Key steel processing water treatment technologies

The key technologies from Veolia for steel processing water treatment include:

  • Clarification
    Makes use of Veolia Water Technologies-patented Actiflo™, Actiflo™ Turbo, Multiflo™ and Multiflo™ Trio.
  • Media filtration
    Used to remove remaining suspended particles and unsettled floc using a variety of drum, disk, gravity and pressurised filters.
  • Reverse osmosis
    Otherwise called membrane separation, Veolia uses a ‘family’ of membrane processes classified as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
  • Evaporation
    Classified with crystallisation, it is used in combination with other processes to establish a zero liquid effluent discharge plant
  • Crystallisation
    Categorised with evaporation, crystallisation is used to establish a zero liquid effluent discharge plant in combination with other processes.
  • ZLD (Zero liquid discharge)
    Known as the ‘Efficient Water Management Choice’, ZLD technology is an effective manner of managing a plant’s water requirements which promotes re-use, recycling and recovery of water from the process itself.
