Wastewater purification from heavy metal ions

Общие данные

Wastewater purification from heavy metal ions

Application of the technology implemented in the UKOS-PROM installation in the course of upgrading and reconstructing the existing treatment facilities, as well as in the constructing new neutralization stations, enables one to:

  • carry out sewage treatment of galvanic production with medium and high concentrations of heavy metal ions up to the required standards with separation or without separation of wastewater into categories;
  • partially abandon the use of chemical reagents or significantly reduce their consumption;
  • disinfect and stabilize purified water;
  • reduce the amount of reagents used, to lower salt content of purified water;
  • lower the amount of solid waste, which in composition, physicochemical and mechanical properties are suitable for further processing and disposal;
  • depending on the salt content of waste water entering treatment, reuse 50-90% of purified water in galvanic production without the need for additional equipment for its desalting;
  • Deploy water treatment equipment in a compact way, reduce the length of process pipelines, the number of pumps and fittings;
  • Reduce the material consumption and energy intensity of the process of wastewater treatment and processing of generated solid waste by 15-25%.

In its efficiency, technical and economic indicators the UKOS-PROM water treatment complex corresponds to the current world level.

Technical solutions used in technology and equipment are patented, and elements of "know-how" are provided for in them.

Application range

The UKOS-PROM block-modular water treatment complex is designed for cleaning the following categories of waste water:

  • production of printed circuit boards
  • effluents of galvanic production
  • effluents of metallurgical productions
  • circulating water from hydrofilters of painting chambers
  • leather production
  • chemical-pharmaceutical production
  • drainage water from landfills
  • circulating cooling water
  • oil and oil-containing effluents
  • paint and varnish production
  • other categories of industrial effluent when installing additional modules
