SHALE QUARRY PROCESS WATER

Pre-Study

Ongoing project involving a treatability study and the design to treat process water from a shale quarry process plant. The water holds very high levels of suspended sediments.

The results of the treatability stud showed over 95% reduction in turbidity (>2000 NTU before treatment) after chitosan flocculation followed by three hours sedimentation. The following laboratory analysis showed a reduction in suspended sediment from 6700 mg/l to <1 mg/l after BioMedia filtration.

TREATMENT RESULTS

TURBIDITY

  • UNTREATED WATER, TURBIDITY (<2000 NTU)
  • AFTER PASSIVE FLOCKING

SUSPENDED PARTICLES

  • SUSPENDED PARTICLES IN UNTREATED WATER (6700 mg/l)
  • AFTER PASSIVE FLOCKING (<1 mg/l)
