Optimizing Filtration To Reduce RO Fouling By Chemtrac, Inc.
A large utility in the southeastern U.S. originally installed RO units in 1994 and experienced fouling problems since the first day they were put online. The RO units would require weekly cleanings, sometimes after just three or four days of operation. What could be done to help the new plant resolve their RO fouling problem?
Reducing Iron Content In Coal Mine Discharge By Otterbine Barebo, Inc.
Strict EPA regulations are enforced to ensure that any discharge from an active or reclaimed mine site meets specific standards as it is released into native rivers and streams. Compliance is met and maintained by using a series of dipping ponds to catch the runoff and treat the coal mine discharge (CMD) with caustic (aqueous sodium hydroxide) that is used to neutralize the acidic nature of CMD so that heavy metals like iron can settle out. But sometimes the plan or chemistry just isn't enough.

After an activated carbon's adsorptive capacity has been exhausted it can be returned to Calgon Carbon for thermal reactivation. In the reactivation process, the spent activated carbon is heated in furnaces devoid of oxygen, using steam as a selective oxidant.
