Some effluent wastewater has a high concentration of salt. These are often difficult to treat and their management is complicated and can be very costly.
Brine wastewaters are generated by a number of industries, for example in the food industry, where Brine is used as a preservative such as on meats. Brine Wastewater is also a common problem in heavy industries such as Oil, Gas and Power Generation, where Brine Water is used as a Coolant, however the Brine Water can then pick up contaminants during the process and must be treated before being discharged.
Therefore, although the main objective of Brine treatment is to separate out the dissolved salt ions (Sodium (Na)) from the wastewater. Due to the source of some of the Brine wastewater, additional treatments might be necessary to assist in the removal of other contaminants, such as metals, and other water hardness salt ions such as Calcium (Ca2).
Industries where Condorchem Envitech have successfully assisted clients include:
As with all systems that Condorchem Envitech build, we work with the client to fully optimise the system, to ensure that the best cost effective solution is provided.
Some of the technologies that Condorchem Envitech have installed include:
Within the above systems, additional treatments can be added to split out other contaminants. The objective of this is to not only produce a potentially high quality distillate water, but also ensure that the dried Brine might also be used, rather than having to be simply disposed of. Condorchem Envitech can provide systems to achieve this such as concentration units.
