Reactor-type plant for the treatment of cooling lubricants
This plant is designed for cleaning cooling lubricants (cutting fluids) from oil products using reagent treatment followed by filtration process. The plant produces purified water and low-hazardous sludge. * If a higher throughput is required, the company can develop a customized solution with several reactors or with vessels of a larger size.
|Plant throughput, m3 / day||Up to 100*|
|Occupied area, m2||70 to 150|
|Volume of separation reactor, m3||5 to 12|
|Rated power, kW||5 to 20|
|Rotation speed of the stirrer in the separation reactor, rpm||100|
|Tank material||Polyethylene, polypropylene, other materials on request|
The purification process starts with destabilization of the cutting fluid in the oxidation reactor by lowering its pH value with a solution of activator 4A (acidic). Then the destabilized emulsion is subsequently treated with working solutions of the coagulant Biomicrogel® BMG-P2, activator A1 (coagulant), and activator A6 (flocculant). These reagents are mixed using an agitator installed inside the reactor. The separation reactor consists of a metal crate and a plastic reservoir placed inside it with an installed paddle stirrer. The tank is made of materials that can be used in contact with various substances, including aggressive ones. As a result of dosing and mixing the reagents, oil products are bound and a poorly soluble sediment is formed, which, after settling, is pumped out for further utilization. The clarified water produced as a result of separation cooling lubricant in the reactor is then discharged or is used for further purification. The plant includes all the necessary technological equipment, piping for technological equipment with shut-off and control valves, as well as devices used for monitoring and automating technological processes. If necessary, the plant is completed with the following instrumentation: pH sensor, level sensor, phase separation sensor.
