Problem:  An Engineered Powdered Coatings Manufacturer was generating high concentrations of silver precipitants in their process wastewater. The effluent discharge levels were not meeting their permit requirements.

Solution: BioprocessH2O provided a microPULSE Microfiltration (MF) system designed for filtration of silver precipitant from the wastewater. The MF system for Phase 1 consists of one membrane skid containing 24 PVDF Cross-Flow Tubular Microfilter (MF) Membrane Modules. Phase 2 and Phase 3 consists of an additional MF membrane system in each phase. The MF membrane filtration system was selected to separate and concentrate metal precipitant from the water. Due to the superior strength of the membrane system, it allows for higher operating and backwash pressure to remove the solids and meet the effluent discharge requirements.

Status/Results: BioprocessH2O’s MicroPULSE MF System is very efficient and has exceptional chemical resistance. The MF system allows Technic to remove the silver precipitant from the wastewater and provide a high quality feed stream to a reverse osmosis system for water reuse.
