Filter press for plastic waste water recycling

Feb 07, 2021

Plastic products are already a part of our lives. While it brings convenience to people, it will produce a lot of plastic waste. But the good news is that plastic can be recycled. The recycling process is generally crushed, washed and granulated. A lot of waste water will be generated during the cleaning process. If it is discharged directly, it will not only waste water resources, but even pollute the environment. In fact, plastic waste water is easy to recycle.

The plastic wastewater mainly contains silt, so the treatment is relatively simple. Generally, after adding flocculant to settle, the effluent is very clear and can reach the standard of secondary utilization. In addition, it will contain certain organic matter and other suspended matter. Depending on the use of plastic products, the COD and SS values in the sewage will also vary greatly. In my country, the process of "grid + regulation + coagulation air flotation + AO + filtration + disinfection" is generally used for treatment.

Specifically, the sewage flows through the grille to remove large impurities before entering the regulating tank. Then, the effluent flows into the air flotation tank while adding coagulant. Agglomerate the suspended matter and colloids of small particles in the wastewater into larger particles and overflow. The effluent of the air flotation tank is further subjected to biological treatment to remove most of the organic matter, ammonia nitrogen and other substances, and then the mud water is separated in the secondary settling tank. Finally, the waste water is recycled through the plate and frame filter press.
