A New Process For Sulfate Removal From Industrial Waters

Over 20 treatment plants in Europe now use the process, at flow rates up to 350 gpm. The CESR process essentially consists of four steps: 1. Initial precipitation of sulfate as gypsum 2. Precipitation of metals as hydroxides in a gypsum matrix 3. Additional sulfate removal via ettringite precipitation 4.

Sulfate Removal Process - Metso Outotec

Gypsum precipitation can be included before the sulfate removal stage when required. The process, built on easy-to-understand chemistry, can be applied to sulfate removal from gypsum saturated waters. Importantly, sulfate can be precipitated even when it is associated with highly soluble sodium and potassium sulfates.

Gypsum (CaSO42H2O) is the most common sulfate mineral on Earth and is also found on Mars. It is an evaporitic mineral that predominantly precipitates from brines. In addition to its precipitation in natural environments, gypsum also forms an undesired scale in many industrial processes that utilize or produce brines. Thus, better insights into gypsum formation can contribute to the ...
