Pilot unit of membrane extraction13 August 2015
The hollow fiber membrane contactor makes it possible to extract and concentrate metal ions and organic molecules by liquid-liquid extraction, or inorganic molecules like ammonia by liquid-gas-liquid extraction. The unity of CEPROCQ can treat 60 liters / hour of effluent. However, its capacity can be increased by using larger contactors. The basic treatment unit includes two tanks, two peristaltic pumps and one contactor, which can be assembled quickly on site to evaluate its potential.
