Electroplating is an electrochemical process where metal ions are transferred from a solution and are deposited as a thin layer onto surface of a cathode. Water quality is a key parameter in the plating/coating baths and requires very pure water for desirable product quality
Electroplating wastewater comes from surface plating operations where the metal is dipped in an electroplating solution of various types of metals and then rinsed. Typical plating includes Chrome, brass, nickel, cadmium, zinc, silver, copper, and gold. Discharge of water containing heavy metals is not permissible and hence various treatment methodologies are employed to remove these metal ions from effluent.
Membrane Group has extensive experience in treating waste waters from plating industry, and recycling the same to deliver high purity treated water for process use. In addition to this we also offer solutions for recovery of precious metals which can add value to our customers.
