Heavy Metal Precipitation

POLY SEPAR® METALSORB ZT is a highly effective liquid complexing agent that compounds with nearly all solute heavy metals in industrial wastewater treatment.

POLY SEPAR® METALSORB ZT is successfully used in the following areas:

  • Metalworking, especially in the automotive industry
  • Metal finishing (galvanic treatment operations)
  • The glass and ceramics industry
  • Printers, tanneries
  • Cleanup of contaminated soils
  • Groundwater decontamination

POLY SEPAR® METALSORB ZT can be dosed stoichiometrically and undiluted within the entire pH range from 2 to 12.The theoretic requirement for
bivalent metal ions is 700 g / mol. The reaction time is 10 min. The insoluble salts resulting from the reaction form only micro-flocs.

Follow-up treatment with:

  • Adsorption agent (POLY SEPAR® AM types) or
  • Precipitant (POLY SEPAR® CFF types)

is then required to achieve efficient separation and to eliminate any remaining excess amounts from the water.

Adsorptionsmittel für Gleitschleifabwässer

With our new adsorbent POLY SEPAR® AM 24 we have developed a product which is perfectly suited for reducing heavy metals. This particular adsorbent finds special application in electroplating.

For polishing waste water, we recommend our POLY SEPAR® AM 25.

Adsorptionsmittel für Phospatierbäder

SEPAR® AM 26 is directed at the treatment of waste water from phosphatising baths. These particular adsorbents form very good flocs and can reduce the phophate conent to such an extent as to comply with the threshold values.

The following heavy metals can be reduce from galvanic waste waters:

  • Chromium
  • Copper
  • Nickel
  • Kobalt
  • Cobalt
  • or others
