Implementation of solution for separation of spent cutting tool lubricants introduced by the Biomicrogel Group is expected at Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant and Pervouralsky Novotrubny Works
The solution for separation of spent cutting tool lubricants (cutting oils) introduced by the Biomicrogel Group has been recognized as the best one among 280 Russian and overseas companies.
The team of Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant summarized results of industry acceleration program that targeted sourcing of the best available technologies capable of increasing effectiveness of the main and offline processes at fabrication of the tubulars and increasing the operational efficiency of the company.
During sampling the experts of Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant together with the city Water Utility conducted series of laboratory tests of spent cutting tool lubricants separation, and treated water obtained as a result of those tests was handed over to independent laboratories. The test records indicated sustainable result: residual concentration of petroleum products in water was less than 0.05 mg/l in all samples after treatment with Biomicrogel® BMG-P2 flocculant.
A contract was signed following obtained results of the test program. Scope of the Contract: The Biomicrogel Group shall design and start up a complex solution of spent cutting tool lubricants separation, integrating the Biomicrogel® BMG-P2 flocculant and the unit for its application on the premises of the Pervouralsky Novotrubny Works, which is one of the corporate bodies of the Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant Group.
Note that Biomicrogel® BMG-P2 flocculants have already been tested successfully at PJSC “Severstal”, “Izhora Pipe Mill”, NLMK.
Our solution is capable of obtaining required indicators of residual concentration of petroleum products in water even in the most complex industrial wastes, included but not limited to spent cutting tool lubricants. The challenge is that this waste contains petroleum product in a form of steady state emulsion, therefore its separation by application of standard approaches appears to be cumbersome, and in fact not possible in most of the cases.
Evaporation plants require too much electric
power, the filtering equipment gets jammed too quickly and demands too frequent
replacements of filtering elements, and the standard agents do not ensure
required treatment quality. We are happy that the team of Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling
Plant provided an opportunity for us to show our solution in action and gave a
high assessment of obtained results. We appreciate facilitation of the program
and are setting to work with our sleeves rolled up.
