A large Zinc / Chrome Plater Facility was having difficulty achieving their metals discharge limits and the Sewer District lowered the limits even further. The TrueBlue team targeted the concern areas and developed a strategy to solve this problem. A TrueBlue Pilot was conducted with outstanding results an allowed this large facility to exceed thier targets.
Installation of a TrueBlue 50 GPM System enabled the customer to exceed discharge limits, reduce waste treatment cost and recycle water.
Zinc was 3.95 coming out of the clarifier and reduced nearly 93% with TrueBlue. Addtional Analysis – Zinc was 3.95 coming out of the clarifier and reduced nearly 94% with TrueBlue. “Backwashing made a slight difference”.It is important to point out that the the most prominent metal in the Zinc Phosphate process (Zn) was reduced nearly 93%. This is a difficult achievement in any Waste Treat Scenario as Zinc is especially hard to remove
