The process selected provides chemical and flow equalization, pH adjustment of the wastewater to a neutral range and wastewater filtration for removal of large solids prior to the steam stripping process.
A factor of 1.08 kg of [BOD.sub.5] per kilogram of methanol recovered [6] and a power application of 4.5 MJ/kg [BOD.sub.5] removed [17] were used to estimate the reduction in electrical power required for effluent treatment due to steam stripping of condensates.
This process eliminates the steam stripping step and greatly reduces the high recycle solvent purification costs.
Steam stripping is an effective technique for separating and concentrating the methanol/TRS for incineration.
Various chemical and crystallisation reactions as well as thermal and/or pressure treatments such as steam stripping and vacuum sterilisation are now being performed in Hosokawa Micron's Vrieco Nauta Vacuum Dryers.
This structure significantly improves the silica retention during the steam stripping operation.
Unlike traditional solution polymerization (which involves water-based coagulation, separation by steam stripping, and drying), the direct devolatilization process requires only two steps: continuous main evaporation of the solvent and unreacted monomer, and continuous final devolatilization of the elastomer.
The following technologies are covered in varying amounts of detail: distillation, evapouration, steam stripping, air stripping, liquid-liquid extraction, carbon adsorption, resin adsorption, wet air oxidation, supercritical fluid oxidation, ozonation and various combinations with photoxidation, chemical oxidation, chlorinolysis, biological treatment processes, incineration, thermal treatment, land disposal.
A combination of techniques is used by Bunge Foods, Bradley, Ill., to produce a line of products from which cholesterol is removed, using a patented technique that involves steam stripping away the cholesterol and blending oils of different fatty acid ratios.
Two processes were tried: steam stripping; advanced oxidation (AOP).
