Oil-water Separation & Organic Solvent Recovery for Copper-rich Solution, Monywa, Myanmar
Major Copper Company
Monywa, Myanmar
Separate oil from copper electrowinning solution, to recover organic solvent and improve copper quality.
• Flow Rate:  2X180 cum/hour
• Inlet Water Characteristic & Outlet Requirement:
Inlet water (mg/L) : oil content (petroleum) ≤100
Outlet water (mg/L): oil≤5
copper 40-50g/l; sulfuric acid 165-180 g/l;
working hours : 24 hours/day.
• Remove suspended solids and separate oil from copper-rich solution to meet customer’s requirement of no more than 5ppm.
• Recover valuable organic solvent, recycle water and improve product quality of copper.
Cooperated with an International Group, LAND ECO has designed and supplied the oil-water separation systems for the Copper Company located at Monywa Myanmar. During the electrowinning process, the product quality might observably be affected with “organic burning spot” or color-changing, due to the high content of oil and SS in copper-rich solution. If the oil content of copper-rich solution can be controlled within 10 mg/L, or even no more than 5mg/L, the product quality of copper would be apparently improved.
After study on the liquid and subject copper production processes, LAND ECO has designed and supplied the customized system, with the combination of ESPA filters to remove the SS and GAGS separator to separate oil, which perfectly lower the SS and oil content.
• The oil removal is up to 98%, which meets the customer’s requirement of less than 5 ppm.
• Recover valuable organic solvent, and recycle water.
• Improve the quality of copper.
• Large handling capacity to manage different working condition
• Simple operation and low maintenance, with no additional dosage.
• LAND ECO’s oil-water separation systems have been proven to be capable of working in various conditions.
