Kemplant’s novel and conventional effluent and waste water treatment technologies have been applied and operate in a cross section of various industries, including:
- Mining and Mineral beneficiation.
- Iron, Steel and Coke.
- Chemical and Petrochemical
- Pharmaceutical, Detergents, Pesticides and Paint
- Pulp and Paper
- Hazardous Waste sites
Technologies applied for the successful treatment of effluents and the recovery of water of varying quality to client’s requirements, are tailored specifically for the particular effluent or waste water being treated.
Solids contained in effluents are removed using conventional techniques such as agglomeration and gravity sedimentation (clarifiers, settlers), filtration (sand beds, cloth, disks, screens and other media) or mechanical separation (centrifuges).
Brines requiring the removal of dissolved components are processed using evaporation, crystallization, chemical reactive precipitation, neutralization and softening.
Water requiring polishing to specific contaminant quality standards or primary processing for further downstream treatment, is treated using ion-exchange, activated carbon absorption and adsorption, membrane processing (reverse osmosis, electro-dialysis), ultra-filtration, re-mineralisation and pH adjustment.
Effluents containing high levels of oils and greases generally emanating from steelworks, oil refineries, petrochemical plants and natural gas processing plants are treated using mechanical devices such as oil skimmers, API Separators, DAF, DGF, settling decantation or chemical sedimentation and coagulation, for further downstream solids/liquid separation processing and COD/BOD absorption or destruction
