Latest filtration technology applied to fluid recovery in the metals industry

D. Hampton*, E. Brownlee, CRS Reprocessing Services, USA

The TUF Filtration system is comprised of cross-flow filtration modules that are designed for maximum flux rate and a high speed centrifuge to remove solids from the filtration concentrate. The system is capable of removing 70% of the Total Suspended Solids (TSS) in between the rolling mill roll changes and consistently delivers over 100 pounds of dry let down that can be disposed of easily...

This paper will detail the system configuration that was used to achieve the industry setting results, the performance of different cross flow membranes used in this system, the performance of the high speed centrifuge, the overall performance of the system including the performance of the distillation equipment and challenges in achieving these results...
