Aluminum Can Wastewater Treatment

The manufacturing process for making aluminum cans utilizes a lot of water and produces a wastewater containing hazardous heavy metals, TSS, COD and oil & grease with very high pH. Duraflow tubular membrane filtration has been used successfully to treat this wastewater to meet stringent effluent discharge limits. This case history details the chemical treatment process, the membrane microfiltration process, solids removal and effluent quality.
