Acid Recycling Units
| Target of the
The minimisation of industrial waste and the recovery and reuse of chemical resources is the most cost-effective way to abate pollution for many industries. The cost and liability associated with routine disposal have a major impact on operation.
A Formeco Serie AR unit allows the continuous regeneration of acid based washing baths, with evident advantages:
considerable save on raw materials provisioning,
The acids which are used in the industrial process are a blend of technical acid, 10-20% watered down.
The diffusion dialysis allows the passage of the acid across a membrane stack, discriminating it from the heavy metals and from the flow which forms the bath.
The technical acid, so purified, is reintroduced into the bath; the polluted flow will have to be disposed of. The cycle.
The polluted solution to be treated is pumped from the process bath or from the storage tank to the recovery unit, and flows into one of the two sectors which constitutes the membrane stack ; the other sector is crossed counter-current by a proportionate quantity of pure water.
The acid passes through the membrane producing a new clean solution, with characteristics similar to the original one.
