  • Quick Clean-Up New Process Turns Decades Into Hours For Mining-Water Purification
    global regions where water is scarce I think the ability to save water is going to be really big especially when you re talking about China and other parts of the world said Mark Orazem a distinguished professor of chemical engineering in UF s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering His team s idea has attracted the attention of the Minnesota based Mosaic Company which produces phosphate and potash for fertilizer and operates four phosphate mines in Central Florida We value the longstanding partnership that we have with University of Florida It s important for us to continually seek research that improves efficiencies of our processes Said Paul Kucera senior engineer advisor in research and development with Mosaic Mining operations use water for mineral processing dust suppression and slurry transport When they re finished with it the water holds particles of mineral byproducts known in the phosphate mining business as clay effluent In the case of phosphate mines that are so common in Florida the clay effluent has the consistency of milk It looks like a solid but if you throw a stone into it it ll splash he said That water is pumped into enormous settling ponds some are as large as a mile square with a depth of about 40 feet where the particles can sink to the bottom Florida alone is home to more than 150 square miles of such ponds an area that would cover about half of New York City But it s a lengthy process because the particles are electrically charged Like charges repel and opposite charges attract The particles like charge causes them to repel each other which keeps them suspended in the water instead of sticking together and sinking to the bottom That means mining companies can re use the water only a bit at a time the part skimmed off the top Not only is the particle filled water useless the land those settling ponds occupy is a valuable asset that could be used for other purposes Ideas for speeding up that process go back centuries In 1807 an early application of the battery invented by Volta in 1800 showed that clay particles moved in response to an electric field In the 1990s an electric field was used to separate clay and water in batches but that concept was deemed uneconomical Orazem s design is different because it allows a continuous feed of clay effluent into a separation system There upper and lower plates are used as electrodes An electrical potential difference is applied across the electrodes creating an electric field which causes the charged particles to move toward the bottom where they form a wet solid called a cake In the cake dewatering zone the particles can t move so the water is forced to the top The cake can then be used to fill the holes created by the mining operation while the water is now clear enough to be reused to process mined phosphate ore Instead of having the

  • Hydro Launches Online Calculator That Counts The Cost Of Grit
    grit removal system using the guiding principles of Advanced Grit Management The simple to use calculator requires input of a small number of values to generate within minutes an estimate of the annual and lifecycle savings that could be made by removing more grit at the headworks Keith Hutchings Group Product Manager for Hydro International explains Our experience of working with wastewater treatment plants in North America and around the world has taught us that operators are settling for very low percentage rates of grit removal efficiency typically removing only 30 50 of incoming grit The Advanced Grit Management philosophy is based on removing between 85 95 of all grit entering the plant Based on this target the system can predict the estimated improvements to operating efficiency that result from removing much greater volumes of grit before they clog tanks basins and channels and abrade downstream process equipment Having set the operating plant capacity and the preferred equipment lifetime cost into the system users can input estimated or known costs of their downstream plant maintenance activities These include the periodic cleanout of grit basins aeration basins or anaerobic digester tanks for example as well as replacement and refurbishment costs for equipment such as pumps centrifuges or membranes Where operators are unable to provide values averages are suggested based on actual costs from operating plants in the USA Users can then save or print a detailed analysis of the results of the calculation Every plant is different so the calculator is no substitute for a detailed site assessment of real world grit concentration and behavior and actual sampling of incoming effluent prior to a detailed plant design adds Hutchings However our research shows that poor grit removal is a major source of avoidable process inefficiency operating maintenance and replacement costs We
