Metal Finishing Applications
Metal finishing provides some of the most significant challenges and opportunities for ion exchange of all the potential uses. Ion exchange resins are used to deionize make up and dilution waters, to purify chemical solutions and to recycle rinse waters
ACM offers a complete line of ion exchange and adsorbent products for the metal finishing industry including separate bed and weak base resins for rinse recycle applications and mixed beds. The removal of heavy metal contaminants is also accomplished prior to waste discharge by use of various chelating resins including the iminodiacetate, aminophosphonic and picolylamine chelates.
ACM expert technical staff are able to provide computer modeling for most ion exchange possibilities and provide accurate projections for operating capacities and leakage for all commonly encountered contaminants, when provided with the appropriate feed water analysis.
All resins and other medias can be provided with exchange tanks and pre-loaded into tanks for convenience and rapid deployment. We also offer regeneration services for resins used in the metal finishing industries that may have come in contact with hazardous metals.
