to construct new wastes neutralization stations enables one to:

  • carry out purification of waste water from galvanic plants with medium and high concentration of heavy metal ions up to the required standards with or without separation of wastewater into categories;
  • abandon partially the use of chemical reagents or reduce their consumption significantly;
  • reduce the salt content of purified water by reducing the amount of reagents used;
  • depending on salt content of the galvanic wastewater entering treatment, reuse 50-90% of the treated water in the production without involving any additional equipment to desalinate it;
  • disinfect and stabilize purified water;
  • reduce the amount of solid waste, which is suitable for further processing and disposal according to its composition, physicochemical and mechanical properties;
  • reduce material consumption and energy intensity of the process of purifying galvanic effluents and treating the generated solid waste by 15-25%;
  • deploy water treatment equipment in a compact way, reduce the length of technological pipelines, the number of pumps and fittings.

In terms of its efficiency, technical and economic indicators the BMWC corresponds to the world level. Technical solutions used in its technology and equipment are patented, and the elements of "know-how" are provided for.
