Abstract

This work is being conducted by real wastewater from disperse printing and reactive printing washing baths hot discharges mixing point and it was aimed to be treated and hot water recovery and reuse in the plant was targeted. For this purpose, pilot scale ceramic ultrafiltration/nanofiltration membrane system was used. In first ten cycle, ultrafiltration thorn nanofiltration membranes and in last four cycles only nanofiltration membrane was used. All samples were subjected to chemical oxygen demand, total hardness, total organic carbon, color and conductivity tests. Flux and temperature were also monitored throughout operations. According to obtained results, for ultrafiltration thorn nanofiltration cycles overall average removal efficiencies are 89%, 83.5%, 86.4% and 68% for chemical oxygen demand, color, total organic carbon and hardness, respectively. For only nanofiltration cycles, overall average removal efficiencies are 90.1%, 82.2%, 76.8% and 82% for chemical oxygen demand, color, total organic carbon and total hardness, respectively. Besides, treated wastewater was tested whether it is suitable for dyeing processes or not. And according to temperature difference between inlet and outlet streams, it can be said that it is feasible to use ceramic membrane technology for hot wastewater recovery and reuse.
