In certain industrial sectors such as mining, chemical, etc), wet via treatments are carried out under extreme conditions of temperature and pH, in which a large amount of water is used, and at a certain moment in the process it is necessary to separate the solid phase of the liquid phase. The objective is to guarantee the best conditions in this process:
- improve the industrial process
- reduce significantly the waste
- recycle the process water as much as possible
which allows us to reduce costs.
We should mention that, for many years, a maximum water consumption per unit of manufactured product has been allowed. Now, in recent years, this maximum has been reduced considerably, which gives us a clear idea of the importance of recovery and recycling.
