A prominent steel coke manufacturer in Detroit reached out to JNE Environmental for assistance. Their dissolved air treatment system was not capable of floating their sludge waste and was performing well below acceptable standards. JNE proposed a new, properly engineered recycled air stream (RAS) system to deliver sufficient dissolved air into their chemically treated waste stream.
JNE Environmental has designed, built in-house, and shipped Fluoride batch treatment and pH correction systems to an ultrapure chemical manufacturer in Reno, Nevada. The fluoride treatment system is comprised of an incoming equalization tank, a specialized cone-bottom reaction tank, sludge waste holding tank, and a discharge effluent equalization tank to allow for safe discharge into the sewer system.
JNE Environmental has developed a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly pH correction solution — using the same principles as carbonated soda. This process can achieve the desired pH correction without the use of expensive plastics, dangerous industrial acids, or specialized protective equipment, and does not result in the addition of Chlorides or Sulfates.
JNE Environmental has a lot of history and experience with fluoride removal techniques from wastewater in the automotive sector; however, the wastewater from this particular client is unique in that their wastewater stream is actually ultrapure water. Ultrapure water poses a challenge because, at this purity, the water behaves like a solvent making it difficult to remove targeted impurities, such as fluoride.
