Hardness Removal from RO Brine in China
Clean TeQ Water provided the engineering, procurement and construction of a 2m3/h CIF® (Continuous Ionic Filtration) mobile treatment plant, which removes hardness from Reverse Osmosis (RO) brine. The pilot plant was finished in 2019 and put into operation.
The plant will be used at a coal to chemical plant in Inner Mongolia, China. It will remove hardness from brine from 1st stage RO so that it can be treated by 2nd stage RO, reducing brine volume and improving water recycling recycling efficiency. CIF® was chosen as the solution as direct softening can only reduce hardness a limited amount at a high chemical cost, and fixed bed ion exchanged required more expensive chemicals.
