Reducing Hexavalent Chrome in Wastewater

Reducing Hexavalent Chrome in Wastewater

The Challenge
Limco Airepair specializes in the manufacture and re-manufacture of a variety of heat transfer components, used in aerospace applications. Chromium creates hard, long-lasting surfaces and coatings. It’s an excellent material for high-performance heat exchanger components. However, as part of the refinishing processes, chromium also ends up in wastewater, from where it must be removed.

Metal Treatment and Hex Chrome Reduction with AquaPure

Metal Treatment and Hex Chrome Reduction with AquaPure

A well known military metal finishing operation in Pennsylvania was having trouble treating hexavalent chromate rinses that also had cadmium in them. Our team of experts set the system up to treat both the hex chrome and cadmium-bearing rinses in the same tank. The Aquapure I-300 was used for chrome reduction and the Aquapure P601 was used for treating cadmium to low levels and to ensure all chelated metals were reduced.
