Sulphate Removal System (SRS)
Chemetics’ patented Sulphate Removal System (SRS®) provides a cost effective method of removing sulphate ion from liquid brine streams.
Within the SRS, a sulphate containing brine is pre-conditioned and then passed through Chemetics’ filtration elements to reject the sulphate, which is detrimental in many processes.
- A key application of the SRS is in chlorine plants, where it replaces traditional sulphate removal methods such as barium precipitation or brine purging.
- Dramatic operating cost reductions may be realized, either through complete elimination of the barium precipitation chemical or through recovery of valuable salt that would otherwise be purged.
- The system may also offer environmental benefits through reduced effluent volumes or elimination of the barium sulphate disposal issue.
- It may also improve electrolyzer power consumption if barium is no longer used.
Chemetics’ SRS is delivered as a complete skid mounted package including equipment, piping, instruments and valves, all pre-assembled and pre-wired. The skid mounted supply simplifies integration of the SRS into the plant and minimizes onsite installation costs.
Dozens of SRS units are operating throughout the world and the SRS is now considered to be the state-of-the-art method for sulphate removal.
